Working with Sawako on Factorial now (see above). Before any credit for content comes close to being attributed to me, I do the backoffice work, so to speak - web site, sales, etc. Not exactly creative work, but Sawako's started a project that I'm completely behind and will do what I can to help. And anyway, who cooler to work with?? Factorial is doing extraordinary things for Japanese poetry. Please contact me for a copy!
