Summary

A cursed Sahib finds ghostly cats about his path and around his bed. Two young soldiers are plagued by a banjo-playing spirit. An elderly lady shoos away importunate children, but when they turn away from her, she falls to her knees and prays for mercy. And an otherwise gentle horse causes accidents everywhere she goes—accompanied by the hoofbeats of another invisible steed.

These and sixteen other tales, replete with ghostly children, haunted ships, treacherous amulets and phantom rickshaws, make up The Haunted Horse, the spookiest collection of stories from the Raj and beyond.
