Publisher's Summary

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.

The House-Surgeon is a strange tale about a haunted house. Not that there is an actual ghost in evidence. Indeed, nobody has ever died in the house since it was originally built. But a strange all-pervading depression haunts the place intermittently which overwhelms its occupants.

When the current owner of the house tells the strange tale of the house to a fellow passenger, Mr. Perseus, on a trans-Atlantic steamer, he invites him down to the house to experience the horrible phenomenon himself. Mr. Perseus sets out to discover what lies behind this strange ghostless haunting.

    Story
    "It's Kipling, but the narration is really poor!"

    You can't go wrong with Kipling. A lovely short story, but the narration is very sing-song and poorly metered. It comes in inexplicable pulses. Very distracting but doable because it's short.
