The chilling stories in this book present a genre of literature largely unknown to readers outside Japan and combine the quick tempo of Western fiction with the rich fantasy of the East.

Lucid and packed with suspense, the stories of Edogawa Rampo have enthralled Japanese readers for over half a century"--"@en ;
