Summary

Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination contains nine bloodcurdling tales by the author who is widely regarded as the father of Japanese mystery writing. These spine-tingling tales include the strange story of a quadruple amputee and his perverse wife; the record of a man who creates a mysterious chamber of mirrors and discovers hidden pleasures within; and the morbid confessions of a maniac who envisions a career of foolproof opsychologicalo murders. Lucid and packed with suspense, the stories of Edogawa Rampo have enthralled Japanese readers for over half a century.
