Gale. Korean Folk Tales

Today's free book is Korean Folk Tales: Imps, Ghosts and Fairies by Im Bang and Yi Ryuk, and translated by James S. Gale. For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

Here is what the preface says about the original authors: Im Bang was born in 1640, the son of a provincial governor. He was very bright as a boy and from earliest years fond of study, becoming a great scholar. Yi Ryuk lived in the reign of King Se-jo, matriculated in 1459, and graduated first in his class in 1564. He was a man of many offices and many distinctions in the way of literary excellence.
