Please take into consideration that what we today call "Horror & Fantasy" wasn't the same back in Mr. Kipling's day.

While there are many outstanding stories here, Jones in his desire for completeness included a lot of really bad stories. The introduction by Neil Gaiman (a current, well-regarded fantasy and horror author) mentions that Rudyard Kipling has fallen out of favor because of some of his political views.

  • I am a huge fan of Kipling. Poetry, prose, short story, novella. Doesn’t matter, if he writes it I shall read. With that said, I also love classic horror/macabre/scary short stories and read many. Kipling’s work isn’t scary in a modern way. They almost all have a disturbing scare which I prefer but yet they also touch on things he always touched on, societal hypocrisy his world opinions on others ways of life and lies etc.... it has taught me much because I have had to google a lot of information for stories that are based in India. But even if I don’t understand that story specifically they flow beautifully and clearly stand as a Kipling piece of work. If you like Gunga Din, Mark of the Beast, The man who would be King etc you will like these. If not, pass. He is much different here than in his poetry or children stories.

  • This review is to address the formatting issues with the Kindle edition of this book. So far I've read 6 of the tales in this collection and each one had annoying text conversion problems. That may seem inconsequential, but they do detract from the reading experience and pull you out of the story. There are numerous cases where the incorrect word is inserted and many instances where words run together without spaces. While I expect these things in free public domain ebooks, they are very disappointing to find in a commercial publication. I'm not sure how many of these tales are included in the Delphi Classics edition of Rudyard Kipling, but I wish I had purchased it instead. I own several of their other author collections and find them to be great values, plus they work to make them error free... Works of Rudyard Kipling (Illustrated)

  • Rudyard Kipling is one of those timeless writers of the Victorian-Edwardian era that is still great 100 years later. This book of his Horror & Fantasy genre' stories is a great addition to any Kipling collection.
    Please take into consideration that what we today call "Horror & Fantasy" wasn't the same back in Mr. Kipling's day. Instead of the gore-fest & the waving of spells by wizards & witches, it carries more on a more psychological line of thought. An example being
    "The Phantom Rickshaw".The story centers around a man that recounts his encounters with, you guessed it, the phantom of an acquaintance he once knew & how it had thrown his whole life into disarray.
    I won't go on a rant, but if you like well written & very visual settings, As Kipling does oh so well, I suggest when you see this book, purchase it! It's a light, very different & enjoyable read. :)

  • Excellent book for getting a flavor of the Indian Raj period of time when England ruled the world. It takes a short time to get into the way the book is written in the vernacular of the time, but it gives you a deeper feeling of how the characters think and their backgrounds. "The Man Who Would Be King" is one of the stories. This alone makes it worth the purchase of the book.

  • Having had this book in my library as a young boy, I got this copy for my great grandson to cut his teeth on when reading from this genre. It was nice to skim through, and then discuss it with him after he had his mother's permission to read an "adult" book. The tease of the forbidden enhanced his enthusiasm. He loved it as much as I did, forgetting the anticipation for "naughty parts". I cautioned him about bad dreams, but he admitted to none.

  • Good condition and as described. GREAT READ - variety of period scary, funny, heartfelt, imaginative tales.

  • Kipling is a must-read, writing about another place and time. This book of tales is up to his usual standards, and I'm enjoying it very much. It is recommended on two bases: one, the work of a great writer, and two, stories of the interaction of two very different cultures, the 19th century colonial English, against that of ancient India (in this book of tales).

  • Even though most of the tales can be found scattered across public domain books. It's nice to have them collected in a single ebook.
    The tales themselves deserve five stars. They are mostly about the horror that can only be sired by pettines in the human soul.
    The introduction by Neil Gaiman captures the zeitgeist of the compiltation and it's a nice plus.
