Just picked up the latest Mas Arai mystery published in Japanese from Kinokuniya Bookstore in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo. This is the cover for SNAKESKIN SHAMISEN, which won an Edgar in the category of best paperback original last year. Naysayers say awards don't mean much, but it was entirely because of the Edgar that I finally got deals in Japan and South Korea. So Mas thanks you, Mr. Poe.
