The fourth book of our well-received Speculative Japan series introduces new talents from Japan, and fresh new stories by some of the outstanding authors we've introduced to the English-speaking world already. From deep in the mountains of the Japanese countryside to the plains of frigid Pluto, from a warm South Pacific isle to a freezing mountainside, to Mars or inside a lonely psyche... a positive smorgasbord of speculative enjoyment, in English for the first time!

About the author

Yamada Masaki was born in Nagoya, Japan in 1950. He attended Meiji University, graduating with a degree in Economics. His debut novel Kamigari won the sixth Seiun Prize (the Japanese equivalent of the Hugo Award) in 1975. Three of his other books have also won Seiun prizes: Chiky¿: Seishin Bunseki Kiroku, in 1978; H¿seki Dorob¿, in 1980; and Kishin Heidan, in 1995. He is the author of over one hundred forty works in a wide range of styles, including science fiction, adventure, general fiction, police procedural and mystery, and fantasy, often deliberately blurring the lines between genres.
While widely known as a science fiction author in Japan, but has been building on this reputation by challenging the mystery world as well with novels like S¿j¿ no Tsumikiuta, awarded eighth place in the Bunshun Best Mysteries of the Year, and Mystery Opera, which won the Mystery Writers of Japan Award.
