Selznick, Brian

(1966-    ) US illustrator and author, in earlier years almost exclusively for younger children or Young Adult markets, and whose work as a whole is too complex and multi-sourced to fit easily into any specific mode; over all, though, his art and stories, combined or separately conceived, can be seen as exercises in Fantastika.

Morioka Hiroyuki

(1962-    ) Japanese author whose first published work was "Yume no Ki ga Tsugeta nara" ["If Only the Dream Trees Could Touch"] (March 1992 S-F Magazine). His subsequent output has been dominated by a single Future History, the intricacies and achievements of which may arguably be said to have been ill-served in translation. / Morioka's chief work throughout the 1990s and 2000s was the Seikai ...
