Product Overview

An ancient culture, immense social transformation, terrible disasters, and economic booms makes the island nation of Japan a laboratory for how we''ll all live one day, and a muse to science fiction writers and fantasists from around the world. Both sci-fi masters and hot new up-and-comers have seen the future...and it is Japanese.

From the Publisher
Editors Note A web browser that threatens to conquer the world. The longest, loneliest railroad on Earth. A North Korean nuke hitting Tokyo, a hollow asteroid full of automated rice paddies, and a specialist in breaking up ?virtual? marriages. And yes, giant robots. These thirteen stories from and about the Land of the Rising Sun run the gamut from fantasy to cyberpunk, and will leave you knowing that the future is Japanese!
