Mr. Romulus Hillsborough has agreed to be our next guest in our Spotlight on Budo series.

Romulus Hillsborough is the author of RYOMA Life of a Renaissance Samurai (Ridgeback Press, 1999) and Samurai Sketches: From the Bloody Final Years of the Shogun (Ridgeback Press, 2001) RYOMA is the only biographical novel of Sakamoto Ryoma in the English language. Samurai Sketches is a collection of historical sketches, never before presented in English, depicting men and events during the revolutionary years of mid-19th century Japan. Reviews and more information about these books are available at www.ridgebackpress.com.

This forum will open up to questions early this week. Mr. Hillsborough is not a martial artist, and thus would like to limit questions to his books and Meiji Restoration history.
