About the Author

Lafcadio Hearn (1850—1904) was a confirmed admirer of Asian sensibilities and practices. His taste for the eerie and bizarre materializes in his supernaturally focused works, including: In Ghostly Japan (1899), Shadowings (1900) and Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things (1904).

Foreword by Victoria B. Cass noted author and professor emeritus at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She is the author of Dangerous Women: Warriors, Grannies and Geishas of the Ming and In the Realm of the Gods: Lands, Myths, and Legends of China.
