PHANTASM JAPAN table of contents revealed!

We don’t have a product page or a cover yet, but we were so excited about Phantasm Japan, our fantasy anthology follow-up to our award-festooned The Future is Japanese, that we just had to share. Check it out:

Gary A. Braunbeck: “Shikata Ga Nai: A Bag Lady’s Tale”
Nadia Bulkin: “Girl, I Love You”
Quentin S. Crisp: “The Last Packet of Tea”
Project Itoh: “From the Nothing, With Love”
Yusaku Kitano: “Scissors or Claws, and Holes”
Jacqueline Koyanagi: “Kamigakari”
Alex Dally MacFarlane: “Inari Updates the Map of Rice Fields”
Zachary Mason: “Five Tales of Japan”
Miyuki Miyabe: “Chiyoko”
James A. Moore: “He Dreads the Cold”
Lauren Naturale: “Her Last Appearance”
Tim Pratt: “Those Who Hunt Monster Hunters”
Benjanun Sriduangkaew: “Ningyo”
Seia Tanabe: “The Parrot Stone”
Joseph Tomaras: “Thirty-Eight Observations on the Nature of the Self”
Dempow Torishima: “Sisyphean”
Sayuri Ueda: “Street of Fruiting Bodies”

We’re very pleased—we’ve got New York Times best-seller Zachary Mason; international fan favorite Miyuki Miyabe; horror legends Gary A. Braunbeck and James A. Moore (I wonder if they share the same middle name); the fiction debut of Lauren Naturale; one of the final short stories of Project Itoh; and an extremely surreal “New Weird” novella by Dempow Torishima, illustrated by the author himself.

Phantasm Japan, coming this autumn! Prepare yourself!

All You Need is Kill Graphic Novel Excerpt

Battle Royale Double Duty Winners!

We had Intern Jenny pick our winners this time around, and here is what she had to say!

IMG_20140328_103450_309

Ben B. -The series has a tendency to ‘blow some flipping minds.’ The way you came about reading and seeking out the series is unique and you describe the series perfectly.

Leslie -It’s great when you can pick up a series based on curiosity and then enjoy it more than a franchise like the Hunger Games. You also know you’ve found something exceptional when a series can take you by surprise and the characters that ‘become a part of you.’

Melissa -If Battle Royale can be shared amongst the family; you’re doing it right. There might not be princesses and talking cutlery, but Mitsuko is quite the princess that wields cutlery of a different kind. Also, if you can sit together and enjoy an old school, poorly translated VHS than you are true fans.

Jeremy -A poem like this requires a great amount of inspiration. I can tell Battle Royale has influenced you to the point of constructing such a creative poem.

It’s the Double Duty BATTLE ROYALE giveaway contest

In celebration of the fifteen anniversary of Battle Royale we are releasing a brand-new translation, and a non-fiction companion volume. And here is your chance to win both Battle Royale Remastered and The Battle Royale Slam Book!

All you need do is leave a comment on this post, explaining your love of/interest in/history with Koushun Takami’s cult classic. Write a little essay, or a little poem, about it. And if you leave one of the four best responses, you win both books!

You have till Friday at noon, Pacific time. You can enter in English, Spanish, or Japanese. We ship worldwide, so don’t let that stop you. Bring your A-game, and win two books!
