A writer living in Mushashino, Sugimoto Ryuji’s novels “Yatou Denki” and “1” were featured in the local newspaper, Koushin Newspaper. One day, an application from Shiota Yoshiko was delivered to Koushin Newspaper with the gist of its contents saying “Yatou Denki seems interesting, so I’d like to read your publication”. Sugimoto Ryuji then sent a letter of acknowledgement to Yoshiko. However, in less than one month’s time since the application was made, these words were delievered “Your novel is too boring so I will not purchase it anymore”.
