Ruskin Bond’s short story “A Face in the Dark” can be called a supernatural story, or a horror story, a ghost story and a macabre tale. The author has created an atmosphere of suspense, fear and mystery to explore humanity’s collective fascination with the dark and the paranormal elements.

Narrated in third person narrative technique, the story is a short story in its true sense for its brevity, limited number of characters and more importantly, a single plot.

It is a horror or a ghost story. Here the author has kept the readers in suspense and made them imagine what might have happened after that.
