Chinese Myths and FantasiesBook - 1992
This collection of Chinese stories begins with the great legends of how Earth and Heaven came into being, and of how the archer Yi rid the Emperor Yao of the menace of the ten suns. There are folk-tales here, too: about ghosts and rain-makers, poor students and magicians, and the man who was nearly made into fishpaste. Throughout all of these stories Cyril Birch has kept the subtle flavor of the originals and brings to life all of the magic and mystery of China.
