Among those Cincy pieces from Lafcadio Hearn's journalism is one about a
gruesome murder. It is an absolute classic. Could I prevail upon you -- if
you have the time -- to share with us rara-avians the passage about the
corpse in the furnace? Just a paragraph or two? Hearn wrote it a century and
a quarter ago, but his style & his powers of observation were so far ahead
of the rest! I have the book somewhere, but it's inundated under years &
years of other books, papers, files, and other stuff.
Lafcadio Hearn also wrote "Fantastics" and the Japanese ghost stories
Oh, I cannot recommend all of his works too highly. He's wonderful! And
the life he led, too.
