About Excalibur Books

Excalibur Books is an independent publishing house based in Tokyo, Japan, publishing Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy. A lot of what we publish is fiction set in Japan or has themes of Japanese mythology, legends and folklore, but we cover other times and places as well in our fiction and non-fiction. We have eleven titles in print (both ebooks and paperbacks) at this time of writing.


8th & 9th OCTOBER 2017 

This year, the Japan Writers Conference  will be held in Tokyo again for the first time in seven years! Excalibur Books will have a booth selling paperbacks,  and author John Paul Catton will give a presentation on the various ‘Punk’ sub-genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy, at 2pm on Monday the 9th.
