Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book truly opens your eyes to Eastern culture and their views on the supernatural, many of which seem to respect the dead. This book left my spine tingling and had my heart racing for more. Can't wait to read volume two at some point." -Jeremy, Goodreads

"For whatever reason Asian horror is just creepier than any other horror I read or watch. The stories in this book are no exception." -Heather, Goodreads

About the Author

Tara A. Devlin studied Japanese at the University of Queensland before moving to Japan in 2005. She lived in Matsue, the birthplace of Japanese ghost stories, for 10 years, where her love for Japanese horror really grew. And with Izumo, the birthplace of Japanese mythology, just a stone's throw away, she was never too far from the mysterious.
