  • Description
    There is an inexplicable pull that we feel towards stories about horror and mystery. The fear of the unknown, coupled with the thirst to know the ‘truth’, keeps us turning page after page. This is a collection of mysterious horror stories that will make you hold your breath at every turn and gasp with shock at every twist. From a duel gone horribly wrong, and a lodger who conducts mysterious experiments in the dead of night; to a fiendish cat who is out for revenge, and a waxwork that eerily seems alive—these tales will make your hair stand on end. Written by the masters of the genre and selected and compiled by Ruskin Bond, here are gems from Wilkie Collins, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and Rudyard Kipling, among others. Dare to read The Duel when you are home alone?

He is the author of several bestselling short stories, novellas, collections, essays and children’s books; and has contributed a number of poems and articles to various magazines and anthologies. At the age of twenty-three he won the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys Prize for his first novel, The Room on the Roof. He was also the recipient of the Padma Shri in 1999, Lifetime Achievement Award by the Delhi Government in 2012 and the Padma Bhushan in 2014. Born in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar, Shimla, New Delhi and Dehradun. Apart from three years in the UK, he has spent all his life in India, and now lives in Landour, Mussoorie, with his adopted family.
