    Rudyard Kipling's Tales of Horror and Fantasy...

    Rudyard Kipling was obviously a very prolific writer...I never knew that he wrote so many short stories in the horror/fantasy genre! this book, "Rudyard Kipling's Tales of Horror and Fantasy", is a great collection of short stories, some of the more memorable and well-known being the "Phantom Rickshaw", "The Mark of the Beast", "The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes", etc. These stories take place in British colonial India, making for a very interesting background for fantasy and horror stories. I highly recommend this book, it is very inexpensive (I found mine on the bargain bookshelf in B&N in hardcover), and the short stories are great and pretty quick to read.
