Mr. Edward Dunning is a researcher studying "The Truth of Alchemy" by Mr. Karswell. He starts seeing the name "John Harrington" everywhere he goes and finds out that Harrington was working on the same book before suddenly dying in an accident. Dunning gets in touch with Harrington’s brother who is ready to help out. He wants to save Dunning but what from? It turns out that Karswell has cursed both the researchers by casting runes over them. Harrington could not save himself. Will Dunning succeed?

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

M. R. James was an English writer who lived in the period 1862-1936. He is one of the best ghost story writers and he transformed the genre by introducing a new way of writing. He avoided the gothic clichés and set his tales in a more realistic contemporary settings so that he could make the reader afraid of encountering similar supernatural or terrifying events.
M. R. James’ works gained wide popularity and some of his best known ghost story collections are "Ghost Stories of an Antiquary", "A Thin Ghost and Others" and "A Warning to the Curious and Other Ghost Stories". M. R. James’ talent impressed even the great horror stories writer H. P. Lovecraft, who described James’ ghost stories as the peak of the genre.
