Masaki Gorō

Tagged: Author

(1951-    ) Japanese author who won the 1987 Hayakawa Shobō new writers competition with his debut novel Evil Eyes (1988). Subsequent work largely reflects a Cyberpunk sensibility, particularly the Seiun Award winning Venus City (1992), whose female office-worker protagonist habitually enters Virtual Reality as a male Avatar. Similar Gender issues confront the male protagonist of the sado-masochistic erotic novel Shadow Orchid (2002), a student at a co-educational school where males are fitted with remotely-controlled mechanical suppositories that leave them in thrall to a "Princess" dominatrix (see Sex).
