The Tractate Middoth by M. R. James

“I made a bit of noise on purpose, coughed and moved my feet. He turned round and let me see his face. Though for one reason or another I didn’t take in the lower part of his face, I did see the upper part, and it was perfectly dry and the eyes were very deep-sunk; and over them from the eyebrows to the cheek-bone there were cobwebs.”

– M. R. James, The Tractate Middoth
