WELCOME TO

THE WORLD OF LIAOZHAI

 

This is a remarkable record of the strange and supernatural, made in the 17th century by a scholar named Pu Songling. This record contains almost 500 accounts of everything unusual you can imagine – from ghosts and demons to fox spirits and were-tigers, from magic and illusion to poltergeists and exorcisms. There are immortals and flower nymphs, mysterious monks and pregnant men, plagues and eartthquakes, phantom cities and unknown worlds. Read this classic work of Chinese literature in an English translation here and enter the world of Liaozhai.
