Edogawa Rampo was one of the most influential writers in early 20th century Japan as his works helped establish the detective and mystery genre in modern Japanese literature With a pseudonym that is basically inspired by the Japanese pronunciation of Edgar Allan Poe Rampo developed what is freuently referenced as the Japanese gothic mystery managing to introduce the Western elements of mystery fiction to the Japanese audience while adding an inherently Japanese flavourPublished in 2006 by Kurodahan Press and translated by Ian Hughes The Black Lizard and Beast in the Shadows features two of Rampo s novellas The Black Lizard and Beast in the Shadows as well as a very enlightening introduction by Mark Schreiber that helps even those readers who are unfamiliar become acuainted with this era of Japanese mystery fiction The Black Lizard is the longest of the two novellas 174 pages and it uses many familiar tropes of the genre The Black Lizard of the title is none other than our female criminal it is revealed in the very first chapter so this is hardly a spoiler a femme fatale who stirs a lot of trouble for our seemingly clueless male detective While the story starts off with the talk of abduction of a young heiress characters disguising themselves oh so successfully and fooling everyone around them as well as many other familiar plot devices and tropes it s not long before it takes a rather gruesome turn I will not go into details here but I m sure readers who are expecting an Agatha Christie type of story will be wildly surprised by the grim and macabre turn of eventsAs a novella The Black Lizard comprises 29 short chapters most are less than 10 pages while there are some pages interspersed with drawings of certain scenes and characters Rampo s writing style in this novella might seem a bit peculiar and outdated to most readers since he tends to address the reader uite often and provide explanations as to what has taken place in the story This reminded me a little of the mystery novels I used to read as a child Enid Blyton etc although Rampo s content is far from appropriate for childrenThe second novella Beast in the Shadows was my personal favourite out of the two Consisting of merely 12 chapters and 102 pages our protagonist turns into a detective as he tries to solve the mystery of a stalker that harasses his recently widowed love interest Rampo isn t afraid to delve deep into the psychology of his characters and bring even their darkest side into light and that is what makes Beast in the Shadows so engrossing in my opinionAs an avid fan of mysterydetectivecrime fiction I was delighted that I finally got the chance to read of Japan s leading writer of this genre It s always very fascinating to me to see how certain genres themes or tropes that are familiar to us in a certain way are employed and even subverted by other cultures Even if you end up not finding yourself mesmerised by Rampo s writing style I believe both The Black Lizard and Beast in the Shadows are very worth your time even if just to become acuainted with the origins if I may say of the Japanese mystery genreYou can also read my review over at The Literary Sisters Many many thanks to Kurodahan Press for providing me with a copy of this book Vagina relatively free and uninhibited popular press being a defining feature of the times In this context Rampo's dark vision and extravagant grotesuery found an avid A History of Irish Economic Thought rea.
