This selection covers the full range of Kipling's extraordinary short stories throughout his career.
Ranging in subject matter from the Indain to the Occult, from children to animals, from domestic comedy to public tragedy, each is masterly in its way.
Above all, they convey a wonderful sense of life and energy and reveal Kipling as a far greater and more diverse writer than most people suspect.
This is an ideal gift-book, perfect for reading in short snatches or long stretches, according to taste.

Review by chrisalgeo
adventure/mystery/horror take your pick. His collection has something for everyone. They were written ages ago but still hold you interest, sort of like Christie
