I am the author of the short story collection,
Back of the Book Blurb:
“In Japan, the line that divides myth from reality is not merely blurred, it is nonexistent. Superstitions, legends, and folk myths are passed down through generations and pervade daily living.
The Japanese examine life and living with the keenest eyes and the most vivid of imaginations. Thersa Matsuura has captured that essence in this darkly insightful collection illuminating the place where reality falters and slips into the strange and fantastical.”
※Charles de Lint’s review in Fantasy and Science Fiction:
“It’s all fascinating material—very fresh to Western ears in both subject material and characterization—and comes to us wrapped in some of the most gorgeous prose I’ve read in a while. The stories are eerie, at times disturbing, occasionally sweet natured, but always compelling.
A Robe of Feathers is a truly unique collection that suits no easy categorization except that of excellence.”
