Details: Product Description Terror. The word conjures up images of ghosts, monsters, half-creatures and phantoms. But terror doesn’t always stem from the paranormal. It can turn up in unexpected ways in everyday life, clutching at our heart with icy fingers! Feel the blind panic of Hansard, a young student of Forestry, when he finds himself in the grip of a maneating tiger; the desperation of a Navy officer and his comrades in a slowly flooding chamber of a sinking submarine; or the terror of two children stuck at the bottom of a cave, several miles under the earth, and unable to find a way out. Written by masters of the genre and compiled by Ruskin Bond, here are gems from Sylvia Green, R.L. Stevenson, C.A. Kincaid and Aubrey Wade, among others. An Underground Walk is a collection of stories sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. About the Author Ruskin Bond is known for his signature simplistic and witty writing style. He is the author of several bestselling short stories, novellas, collections, essays and children’s books; and has contributed a number of poems and articles to various magazines and anthologies. At the age of twenty-three, he won the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys Prize for his first novel, The Room on the Roof. He was also the recipient of the Padma Shri in 1999, Lifetime Achievement Award by the Delhi Government in 2012 and the Padma Bhushan in 2014.
