Well, it’s the 21st of September, and you know what that means! Two new Haikasoru titles are on bookstore shelves and in stock at your favorite online retailer, today. Check ’em out:
Star Trek: The Motion Picture-era Mr. Sulu has his copies. Do you have yours?
Just in time for school—Rocket Girls! The latest from Housuke Nojiri, author of Usurper of the Sun, features hard science and teen girls. The series of books is also an anime. See?
I’ve heard the anime described as “The Right Stuff meets Sailor Moon” but I’d call the novel Gossip Girls if the titular girls had brains in their heads and real jobs. Surely, much better heroes for teen girls!
And then we have Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse by our resident “strange one” Otsuichi, just in time for Halloween. (We love timing things properly around here.) This book contains Otsuichi’s debut novella, and an entire other novel in Black Fairy Tale. We were thrilled when ZOO was nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award for Best Collection, and we’re hoping that we might get some more nominations this year—we have a novel, a novella, and a novelette in the same book, and together that makes Summer a collection. Dare we sweep the categories? Pick up a copy and see if we have a chance!
