Description

In this collection of 14 stories, Ruskin Bond presents a picture of a 'haunted India' as seen and described by British writers, officials and travelers during the 19th and 20th centuries. Some ghosts are scary, some sad and some funny. All are entertaining.

Ruskin Bond’s readers range from nine to ninety. And if there are such things as ghosts there are probably a few who are reading him in the spirit world!

Over the years, Bond’s interest in the supernatural has led him to collect ghost stories from all over the world. As he says in his Introduction, Ghosts don’t require passports. They can turn up without papers in the most unexpected places!

It is fifty years since Ruskin Bond published his first story. He celebrates the occasion with this anthology.
