With an Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. This anthology of tales by Rudyard Kipling contains some of the most memorable and popular examples of the genre of which he is an undisputed master. The Man Who would be King (later adapted as a spectacular film) is a vivid narrative of exotic adventure and disaster. The other tales include the ironic, horrific, poignant and haunting. Here Kipling displays his descriptive panache and realistic boldness. Shrewd, audacious, abrasive and challenging, he remains absorbingly readable.

This is a slim volume of 14 stories, accompanied by an introduction and presented in a delightful cover. There's not much to say about it but good news.
