A Pictorial Interlude

As those of you who follow me on Twitter will know, this week I've been with the awful cold that's currently doing the rounds, and hence my latest article has been somewhat delayed!

However rest assured it will be here soon, and we'll be embarking upon an epic literary exercise in which we shall catalogue all the diverse manifestations of the supernatural in the works of MR James.

In the meantime though, here are a brace of pictures by artist Russ Nicolson, who some of you may remember for his illustrations of the original Fighting Fantasy books and 1st edition AD&D's Fiend Folio. Above his his superb rendition of James' Count Magnus and the horrible vision below is the dread apparition from Rats.
