About the Event
On Wednesday 1st November, as close as we could get to Halloween, Simon Loxley will introduce us to his book, A Geography of Horror: the Ghost Stories of M. R. James and the Suffolk Landscape. M. R. James’s classic, spine-tingling tales took the genre of supernatural horror out of its traditional gothic settings into the everyday to make the mundane terrifying. Some of his best stories use the landscape of Suffolk, a county he knew and loved, particularly its coastline. The book examines James’ work and its relationship to the genre, focusing in particular on the Suffolk stories and their geography. Simon is also a graphic designer, educator, lecturer and writes on design history and typography. Read more here
