24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai
|Genre||Science fiction novella|

24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai is a science fiction novella by American writer Roger Zelazny. It won the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 1986 and was also nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novella in 1985.
The novella was partly inspired by Hokusai’s Views of Mt. Fuji (Charles Tuttle, 1965), a book that contains precisely 24 prints painted by Hokusai. In Zelazny's version, the character Mari consults that very book during the story. (Hokusai painted more than 100 images of Mt. Fuji but he is best known for another selection of them: "36 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai").
