Masaki Gorō

Entry updated 16 September 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1957-    ) Japanese author who won the 1987 Hayakawa SF Contest for new writers competition with his debut story collection Evil Eyes (coll 1988). This and his subsequent work largely reflect a Cyberpunk sensibility, particularly the Seiun Award-winning Venus City (1992), whose female office-worker protagonist habitually enters Virtual Reality as a male Avatar. Similar Gender issues confront the male protagonist of the sado-masochistic erotic novel Shadow Orchid (2002), a student at a co-educational school where males are fitted with remotely-controlled mechanical suppositories that leave them in thrall to a "Princess" dominatrix (see Sex).
