It's worth noting that this is NOT THE UPDATED version of this work, which has sense been released and includes three newer stories
The Last of Hanak'o (Hanak'o nun opta, 1992), Ch'oe Yun
Conviction (Hwakshin, 2003), Ch'oe Such'ol
From Powder to Powder (Hwajang, 2004), Kim Hun

For whatever reason, Google searches tend to pick up the outdated version of this collection.
