Popular Japanese horror writer Koji Suzuki will publish a short novel called Drop on rolls of toilet paper. The story takes up about three feet of paper, so it can be read in one sitting. The company is advertising this as "Japan's scariest toilet paper."


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This advance in publishing can now take its place beside the Internet book and the Kindle. A popular Japanese horror writer produced a short novel. Koji Suzuki will publish it on rolls of toilet paper. The story takes up about three feet of paper so it can be read in one sitting. And every roll will have several copies. The company is advertising this as, quote, "Japan's scariest toilet paper," because it is a horror story entitled, "Drop."
