This is a site devoted to The Samurai, the Japanese TV series of the 1960s which was such a hit in Australia. It is constantly evolving as I find more information or add things I think fans of the show would like or find interesting. It began life as a fanzine published in 1988 which in turn was based on an article I wrote for Multiverse. In 1999, I scanned the fanzine and published it on my web site and have been adding to it ever since so that now it doesn't bear much resemblance to the original.
