Asian Monsters (Fox Spirit Books of Monsters) (Volume 3) - CY Yan, Benjamin Chee, Eliza Chan, Sunil Patel, Margret Helgadottir,  Fran Terminiello, Vajra Chandrasekera, Eeleen Lee, Eve Shi, Xia Jia, Usman T. Malik, Isabel Yap, Yukimi Ogawa, Aliette de Bodard, Ken Liu

A fantastic first step into Asian mythology and folklore (I say as someone with no clue about the stories of the various cultures under the "Asian" umbrella). All the stories have a certain surreal, dream-like quality in common and one or two require time to digest and absorb before moving on to the next one but I enjoyed every single one.
