Here are the books that I am definitely taking to Japan:
- Scott Lynch, Red Seas Under Red Skies
- Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman and Fudoki
- R.H.P. Mason, A History of Japan
- Sei Shonagon, The Pillow Book
I am possibly bringing various John M. Ford books that I haven't read yet, in case that memorial panel actually happens—does anyone know if it's going to? If not, well, Ford is not my ideal vacation reading.
For the last half-dozen-ish slots, I find myself with a plethora of mass-market paperbacks, so, like everyone else: a poll!
Note: If a series is specified as "up to," include any comment on how many I should bring.
Which books should I bring to Japan?
