Strange Tales From A Chinese Studio: The Classic Collection Of Eerie And Fantastic Chinese Stories Of The Supernatural
by Pu Songling; Herbert A. Giles (Trans.)
About This Book
Long considered a masterpiece of the eerie and fantastic, Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio is a collection of supernatural-themed tales compiled from ancient Chinese folk stories by Pu Songling in the 18th century. These tales of ghosts, magic, vampirism and other things bizarre and fantastic are wonderfully translated and annotated by the acclaimed Sinologist, Herbert A. Giles.
Already a true classic of Chinese literature and of supernatural tales in general, this new edition of the Giles translation converts the work to Pinyin for the first time and includes a foreword by Victoria Cass, who introduces this collection of haunted tales that are best read with the lights turned low on a quiet night.
