Murakami/Itoi: Let's Meet in a Dream


You know Mother/Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi and the much, much, much, much-lauded novelist, Haruki Murakami, once composed a book of short-stories together? Yes? You'll also be aware of it never being available in English, right?

Not any more, as some fine chap by the name of Andrew Miller has been running a series of translations on his blog since last year, and incrementally justifying the internet's continued existence ever since.

I've only read snippets here and there, but it's pretty cool to behold two undisputed legends of their respective fields in the relative infancy of their careers, and the little snapshots and glimpses to their future successes too.
