Howdy folk! United States of Japan by Peter Tieryas

We have not one but TWO excerpts of Peter Tieryas‘ hotly anticipated United States of Japan to share with you today.

The first, which describes the liberation of the Japanese internment camp can be found over on

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).
