Strange Tales from a Chinese Studioasian artmuseum store
Long considered a masterpiece of the eerie and fantastic, this book is a collection of supernatural-themed tales compiled from ancient Chinese folk stories in the 18th century.
These tales of ghosts, magic, vampirism and other things bizarre and fantastic make up a true classic of Chinese literature. This new edition of the Herbert A. Giles translation converts the work to Pinyin for the first time and includes a new foreword that properly introduces the book to both readers of Chinese literature and of hair-raising tales best read with the lights turned low on a quiet night.
