Haikasoru reviews

Haikasoru is a line of translated Japanese SF and fantasy. James has been reading and reviewing them all. I get the impression he's run out of books, so here are the links. ++ indicates books that sounded particularly interesting to me.

As the previous post said I've read Usurper, and liked it; I've also read Lord of the Sands of Time, and Dragon Sword, ditto (the one I quipped affectionately was "Crystal Dragon Shinto"). For Rocket Girls I've seen the anime based on the two books; fun though unusually comedic and silly.

MITSFS has been slow in meeting its goal of collecting all SF published in English.

Edit 2011-Oct-25: I've read Stories of Ibis. It was awesome.

Edit whenever: I've read Next Continent too. Sort of The Girl Who Sold the Moon.
