Episode 32--The Phantom Rickshaw

This week, I take you to the dark side of India with Rudyard Kipling's tale of love and revenge, The Phantom Rickshaw

Originally published in 1888, in the anthology The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Eerie Tales, the titular story has become one of the best known, and most reprinted, ghost stories of all time. Kipling's contributions to the horror genre cannot be understated. Though he is best known as the author of The Jungle Book We can also thank him for some intelligent scare fests.

As always, you can listen to the show here, or download it from
