Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Yurei Attack! is a nightmare-inducing one-stop guide to Japan's traditional ghosts and spirits. Surviving encounters with angry ghosts and sexy specters. Haunted places. Dangerous games and how to play them. And more importantly, a guided tour of what awaits in the world of the dead.



Yurei is the Japanese word for "ghost." It's as simple as that. They are the souls of dead people, unable--or unwilling--to shuffle off this mortal coil. Yurei are many things, but "friendly" isn't the first word that comes to mind. Not every yurei is dangerous, but they are all driven by emotions so uncontrollably powerful that they have taken on a life of their own: rage, sadness, devotion, a desire for revenge, or even the firm belief that they are still alive.



This book, the third in the authors' bestselling Attack! series, after Yokai Attack! and Ninja Attack! gives detailed information on 39 of the creepiest yurei stalking Japan, along with detailed histories and defensive tactics should you have the misfortune to encounter one.



Japanese ghosts include:







Oiwa, The Horror of Yotsuya

Otsuyu, The Tale of the Peony Lantern

The Lady Rokujo, The Tale of Genji

Isora, Tales of Moonlight and Rain

Orui, The Depths of Kasane





Together with Yokai Attack! and Ninja Attack!, Yurei Attack! is the last guidebook to Japan you'll ever need.
