    Hi All,

    Yes I was there when he came two years ago. This time he presented his Marco Polo series, which I remember he presented back then as well. I can't recognize all of them, but there are a few which I saw last year which appeared this year as well. The book is apparently out/will be out soon.

    So, must start searching from Kinokuniya already. And also must check-out the price from amazon.com. If either of us saw this book, please inform(in this site) each other, OK?

    What was the turn out at his talk?

    Actually wanted to go but due to last minute distraction had to miss it. I think it's a privilege for us in Singapore to have so many distinctive personalities visiting us so often. We should make it a point not miss them.

    Yamashita's works on Marco Polo was actually published in NG in Jan 2001 issue.

    But I don't think we can see the rest of his work on Marco Polo NG issues(three books) in 2001. So this new book is a must buy for me.

    Turn out was good though it's not full house. The 2 founders of Objectifs Dawn and Emmeline are also there. Saw Ed9119 there as well.

    Sure! Right after the talk, Red Dawn and I went over to Borders to check, no sign of it there.
