Does anyone have a copy of the english translation of Zone Park Press? It is book 6 out of the 'The Heart of Go' series by Hinoki Press. Saw it at a shop years ago and wish I had snagged it. If you have it - do you enjoy the book? Would you be willing to part with it? I like O Meiens style and was hoping to read. Thank you for your time.

Happy playing.

I got my copy for 10 € from Go Shop Keima in the Netherlands a month ago: http://www.goshop-keima.com/books/books-by-publisher/hinoki-press/h08-zone-press-park-o-meien, they still seem to have a few more.

<edit>
(Haven’t read it yet, though, but I HAD TO GET IT because somebody on r/baduk said it seemed as if O Meien was drunk throughout the interviews :-D )
</edit>

Haha excellent. That sounds like a good read. I have seen the website you mentioned (thank you for the link) but was hoping for something in the U.S. (should have mentioned that in my original post), just to reduce the cost of shipping. However if that doesn't pan out I will have to bite.

According to SL, Hinoki Press is currently owned by GoGameGuru which no longer has a bookstore.

If you go to the old listing at GoGameGuru for the book, the original price was $20 and it was discounted to $14.99 but no stock was available even when the bookstore existed.

At Goshop Keima, the price is EUR10 so the USD equivalent as per google is $10.53
So you would get a really good deal even though the shipping would be more expensive.

Thanks for the info tchan001. gogameguru is great - I've bought from them before - sad to see their shop go, but they have solid reason. I will look a little longer for one in the US but might have to do the keima shop.

Cheers

Maybe I should then purchase the last few copies from Keima and offer them for big money on AbeBooks …

As an O Meien fan, any recommendations for games or commentaries that stand out? Hard to find much material on him.

I have not found too many game commentaries. Go World has a few of his games in issues number 55,89,90,92,93,95,96,98, and 105.

There is this gem.. Redmond vs. O Meien http://www.usgo.org/news/2016/03/redmond-on-o-meien-v-redmond/

Tons of his sgf files on go4go (need a free account to view).. http://www.go4go.net/go/games/byplayer/70

You can also scroll through this youtube search (not all of them are actually O playing, but most are.. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=o+meien+go

If I think of any more I will right them down. If you have any I missed I'd be happy for more info!

You can also search for his name on YouTube; you'll find NHK Cup games played by him and commented by him.

Because of the kanji, the forum software doesn't correctly convert the first URL into a link; just copy the whole line and paste it into your browser's URL bar.
