Lĩnh Nam chích quái (Hán tự: 嶺南摭怪 lit. "Selection of Strange Tales in Lĩnh Nam") is a 14th-century Vietnamese semi-ficional work written in Han scripts by Trần Thế Pháp.[1][2] The title indicates strange tales "plucked from the dust" of the Lingnan region of South China and North Vietnam.[3]

Later editors who worked on the collection include Vũ Quỳnh (1452-1516) and Kiều Phú (1447-?).
