Cover of the Japanese Language Edition of The Human Division

I like that they have Ambassador Abumwe in there.

The Japanese version of the book came out just two days ago, so if you’re in Japan, go get it!

  1. Hey dude… Did you get any copies… I would so love one to practice my Japanese….

  2. Do you know offhand how many foreign-language versions of your books exist?

  3. Going to re-read THD soon, but I forget, are there any Japanese characters in it?

  4. Greg:

    No author copies yet. They probably will arrive in the next couple of months.


    I’m in 20 or so languages at this point not counting English, so I would expect that there are close to 100 different foreign language editions to date.


    There might be some with Japanese surnames. I don’t remember off the top of my head.

  5. That’s a great cover, though I have to admit that Abumwe always existed in my head looking very similar to CCH Pounder (similar in demeanor, too, to her character in Warehouse 13).

  6. I’m sure the anime will be faithful to the original source material…. you do have catgirls and a teenage protagonist right?

  7. @John Chew: In my head it was always, “jaan sukaaruji”, of course, my Japanese teacher thought I should be “robii” instead of “raabi”, so I think if you’re Japanese you can say English names any way you like.

  8. So, for the purposes of cosplay, is that what an MP-35 looks like?
