Koji Suzuki 鈴木光司

Koji Suzuki (1957–)  is the best-selling author who established the distinct genre of "Japanese horror" for a worldwide audience. He made his literary debut in 1990 when he won the Excellence Prize of the Japan Fantasy Novel Awards for his novel Rakuen (Paradise). In 1991 his horror novel Ring (tr. 2004) became a bestseller, and its 1995 sequel Spiral (tr. 2005) took home the Yoshikawa Eiji Prize for New Writers. Both titles were adapted to film in Japan and became major hits, then were remade in Hollywood and became hits in the United States as well. His other works include the third title in the Ring series, Loop (tr. 2006); and Edge (tr. 2012), which garnered the prize for novels in the 2012 Shirley Jackson Awards honoring "outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic."
