Imagine a universe constructed in layers: At the top is Heaven - where the gods live. Beneath is the Earth, where people dwell. And beneath the Earth lies a magical realm of witches, vampires, ghosts and immortal foxes capable of assuming human form. This is the universe of Chinese folktales. The nine tales in this book show what happens when the worlds of earth and the supernatural collide. The cast of characters, both humble and fantastic, include: A young man willing to spend a night in a haunted mansion to prove the spirit world does not exist; fox faeries wearying of their immortality and craving the uncertainty of human experience and, a bored husband looking for excitement, but finding mortal danger instead. 118 pages. The binding is stiff, with inner flaps front and back. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
