The Fox Woman by Merritt 1949
THE FOX WOMAN. By A. MERRITT, AVON, NEW YORK, 1949.
Adventure - Science Fiction - Fantasy
Merritt is something of a cautionary tale for authors today. He was the bestselling American fantasy writer for a generation. ... It contains nine fantasy tales that reveal a surprising diversity, including lost-world adventure, science fiction, and the title story, “The Fox Woman,” a tale of revenge in 20th century China.
The lead characters of "The Fox Woman" are an ambitious human named Kaya no Yoshifuji and a fox woman named Kitsune. The story follows Johnson's Theodore Sturgeon Award-winning story "Fox Magic", and precedes her novel Fudoki in the "Love/War/Death" trilogy.
