This thrilling collection of seven Japanese ghost stories will captivate lovers of yokai stories!

These classic Japanese ghost stories are based on those written by famed author Lafcadio Hearn between 1890 and 1904. Here, they are retold by award-winning comic book writer Sean Michael Wilson, who has garnered a worldwide fan base for his manga adaptations of works of Japanese literature, including such classics as The Book of Five Rings and The Demon's Sermon on the Martial Arts .

Manga Yokai Stories includes: Nuke-kubi : A masterless samurai is trapped in a house haunted by headless goblins The Screen Maiden : A young man develops an obsession with a woman in a painting that almost kills him Corpse Rider : A woman's unburied corpse cannot rest until she has taken her revenge on the man who divorced her A Dead Secret : A young mother terrifies her family when she returns as a ghost, unable to find peace until she puts to rest a shocking secret she has left behind
Wilson's skillful adaptation of Hearn's ghostly tales--along with superb manga illustrations from UK-based Japanese artist Inko Ai Takita--make these fascinating stories come to life.

This book is in traditional Japanese reading order--from back to front--so that fans and manga lovers can enjoy an authentic reading experience.
