      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Books by Japanese Authors - in need of recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hello to all fellow Book Lovers here!

 

I would like you to recommend me books written by japanese authors only - but I need specific kind of books.

 

I'm looking for literature depicting visions of future (it would be mainly sci-fi, I guess).
Not limited to planet Earth, but I would highly prefer a realistical setting (I am NOT looking for Isekai genre and fantasy elements).
Action may take place in the near or faraway future. 

 

Thanks in advance to all kind souls willing to recommend books meeting the requirements :)

I've read novels by several Japanese authors, but they are all contemporary, and even though some of them have fantastical elements none of them could be termed sci-fi (or are set in the future).  

 

Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, by Haruki Murakami might be worth a look, but otherwise I'm not sure where you would start with this.
