Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan
Occupation: Writer
Nationality: Japanese


Born in Nagoya, Japan in 1950. Graduated Meiji University in Economics. Debut in 1974 with Kamigari. Won Kadokawa Award in 1977 with Kamigami no Maiso, and Nihon SF Taisho Award in 1982 with Saigo no Teki. Has authored over 140 works covering a wide range including SF, adventure, general fiction, police/mystery, and fantasy.

Yamada Masaki has written a large number of mainstream SF and mystery works, but has also deliberately authored crossovers between these and other fields. Some of his most powerful and thought-provoking work has been SF, although personally he reads more mystery fiction than science fiction in recent years. He is generally known as an SF author in Japan, and is steadily overcoming this reputation by challenging, and quite successfully, the mystery world as well, as evidenced by recent awards for Sojo no Tsumikiuta and Mystery Opera.
