Youyang zazu is an important Tang dynasty miscellany by the erudite and well-traveled chronicler, Duan Chengshi (c. 800-863).

A Tang Miscellany: An Introduction to ‘Youyang zazu’ includes a biographical sketch of Duan, a textual history of the miscellany, a summary of the content of the collection, and a selection of 145 translations.
