    Title: BEST SHORT STORIES - RUDYARD KIPLING
    Author: KIPLING RUDYARD
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The diverse tales selected for this volume display the astonishing virtuosity of Rudyard Kipling's early writings. A Nobel prize-winner, Kipling was phenomenally productive and imaginative, displaying a literary mastery of idioms, technology and technical terms, exotic locations, and social range. He gained immense popularity, becoming (as these stories indicate) the knowledgeable spokesman for a wide public.

    Later, although Kipling's right-wing views increasingly incurred hostility, his creativity remained formidable. In this rich collection, we encounter bold realism, poignant nostalgia, dark comedy, the vividly horrific, the exuberantly fanciful and the disturbingly uncanny.

    Stories include:

    The Courting of Dinah Shadd / On Greenhow Hill / At the End of the Passage
    The Limitations of Pambe Serang / The Disturber of Traffic / The Finest Story in the World
    The Record of Badalia Herodsfoot / The Ship that Found Herself / The Maltese Cat
    Wireless / They / Mrs Bathurst / Below the Mill Dam
