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.

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.

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