Really want to know about Cambridge?

If so, grab these; local publisher Oleander Press is republishing a couple of out-of-print local titles this month, both with close ties to horror master MR James:

Tedious is a collection of spooky stories written in 1919 by the then Master of Jesus College, Arthur Gray, under the pseudonym Ingulphus and mainly set in the college and local area over the preceeding 500 years. Full details here.

And Stoneground is another collection by EG Swain who had been Chaplain of King's College. Set on the edge of the Fens, just up the road, they are very entertaining and atmospheric tales of the supranatural. Get details here.
