As you know, I have a book coming out in December via Rowman & Littlefield about the films of Akira Kurosawa.

Akira Kurosawa: A Viewer's Guide

The first review is in, and it's a positive one. Publisher's Weekly says, "Focusing on Kurosawa’s themes rather than his techniques, San Juan readily succeeds in his goal of creating an accessible appreciation of Kurosawa’s work."

Their full review goes online next week, I think. I believe it will be located here.

Now I just have to get off my ass and add it to my website. I'm shamefully late in doing that.

It's nice to get some good word early.

The real test is when real Kurosawa aficionados get to it.

Whoa, whoa whoa.

Don't project your hopes on me, motherfucker. I'll cancel my goddamn pre-order right now. Don't think I won't.

This thing is officially out tomorrow. I hope it does fairly well, despite being a niche topic.

I've already started on another, which I'm under contract for. Can't post about it publicly yet, but some of you know what it is.

After that, or maybe one more, I think I'm going to retreat from doing books like these. I'll be at a point where in theory I could carve out a little niche and just keep doing them, but I was to write something ELSE and don't want to just keep doing the same sort of thing.
