Hit Parade of Tears

Izumi Suzuki, Sam Bett (trans.), David Boyd (trans.), Helen O'Horan (trans.), Daniel Joseph (trans.)

Izumi Suzuki had ideas of how things might be done differently, ideas that paid little the laws of physics, or the laws of the courts. In this new collection her skewed imagination is applied to some classic science fiction and fantasy tropes,

A philandering husbands get bestial punishment from a wife who’d kept her own secrets; time-travelling pop music aficionados stir up temporal bother when their nostalgia carries them away; idle high school students find themselves dropped into a adventure in another dimension, but aren’t all that impressed; a misfit band of space pirates find their live on the stars amounts to space; Emma, the Bovary-like character from Terminal Boredom’s ‘Forgotten’, lands herself in another bizarre romantic pickle.

Wryly anarchic and deeply imaginative, Suzuki was a writer like no other, and these 11 stories offer readers the opportunity to explore this singular writer’s work further.
