Review from Bankai: Baffling Japanese Internet Mysteries
Tara Devlin is a talented person who brings Japan to us in a fascinating way with good translations. She not only tells what happened, but does so I’m a fascinating way that brings it all to life. I look forward to her next book.
Review from Kaihan: Bizarre Crimes That Shook Japan
A fear unlike any you've ever known...
Tara A. Devlin studied Japanese at the University of Queensland before moving to Japan in 2005. She lived in Matsue, the birthplace of Japanese ghost stories, for 10 years, where her love for Japanese horror really grew. And with Izumo, the birthplace of Japanese mythology, just a stone’s throw away, she was never too far from the mysterious. Now she translates and writes horror, mostly focused around Japan.
