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.
Edogawa Rampo (Hirai Taro, 1894-1965) was the first modern writer of mysteries in Japan, and long-time president of the Japan Mystery Writers' Club. Rampo derived his pen name from the Japanese pronunciation of Edgar Allan Poe, his literary muse.
