This fascinating text comprises a collection of very different short stories and poems by the seminal English writer, Rudyard Kipling. An interesting and unique set of writings decidedly situated in the realms of speculative fiction, these pieces will greatly appeal to those with an interest in antiquarian speculative writing and are not to be missed by fans of Kipling's prolific work. Of particular interest are The Night Mail and The House Surgeon, with The Night Mail being a sci-fi style narrative looking 100 years into the future of ariel transport, and The House Surgeon being a decidedly supernatural tale sure to engage and entertain the discerning reader. The sections of this book include: An Habitation Enforced, The Recall, Garm - A Hostage, The Power of the Dog, The Mother Hive, The Bees and the Flies, With the Night Mail, The Four Angels, A Deal in Cotton, The New Knighthood, The Puzzler, Little Foxes, Gallio's Song, The House Surgeon, and The Rabbi's Song. This book was originally published in 1909, and we are proud to republish it now complete with a new introductory biography of the author.
