Rudyard Kipling, a major figure of English literature, used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling is considered one of England's greatest writers, but was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882, where he began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent: "The Phantom Rickshaw," "The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes," and his most famous horror story, "The Mark of the Beast" (1890). This masterwork collection, edited by Stephen Jones (Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist) for the first time collects all of Kipling's fantastic fiction, ranging from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.

Rudyard Kipling is one of those timeless writers of the Victorian-Edwardian era that is still great 100 years later. This book of his Horror & Fantasy genre' stories is a great addition to any Kipling collection.
Please take into consideration that what we today call "Horror & Fantasy" wasn't the same back in Mr. Kipling's day. Instead of the gore-fest & the waving of spells by wizards & witches, it carries more on a more psychological line of thought. An example being
"The Phantom Rickshaw".
