I'd never heard of the Japan America Society of Southern California before picking up a copy of "Shaken: Stories for Japan." As of the anthology's publishing, the Society has been in existence for 102 years.

Before the earthquake and subsequent tsunamis that hit Japan in March 2011, I hadn't heard of many of the places in Japan that would dominate world headlines. That's what a tragedy will do. For all the wrong reasons, it brings together people regardless of borders, cultures or routine.

SHAKEN is a book of short stories written by some of the most popular writers in fiction today, especially in the mystery genre. Tim Hallinan approached some of his friends with the idea of a book that could be sold as an ebook with all the money going to help the people of Japan suffering from the earthquake and the tsunami. SHAKEN is the result of that collaboration and it is a book worth everyone’s attention. For the paltry sum of $3.99 on Amazon, less than the cost of most fancy coffees, re...more

What an impressive collection of short stories with a Japan theme! The Japan Society of Southern California put together this ebook of short stories whose proceeds were to go to disaster relief.

The authors are first rate - several award winners (and future award winners) among them. The stories vary in theme from racism in the San Francisco earthquake to post tsunami, um, enterprise. Some are funny, some bring a lump to your throat. Some are crime stories, some are not.

Consider spending 3.99 an...more

SHAKEN: Stories for Japan a collection of memories of the recent catastrophe shared by survivors is very moving. I.J. Parker has done a real service by writing down these stories shared by the people who were there. They will serve as a testimony to both tragedy and courage.

This is a collection of short stories by a wide range of authors, using a wide range of styles, for the purpose of raising money to help the victims of the earthquake that devastated much of northern Japan. Some of the stories didn't do much for me, some were WONDERFUL. Worth the read, and you get to help some people at the same time!

SO far I've only read the short by Brett Battles, but I look forward to reading the other stories.
