The first, which describes the liberation of the Japanese internment camp can be found over on Tor.com.
The second, over at the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog is an introduction to one of the main characters, Beniko Ishimura.
Here’s what a few people have been saying about the United States of Japan, thus far:
“A searing vision of the persistence of hope in the face of brutality, United States of Japan is utterly brilliant.”
— Ken Liu, Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy winner and author of The Grace of Kings
“Mind-twisting and fiercely imaginative; Tieryas fuses classic sci-fi tradition with his own powerful vision.”
– Jay Posey, author of The Legends of the Duskwalker series
“It’s a tense and intriguing read, a blend of alt history and cyberpunk and thriller. 1988 California where San Diego is a razed landscape home to American rebels, and Japanese mechas patrol the coast? Heck yes!”
– Beth Cato
United States of Japan will be available from all good retailers on March 1 (US/Can) / March 3 (UK/R.o.W).
