In addition to his academic work, James began writing ghost stories in the late 19th century, and published several collections throughout his career, including Ghost Stories of an Antiquary and More Ghost Stories. His tales are known for their subtle psychological horror and use of antiquarian settings and objects. James passed away in 1936, but his legacy lives on through his enduringly popular ghost stories.
