After I joined one of the Manga groups here, I saw this book on the 'top 65 horror mangas'...I gave it a try...This is my very first horror manga..Wow !!! It just blew me off...I really liked the stories,very original.My favorites were the first 2 chapters in the book,Library of illusions,Songs in the dark & Splatter film...The best of them all is "Songs in the Dark" !!! The only story that was so so was 'In the valley of mirrors".Not gonna write anything more about the stories and spoil the fun...Horror lovers, do read this book !!!
