  The book is structured into chapters each dealing with a specific writer: Mary Shelley, James Fenimore Cooper, Washington Irving, and Felicia Hemans.

The stories of M. R. James continue to influence many of today's great supernatural writers, including Stephen King (who discusses James in the non-fiction book Danse Macabre) and Ramsey Campbell, who edited Meddling with Ghosts: Stories in the Tradition of M. R. James and wrote the short story "The Guide" in tribute.
