Publisher Comments:

Kwaidan translates as "weird tales," and that describes perfectly the haunting stories collected in this unforgettable volume. Author Lafeadio Hearn writes in prose so simple and direct it crawls like goosebumps up the reader's spine. The weird, ghostly legends collected here emit perfectly the chilly atmosphere of Old Japan. Stories include the one of Loichi, the blind biwa player who was called to perform for the dead; of Muso, the journeying priest who encountered a man-eating goblin; of the samurai who outwitted a cunning ghost. Beyond the 17 stories collected here are three "Insect Studies"--brilliant nature pieces in which humans compare all too closely with insects. Innocuous and harmless on the surface, these stories carry unforgettable echoes. Fans of Lafeadio Hearn will rejoice at this new edition of his collected works, while newcomers to his style can enter for the first time his very strange and haunting universe.
