Count Magnus

Sunday 31 October 2021 at 8:00 pm

‘At first they hear nothing at all. Then they hear someone – you know how far away it is – they hear someone scream, just as if the most inside part of his soul was twisted out of him.’

The M R James Project travels to Scandinavia for this installment. In Count Magnus a travel-writer’s over-inquisitiveness leads to a breathless, diabolical chase from darkest Sweden to rural Essex. Denmark is the setting for Number 13, where a hotel room, with the famously unlucky number, conceals a ghastly and baffling secret.

★★★★ “Lloyd Parry is always absorbing, and catches the sense of dread that gives James his originality.” The Times

Suitable for ages 13+
