My interest in Rampo began with a breadcrumb trail running behind my own curiosity much alike the renown mystery fiction writer s protagonists On my way out the door after a visit to a friend s house a bright red spine stood out of an otherwise nondescript shelf A novel by Keigo Higashino Although the name of the novel itself has haemorrhaged out of my memory I eventually pulled up Higashino s works online and just as I was about to select a book my eyes fixed upon a single achievement listed among many He won the Edogawa Rampo Prize which is awarded annually to the unpublished finest mystery work in 1985 for the novel H kago After School at age 27 Unpublished finest mystery work Who the hell was this Edogawa RampoAnd so it beganHirai Taro who published under the pseudonym of Edogawa Rampo was himself a man of shifting complexity and seemed to unlike some of the forlorn contemporaries of his age think Ozamu Dazai co enjoy this part of his personality His life and times are exhibited well through the twin efforts of Jacobowitz s exhaustive introduction and analysis as well as Rampo s lucid recounts of his childhood and adolescent obsessions fears and exploitsThe Reader includes a well selected list of eight short fiction pieces and ten essays the result is a comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable portrait of the author It also helps that Rampo is extremely clear and proud of his literary influences just say the name Edogawa Rampo thrice in uick succession and somewhere in Balti Edgar Allen Poe s gravestone shudders in acknowledgement Poe s work rears it s head very often while reading Rampo particularly in his uncanny exploration of instinctual fears everything from chilling homicides to symmetry lenses and optical instrumentsMy only disappointment with this book is the apparent exclusion of two of Rampo s most important works namely The Two Sen Copper Coin which was his debut story and The Human Chair a fantastic example from the ero guro nansensu genre that was adapted nearly a century later by horror mangaka extraordinaire Junji ItoJacobowitz s translation is particularly striking and I find myself extraordinarily thankful for his existence out of fifteen standalone mystery works only three have been translated into EnglishThis is immensely disappointing a sentiment I m sure you ll share once you dive into Rampo s extraordinary genre defining works

I feel like i have been waiting for this book for all of my life it has been a slow amount of time to get the Japanese writer Edogawa Rampo translated into English One of his collections of short stories have been in print for so many years yet waiting for another title seemed endless Now we have at least three other books by Rampo and I bought them all this year The Edogawa Rampo Reader is a much needed over all look of his career The first half of this book is short stories and the second half are essays mostly regarding the nature of the detective story i only found one essay the most interesting and that s The Horror Of Films dealing with the nature and history of cinema It s a great piece on what was then a new medium He wrote it in 1926 and for a short essay it covers a lot of ground Basically all to do with being the viewer The short stories are all in the creepy mode that I love about Rampo s work It includes the story about a man who spends a lot of time in the attic where he spies on people down below and also commits a murder The long introduction by Seth Jacobowitz is pretty perfect in capturing what is so essential about Rampo his times and the work itself A remarkable writer
