The Future is Japanese: Stories From and About the Land of the Rising Sun

The Future is Japanese: Science Fiction Futures and Brand New Fantasies from and about Japan. - Masumi Washington, Nick Mamatas, Ken Liu, Felicity Savage, David Moles, Project Itoh, Rachel Swirsky, Toh EnJoe, Pat Cadigan, Issui Ogawa, Catherynne M. Valente, Ekaterina Sedia, Hideyuki Kikuchi, Bruce Sterling, TOBI Hirotaka This would be more of a 3.5 star book because it's fairly uneven. Some of the stories are excellent, others not so much. Full review later, but I'd like to mention that Catherynne Valente's contribution, One Breath, One Stroke, was very, very good.
