Interestingly, very little of this stuff is still in print, either public domain or commercial. Now *that* sounds like a case for some serious digitizing ...
BBC Radio did a very good series of readings of the ghost stories of Walter de la Mare. It's repeated fairly regularly on BBC Radio 4 Extra (their "audiobooks and drama" station).
