Finally on digital audio!

I used to own this on cassette! Many of these stories were my introduction to M R James as a young teen! I’m so pleased to find them now collected and released on audio! They’re excellent and Horden is a superb reader of these tales! Many other actors have tried (only Derek Jacobi has come close in my opinion). Superb!
