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.

Regards
CK

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. :(
