Eli K.P. William is a British-Canadian sci-fi novelist and translator of Japanese literature. He is the author of the Jubilee Cycle trilogy (Skyhorse Publishing), set in a dystopian future Tokyo where every action—from blinking to sexual intercourse—is intellectual property owned by corporations that charge licensing fees. The series includes Cash Crash Jubilee (2015), The Naked World (2017), and A Diamond Dream (2023). He also contributes book reviews and essays in both English and Japanese to such publications as Subaru, The Japan Times, and The Malahat Review.
Born in Toronto, Canada, he has spent most of his adult life in Japan. His translation of the Japanese novel, A Man (Crossing 2020) by Keiichiro Hirano, is a bestseller. He has also translated essays and short stories by some of Japan’s most renowned authors for Granta, The Southern Review, Kyoto Journal, and more.
He is the only member of the SFWJ who writes fiction in English and is also a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA).
