They and other stories

Edited by Adam Roberts

Featuring Rudyard Kipling

Ten of the best Kipling stories specially selected by the acclaimed author and critic Adam Roberts, who also provides an introductory essay. This edition is part of the new Comma Classics series, launched to celebrate past masters of the short story with structural appreciations by contemporary practitioners. Roberts' essay is aimed at general readers, short fiction fans, and aspiring authors wanting to get to grips with the nuts and bolts of short story writing. This edition includes Kipling classics such as the mini gothic masterpiece ‘They’, ‘Mary Postgate, ‘The Man Who Would Be King’ and the brilliant ‘Mrs Bathurst’ – a story PG Wodehouse once said grows more and more baffling every time you read it.
