Shimoda, Todd

365 views of Mt. Fuji algorithms of the floating world. Illustrations by L. J. C. Shimoda

Stone Bridge Press, Berkeley. 1998, xiii, 356p., b&w sketch and linocut vignettes throughout, first edition 9x7.5 inch glossy decorated wraps. Fictionalized diary of a visit to the precincts of the mountain, with snippets of a back-story and Japanese history in side-bars; a sort of a novel, by a Japanese American computer scientist, third-generation Japanese American born in Colorado. He and wife Linda have lived in Japan. Futuristic cultural elements (robot service; possibly set in near-future) are embedded in the otherwise contemporary story; and mild gay content is evoked in samurai sequences.
