Sazaeoni. Seemingly thousands of oddball goblins, demons, spirits and monsters populate Japan's traditional spook-story lore, known collectively as "youkai" and ranging from such ancient figures as the Tanuki to more modern urban legend like the Slit-mouthed Woman.
Some of these creatures were once firmly believed to exist, while others made their debut in works of art, poetry or riddles, taking on life of their own as cultural icons that persist to this day. Perhaps one of the greatest influences on modern Youkai awareness was the artist Toriyama Sekien, who illustrated over 200 creatures - both traditional and of his own design - in a series of four books published in the late 1700's. Among them, an outlandish-looking monster he called the Sazaeoni. A "Sazae" is a distinct variety of sea shell belonging to a type of snail, also known as a "turban shell" and even eaten as a delicacy, though this is hardly surprising since we're talking about Japan and an animal that comes out of the sea.

From the Dungeon to the Dictionary I recently received an e-mail from a correspondent who noted that my list of forms of government lacked the word magocracy .
I was slightly bewildered that it was not there, for two reasons. I'd thoroughly searched the online Oxford English Dictionary and other sources for all "-cracy" and "-archy" words, so in theory, there shouldn't be any omissions. This revelation left me, if not shaken to my lexicographic foundations, then at least perplexed that I had possessed in my vocabulary for many, many years a word that simply did not exist. The answer is that for over twenty years, I have been a participant in role-playing games (RPGs), most notably Dungeons and Dragons (usually abbreviated to D&D), an extremely popular game with millions of players worldwide (mostly in their teens and twenties), and also one with its own curious jargon.
