I am reading this excellent collection of Chinese folk-tales from the 17th century called Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. It was compiled and written in the 17th century so it really has an interesting tone and, to be honest, it's pretty hilarious as well. Before that, I was reading up on Hindu myths and the like and afterwards I have to reread the excellent Ugetsu Monogatari, which is a collection of Japanese folk-tales and myths...

All of this is research for a new novel I'm thinking about writing at the moment.
