More Monty

Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (unabridged)Naxos Audiobooks have released a new collection - Ghost Stories of an Antiquary. It's not, in fact, the whole collection, but that's not altogether surprising - I don't think any audio publisher has done the lot, or at least not yet. The readers are David Timson and Stephen Critchlow. You can hear an audio sample from 'Canon Alberic's Scrap-Book' on the site. Download cost is £11.

Thanks for the info. Derek Jacobi's readings for the BBC are still my favourites, along with the Christopher Lee - Ghost Stories For Christmas TV series.

Craftsman Audio have produced two 8 cd sets containing all of James' tales. They are read by David Collings.

Thanks Steve. I agree that Jacobi is the best - he's so assured and 'traditional' that I can imagine MRJ himself would have approved. There's just a deluge of stuff out there. Pity I can't get the original Michael Hordern readings on CD, though. Unless anyone out there knows different...

No sign of the Hordern readings getting an official release unfortunately. I've got a couple of the tape editions which I've put onto cd-r myself, so they'll need to do for the moment.

Here's yet another new ghostly audio cd, just ordered it myself at Amazon.
