Synopsis

Ideals of the Samurai Writing of Japanese Warriors by William Scott Wilson

Translated and introduced by accomplished Japanese language and literature scholar William Scott Wilson, this anthology compiles the writings of 12 samurai warriors and paints a cultural picture of feudal Japan between the 13th and 17th centuries. Each warrior's text is preceded by a brief summary of his life and career. What emerges from this collection is a picture of the samurai class that not only acknowledges a man's behavior on the battlefield but also surprises with its depth and humanity.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
