Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things


Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Most of the following Kwaidan, or Weird Tales, have been taken from old Japanese books... Some of the stories may have had a Chinese origin ... But the Japanese story-teller, in every case, has so recolored and reshaped his borrowing as to naturalize it."

Hearn is best known for his supernatural tales.
