There, he has been a crucial contributor working on such titles as: Tales of Terror: Haunted Apartment and Tales of Terror from Tokyo and All Over Japan which are known in Japan as Shin Mimibukuro. In addition, he has written the books: Tsukumo Kwaidan, Utsushiyo-kaidan, and Kinkiro. Nowadays, he continues to write ghost stories, emcees at monster conventions, and shares his knowledge and experiences at events worldwide.

Interesting. I've never heard of him. I suppose I could bring my Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki and have him sign one of the relevant pages, but that's probably not going to happen, so I'm more interested in maybe seeing some panels involving him talking about his time at Ghibli and working with Miyazaki.

I absolutely LOVE Laputa, Totoro, & Kiki's Delivery Service. :D :D

I never knew he does stuff in the horror genre as well. I'd love to read his books and see the horror films. *gives thumbs up* It'd be great to meet him. :) :)
