A View from a Hill

M.R. James, "A View from a Hill" in A Warning to the Curious and Other Ghost Stories (1925).

I was inspired to give M.R. James' "A View from a Hill" a re-read after coming across Sarah Coomer's fantastically eerie illustration. With a touch of weird science and a dab of necromancy, this story delivers some great characters, beautiful descriptions, and uncanny happenings. This is one of my favorite James stories, and it leaves enough unanswered questions to make readers work for their own interpretation
