M. R. James was a prolific and hugely successful author, now credited with redefining the ghost story form. By abandoning many of the formal gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more contemporary settings, James set the stage for future generations of writers. 

Originally published in 1904, “Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come 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 most underrated tales.

About the Author

M. R. James (1862–1936) was an English medieval scholar and provost of King’s College, Cambridge and Eton College. He is best remembered for his ghost stories, which redefined the genre. He abandoned the many gothic clichés of his predecessors and opted for more realistic, contemporary settings. His characters and plots, however, reflected his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the originator of the “antiquarian ghost story.”
