5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly journal devoted to supernatural author M.R. James and his imitators, April 22, 2012
Those of us who were lucky enough to subscribe to Rosemary Pardoe's "Ghosts and Scholars" (a journal devoted to M.R. James and his imitators) before it ceased publication after thirty-three editions, are still hoarding our issues. However, a few of them have shown up for sale on this website, including this 30th edition. Collect them all if you are a fan of M.R. James. Each issue contains original supernatural stories in the manner of MRJ, articles about MRJ's writings, reviews, and letters.

Rosemary Pardoe also maintains a 'Ghosts and Scholars' website which took over the content of this journal, after it ceased 'paper' publication.

"Ghosts and Scholars 30" (copyrighted in 2000) is a soft-cover booklet, 61 pages long, with Paul Lowe's front-cover illustration of MRJ's story fragment, "The Fenstanton Witch" (see above customer image). The back cover has another Paul Lowe illustration, this time from MRJ's famous ghost story "Casting the Runes." The two-page centerspread is Douglas Walters' illustration of MRJ's story "Number 13."

Contents of the 30th issue:

--"The Penny Drops" (story) by Ian Rodwell and Steve Duffy
--"Picnic at Bluebell Wood" (story) by Katherine Haynes
--"Yet Another Jamesian Clerihew" by David Longhorn
--"Jamesian Notes & Queries" ("that Whistle Again" by Jacqueline Simpson, "The Fall of the House of Wilson" by David Longhorn)
--"Illustrating 'Number 13': Notes on the Centrespread" by Douglas Walters
--"Mr Humphrey's Clock's Inheritance" (story) by Rhys Hughes
--"Not Found Among You" (story) C.E. Ward
--Reviews
--Letters
--"The Future of Ghosts & Scholars" by Rosemary Pardoe
