    A Warning to the Curious The Nightfloaters Explained - Duration: The Other Regina - Duration: 18 minutes. Ghost, Horror Stories and Creepypastas, all in homage to my illustrious ancestor.   Directed by Lawrence Gordon Clark. With Peter Vaughan, Clive Swift, Julian Herington, John Kearney. An archeologist goes treasure hunting along the English coast in search of a lost, fabled crown that supposedly helps protect Great Britain against invasion/10().

    In Casting the Runes and Other Ghost Stories, Michael Cox notes that the manuscript for the "A Warning to the Curious" is untraced, but that it was sold to Elkin Matthews at the Sotheby's auction in Whether Elkin Matthews was acting as an agent, or making a speculative purchase, is unknown. Title Date Author/Editor Publisher/Pub. Series ISBN/Catalog ID Price Pages Format Type Cover Artist Verif; A Warning to the Curious and Other Ghost Stories.

      There is an imaginative variety of ghouls and ghosts and a common theme is around the dangers of curiosity – A Warning for the Curious perhaps, as indeed one of the stories is titled. In my most recent catalogue from The Folio Society there is a gorgeous edition of M.R. James ghost stories that I’ve been lusting after.   This episode explores M R James’ classic English ghost story, “A Warning to the Curious”. England has an enduring love for ghost stories, and James is the towering figure in the field. We spend some time talking about the man himself and how his work has retained its appeal.
