'M.R. James's Gothic tale is given a terrifying new edge by Louisa Albani's luminous and unearthly illutsrations. Prepare to be exquisitely afraid.' - Elizabeth Lowry, author of Dark Water


Originally written as a miniature book for the library of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House in Windsor, The Haunted Dolls’ House was first published in 1923 in the Empire Review, then subsequently reprinted in A Warning to the Curious (1925) and Collected Ghost Stories (1931). In this spine-chilling short tale, M. R. James brilliantly subverts the theme of man controlling life through creating miniature worlds. In his story, it is the dolls’ house that controls the viewer – in a powerful and compelling way.

Winter can be bleak, with its landscape of skeletal trees and dark skies. Sometimes, it's as if the shadows of the night pervade our very bones. So draw up a chair, light the lamp, and turn the pages of this pamphlet to find a most fitting story.
