Did Kipling really write an inordinate number of weird tales or is it just that this collection has them all? The illustration on the spine is The Phantom Rickshaw, and so far there's also "They" and The Mark of the Beast and The House Surgeon and The Return of Imray. (But not, luckily, A Madonna of the Trenches, or The Luck House either.) Somehow I thought Kipling had written book after book about the army in India, but evidently not.
