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.
