Ranpo Edogawa’s short stories have changed throughout the years – he started from detective fiction in style of Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie, only to move on to more creepy tales similar to those of Edgar Allan Poe (he borrowed his pen name from Poe – Edogawa Ranpo pronounced quickly sounds almost as Edgar Allan Poe). In his later years, Ranpo preffered to shock and freak out rather than solve mysteries. Together with translator Dariusz Latoś, we have chosen stories that perfectly present different faces to Edogawa.
Publishing house, bookstore and an online magazine in one
Passion towards East Asian culture, especially literature
Our bookstore on Chmielna 12 street is a meeting place for everyone who loves Asia
Tajfuny is a curated bookstore. It means that we only choose to stock books that have fascinated and enchanted us.
In our online bookstore you will surely find great titles from across Asia. Every book is recommended by someone from our team – boring book descriptions copy&pasted from publishers’ websites is not our thing. We want to share our impressions and favourite quotes, because we want to make the online shopping experience as close to what you get when you visit our brick and mortar store in Warsaw.
