Author's Note

Author's Note
Maybe you know, but Rohan Kishibe, the protagonist of this volume, is a character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Series, in particular the fourth part, Diamond is Unbreakable. He is a mangaka and a Stand user able to transform someone into a book, thus accessing this person's life and thoughts, and also influentiate them by writing among the lines... This collection gathers several stories about the adventures he had during his research. The first chapter was written in 1997. I'm very happy to see them together here.

These five horrifying stories bring us to Italy as well as in the middle of the Japanese mountains and the beach. I hope, with all my heart, that you'll enjoy reading them.
