The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it’s up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations and to find the true heart of darkness—a genocidal organ.
Keikaku (Project) Itoh was born in Tokyo in 1974. He graduated from the Musashino Art University. In 2007, he debuted with Gakusatsu Kikan (Genocidal Organs), and took first prize of the “Best SF of 2007” in SF Magazine. He is also the author of Harmony (Haikasoru 2010), which won the Japan SF and Seiun Awards in Japan and was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award in the US. After a long battle with cancer, Itoh passed away in March 2009. The ending of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the 2010 PSP game, was dedicated to him.
