VIZ Media has just announced plans to publish critically acclaimed Japanese Science Fiction Novels under a new imprint - entitled HAIKASORU.
This first-of-its-kind imprint for English speaking audiences will focus on Science Fiction and Fantasy stories and is scheduled to publish twelve books a year beginning with the first release in the summer of 2009.
The HAIKASORU imprint will be headed up at VIZ Media by Nick Mamatas, a respected author of science fiction as well as an editor at VIZ Media.
