Japanese SF

An article on Japanese SF, with a focus on media and a selected bibliography, by Aidan Doyle at the Internet Review of Science Fiction, written after the Japanese Worldcon.

"Yoshio Kobayashi is a leading translator of foreign SF into Japanese. When asked what the impact of the Worldcon on Japanese SF was, he answered, "Actually not much. There were many programs about American SF in English and many about Japanese SF in Japanese and they didn’t cross over. We couldn’t produce a decent Japanese SF anthology in English except an old one. There weren’t enough foreign fans and writers to cause a great impact." – read the rest of the article
