    Full of eerie elegance and the underlying mysterious spirit of Japanese culture, these four Japanese ghost stories are performed by award-winning author and storyteller Rafe Martin in his engaging and inimitable style. The collection begins with "The Boy Who Drew Cats", a tale about the power of faith in one's own creativity, and continues with "Kogi", a dream vision in which the listener becomes a whale.

    If you could sum up Ghostly Tales of Japan in three words, what would they be?

    interesting Ancient haunting


    What other book might you compare Ghostly Tales of Japan to and why?

    Chinese Tales, In Ghostly Japan and early Poe's work.
    The work is worn and rough in places. This might be do to the retelling of tails. They are good though and can compare with Poe when he was starting. Their is no intense moments with blood every wear, but a good ghost/mild horror story.
    The stories are in the same vain as Chinese Tales and In Ghostly Japan. Slow and with a warning to look out for Yokai everywhere (The ever present all is not as it seems tails.)


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rafe Martin?

    Any one


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In the shadows they leark


    Any additional comments?

    The Tales are good and can stand the test of time. While some are transparent others are not. The use of the background music is atrocious it covers the start of the story so you can not hear it as well as the ends. If you are interested in this kind of story from the region it is worth listing to.
