Apparitions: Ghosts of Old Edo – Quietly (and Not So Quietly) Unnerving Tales from an Asian Master!

Apparitions-Cover

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.

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.
