Product Details


“For anyone who’s read author Koji Suzuki’s Ring, you’ll know that the author is less concerned with jolting you using sudden shocks or abrupt, violent scenarios; instead, Suzuki has a thing for gradually tilting the world for his characters and the reader, shifting the rules ever so slightly so that the certainties of our science can no longer be trusted… Edge, which sees the author at his most instructive, the book acting at times as a brief(ish) treatise on nothing so much as the history since the Big Bang, the evolution of mankind, the fragility of our math, and all tied into the abrupt disappearance of a suburban Japanese family. As apocalypses go, this is an inventive one, and although Edge won’t have you leaving the lights on out of fear of the dark, Suzuki’s novel (which mixes that genre with sci-fi, journalism, and a little bit of reality TV) will probably have you keeping the lights on picking through some of the works in his extensively-sourced bibliography.” –

“Suzuki is called the Stephen King of his country, but that’s not really accurate; King isn’t nearly as adept at creating complex characters, explaining scientific principles or writing the kind of dialogue that might actually be spoken by humans.” – Las Vegas Mercury

“…Suzuki is plowing a path that nobody else has traveled, …” – Agony Columns
