A book about Keiji Haino, titled, Vocations de l'ombre - Haino Keiji - Une autre voix/voie du rock (Vocations of the Shadow - Haino Keiji - Another Voice / Way of Rock) written by Bruno Fernandes is published by the French publisher, Les presses du réel. The book is accompanied by a cd of unreleased solo (two tracks) and Fushitsusha material (3 tracks), titled, unheard pieces of the late XXth and early XXIst centuries. The book can be ordered for worldwide delivery at http://www.lespressesdureel.com/EN/ouvrage.php?id=5284. (At the time of posting, this site still says, "pre-order", but this is where I ordered my copy from and I have the book in hand.) More information is in the Fushitsusha section of the discography.
