M. R. James was a prolific and hugely successful author, nowcredited with redefining the ghost story form. Byabandoning many of the formal gothic clichés of his predecessors and using morecontemporary settings, James set the stage for future generations of writers.
Originally published in 1904, "Oh, Whistle, and I'llCome to You, My Lad" is the story of a man who digs up a bronze whistle, which,after blowing it, leads to unexpected consequences. Haunting yet realistic,"Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad" ranks among his best and mostunderrated tales.
