Three superb ghost stories by master storyteller, Rudyard Kipling.

“The Finest Story in the World”: When the young bank clerk Charlie Mears comes up with an innovative idea for a new story, he has no notion of just how amazing his tale is. Inspired by dreams which are memories of former lives, he takes us back to the vivid and brutal world of ancient Greece. But Charlie’s own literary skill is not equal to the task of writing his novel. His friend must take on the challenge of extracting the finest tale in the world from the reluctant and ever-distracted brain of the young clerk. But just as there seems to be some progress, something most unexpected occurs.

“The Phantom Rickshaw”: An uncanny tale from the Raj. When Jack Pansay’s affair with Mrs. Keith-Wessington comes to an unseemly end, he believes the matter to be over. But Mrs. Wessington’s obsession with him continues year after year, as she stalks him in her rickshaw around the walks of Simla. When Pansay announces his engagement to Kitty Mannering, the trauma is too much for Mrs. Wessington and she dies shortly afterwards. But this is only the beginning of Pansay’s torment. From now on, the ghost of Mrs. Wessington appears in her rickshaw wherever he goes in her eternal quest to win him back.

“They”: A long underrated masterpiece of Kipling’s brilliant narration, “They” is a hauntingly beautiful tale of eternal love and loss. During a motor trip, the writer chances upon a country house which is visited by elusive and mysterious children, and meets the equally mysterious blind lady who lives there. Fascinated, enchanted, and yet somehow unsettled by the experience, he finds himself repeatedly drawn back to the house until finally the uncanny truth dawns.
