Japan Times Reviews "The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan"
The Japan Times Online now has a review of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan posted.
Here's an excerpt:
English-language literature on Godzilla and all the other
monsters that followed is rather scarce, probably due to film company Toho's
legal actions that in the past have successfully blocked the publication of a
number of books. Among the titles worth mentioning, there are Stuart Galbraith
IV's "Monsters Are Attacking Tokyo" (1998), Steve Ryfle's "Japan's Favorite
Mon-star" (1998), and Peter H. Brothers' "Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men: The
Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda" (2009). Now Godzilla lover and writer Armand
Vaquer has come up with a guidebook for all those fans who want to turn a trip
to Japan into a pilgrimage to the places that were cinematically trashed by the
Big G, Mothra, Gamera and their friends.
