The short stories Ogiwara-sensei blogged about earlier this summer will appear in an anthology entitled Magatama no Sekai: Ogiwara Noriko Dokuhon (The World of Magatama: A Noriko Ogiwara Reader) this December. It includes a talk with Noriko Ogiwara and Nahoko Uehashi, creator of the Moribito series, on Japanese fantasy.
More details will be added to the new Magatama no Sekai page on this website!
