Montague Rhodes James, who used the publication name M. R. James, 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.
"Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'" narrates the story which occupies the three days and two nights after Parkins has been installed in a room with two beds at the Globe Inn. His first day’s golf with Colonel Wilson is trying, and Parkins chooses to walk home alone along the seashore. Near it, he stumbles into a circle of mounds that are the remains of the monastery… Get ready for a delicious tale of the supernatural!
