The Future Is Japanese

The Future Is Japanese Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Original and classic science fiction about Japan from some of the greatest writers in the world.

A web browser that threatens to conquer the world. The longest, loneliest railroad on Earth. A North Korean nuke hitting Tokyo, a hollow asteroid full of automated rice paddies, and a specialist in breaking up “virtual” marriages. And yes, giant robots. These thirteen stories from and about the Land of the Rising Sun run the gamut from fantasy to cyberpunk, and will leave you knowing that the future is Japanese!

Review:

"Since the debut of Viz's Haikasoru ('high castle') imprint in 2009, it has imported and translated the best of Japanese speculative fiction, earning Haikasoru editor Mamatas a Hugo nomination in 2011. This anthology, an attempt to link Japanese and American SF, continues that tradition of greatness. Eleven original stories and two reprints by notable authors both Japanese (Hideyuki Kikuchi, Toh EnJoe) and not (Catherynne M. Valente, Bruce Sterling) posit a diverse array of futures that may await Japan and the world. The bitter pessimism of the late Project Itoh's 'The Indifference Engine' is balanced by the essential optimism of Issui Ogawa's 'The Golden Bread'; the heroic sacrifice in Ken Liu's 'Mono no Aware' contrasts with the examination of malevolent genius in TOBI Hirotaka's 'Autogenic Dreaming.' Mamatas and Washington, Haikasoru's editor-in-chief, have created a uniformly excellent anthology that will appeal to English-reading speculative fiction fans all over the world.
