‘He was described as being the size of a bull-buffalo, with a belly that reached the ground, and a white moon between his ears, true tokens of the man-eater, as every native of India knows. He was said to have the power of assuming different shapes, and to lure his prey by the imitation of a human voice…’ From ‘The White Tiger’ by Alice Perrin

Selected and edited by Ruskin Bond, this collection of eerie stories is sure to set your nerves racing.
