    HE gave you a lot of grief, Shaun, over not reading the book!

    Very interesting show! One thought. Near end of the show there were a lot of recommendations – mainly Japanese names/authors & publications, all of which sounded great. But it was quite hard for to follow or get the names/publications down accurately. Is there any you could provide a transcript (or something) of the last part of the show? Or will I find all I need to know on the Haikasoru website?

      Hi Danny,
      You should be able to find all of the stuff Nick mentioned at the Haikasoru website. All the Japanese names were from works translated into English by the imprint Nick edits.

      Thanks for listening!
