The first novel from the sci-fi author gets its U.S. release through VIZ’s Haikasoru imprint. A full synopsis after the jump.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Who can win in a war of all against all? The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies have transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it’s up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations, and to find the true heart of darkness – a genocidal organ.
The award-winning novel (it took home the “Best SF of 2007″ award from Japan’s “SF Magazine”) was one of five publications from the author’s short-lived career (he died in 2009 with the bulk of his work being published posthumously).
VIZ is offering “Genocidal Organ” for $14.99 in print and digitally. You can find out more about the book on the Haikasoru site.
