An English version of her story “The Long-rumored Food Crisis”, which The Japan Times called “a chilling account of moral breakdown after the Big One levels Tokyo”, was published in the 2015 collection Hanzai Japan.


In 2014 Kadokawa published Shinoda’s novel Indo kurisutaru (インドクリスタル , India Crystal) , the story of a Japanese businessman whose efforts to import special crystals needed for electronics manufacturing lead him to a small village in India, where he becomes involved with a local prostitute with exceptional cognitive powers, discovers a scheme to control uranium deposits, and almost dies in an anti-government uprising. Shinoda visited small Indian villages for details of setting and character, but based the fictitious Indian crystal trade in the novel on Japan’s trade with Brazil and Australia. The book won the 10th Chuo Koron Literary Prize.


After her Naoki Prize success, several more of Shinoda’s works were adapted for television. In 1998 Shinoda’s story Harumonia (ハルモニア , Harmonia) , a horror story about a cellist whose attempts to help a girl with a brain disease communicate through music lead to her falling in love with him and using previously unknown paranormal powers to hurt other people in his life, was published as a book and adapted by Nippon TV into a television drama starring Koichi Domoto, Miki Nakatani, and Akiko Yada. Her 2000 novel Hyakunen no koi (百年の恋 , One Hundred Years of Love) , about the problems experienced by a married couple with vastly different personal incomes, was adapted into a 2003 NHK drama. Her 1995 horror novel Natsu no saiyaku (夏の災厄 , Summer Calamity) , about a pandemic that strikes a town outside Tokyo, was adapted into a 2006 Nippon TV special program.


Seven years later, Shinoda won both the Yamamoto Shūgorō Prize and the Naoki Prize, but for different works. Shinoda’s collection Gosaintan: Kami no za (ゴサインタン: 神の座 ) , published in 1996 by Futabasha, won the 10th Yamamoto Shūgorō Prize. The title novella Gosaintan (ゴサインタン ) combines multiple genres in a story about a woman from Nepal whose arranged marriage to a Japanese farmer leads to confrontations with her husband’s mother, her own elevation as an object of religious worship, her husband’s subsequent financial ruin, and ultimately a new life in Nepal with more personal freedom but much worse conditions. Science fiction critic Mari Kotani has described Gosaintan as a story that “reexamines the true nature of romance” but also “openly exposes Japan’s stance toward Nepal”.


In 1990 Shinoda’s debut novel Kinu no hen’yō (絹の変容 , The Transformation of Silk) , a science fiction story about a biotech disaster that creates a monster and the social panic that follows, won the 3rd Shōsetsu Subaru Literary Prize for Newcomers. It was subsequently published in book form by Shueisha.


Setsuko Shinoda was born in 1955 in Tokyo. As a child she read manga by Sanpei Shirato as well as books by foreign authors such as L. Frank Baum, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Mark Twain, and aspired to become a manga artist. She graduated from Tokyo Gakugei University. Before beginning her writing career she worked as a municipal employee in Hachiōji, including working at City Hall and the municipal library. She began taking writing lessons at the Asahi Cultural Center intending to move into public relations, but ended up taking novel writing classes and writing her first novel.
