153 editions published between 1928 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ghost stories and the supernatural often provided inspiration for Akutagawa's writing, and Kappa draws its name from a creature in Japanese folklore known for dragging unwary children to their deaths in rivers.
