As the literature of ideas and imagination, Science Fiction and Fantasy simply demands discussion. Our selection for January is Haruki Murakami's Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. Japan's most widely-read and controversial writer, author of A Wild Sheep Chase, hurtles into the consciousness of the West with this narrative about a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monstersnot to mention Bob Dylan and Lauren Bacall.
