 About the Book 

Among the many tales popular in India, one collection of stories has existed not only in Sanskrit, but also in almost all the vernaculars. This is the Baital Pachchisi, or Twenty-Five Tales of a Demon (or Sprite). They are narrated by the sprite, who haunts the cemeteries, to Vikram, the king of Oojein. John Platts is among the first to translate this collection into English from the original Sanskrit.
