Northern National to feature Godzilla and Godzilla Raids Again Worldwide Premier!
Windsor, ON. Award-Winning author Jeffrey Angles will make his first-ever worldwide convention appearance at the Northern National Collectors’ Convention at Caesars Windsor from September 29 to October 1, 2023. Presented by Brimstone Games, the convention will feature the Cartoon Kingdom Fan Experience.
Angles is a professor of Japanese at Western Michigan University. He wrote Writing the Love of Boys (Minnesota, 2011) and is an award-winning translator of Orikuchi’s The Book of the Dead (Minnesota, 2017) and Hiromi Ito’s The Thorn Puller.
He will launch his newly translated book, Godzilla and Godzilla Raids Again, (University of Minnesota Press) at the Northern National. Original author, Shigeru Kayama (1904–1975),was a science fiction writer and a scenarist whose stories about monsters and mutated sea creatures led to a request by Tōhō Studios to draft the first two Godzilla films. The film Half Human by Tōhō Studios was also based on one of his stories, and he contributed to the screenplay for the Tōhōfilm, The Mysterians. This will be the first English translation of the original novellas about the iconic kaijū Godzilla.
“I am thrilled to attend the Northern National, meet with fans, and showcase Godzilla and Godzilla Raids Again at its worldwide premier!” says Angles.
“We are excited to welcome Jeffrey Angles to Windsor and can’t wait for fans to learn more about his work,” says Northern National President Jeremy Renaud.
Angles will appear at the convention on all three days. Autographs and selfies will be available with the purchase of a book. He will also be part of a panel where fans can learn more about his work.
