The three short novels in this volume are related not simply by their milieu of Chinese culture but also by how the supernatural world or our fears of it can dramatically shape events in our daily lives. "Individually, each of these novellas is a stunning read. Together, they're a treatise on the author's limitless imagination, unbridled passion for his subject matter, and unerring instincts."
