The Story of Kao Yu
The Story of Kao Yu: A Tor.com Original | Peter S. Beagle
1 post | 5 read | 3 to read
"The Story of Kao Yu is a new fantasy short story by the legendary Peter S. Beagle which tells of an aging judge traveling through rural China and of a criminal he encounters. Of the story, Beagle says it comes out of a lifelong fascination with Asian legendry Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Indonesian all drawn from cultures where storytelling, in one form of another, remains a living art. As a young writer I loved everything from Robert van Gulik's Judge Dee mysteries to Lafcadio Hearn's translations of Japanese fairytales and many lesser-known fantasies. Like my story The Tale of Junko and Sayuri, The Story of Kao Yu is a respectful imitation of an ancient style, and never pretends to be anything else. But I wrote it with great care and love, and I'm still proud of it. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

What an interesting short story embedded in real Chinese mythology.
