H257: Casting The Runes by Escape


This week we’ll hear a story based on M.R. James’ Casting The Runes.  This radio adaptation of the story, first published in More Ghost Stories (1911), aired on Escape November 19, 1947.

  1. One of my favorites, Jim. Thanks so much for posting.

    Have read the short story which is excellent. Movie made with Dana Andrews (Night of the Demon) which is not bad at all.

    There is another radio adaptation from England. Unsure of exactly the name of the series (horror stories, or ghost stories) that is 15 minutes long (and VERY good also).

    This is an excellent choice! (as usual!)
