Galbraith has an earlier book called Japanese Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror
Films, published by McFarland.  It's very extensive in scope and is about have 2-5
page reviews and half filmography.

Probably the best book ever written on Japanese fantastic cinema is _Age of the
Gods_ by Guy Mariner Tucker, Daikaiju Publishing, 1996, but it had only one small
prinitng that I assume has sold out.  It was based on interviews with many of the
people involved in making the films--many, such as Ishiro Honda, Akira Kurosawa,
Momoko Kochi, and Masaru Sato--now deceased, that were conducted by the author.
He also provides the only interview material I know of for many others, such as
Yoshio Tsuchiya and Yoshimitsu Banno (Banno really ought to make another film,
IMHO).
