Book of translated samurai prose stories in the works

It'll probably be a while until this comes out (scheduled for late 2019), but it will probably be worth looking forward to, this publisher has previously published volumes of Japanese science fiction and horror stories (among other kinds of books, one of them a non-fiction book about the Vietnam war written by a Japanese journalist) that are worth reading:

This publisher is also working on a book of vampire stories from Japan as well (one of the stories can currently be read in the book Speculative Japan Vol. 3), I wonder if maybe it will include a vampire samurai or two :wink: :
