Nobel prize-winning writer Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Influenced by experiences in both India and England, Kipling s stories celebrate British imperialism and the experience of the British soldier in India.
Amongst Kipling s best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems Mandalay and Gunga Din. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel prize for literature (1907) and was amongst the youngest to receive the award.

A cursed Sahib finds ghostly cats about his path and around his bed. Two young soldiers are plagued by a banjo-playing spirit. An elderly lady shoos away importunate children, but when they turn away from her, she falls to her knees and prays for mercy. And an otherwise gentle horse causes accidents everywhere she goes—accompanied by the hoofbeats of another invisible steed.
These and sixteen other tales, replete with ghostly children, haunted ships, treacherous amulets and phantom rickshaws, make up The Haunted Horse, the spookiest collection of stories from the Raj and beyond.
