五个故事,五个地点,那些游荡的亡灵,让人恐惧,也令人沉思。

Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries provide settings for unbearable menace, from creatures seeking retribution and harm. These stories have lost none of their power to unsettle and disturb. 

本书收录了“英国有史以来好的灵异小说作家”蒙塔古•罗兹•詹姆斯的五个故事。在这五个故事中,死者可能随时随地以最奇怪的方式到来。五个故事发生在五个地点:牛津某一学院,威廉斯先生正在那儿饶有兴趣在看着一幅古旧的画作;或者光天化日之下来到年轻的汤姆森先生度假住的一家小旅馆。爱德华•邓宁先生的房间里灯灭了,他伸手去找火柴,黑暗中他的手触到的是什么?乡绅鲍尔斯的妻子和继子要问个问题,可有鲍尔斯知道答案,可你怎么去向一个躺在坟墓里的死人问呢?当帕金斯教授吹起他拾到的一个很旧的口哨时,是只有风作答,还是有别的东西?一种你见不着、听不见却又难以想象有多么可怕的东西……

The Unquiet Grave contains five stories from M. R, Jame. Considered by many to be the most terrifying writer in English, his classic supernatural tales draw on the terrors of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash terrible forces, often in closed rooms and night-time settings where imagination runs riot.

蒙塔古·罗兹·詹姆斯(1862-1936)为英国研究中世纪的学者,生于肯特郡,先后担任过剑桥大学的国王学院及伊顿公学院长,主要研究领域为中世纪宗教及历史。但他最为世人熟知的是其创作的鬼故事,他的鬼故事多与宗教及历史结合,给人一种极强的真实感。

M. R. James (1 August 1862 – 12 June 1936) was an English author,  medievalist scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–18), and of Eton College(1918–36). Though James's work as a medievalist is still highly regarded, he is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are regarded as among the best in the genre. 

几年来,威廉斯先生一直在牛津大学博物馆工作,为该馆不断地增加其本已出名的有关英国乡村住房和教堂方面绘画作品的收藏。收集有关住房和教堂绘画作品本无任何惊人之处,可威廉斯先生却发现即使是这样一项很平静的工作也有其意想不到之处。

For several years Mr Williansm worked for the museum at the University of Oxford, enlarging its already famous collection of drawings and pictures of English country houses and churches. It is hard to imagine anything less alarming than collecting pictures of houses and churches, but Mr Williams found that even this peaceful work had its unexpected dark corners.
