2. The Kiriyama Prize
International prize awarded each year by Pacific Rim Voices, for fiction and nonfiction books that contribute to understanding and cooperation among the peoples and nations of the Pacific Rim and South Asia. Winners, reviews, author biographies, articles, and rules.
The Kiriyama Pacific Rim Book Prize has been awarded every year since 1996. It promotes books that will contribute to greater understanding and cooperation among the peoples and nations of the Pacific Rim and South Asia. The Prize is worth US$30,000. Half of the cash award is given to the author of the winning fiction title, and half is given to the author of the winning nonfiction title. Two panels of five judges award the prize to books that, in their opinion, are outstanding works that fulfil the goal of the award. The judges choose the winners from shortlists of five finalists in each category from the over 350 books submitted for the prize each year. In addition, lists of notable books in the fiction and nonfiction categories are also drawn from the judging process. Thus, each year, the prize recognizes, celebrates and promotes a huge variety of worthwhile books, together with their authors and publishers.
The Kiriyama Prize is part of the PacificRimVoices family of websites.
The Winners of the 2002 Kiriyama Prize have been announced: the fiction Winner is Rohinton Mistry's Family Matters , and the nonfiction Winner is Pascal Khoo Thwe's The Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey.

Isaac Asimov
Author of science fiction and science; scientist; teacher of biochemistry; lecturer; and broadcaster. Known for popularizing science ( The Collapsing Universe 1977) as well as his science fiction stories. He coined the terms "robotics" and "positronic." Baley/Olivaw Trilogy
A millennium into the future humans have colonized the galaxy and created the positronic (robot) brain. These are the two things that most effect these stories. The Baley / Olivaw trilogy chronicles the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together. Caves of Steel The Naked Sun Robots of Dawn Isaac Asimov has written hundreds of books. His nonfiction science books are used by college students everywhere to assist them in comprehending their class material. His fiction stories have entertained people for half-a-century and have motivated movies, like the recent "Bicentennial Man." In the 1950s, Asimov set out to depict robots that weren't enemies of humanity. Until then robots had been depicted as creatures who turned on their masters and threatened mankind. With his "Three Laws of Robotics," and his short stories that were collected together into I, Robot, Asimov redefined our image of robotics and created delightful conundrums for Susan Calvin, the robotic psychologist, to solve.
