#783 Autumn is for reading.(読書の秋)~Western mysterious stories~
There is an old saying in Japan that says, “Autumn is for reading”.
Lately I bought several books to read. Let me talk about one of them.
My favorite author Nakano Kyoko released her new book「中野京子の西洋奇譚」(Western mysterious stories). There are 21 stories, including my favorite Dracula, in the book. （I’ve attended “Dracula seminar” before.）
It’s not only about stories. This book tells the background history, mystery, and funny things.
I didn’t know that the ghost of President Abraham Lincoln haunts the White House, but it seems the myth is quite famous.
Other story such as “Do dogs commit suicide?”
The most interesting story was the Dyatlov Pass incident in Russia in 1959. 9 Russian hikers died in the mountain. The cause of death is still unsolved. For me, Russia itself is a mysterious country.
There are many books and movies about the stories in the book. I’ll check and follow some of the stories.
Halloween is coming isn’t it? Why don’t you read some mysterious stories?
