Jeffrey Angles is a professor of Japanese literature at Western Michigan University who has won numerous prizes for his work translating Japanese literature into English. One of his special interests is mystery, adventure, and science fiction writing, especially that related to monsters, ghosts, yokai, and kaiju. Among his most recent translations is the Godzilla & Godzilla Raids Again (University of Minnesota Press, 2023), written in 1955 by Shigeru Kayama, the same science fiction author who wrote the first draft of the screenplays for the first two Shōwa-era Godzilla films. He has recently completed a forthcoming translation of the novel The Luminous Fairies and Mothra, co-authored by Shin’ichi Nakayama, Takehiko Fukunaga, and Yoshie Hotta.

Jeffery will be signing copies of Godzilla and Godzilla Raids Again at G-FEST.
