It’s the GENE MAPPER giveaway contest!

Happy June, all! We are super-excited for this month’s release, Taiyo Fujii’s hard SF novel Gene Mapper! The book has already received a great review from Publishers Weekly, which called it a new kind of cyberpunk novel. it’s near-future, scientific, and strangely whimsical in a way.

Gene Mapper is a story about a lot of “next steps.” The Internet has been replaced and upgraded; Augmented Reality is commonplace, as are genetically modified organisms. So that’s our theme for this week’s contest—what’s next? What emerging technology are you most interested in? Frightened of? (Don’t say jetpacks! There won’t be any jetpacks!) Tell us about it in a comment below: be serious, be funny, provide links, write a poem. Communicate in English, Japanese, Spanish, German, or Greek. We’ll read it. The best four will win a hard copy of Gene Mapper.

The future is now!

Or rather, The Future is Japanese received a starred review from Publishers Weekly! Sweet! The review reads, in part:

Eleven original stories and two reprints by notable authors both Japanese (Hideyuki Kikuchi, Toh EnJoe) and not (Catherynne M. Valente, Bruce Sterling) posit a diverse array of futures that may await Japan and the world. The bitter pessimism of the late Project Itoh’s “The Indifference Engine” is balanced by the essential optimism of Issui Ogawa’s “The Golden Bread”; the heroic sacrifice in Ken Liu’s “Mono no Aware” contrasts with the examination of malevolent genius in TOBI Hirotaka’s “Autogenic Dreaming.”

Two neat reviews of THE NAVIDAD INCIDENT

Our latest hardcover, the magical realist epic The Navidad Incident: The Downfall of Matías Guili got a couple of positive reviews in the leading trade journals, Library Journal and Publishers Weekly:

LJ says, in part (second item):

Verdict: Ikezawa, who won the prestigious Tanizaki Jun’ichiro Prize for this title, pushes the boundaries of storytelling and gives us a new vision of magical realism, merging the surreal with real-world dirty politics and humor. This mysterious and suggestive novel will attract readers who enjoy fantastical and surreal fiction.

Publishers Weekly writes:

Despite ghosts, mysterious disappearances, and magical priestesses, the book is as much a leisurely commentary on post-colonial dictatorships as it is a work of magical realism. Readers are treated to rambling digressions on topics like the importance of buses in Navidadian life or Guili’s past history and love life. Still, Ikezawa’s newest (after A Burden of Flowers) has its own strange, meandering charm, giving readers a glimpse into the legacy of colonization from a Japanese perspective.

For the curious, both these magazines review books for librarians and book-buyers (that is, bookstore staff charged with selection which books make it to the shelves). So, if your local bookstore or library doesn’t have The Navidad Incident yet, it likely soon will! And you can always ask for it!

Look what came in today’s mail!

Why yes, it is the advance copy of Mirror Sword and Shadow Prince! Coming your way next month. Feel free to use this photo as a guide to the size of the old crappy book you’ll need to throw away in order to make room for this one!

We also got our first ever Publishers Weekly review for a Haikasoru title, with this week’s Mirror Sword and Shadow Prince capsule: larmed at the transformation of her childhood friend and at the carnage that follows Oguna, the iron-willed Toko begins a quest that will take her across the empire in search of the pieces of Misumaru neckace, itself the manifestation of godly power. Ogiwara avoids the temptation to write a simple quest story; the representations of divine power are more burdens than gifts, weighing possessors down with obligation and terrible temptations… the review reads in part.
