...catching up on old posts this weekend...
I MET KOJI SUZUKI, author of the Ring series & Dark Water!
The weekend before last, My gf & I were shopping at Kinokuniya in San Francisco for comics (picking up Cromartie 3, Scary Book 2 - will post on these soon) when an announcement came over the spearkers that KOJI SUZUKI was there for a signing!!
I had no idea about this, but happily got in line and got a copy of his short story collection, Dark Water, signed!
Turns out Suzuki was in town to attend the World Horror Convention that weekend, and Vertical, publisher of all things awesome Japanese literature and responsible for the publication of Tezuka's Buddha series, had him do a signing.
If you don't know his writing and need convincing, check out this preview of Dark Water over at Vertical's site!
