An incredible and fascinating collection of tales and Sanskrit folk legends from India by Richard F Burton. While the stories included are all adapted by Burton and not original to his imagination, they have endured time and remain popular today. This collection features the famous Baital Pachisi, a Hindu perspective on vampires originally written, or told, in the 11th-century.

 

According to ‘The Encyclopedia of Vampires,’

“In his translation, Burton included 11 of what he judged to be the best of the ‘baital’ tales. They deal with Indian customs, manners, and religious, and magical practices. At the end of each tale, the ‘baital’ poses questions that are like riddles.”
