In Jack London’s short story Moon Face, our narrator has a deep-seated dislike for his neighbor, Jack Claverhouse, a man with a face like a moon and a constant cheerful demeanor. His hatred grows until he takes it upon himself to fix the problem of the moon-faced man.
The short story “Sand Walls, Paper Doors” is from my first collection of short stories called, “A Robe of Feathers and Other Stories”. Set in Japan, it’s a somewhat autobiographical tale about a exchange student trying to find her way in the world. Also, there are quite a few youkai, these curious Japanese creatures.
