Rampo’s Fictional Works (List ver.) [in English]

It is a refined, translated version of the comprehensive list of Rampo’s fictional works from the original raw data table in Japanese.

There is also a timeline version of this list.

I also attempted to create one example of data visualization!

Rampo's Fictional Works [in English]

This table contains a comprehensive list of Rampo's fictional works, as well as where you can find their English translations.
There are three groups to distinguish different series: fiction; fiction (Akechi Kogorō series); fiction (Boy Detective Club series).
Title of works have two components: the Romanization of original title, and the English translation of the title (if no existing translation available, the translation is my attempt).
The medium where it was published/serialized is indicated in the "Magazine" section. With few exceptions (of [newspaper] and [book]), most are published in magazines.
