The Empty House by Ruskin Bond is a collection of eleven suspense stories written by various authors including one by Ruskin Bond. The other authors like Rudyard Kipling and R.L. Stevenson, I had read when I was a student.
Strange creatures and supernatural elements abound in this collection of stories. From exploring an empty house with dreadful secrets to the account of an eccentric children’s ayah and from vengeful animals carrying a spirit to a bunch of anxious children in a stark landscape—these are some of the most interesting stories about the supernatural. Selected and compiled by Ruskin Bond, this collection includes stories by authors like Rudyard Kipling, Algernon Blackwood, R.L. Stevenson and Alice Perrin, among others.
These stories have been chosen by Ruskin Bond himself and in the introduction, he mentions that this collection is for every reader who has been mersmerised by the possibility of something extraordinary living and breathing out there that we barely sense as we go about our everyday lives.
One word of warning, do not read it at night.
