The kitsune is the Japanese word for fox.  As with a lot of other creatures in Japanese folklore, the fox has a magical dimension.

Intelligent and magical, the kitsune can change to human form, and its powers grow with age.  It can be a loyal guardian or friend, even a wife or lover.  Foxes are particularly known for impersonating beautiful women, and a common belief in medieval Japan was that any unaccompanied woman met after dark could be a fox.

Thus Kitsune Press UK is the natural home for tales of mystery and the supernatural.
