Contemporary Japanese Fiction Online

Are you looking for some contemporary Japanese fiction to read in translation? Then you are in luck. Thanks to my friend Deborah I., I've learned about a journal of international writing called Words Without Borders, which is doing a special double issue called New Writing From Japan. I haven't read it yet, but here's a blog post about it on a site called One Chapter Reading Club, which features free e-reading and is curated in part by my friend Deborah I. (If you can read Japanese, you can find out her full name at this site! But don't panic if you don't; most posts have both English and Japanese. Deborah's a crackerjack translator.)

Thank Deborah, not me (and you can, at her site). I just reported on it :). Deborah is a really great translator and writer in her own right, by the way.
