Marion Crawford, and An Episode of Cathedral History by M. R. James.The Vampyre sees a young English gentleman accompanying an aristocrat on a tour of Europe. But Aubrey soon discovers that the charming Lord Ruthven is not what he appears to be. In The Wailing Well, three boy scouts find more than they bargained for when they search for a haunted well, while For the Blood is the Life tells the story of a mysterious mound and a murdered girl's dreadful vengeance. And in An Episode of Cathedral History, the uncovering of a stone tomb unleashes a terrible force of darkness.Evocatively read by three of our finest actors, and with atmospheric music, these bloodcurdling tales are perfect listening for long winter nights.

First appearing around 1400, The Alliterative Morte Arthur, or The Death of King Arthur, is one of the most widely beloved and spectacularly alliterative poems ever penned in Middle English. Now, from the internationally acclaimed translator of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, comes this magisterial new presentation of the Arthurian tale, rendered in unflinching and gory detail. Following Arthur's bloody conquests across the cities and fields of Europe, all the way to his spectacular and even bloodier fall, this masterpiece features some of the most spellbinding and poignant passages in English poetry. Never before have the deaths of Arthur's loyal knights, his own final hours, and the subsequent burial been so poignantly evoked. Echoing the lyrical passion that so distinguished Seamus Heaney's Beowulf, Simon Armitage has produced a virtuosic new translation that promises to become both the literary event of the year and the definitive edition for generations to come.
