The Court of the Air – Manga’d

Ever wondered what the manga-types at Japanese Publisher Entebrain would do if they got hold of ‘The Court of the Air’ and did a trad. manga cover for the book?

Well, wonder no more, for here it is.

I’ve just ordered a copy of it from Amazon Japan and will report more fully when I get my hands on it. Not sure if it’s an illustrated work inside, or if it’s my text translated as Kanji-script, as my Japanese publisher does both illustrated and non-illustrated editions for its Western authors.



I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    what was the end result, just a translation or part illustrated?

    Not illustrated, alas, apart from one interior b&w piece of art, a translation into kanji script – albeit a very nice-looking one.

    I just happened to read the Court of the Air, earlier this week. I found it while looking for steampunk books. I was rather impressed by the writing style, and now that I know there are more, I plan to read them over the next 2 weeks, if I can get them all.
    Also, The Court of the Air done manga style would be awesome.

    Hi Josh – well, number six in the series is coming out in the UK late this month (From the Deep of the Dark).

    Glad you’re enjoying them.
