Read full description of the books Apparitions: Ghosts of Old Edo:Richly detailed stories of the supernatural set in Japan’s Bunka era (1804 to 1818 with occasional flashbacks to the previous century). All the stories share a common theme: working conditions and employment practices of the time that are related to domestic servitude or apprenticeships lead to encounters with ghosts and demons.
Unfortunately, the first 2-3 stories are probably the least interesting, but I liked the others very much. Here’s how I would order them all, best to worst: "The ‘Oni’ of the Adachi House," "The Oni in the Autumn Rain," "A Woman’s Head," "Ash Kagura," "The Futon Storeroom," "The Mussel Mound,” “The Plum Rains Fall,” “A Drowsing Dream of Shinjū,” and “Cage of Shadows."
