I have just received word that "Aikido: My Spiritual Journey"
will at long last be published by Kodansha America
! The release date is scheduled for November 2012, and the new ISBN# will be 9781568364117. I'm sure many of you are looking forward to this as much as I. (How does it feel to be as sick as I am?)
It feels just dandy, thank you. ;-)
Glad to hear it, and I'll keep my eyes open for it later this year.
With eBooks, iBooks, Kindle, on-demand publishing, etc., there's no reason for great books to go away forever. The only reason they used to was that the demand was so small it wasn't worth the cost to print, store, ship, and stock them. I hope many "hard to find" books will make their way into this new market, where we can all have (relatively) inexpensive and easy access to them.
