The Ghost Stories
By M.R. James

A paper by Maria Purves which argues that James's intellectual outlook and choice of narrative style were determined by an autistic spectrum condition.
In this essay Ralph Harrington considers how James utilizes the ambiguity of technology, namely the railway system, as a tool for the depiction of his supernatural agents.
