This early work by Sir Hugh Clifford was originally published in 1916 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography as part of our Cryptofiction Classics series. 'The Were-Tiger' is a short story of a mysterious feline. Hugh Charles Clifford was born in Roehampton, London, England on 5th March 1866. Clinging to an ideal of benevolent imperialism untainted by commerce, while sympathizing deeply with the natives' desire for cultural commerce, Clifford produced a number of collections, including 'Bush-Whacking and other Sketches' (1901); 'A Free-lance of To-day' (1903), 'Sally: A Study, and Other Tales of the Outskirts' (1904), 'Saleh: A Sequel' (1908) and 'Malayan Monochromes' (1913), all of which deal with the interplay between British and Malay life. The Cryptofiction Classics series contains a collection of wonderful stories from some of the greatest authors in the genre, including Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London. From its roots in cryptozoology, this genre features bizarre, fantastical, and often terrifying tales of mythical and legendary creatures. Whether it be giant spiders, werewolves, lake monsters, or dinosaurs, the Cryptofiction Classics series offers a fantastic introduction to the world of weird creatures in fiction.
