About Lee Robert Adams

I am a writer and film critic living in Brno, Czech Republic.

I'm a Narrative Designer for a Game Developer and in my spare time I write movie reviews, articles and short fiction. I'm a regular contributor to the Brno Expat Centre blog, where I tailor my criticism to suit the tastes of my fellow expats, and champion Czech cinema whenever I can. I am also the co-founder of the Brno Writers Group, and the Brno Short Story Writing Contest, where I also served as a jury member.

My fiction tends towards the weird end of the scale, featuring elements of horror, supernatural, sci-fi, comedy and social realism, often in the same story. My current project is creating contemporary versions of the classic ghost stories by M.R James.

I read it
last night with great pleasure. It seems like an excellent
work. It seems remarkable to me how the author respects the Jamesian canon and at the same time he developes it in an interesting all-new direction. Good also the narrative rhythm, and, indeed, the balance between our author's innovative plot and the original structure of MRJ. I'm sure more stories will come of this same level,

Very enjoyable re-imagining of M.R. James classic. One of my favorites of his so I was a bit nervous but no need. I think it could introduce new readers to his work. Really enjoyed it

Review by: Chris Thorndycroft on Jan. 30, 2018 :
Interesting and entertaining re-imagining of the M. R. James classic. The language and attitudes of the characters make it clear from the get-go that this isn't going to be the Edwardian gentleman's cosy ghost story familiar to readers of James. Adams writes well and changes a few details to keep things fresh while simultaneously ensuing the old story still packs a wallop.

I love when a story is told so well it makes me forget that I'm not part of it. I could have stayed in there way longer. Good job!

Nice story. It was equally nice when MR James first published it in 1904.
