Overview

The Wharf by Jesse Bull, Logan McHenry

Tokyo, 2034 A.D. Japan has finally relaxed her borders to allow an overdue influx of immigration, and with it subsequent street crime and true multilingual diversity. The world’s first transition to an entirely cashless banking system has created a society completely reliant on the Personal Life Assistant™, or PLA, a mobile device that acts as phone, wallet, keys, identification and more. Over the course of roughly one week a story of technological security, financial terrorism and socioeconomic upheaval unfolds around a small cast of characters, including J., a hard-drinking American banker, Sana, a media personality and journalist, and Shade, an underground tech kingpin shrouded in mystery. The Wharf is a subversive, parodical black comedy and also a classic crime novel penned by two Americans with a combined twelve years’ experience working, studying and living in Japan.

About the Author

Here are a selection of things that Jesse Bull recalls: smuggling 180 ml bottles of Black-NIKKA© whiskey into MUSE nightclub, drunkenly wearing yukata to all three days of the Azabu Summer Festival, picking up girls at 5th rate izakaya w/ students passed out in the hallways, running to the convenience store for sours before strutting the catwalk, picking up girls with ¥800 bottles of shochu, listening to The Birthday Massacre, an awkward first meeting with an anxious new friend.

Logan McHenry emerged from the forests of New Hampshire in the late 1980's, where he was raised by wolves. Undoubtedly due to the violence he witnessed during his upbringing (including one grizzly incident of fratricide), he has harbored an enamoration for crime since the time of a pup. Logan spent five of his most formidable years in Japan, where he befriended co-author Jesse Bull. A resident of Brooklyn, Logan is on an eternal quest to find the meaning of life at the bottom of a bottle of brown liquid.
