About

Expanded Editions is a small press based in Los Angeles and Tokyo.
Our mission is to bring translations of modern Japanese fiction and essays to a broader public. A huge gap exists between classical novels that appear on syllabi, and the new kinds of works you find at comic-cons and other pop cultural events. EE exists to fill that gap by connecting significant and inventive works of popular fiction from earlier genres and worlds of Japanese popular cultures.
Areas of focus are vintage Japanese sci-fi, eco-writings, accounts and ethnographies of modern urban life, and much-vaunted (yet little known in English) translations of writings by modern women writers.
