The Early Cases of Akechi Kogoro by Edogawa Rampo - Part Three

Play

We discuss The Dwarf by Edogawa Rampo. Closing out the collection, this grim tale takes us through murder, love, and the grotesque in what would become known as Rampo's signature tone. Surrounded by villains and with an unwitting housemaid as his assistant, can Akechi Kogoro get to the bottom of this case in time? With final points on the line the tension is high and Flex may finally be out of his depth. We're also joined by Paul Daley, Walkley-Award-winning journalist, to talk about the historical barriers that remain in place between Australian and Japanese cultures decades after World War 2, as well as how to find holes in your own understanding of other cultures.

We discuss The Black Hand Gang, and The Ghost by Edogawa Rampo, as part of the collection The Early Cases of Akechi Kogoro, translated by William Varteresian. As Rampo continues to walk the line between Conan Doyle and Van Dine, our two new cases show an interesting point in his career, as we look at his least favourite story "The Ghost", and why he saw it as a failure. Flex is also tasked to solve "The Black Hand Gang", with a metagame puzzle from Herds to boot. We're joined by Matt Sainsbury from Digitally Downloaded to talk about Rampo's influence and why he's underappreciated in the west.

We discuss The Case of the Murder on D. Hill by Edogawa Rampo, as part of the collection The Early Cases of Akechi Kogoro, translated by William Varteresian. Bringing the traditions of Western Murder Mystery to Japan, Rampo sets a tone that many describe as being akin to his namesake, Edgar Allan Poe, or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but we reckon he's actually a secret Van Dine subscriber. As Akechi Kogoro makes his way through his first case with his faceless narrator, will Rampo break one of the most important rules in all detective fiction? We can only dream.

#14 The Human Chair by Edogawa Rampo

Play
Read more

Edogawa Rampo’s short story, ‘The Human Chair’,was originally published in Japanese in 1925.  The story is taken from the collection, Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination, translated by James B. Harris, and published by Tuttle Publishing.  ‘The Human Chair’ is a tale of the grotesque in which a master carpenter entombs himself inside a chair in order to gain the intimacy that society has denied him.  The longer he spends inside the chair, pressed close to the bodies of strangers, the harder it becomes to return to his ordinary life.  As well as being a superb example of the uncanny tale, ‘The Human Chair’ is a rich palimpsest that reveals layer upon layer of sexual, social and national anxietie: s. 

Over the course of the episode, we discuss Edgar Allan Poe’s influence in Japan, the combination of the erotic and the grotesque, and consider how this tale straddles the border between the horrific and the horrible.
