An encyclopedia of evil entities and folkloric fiends spanning the length and breadth of India, complete with 60 spooky illustrations. Meet the killer robots built with Roman engineering technology that once guarded the relics of the Buddha, and the ghost of a motorcyclist whose Enfield Bullet is venerated at a highway temple in Rajasthan. Beware the fearsome yeti married to a Himalayan spirit-teacher, and the diabolical entities conjured into existence by the simultaneous deaths of seven tigers. Quake in your boots at the thought of night-flying Vedic necromancers, call-centre employees from beyond the grave, and the dreaded Ngalei Ahmaw of Maraland, whose victims’ heads detach themselves from their bodies at night and go wandering in search of blood ... AND MORE!
