Wailing Ghosts (Little Black Classics #07)

Wailing Ghosts (Little Black Classics #07) - Pu Songling Very short Chinese tales from Pu Songling, from Zibo in the 17th century concerning ghosts, ghoulies and quite a lot of fox-spirits.

If short, Chinese tales are your thing (or you think they may be) then these are definitely for you. Personally I found them to be repetitive, badly written and akin to many such other stories of a similar length. It is, however, nice to enjoy another culture, particularly when it's obvious there are themes that are genuinely universal and can be seen in tales like these all over the world.
