[Comment by Mr. Saki Aizawa]
Ten years have passed since I became a writer.
I was only suffering and frustrated, but I was able to continue writing because there were people who said I liked my work.
“Medium psychic detective Satoshi Jozuka” is a novel that would not have been born without the past 10 years with you. Thank you for choosing the best.
