The Goblin Spider, by Lafcadio Hearn:

The Goblin Spider, by Lafcadio Hearn:

~ (cincylibrary:)

As night advanced he crouched down under the altar, which supported a dusty image of Buddha. He saw nothing strange and heard no sound till after midnight. Then there came a goblin, having but half a body and one-eye, and said: “Hitokusai!” (There is the smell of a man). But the samurai did not move. The goblin went away.

And more from Lafcadio Hearn – In Ghostly Japan:
