Count Magnus

Two Ghost Stories by M R James • Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

At first they hear nothing at all. Then they hear someone – you know how far away it is – they hear someone scream, just as if the most inside part of his soul was twisted out of him.

The M R James Project travels to Scandinavia for this installment.

In Count Magnus a travel-writer’s over-inquisitiveness leads to a breathless, diabolical chase from darkest Sweden to rural Essex.

Denmark is the setting for Number 13, where a hotel room, with the famously unlucky number, conceals a ghastly and baffling secret.

**** Lloyd Parry is always absorbing, and catches the sense of dread that gives James his originality.
