Yurei Attack! : The Japanese Ghost Survival Guide
by Hiroko Yoda and Matt Alt and Shinkichi




Overview -
Yurei Attack is a nightmare-inducing one-stop guide to Japan's traditional ghosts and spirits.

Surviving encounters with angry ghosts and sexy specters. Haunted places. Dangerous games and how to play them. And more importantly, a guided tour of what awaits in the world of the dead.

Yurei is the Japanese word for ghost. It's as simple as that. They are the souls of dead people, unable--or unwilling--to shuffle off this mortal coil. Yurei are many things, but friendly isn't the first word that comes to mind. Not every yurei is dangerous, but they are all driven by emotions so uncontrollably powerful that they have taken on a life of their own: rage, sadness, devotion, a desire for revenge, or even the firm belief that they are still alive.

This book, the third in the authors' bestselling Attack series, after Yokai Attack and Ninja Attack gives detailed information on 39 of the creepiest yurei stalking Japan, along with detailed histories and defensive tactics should you have the misfortune to encounter one.

Japanese ghosts include:

  • Oiwa, The Horror of Yotsuya
  • Otsuyu, The Tale of the Peony Lantern
  • The Lady Rokujo, The Tale of Genji
  • Isora, Tales of Moonlight and Rain
  • Orui, The Depths of Kasane

Book 3 of 3 in the Yokai Attack series. Others include Ninja Attack and Yokai Attack .
