More Description

This book conjures up images of ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and interweaves their spooky stories with the folklore, superstitions, and traditions of old Japan. It also includes nonfiction reflections, such as "Japanese Buddhist Proverbs", a primer of Buddhist thinking, and "Incense", a meditation on the evanescent substance that can summon spirits as well as banish them.
