Gutter, Only Gaijin, Japanese Literature

Justine-Wong-Illustration-GaijinPot-12Bit of an update. The winter is finally over in Japan and the spring festivals are just around the corner. I love this time of year, despite the hay fever, and feel energised again.

On the writing front I’ve sent my latest novel to a publisher I think will make a good home for it so all fingers, toes and protruding limbs are crossed. In the meantime, here are a few other things I’ve been doing:

I had a short story included in Gutter 17. It’s called Blackwaterfoot and was originally commissioned for an anthology that didn’t see the light of day. It’s good to be back in Gutter as well, in its new home after the demise of Freight.

The last in the twelve month cycle of The Only Gaijin in the Village is here. From April I’ll be trying something new with the series, so keep your eyes peeled.

My Japanese literature series is continuing with articles on books to look for in 2018, 5 science fiction authors and an overview of Fuminori Nakamura.

I’ve been writing a lot for the Japan Times as well, but in an editorial changeover most of it got pushed back in the schedule and will appear over the next few months. First up is my review of the latest issue of Tokyo Poetry Journal.
