Endless Summer Waterfront Festival

OK, just to remind you guys because its next week. Phair will be hawking our books at the Endless Summer Waterfront Festival on Saturday, September 21th (rain date 22th). Its at Nantasket Avenue in Hull, MA from Noon to 5pm. All paperbacks are going for $10 each, lobster roll not included.

*** 3 Nov 2014 *** I’m going thru my posts and adding annotations because they were from so long back. Phair had a good time at the festival. Sold a bootful of books and returned the next year. Unfortuately the experience was totally negative this time round. So we decided that we will no longer be supporting the event.

The ghouls who played on the Japanese mind

“Japanese Ghosts and Eerie Creatures” at the Osaka Museum of History is mostly play, with little horror. This is because so much of the genre’s visual and thematic core was part of the spectacle of the stage in 17th-century kabuki theater, and among the wide variety of other prints and paintings you’ll find caricature, parody and comic invention. The truly macabre is only a side show, as in the splattered bloody gore of “A Ghost Holding a Woman’s Head” by Keisai Eisen (1790-1848). Playful fiction is never far from spilling over into reality, however, as in the anatomical sketches that were used as visual evidence of “monsters” that terrorized Motogi village (in present-day Fukuoka) between 1680-84.
