HANZAI JAPAN a finalist for the Locus Award

I am pretty pleased right now. My latest anthology, Hanzai Japan, a cross-genre collection of science fictional and fantastical crime/mystery stories, is a finalist for the Locus Award in the Anthology category.




Competition includes work edited by…*gulp* George R. R. Martin. Ah well, it’s an honor to be nominated. But do check out the book—it contains new stories by best-selling science fiction/fantasy authors such as Carrie Vaughn and Jeff Somers, and crime writers including S. J. Rozan and Naomi Hirahara. And those are just the Anglophone writers—it also includes translated work by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, whose novel All You Need is KILL formed the basis for the 2014 Tom Cruise film Edge of Tomorrow (I spoke about that one residency not too long ago), Yumeaki Hirayama, and more.

And now it’s also an award nominee! Don’t make me assign it on a syllabus in order to get you all to check it out.
