Tales of the Hermit, Vol. III: The Monk and the Samurai — The Sword Maiden — The Katana that Caused It All

THE MONK AND THE SAMURAI — THE SWORD MAIDEN — THE KATANA THAT CAUSED IT ALL
by Oscar Ratti and Adele Westbrook

Sheltered on the Summit by a mysterious group of individuals known only as the "Residents," Père Dominic had begun a slow and difficult recovery from the state of physical and mental exhaustion that had marked his arrival in this wild and remote area. Part of the therapeutic regime the Residents had devised for him consisted of distracting his mind by exposure to the wealth of scrolls.

Three additional scrolls were recommended to Père Dominic by the hermit, Yu-Xia. When questioned about them, Hori, the Librarian, offered a few words concerning their contents as he handed the elaborately tied package to Père Dominic: "These three tales, The Monk and the Samurai, The Sword Maiden, and The Katana That Caused It All, are linked together by a single narrative, and are quite different in tone from those you have read previously. They are meant not only to surprise and amuse, but also to provide another perspective on the human condition which we all share-for better and worse!" Père Dominic's journey takes a new turn . . .
