Yep can't wait for penguin highway to come out tomorrow, my tickets already booked. Fell in love with the other works so hopefully this one also.

I'd love to see Morimi's novels get adapted into English. Upon reading the article, I'm guessing his novels are just regular novel, not under Light Novel crowd? It seems like there is explosion of light novels, but most of them are too juvenile to me.

He's real, he's real, he's really really real.

Thanks for the article, I am now very interested in seeing how the original novels are different from Yuasa's takes. I do love all the adaptions of the author's works.

Written works that win the Japan SF Taishou are generally regular novels, not light novels. (Some anime win, and some anime or novels win that later have manga or light novel versions, like Dennou Coil and From the New World.)
