According to the newly redesigned G-FAN website, Dr. William Tsutsui has been added to the guest list of G-FEST XVII.
Dr. Tsutsui is the author of "Godzilla On My Mind" and co-editor of "In Godzilla's Footsteps," among other scholarly works.
(Readers with long memories may remember Tsutsui's description of G-FEST in "Godzilla On My Mind," which included a needlessly disparaging remark directed at Gamera actor Carl Craig. Unfortunately, that turned off some fans who might otherwise have enjoyed the book, which is a fun-yet-philosophical read.) At any rate, kudos to the G-FEST team for attracting such a thought-provoking guest!
