I received two copies of Nemuki magazine in the mail from a second-hand bookstore in Tokyo.

It arrived in less than two weeks, just at the beginning of my own Hell Week. Slightly miraculous that it arrived at all, because they placed my address where we put our sender's address and their own where we put the recipient's. Some nice person in some office in Narita pasted a printed label over the latter:
This item is destined for your country.
The sender's and addressee's adresses are in opposite position. It would be much appreciated if you could try to deliver it to the addressee.
Thank you.
I don't know if this is a preprinted label indicating a common source of confusion- which doesn't sort with my memory of how packages work there- or if indeed some kind postal person went to extreme trouble to correct a careless error. Whatever, I am immensely grateful to them.

Thus I have read one of the 100 Demons stories (two and a half times, because this is Ima Ichiko) and am content.

Equally, for those wondering about JET's retake on Sherlock Holmes, see here. No longer a genki tail-wagging werewolf, you observe.
