The ghosts in this book are figments of Hearn’s imagination; they are not actually present in Chinese folklore or myths. First written in 1887, this is Hearn’s second book, written before he moved to Japan. The 6 stories include “The Soul of the Great Bell”, :The Legend of Tchi-Niu”, “The Tradition of the Tea-Plant”, and three others.
