The Ginza Ghost and Oops

The Ginza Ghost is a collection of 12 short stories by the first major figure in the original honkaku movement in the 1940s, Keikichi Osaka. (the later renaissance in 1980s is technically called shin-honkaku = new-orthodox). All but 2 of the stories are impossible mysteries with rational solutions. Osaka’s work is characterised by a hauntingly eerie atmosphere and masterful illusions. He is currently enjoying a renaissance in his own country.  (Available late May or early June).

The Oops refers to the file labelled 2017_4_25 DID EQMM (Review of Death in the Dark) mistakenly containing a review for Paul Halter’s The Vampire Tree, which has now been corrected.
