Here there are two prime influences, both from U.S. TV of the '70s. First is "McMillan and Wife" and second -- as Bergen freely points out in his afterword -- is "Kolchak: The Night Stalker". I was (and am) a "Night Stalker" fanatic, so I know what Bergen was aiming for here: a mixture of supernatural horror and comedy, with monsters from various cultures.
The sensibility is right, but I think the stories needed more development. They're vignettes. My two favorites (the "Japanese" ghost and especially the Beer Monster) could have been brilliant TV episodes or novellas if they had been fleshed out. But after the Beer Monster got off to a very promising start, it ended all too quickly.
I wish Bergen had made this a series and rolled out full stories over time instead of putting all these pieces in one small bag. It would have been more in keeping with the inspiration.
