Details: Product Description The Shadow on the Wall brings together Ruskin Bond’s most chilling works of fright and terror. The twenty-one stories in this book include classics such as ‘A Face in the Dark’, ‘The Chakrata Cat’, and ‘Susanna’s Seven Husbands’, along with a dose of eerie new tales that have never been published before. In ‘The Shadow on the Wall’, a young writer finds an unlikely first reader in a ghost; ‘The Doppelgänger’ is a creepy account of beings that occupy two places at once; ‘Haunted Places’ is a spooky look at the world around us. From horrifying stories of chance encounters with hill station spirits, hauntings in abandoned mansions, malignant and mischievous jinns and shape-shifters, to prets and Mussoorie’s Bhoot-aunty, the twenty-one tales in The Shadow on the Wall showcase Ruskin Bond’s talent as a master of horror fiction.
