  • Kyokutei Bakin (?? ??, 4 July 1767 – 1 December 1848) was a late Japanese Edo period gesaku author best known for works such as Nanso Satomi Hakkenden (The Chronicles of the Eight Dog Heroes of the Satomi Clan of Nansô) and Chinsetsu Yumiharizuki (Strange Tales of the Crescent Moon).
  • Both are outstanding examples of nineteenth-century yomihon, or "books for reading" (as opposed to picture books and books for recitation).
