Puffin Classic: One Dozen Stories
The creator of immortal films, Satyajit Ray was also a writer of great repute. In this collection are some of his most extraordinary and gripping stories that will take readers to reals of adventure, fantasy, and horror. While 'Bonku Babu's Friend' deals with a mofussil schoolteacher's encounter with a friendly and somewhat awkward alien, 'Anath Babu's Terror' is the tale of a ghost hunter's foray into a haunted house. Meet Bipin Chowdhury, who seems to be suffering from a most disagreeable bout of amnesia, and read the amazing story of a carnivorous plant with a monstrous appetite in 'The Hungry Septopus.' This collection also includes two stories featuring everybody's favorite detective, Feluda. Published originally in Bengali as Ed Dojon Goppo, this collection- the first in a series of short stories written by the best-loved writer of mystery and suspense- is funny, sinister, and intriguing by turns and truly a must-have.
