Have no fear my dear Gnostalgia readers, I have not slipped into the Christmas fru fru so popular this time on year. Instead I gather the Christmas ornamentation about the blog as one might indulge in the ugliest Christmas sweater contest at a party. My heart still longs for the dark return of the Krampus, and for the chill of a well-told Christmas ghost story.

To that end, I offer a story called “A Warning to the Curious”, a ghost story by M. R. James with Christopher Lee playing the part of James.
