Pick up your next J-horror read with my list at Unbound Worlds

My first piece for Unbound Worlds is an installment in their So You Want to Read series:

Ghost stories have been part of Japanese literature since the Heian period, from 794 to 1185, and modern Japanese horror is more accessible for English-language readers than ever before. Focusing on psychological horror and frequently incorporating folk religion elements including Shinto-style exorcisms, supernatural phenomena, and yokai, J-Horror titles are hair-raising stories that stick with the reader long after the book has been closed.

You can read the full article here to find your Halloween read. (But don’t say I didn’t warn you: some of these titles are incredibly terrifying.)
