Anniversary Giveaway Winners!

Thanks for all the wonderful responses—I loved the in-depth discussions of some of ours books. If you’re not a Haikasoru completist already, I hope you check out some of the contest entries and use the comments as recommendations for further readings. And now, the winners:

Brockton e. for his thoughts on Mardock Scramble. Apparently, we’ve turned him into a gambling addict! Sorry, Brockton.

Alex, for his love of the world-building in Loups-Garous. That book is one of my favorites as well, and I always felt it a bit under-appreciated. So I’m glad he liked it!

Kate C., who is a fan of Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse. Listen to what she says; I’d love to publish more j-horror.

Carrie L. who wants the nation of Navidad to be real. The Navidad Incident is a great book—hardcover magical realism! Impress your friends!

And finally Seth E. for his extensive comments on the process of novelization and Ico: The Castle in the Mist.

Thanks for all your great comments; it was a wonderful well to celebrate our anniversary! Winners, we’ll contact you this afternoon.

Mardock Scramble anime licensed!

According to Anime News Network, Sentai Filmworks will be licensing the Mardock Scramble anime series, one presumes for North American DVD and Blu-Ray release.

Speaking of the anime, here’s the trailer for the second film—or middle-third of the novel—The Second Compression. It is not safe to view at work, unless you have my job. (Cartoon boobs and whatnot.)

Mardock is everywhere!

A couple of pics of Mardock Scramble for ya!

Turn your monitor on its side for this one by translator Edwin Hawkes himself:


Right next to Jack Vance, in his local Waterstones over in the United Kingdom!


And here it is in Kinokuniya in Tokyo, in the foreign-language section. Note the yellow-covered Japanese title—it’s a magazine, actually, containing a list of ten must-read mysteries, many of which are also on the display. Also interesting is the call-outs for Orange Prize winning books. (The Orange Prize is awarded to women’s writing.)

Finally, here’s a neat review of Mardock Scramble, which reads, in part, Oefcoque comes across as a mixture of Stuart Little and T-1000 from Terminator 2…and if that wasn’t weird enough, the names of many of the characters are based on wordplays or references to certain recurring themes. Such as eggs.

PS: We had a couple of votes for a Facebook page for Haikasoru. If this interests you leave me a comment. If the demand is high enough, I’ll be sure to make one for you all.
