Miraibanashi – 3 novels of espionage and revolution in a dystopian future Japan
In this dystopian future Japan, a few brave souls take on a corrupt system—from the inside.
In the shadow of Mt. Fuji, the oppressive Batsu government controls the rebuilding of a devastated country, bestowing boons on privileged citizens while leaving the rest to fend for themselves on the fringes. After a disastrous job ends with Batsu enforcers hunting him, reformed thief Roshike runs—right into the heart of their regime, the fortified Gaku complex, to take on an almost impossible task. And he just might stand a slim chance of success, if only he’ll accept some help. But first he has to figure out who to trust.
An unusual revolution has begun…

Watchbearers: When everything goes wrong, they keep going on…
From Book 1: When it all goes sideways, they keep going on.
Everything goes wrong when the first research expedition from the future lands in the summer of 2000 in New York City. The master time-travel device is destroyed, the professor in charge is killed, and the rest of the travelers are scattered across that ancient metropolis. They’re stranded in the past, their project in shambles from the start, and their troubles are only beginning…
Research Assistant Samantha finds her team leader just in time to witness one of her colleagues kill him—and she’s the only person in a position to bring the murderer to justice. Mugged on a sidewalk in the middle of the day, Team Leader Page finds help from a native of the era, but graduate physics student Matt Walker proves too curious about her—and her watch—for comfort. And after seeing her mentor die before her eyes, Team Leader Anya struggles to salvage something from the disaster, starting with rounding up the rest of the travelers—not knowing even that much has already become an impossible task. Or that circumstances are conspiring to put her in very personal peril…

About the Author
James Litherland is a graduate of the University of South Florida, and now resides as a Virtual Hermit in the wilds of West Tennessee. He has lived various places and done a number of jobs – been an office worker and done hard manual labor, worked (briefly) in the retail and service sectors, and been an instructor. But through all that, he has always been a writer.
He is a Christian who tries to walk the walk (and not talk much.)
James has been a voracious reader for as long as he can remember. He cut his teeth on Nancy Drew and devoured all the pulpy adventure stories he could get his hands on before moving to genre greats like Agatha Christie and Isaac Asimov. Then in junior high he became a writer. He started studying the craft of writing – reading books and magazine articles, joining a writers’ group, and taking creative writing classes – and he wrote short stories, eventually a novel, and even some poetry. After over thirty years of practice he thought he’d learned a little, and that’s when he wrote his debut novel Critical Contingencies and published it independently. And he learns a bit more with every book he writes.

Thank you, Steph, for taking time out of your busy schedule to feature my books! You write some of the most insightful (even when critical) reviews on the net, and I hope you’re feeling better soon and able to share your thoughts with us more often. (Because I need to add more books to my ever-growing TBR pile :shakes head:)
