More About Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edogawa Rampo; James B. Harris; Patricia Welch
 
 
 
Overview
This collection of mystery and horror stories is regarded as Japan's answer to Edgar Allan Poe.
Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination, the first volume of its kind translated into English, is written with the quick tempo of the West but rich with the fantasy of the East. These nine bloodcurdling, chilling tales present a genre of literature largely unknown to readers outside Japan, including the strange story of a quadruple amputee and his perverse wife; the record of a man who creates a mysterious chamber of mirrors and discovers hidden pleasures within; the morbid confession of a maniac who envisions a career of foolproof -psychological- murders; and the bizarre tale of a chair-maker who buries himself inside an armchair and enjoys the sordid -loves- of the women who sit on his handiwork.
Lucid and packed with suspense, Edogawa Rampo's stories found in Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination have enthralled Japanese readers for over half a century.
Mystery stories include:
  • The Human Chair
  • The Caterpillar
  • Two Crippled Men
  • The Traveler with the Pasted Rag Picture
