    Anyone who is familiar with Japanese literature knows the name Edogawa Rampo. He is the pioneer of the Japanese style of suspense short stories. However, in order to fully appreciate the real meaning hidden behind the story line, one needs to have certain amount of understand particular segments of Nippon aestheticism. I wouldn't simply call him the Japanesr Edgar Allen Poe. Edogawa sensei's way of arousing fear is less direct yet more in depth.

    If possible, I'd go for the other Rampo short story release "Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination", as every story worth reading in this is also included there, with even more added on top. With that said, wow. The Human Chair is obviously worth the price of admission alone, and is one of the best short stories I have ever read. The Caterpillar is both horrifying and heartbreaking, and The Hell of Mirrors remains inventive and entertaining even on rereading.

Rampo was a huge talent, and I don't think the Edgar Allan Poe comparison is unjust to either party. I also don't consider a single tale included bad, the star rating is merely a reflection of the repetition and lessening of overall content going between the two collections, plus it's got to be said that throwing in a Lafcadio Hearn piece apropos of nothing is a bit of an odd choice.

    I didn't read the Red Stockade because I wasn't interested. The STANDOUT story from this is The Human Chair. So disturbing, eerie, and horrific. I'll never look at chairs the same way again. Overall, the stories definitely have a weird vibe and I recommend reading them. I didn't read the Red Stockade because I wasn't interested. The STANDOUT story from this is The Human Chair.
