Once upon a time, when I saw ‘The Lord of the Rings’, a Hollywood film based on Tolkien’s classic, and its huge success, it occurred to me that Bakin’s Edo period samurai epic fantasy ‘Nansou Satomi Hakken-den‘ would make a film as exciting, engaging and entertaining, would appeal to a similar, expansive audience East and West.
Though I wasn’t too sure if it was out of my depth, I started writing my first drafts of Episode I, in which an observant reader may have spotted traces of experiments in writing style. During this period however, my life was being thrown topsy-turvy, and the project had to wait until a stable environment allows me to sustain my focus. Which brings me now.
Meanwhile, it’s been quite an adventure for me, and I hope more exciting stories will unfold, not just for me but for you, the reader, as more and more of the Legend of the Eight Samurai Hounds is revealed, for the first time, to the world outside Japan. Your support in the form of reading, liking, commenting, following this website (tab on the right), the official FB page, Tweets, and Pinterest board would be sincerely appreciated, more than I can express in this limited space, so thank you.
