Selected works adapted from 'Strange Tales From a Chinese Studio', written by Pu Songling somewhere around 1679, and first translated into English in 1880 by Herbert Giles.

There were some 500 stories originally published; in this presentation we bring you selected stories featuring genies, necromancers, shape-shifting animals, a rescuscitated corpse and at least one troublesome severed head.
