      Is this a historical text or just current players?

        The Superstars book isn't very deep (it can be purchased directly from Rob Fitt's site IIRC), but it covers all Japanese HOFers up until its publish date of several years ago.

                Will do...It's now safely at the publishers and I suspect it will come out in the second-half of 2008. By the way, I was able to get Roel De Mon in the Holland chapter (alas, because of the timing he is in a footnote ). Anyway, I will definitely keep you informed.
