New Work on M. R. James
It was back in January 2008 that I saw a Call For Submissions by Patrick J. Murphy (Miami University) and Fred Porcheddu (Denison University), for an "edited collection on the fiction of M.R. James, tentatively titled Medievalists Red the Antiquary: Essays on the Fiction of M.R. James." Then there was a long period with no news about the project, which has now transmogrified into a book-in-progress authored by the two academics. So far two articles have appeared in print, with two more presently being considered for publication. It was my discovery of the second article, in the recently published new volume of Studies in Medievalism volume 22, that prompted me to check for other articles and I found the recent interview with Murphy and Porcheddu at A Podcast to the Curious. Here's a direct link to the interview.
