Apparitions: Ghosts of Old Edo is a collection of nine stories that range from vaguely disquieting to definitely unnerving to outright chilling. Author Miyuki Miyabe is among the first Asian horror writers whose writing is influenced by Western horror (Lovecraft is an influence) and it really shows. Her stories might be about Japanese people, settings and creatures, but they build feelings of disquiet and dread in ways that also invoke something more western.

The Saturday Night Live FAQ a Companion for Every SNL Fan

saturdaynightlivefaq

I’m a big fan of Applause Theatre and their FAQ series. I have checked out their very detailed Horror  and Armageddon Films FAQs, so I’m kind of intrigued to see what they do with their newly announced Saturday Night Live FAQ. Since its debut on Saturday, October 11, 1975, Saturday Night Live has become a cultural landmark.

With a total of 745 episodes over its first thirty-eight seasons, the show is a veritable treasure trove of recurring characters, catchphrases, and memorable comedic and musical moments. Over the years, SNL has also provided a running commentary on American culture, politics, and society.

The Melancholy of Mechagirl – Delicate, Wistful, Moving Stories & Poems!

MelancholyOfMechagirl-Haikasoru

The Melancholy of Mechagirl is a remarkable collection of stories and poems that are (mostly) in some way connected with/to Japan. The writer, Catherynne M. Valente, could well be this generation’s Ray Bradbury.

The Melancholy of Mechagirl by Catherynne M. Valente; 224 pages; Haikasoru (VIZ Media)

Trailer #2: S.–It’s a Book!

s-book

Remember that weird trailer from Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams) that we posted a while back? Well, it was the first half of a trailer for a novel called S. The second half of the trailer was released today (check it out after the jump) and it is every bit as peculiar as the first half.

I’ve included the plot description from amazon.ca – it sounds like a unique experience.

Haikasoru Releases Japan-Inspired Melancholy of Mechagirl By Award-Winning, Bestselling Author Catherynne M. Valente!

MelancholyOfMechagirl-Haikasoru

Haikasoru’s Melancholy of Mechagirl, by Catherynne M. Valente, is the imprint’s first from a non-Japanese author – but between the book’s Japan-inspired stories and poems, and the author’s award-winning pedigree, it seems a natural choice.

With subjects like a woman who dreams of machines; a paper lantern that falls in love and the most compelling videogame that you’ve never played – and that nobody can play twice, Melancholy of Mechagirl definitely fits the profile of Haikasoru, the first U.S.-based imprint to dedicated to publishing translations of fine Japanese science fiction and fantasy. The book includes stories that were nominated for Hugo and Locus Awards – and Valente is a three-time Locus Award winner.

Melancholy of Mechagirl is available now. Valente has also been nomineted (twice) for World Fantasy Awards. Haikaoru is an imprint of VIZ Media.
