My Japanese horror story ‘Mira’ will shortly be published in Dark Tales vol XV.  This story features a Yokohama schoolboy who stumbles upon a haiku relating to an ancient mirror ritual, which he attempts to re-enact…with dire consequences.  Set in modern and feudal Japan, it is inspired by the stories of Akutagawa and also the films of Kurosawa, as well as the wonderful Kwaidan film.  I also visited a couple of times, and have fond memories of spending time in Yokohama and Kamakura, which inspired this story – and others.  The sinister monk Obuko returns in other tales….

Dark Tales is a quality publication well worth buying.
