Review of “The Uncommon Prayer-Book” (1925)

M. R. James (writer).

Read in 2017.

Strange how the “youthful clerk” is named only after the police’s interview with him, where his lines are all elided. The undead avenger, quite a contrast from the rest of the story, is the most interesting part, and not very interesting at that: “two big spiders’ bodies in the holes” indeed.
