Books in Tokyo
Mon Sep 13 12:54:54 EDT 1999
Would greatly appreciate any suggestions on reviews,articles on the Ring
movie series(Ring 1,Ring 2) and Suzuki Koji,s novel on which it is
based.Also any stuff on Rasen and the Korean remake of Ring,The Ring
Virus.Must have missed the discussion on KineJapan on this movie,so I
apologize.The Ringmania produced some astonishing results at the Fantasia
festival in Montreal(am sure there were postings on that too during my
absence).Thanks for any pointers,in Japanese,French,German,English and
other languages. LM At 17:31 99-09-10 +0900, you wrote:
