Review of “A Time for Revolution” (1963)

Hirai Kazumasa (writer).

Read in 2020.

Read in Speculative Japan.

Artists escaping an oppressive post-apocalyptic society transfer their minds back to the near future of the time of publication to obviate dystopia.

A smaller-scale, potentially non-deterministic The Shadow out of Time (1936) with comedic incongruity.
