Spitting on Ghosts

Spitting on Ghosts: Fables and Fairy Tales from Early China by Tsai Chih Chung

A graphic novel, heavier on anecdotes of mysterious and magical beings than full blown tales.  (The title comes from the secret a ghost reveals of its weakness.)  A good number of animal shape-shifters, including a tale of a bird-maiden, and a couple of cautionary tales about romancing a strange woman you just met.  Ghosts -- more than the title tale.
