The first three tales, Thy Servant a Dog, The Great Play Hunt and Toby Dog, are narrated by the Black Aberdeen Terrier Boots, and concern the adventures of himself and his canine friends Slippers, Ravager and Toby, their wars with Kitchen Cat and their incomprehension of the ways of the humans in their lives. A Sea Dog is a nautical tale about Malachi, who sees action in the North Sea, and Teem - a Treasure-Hunter tells of a little French dog with a nose for truffles. The collection also includes three poems, The Supplication of the Black Aberdeen, His Apologies and The Power of the Dog (included for the first time).

Rudyard Kipling was a major figure of English literature, who used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling, one of England's greatest writers, was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882. He began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent, such as 'The Phantom Rickshaw' and 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes', and his most famous weird story is 'The Mark of the Beast' (1890), about a man cursed to transform into a were-leopard. This Masterwork, edited by Stephen Jones, Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist, collects all Kipling's weird fiction for the first time; the stories range from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.

Throughout his life Rudyard Kipling was fond of dogs, and while they featured prominently in early tales such as 'The Dog Hervey' and ' Garm - a Hostage', he later came up with the innovative idea of writing a story from the perspective of a dog, resulting in the hugely successful 'Thy Servant a Dog', narrated by an Aberdeen terrier named Boots. This edition contains a wealth of material about the author's life and works, notes and a bibliographic section.

Rudyard Kipling here turns his hand to the canine world. Each delightful story centres around a particular dog - whether 'Toby Dog', - 'The Black Aberdeen', or 'A Sea Dog' - and reveals the creature's relation to his human counterpart. The works demonstrate once again Kipling's remarkable skill at delighting adults and children alike.
