Overview

In an ancient Japan where the incursions of gods, ghosts, and demons into the living world is an everyday event, an impoverished nobleman named Yamada no Goji makes his living as a demon hunter for hire. With the occasional assistance of the reprobate exorcist Kenji, whatever the difficulty—ogres, demons, fox-spirits—for a price Yamada will do what needs to be done, even and especially if the solution to the problem isn’t as simple as the edge of a sword. Yet, no matter how many monsters he has to face, or how powerful and terrible they may be, the demons Yamada fears the most are his own.

I really enjoyed reading these interconnected short stories. They follow the life of a minor court noble who solved mysteries involving Yokai, Kami and other beings of Japanese lore. I enjoyed the characters, almost all of them are well fleshed out and rounded. I'm looking forward to more stories and perhaps a novel or three.

Fantastic book set during the Heian era of Japan, when the world was shared with ghosts, demons, and other monsters.  Impoverished nobleman Yamada no Goji is a bit of a demon hunter, a drunk, and a man with surprising insights into life.  This compilation of short stories is a wonderful introduction to this world.  Hope the planned sequel comes out soon.

A great read. Good introduction to Japanese folklore. Hope the planned sequel is offered as a Nook book.
