Somtow Sucharitkul is also known as S.P. Somtow. I knew that he had done a fair amount of SF and horror writing, but I did not know that he is also a composer.
He also directed a horror film called The Laughing Dead. I thought I had seen it, but upon reading the synopsis, I realized that I was confusing the title with another movie.
A friend reports on this entry in the series: “I read one back in the day and it was INSANE. It had samurai lizards and Isaac Asimov made an appearance. Liked it.”
