"A Best Book of 2009"—The Japan Times

"Bringing erudition to the eerie, Ross enlarges our vocabulary of the supernatural. From the unquiet graves of betrayed women and trees that grow hair to accounts of the skulls of drowned sailors biting at the oars of fishermen, Ross's explorations in the spookier corners and crevices of these islands unearth a trove of arcane detail. Along the way she provides insights into Japanese culture you are unlikely to find elsewhere."—Stephen Mansfield

Japanese Ghost Stories, formerly published under the title Supernatural and Mysterious Japan, is a collection of the eerie and terrifying from around Japan. This book opens a window into the hidden aspects of the Japanese world of the paranormal, a place where trees grow human hair, rocks weep and there's even a graveyard where Jesus is reputed to have been buried. Covering ancient and modern times, Japanese Ghost Stories offers not only good, old-fashioned scary stories, but some special insights into Japanese culture and psychology. Stories include:
  • In Search of the Supernatural
  • Psychic Stirrings
  • New Forays into the Mystic
  • Strange but True
  • Modern-Day Hauntings
  • Scenes of Ghosts and Demons
  • Edo-Era Tales
