Most of us have heard stories about haunted houses. Some brave souls might also have visited one. Gloomy interiors, rickety staircases, dusty mirrors and moth-eaten furniture with cobwebs all around—apart from these, there’s hardly anything ‘haunted’ about these houses. Many people pooh-pooh the existence of actual ghosts, not realizing that the supernatural is way beyond our grasp. This is what happens with Attwater, who, disbelieving of spirits, rents a haunted room and finds out to his horror what games dark forces play! Hair-raising stories from famous masters of horror-writing are brought together in this anthology by your favourite author and ghost-hunter, Ruskin Bond. So what are you waiting for? Don’t you want to know what’s lurking around the corner?
