I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I dusted my e-reader off and charged it. I'm relieved to see it still works after months of neglect.
Anyway, this should be good for either the Supernatural or Terrifying Women squares. The main character is a translator who specializes in hieroglyphics and wallowing in bitterness. He ends up with a creepy mummified cat. So far it looks like the mummified kitty version of the monkey's paw story.
