About the Author

Songling Pu (1640—1715) was an author during China's Qing Dynasty. He spent the bulk of his life working as a private tutor, during which time he gathered and re-wrote the stories published to great acclaim in this book.

Herbert A. Giles (1845—1935) was one of the most acclaimed sinologists of his era and the Chair of Chinese at Cambridge. He is one of the creators of the "Wade-Giles" system of romanization, the author of several Chinese-English dictionaries and translator of numerous classics.
