A spine-tingling collection from master anthologist Ruskin Bond, who brings together the best of the fantastic and the bizarre.

Far from being mere ghostly tales, these stories focus on the truly uncanny: that fear of being watched when you’re alone, unexplained appearances, legends about vampirism handed through generations.

From sleepy little English towns to exotic beaches in hawaii a Quaint Indian hill station to the wild lrish moors, come tales that are whispered at night, around campfires, passed fro traveler to traveler, stories from all corner of the world recounted by people who have witnessed the eerie power of the supernatural.

Apart from providing sleepless nights and hair- raising moments, this omnibus is a fitting tribute to the fascinating sway that the unknown has always held over us.
