Asura Girl

There was a kid in my sixth-grade homeroom named Takashi Nizaki. He was really smart and got good grades, but at times he could be a sadistic bully and a bit schizo. He would be friends with you one day only to cut you dead the next. He was smart and good at sports, and he could talk circles around everybody, but there was something a bit spooky about him. Still, he ruled the class. The only one who could stand up to him was Masaki Urayasu from the class next door, and when Urayasu was beating the crap out of Nizaki, it was Urayasu’s friend, Yoji Kaneda, who waded in to break it up.

Phantasm Japan Excerpt

From “Those Who Hunt Monster Hunters” by Tim Pratt

The following was found posted in the profile section of user AmericanRonin48 on a popular online dating site. The user is no longer active.

The monster hunter owns several samurai swords and often wears a fedora. He likes to practice with his wooden sword in the backyard—the neighbors complain when he practices shirtless with bare steel—and though he’s never taken a kendo class, he watches a lot of instructional videos on YouTube and believes if tested by a master he’d rank at least fifth dan. He speaks enough Japanese to impress a non-Japanese-speaking date at a sushi restaurant, and loves the films of Kurosawa, the entire Zatoichi series (he sometimes practices with his wooden sword while blindfolded), and classic anime, from before it became popular in the West. He hasn’t mastered the trick of catching a fly with chopsticks yet, but he’s working on it.

His favorite thing in the world is sleeping with Asian girls, or at least it was until he discovered the pleasures of hunting monsters. More…

Edge of Tomorrow…it IS today!

Hello everyone, our day is here! Edge of Tomorrow, the film, is out today in the United States. After years of planning, and writing, and casting, and filming, the movie is in theaters all across the country.

And now, friends, it is your turn.

It is your turn to say, perhaps when going to the theater, or maybe on the way out, “Oh, I read All You Need is Kill, the novel Edge of Tomorrow is based on, years ago.

You know, before it was cool.”

You are not nerds! You are the cool ones now! GO FORTH AND CONQUER!

Just To Let You Know: the EDGE OF TOMORROW novel is ALL YOU NEED IS KILL

As there seems to be some confusion, despite some pretty clear labeling on the cover and its product page, we thought we’d write a brief note to help everyone understand that the Edge of Tomorrow novel now in bookstores and supermarkets is All You Need Is Kill.

The cover call-out is “Previously Published as All You Need Is Kill.” See? Look!

edge_250

The author is Hiroshi Sakurazka.

The protagonist is Keiji Kiriya.

The text is identical to the text of the trade paperback published in 2009, except for minor copy corrections.

Edge of Tomorrow is not a novelization of the film. It is not a book written by an American author. It does not feature a character named Billy Cage.

Edge of Tomorrow is All You Need Is Kill with a temporary cover and title change, so that some fraction of the forty-fifty million people currently being exposed to the commercials for the feature film might now that the movie is based on a novel. As you can imagine, a novelist and a publisher would like more people to be aware of a book.
