    My Glowing Daughter Xanax

    This week's story, "The Bamboo Cutter and the Moon Child," was the inspiration for the movie Princess Kaguya. What we ended up with is not exactly that movie, which is great.

    Downstairs Magic In Clam Water Town

    Come for the weird asbestos water, stay for the hero who fights off witches with a spoon: we're reading "Tatterhood" this week. It's a story with a whole bunch of interesting stuff waiting at the periphery.

    A Dose of Vitamin Toad

    We're back in Grimmland this week with "The Crows." It's a story with a much better story going on in the margins about one woman's total control over a town, and a possible nemesis. How much of that did we add? Folklore changes, it's an oral tradition. Which means it's all canon.
