Shelves: shorts, supernatural
Disclaimer: I have a story, 'Midway', in this anthology.

Lots of foxes in these tales, including mine, but you can never have too many foxes, right?

Most of my knowledge of Japanese folklore comes courtesy of Pokémon and Studio Ghibli, so I enjoyed getting a bit deeper into the mythology and superstition. Standouts were the cute 'Fireworks and Foxes' and the macabre 'Skull Pillow Diary'.
