Fantastic Kaiju Books In Production

G-FAN's Armand Vaquer is reporting on his blog that two very exciting books are currently in production.

The first is The G-FAN Travel Guide to Kaiju Japan, which looks to be a joint venture between Armand and J.D. Lees. As the title suggests, it will be an entertaining and information-packed primer for those who wish to see the landmarks featured in tokusatsu films. Hopefully Mr. Vaquer will recap his visit to the Bandai Museum, as well.

The second is the winsomely titled Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men: the Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda by Peter H. Brothers. To readers of G-FAN, Mr. Brothers needs no introduction. For the rest of you, his writing has set the standard for serious anlaysis and appreciation of Japanese fantasy cinema. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this will be the first biography/career survey of Ishiro Honda to appear in the English language.

This is great news for G-readers. For more information go to:
