I have read a couple of Rudyard Kipling's books. The Jungle Book being one of them. When I saw this book I decided to by it. I figured it would be just as good. This book contains most of Rudyard kiplings Horror and Fantasy stories. There are a total of 50 of his stories and is 785 pages long.
There is an introduction written by Neil Gaiman and the book ahs been edited by Stephen Jones. There is also a short bio on Mr. Kipling at the end of the book.
The stories included in this collection all have a horror or psychological suspense to them. Some thes stories include "The Phantom 'Rickshaw, " "The Man Who Would Be King, " "The Tomb of His Ancestors, " and "On the Gate: A Tale of '16."
I enjoyed this book for the most part. The stories seemed to go fast since they are shorter then a novel but it seemed like it took me forever to get through this entire book. Some of the stories held my attention well but a lot of them I lost interest in very early into the story. Then I would have to start over with that story to understand what was going on. I'm sure a lot of it was the fact that the language and writing style are harder to understand.
