Book Description

10 Sep 2011
March 11, 2011 - Three prefectures in northeastern Japan are devastated by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, and a massive tsunami that takes the lives of 20,000 people. April 2011 - 75 authors from 11 countries came together to collaborate on a mixed-genre anthology of short stories to benefit the orphans of the disaster-stricken Tohoku area. Horror, humor, human drama, science fiction, fantasy, absurdist, bizarro, weird, new wave, bugpunk, Cthulhu, Sherlock Holmes, historical fiction, "I" stories, crime, and much more. Of the 75 stories in the anthology, a great portion of them were written for this anthology, including the Jerry Cornelius short "Walking the Hog" by Michael Moorcock. A fabulous collection! Royalties of this anthology go to the NPO Smile Kids Japan in an effort to support the orphans in the tsunami-struck areas of Iwate, Fukushima and Miyagi (Tohoku).

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Achievement 20 Aug 2011
By SteveH
Format:Kindle Edition
75 Authors from 11 countries speaks for itself - this is truly an international e-book which reflects a world-wide response to the terrible apocalypse that swept across Japan in March of this year. In only four months Brent Millis, the editor, managed to pull together this wide ranging anthology of sci-fi, fantasy and horror from which 100% of all monies is donated to the Earthquake relief. That alone is enough to encourage you to put your hand in your pocket, but it is far more than a charity book, it is also an excellent read!

When I began reading the e-book I started noting down quality stories to reference in this review, and then gave up. I might as well have listed all of them. There is something here for everyone, and all of the highest quality. And what a great joy it is to read translations of stories I might never have come across otherwise.

I cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diverse Collection For A Worthy Cause 16 Aug 2011
By Dan Blair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
QUESTION:
What could be better than finding a great collection of diverse and interesting short stories to read?

ANSWER:
Being able to help Japanese orphans while you're taken away to another world!!!

Kizuna: Fiction for Japan (a charity anthology) was put together by a large group of talented writers contributing their time, effort, and all these wonderful stories for free to give YOU even more reason to help the tragic victims of the recent earthquake disaster in Japan.

Containing an incredible 75 authors from around the world; you'll find a variety of genres including horror, pulp noir, historical fiction, weird twisted tales, new wave and plenty more inside this deliciously well written volume.

Some stories are short, some are medium length, but each tells a unique tale that will make you want to hunt down these authors individually and pick up as much of their published work as you can!

If you pick up just ONE BOOK this summer, make it Kizuna: Fiction for Japan, you seriously won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kizuna - Fiction for Japan! 31 Dec 2011
By Dellani Oakes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Kizuna is an amazingly diverse collection of short stories and poems from around the world. They range from traditional Japanese folklore to out of this world sci-fi and horror.

The selections are quite short, making this an easy book to pick up and read in snatches. Each story leaves the reader thinking about it, even as they wonder what the next holds in store.

One thing which makes Kizuna highly unique is that the authors contributed their work free of charge and are donating proceeds from sales to quake relief in Japan.

I urge everyone to pick up a copy to support this effort. You won't be disappointed. With over 70 short stories and poems, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Offering for a Worthy Cause 24 Jun 2012
By Deborah L. Warner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The cause is noble, of course. The devastation of the March 11 earthquake in Japan was horrific. It is easy to make an argument for purchasing this book simply because it is the right thing to do. But there is a delightful treat in doing the moral equivalent of eating one's veggies. Kizuna: Fiction for Japan is a vast collection - 75 talented authors from around the world. The collection is very deep, encompassing short fiction of every imaginable genre. There is something for almost everyone. I found each beginning paragraph so compelling that I ended up reading genres that I would never consider looking at before. I was so pleased with many of these authors that I now have an incredibly large reading list to work through. Kizuna: Fiction for Japan is one of those rare combinations of circumstance - a chance to do something altruistic while acquiring something brilliant and enjoyable.
