Ghost Tales with Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai

If I'm "The Kimono Lady", Zack Davisson is most definitely several ranks higher than me, probably "The Ghost King"!

Zack runs an excellent blog called Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, dedicated to his own translations and posts about Japanese ghosts, monsters, and weird tales in traditional folklore.

Zack, who wrote his Japanese Studies master's thesis on ghost tales, effortlessly manages the difficult balancing act of writing entries that are both packed with detailed information and written in an engaging, casual style that's friendly to both knowledgeable readers and those new to Japanese history and folklore.

If you haven't run across his blog yet, stop by and take a look. :)
