Of Ghosts and Goblins



Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short works by the world's greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith

In this haunting collection, the phantoms and ghouls of Japanese folklore stalk the page. Lafcadio Hearn, a master storyteller, drew on traditional Japanese folklore, infused with memories of his own haunted childhood in Ireland, to create these chilling tales. They are today regarded in Japan as classics in their own right.
