"A Best Book of 2009" —The Japan Times

Japanese Ghost Stories, formerly published under the title Supernatural and Mysterious Japan, is a collection of the eerie and terrifying from around Japan. This book opens a window into the hidden aspects of the Japanese world of the paranormal, a place where trees grow human hair, rocks weep and there's even a graveyard where Jesus is reputed to have been buried.

Covering ancient and modern times, Japanese Ghost Stories offers not only good, old-fashioned scary stories, but some special insights into Japanese culture and psychology.

Japanese ghost stories include:
  • In Search of the Supernatural
  • Psychic Stirrings
  • New Forays into the Mystic
  • Strange but True
  • Modern-Day Hauntings
  • Scenes of Ghosts and Demons
  • Edo-Era Tales
