Vintage Japanese Sci-Fi



This story appeared in the April 1928 issue of Shin seinen–New Youth–a monthly magazine filled with genre fiction that aimed at urban youth. Now available on Amazon, it is the first in our series of Japanese Vintage SF stories.


A story of spies, a femme fatale, and burbling worker unrest in urban Shanghai. Unno Jūza’s “The Case of the Robot Murder” (人造人間殺害事件) is the first robot story by this pioneer of Japanese SF.
