Overview

March 11, 2011 - Three prefectures in northeastern Japan are devastated by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, and a massive tsunami that takes the lives of 20,000 people.

April 2011 - 75 authors from 11 countries came together to collaborate on a mixed-genre anthology of short stories to benefit the orphans of the disaster-stricken Tohoku area.

Horror, humor, human drama, science fiction, fantasy, absurdist, bizarro, weird, new wave, bugpunk, Cthulhu, Sherlock Holmes, historical fiction, "I" stories, crime, and much more.

Of the 75 stories in the anthology, a great portion of them were written for this anthology, including the Jerry Cornelius short "Walking the Hog" by Michael Moorcock. A fabulous collection!

Royalties of this anthology go to the NPO Smile Kids Japan in an effort to support the orphans in the tsunami-struck areas of Iwate, Fukushima and Miyagi (Tohoku).

    Kizuna Fiction for Japan

    Kizuna is an amazingly diverse collection of short stories and poems from around the world. They range from traditional Japanese folklore to out of this world sci-fi and horror.

    The selections are quite short, making this an easy book to pick up and read in snatches. Each story leaves the reader thinking about it, even as they wonder what the next holds in store.

    One thing which makes Kizuna highly unique is that the authors contributed their work free of charge and are donating proceeds from sales to quake relief in Japan.

    I urge everyone to pick up a copy to support this effort. You won't be disappointed. With over 70 short stories and poems, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
