United States of Japan is an upcoming novel that the author says is a “spiritual successor” to Philip K Dick’s classic The Man In The High Castle. Only, instead of the Japanese and Germans sharing the US in the 1960s, Japan is the sole oppressor, and they’re lording it over America with an army of giant mechs.

I’m posting this here in Fine Art because to accompany the novel, author Peter Tieryas got John Liberto—one of the best game artists in the business—to provide some illustrations, including the cover shot. And I thought they were badass enough to share here.
