Stranger Stories

Satyajit Ray (Author)
Synopsis Stranger: Stories showcases some of Satyajit Ray’s memorable explorations into the twilight territories of the peculiar and the supernatural. These twenty extraordinary tales will send shivers up your spine, ensure you keep the lights on when you go to bed at night, and—occasionally—allow you the luxury of nervous laughter. In ‘Bhuto’, a ventriloquist’s dummy slowly but surely turns malign and more human than its master; in ‘The Pterodactyl’s Egg’ we meet a man who claims to have devised a way to travel, economy-class, into the fourth dimension; in ‘Anath Babu’s terror’ a ghost-hunter finds himself stalked by his terrifying quarry; and in ‘Shibu and the Monster’, a schoolboy has to figure out whether his maths teacher is really a demon or not, before time runs out…. This new edition also includes a bonus: a new translation of ‘Fotikchand’, Ray’s memorable adventure story about a kidnapped boy suffering from amnesia.

About the author

Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray (1921-92) was one of the greatest filmmakers of his time, renowned for films like Pather Panchali, Charulata, ARanyer Din Ratri and Ghare Baire. He was awarded the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1992, and in the same year, was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna. Ray was also a writer of repute, and his short stories, novellas, poems and articles, written in Bengalim have been immensely popular ever since they first began to appear in the children's magazine Sandesh in 1961. Among his most famous creation are the master sleuth Feluda and the scientist Professor Shonku.
