Dragon Sword

We're bringing you the hard science fiction and heroic fantasy YOU want, in two new releases from our Haikasoru imprint: THE OUROBOROS WAVE and the paperback edition of DRAGON SWORD AND WIND CHILD! Perfect for holiday gifting!  =)

With a small, elite list of award-winners, classics, and new work by the hottest young writers, VIZ Media's Haikasoru is the first imprint dedicated to bringing the most compelling Japanese science fiction and fantasy for English-speaking audiences in the US and beyond!

The philosophical hard science fiction THE OURBOROS WAVE takes a look at the humans who have harnessed the power of a black hole (dubbed Kali) and built a society around it... Conflicts simmer between the retrograde humans of Earth and the men & women of the Artificial Accretion Disk Development association, while within Kali lies a mystery that will test everyone...

Ouroboros

The heroic fantasy DRAGON SWORD AND WIND CHILD follows 15-year-old Saya, raised to be of the Light, but who discovers she is the reincarnation of the Water Maiden and a princess of the Children of the Dark! The forces of Light and Dark both seek to claim her, as she's the only mortal who can awaken the Dragon Sword... Will Saya be able to make the dreadful choice between Light and Dark, or will she be doomed, like all the Water Maidens who came before her?
