Sci-fi novels from Asia and South America?

A reading group I'm part of is having a challenge where you need to read novels in a genre of your choice by authors based in each major continent.

I need some recommendations for English language sci-fi novels written by authors based/born in Asia and South America.

Any recommendations?

Try Ryu Murakami's Coin-Locker Babies for a SF-ish story that I recall being quite good. It's portrayed only very slightly into the future, but has elements that remind me of William Gibson and Neal Stephenson. (and throw in a bit of the surreal ala Haruki Murakami, discovered Ryu due to the shared last name).

S.P. Somtow, born and lives in Thailand, educated at Eton and Cambridge. Many excellent works, some merely very good, a few WTF?

Best novel is Jasmine Nights, though that's technically more magical realism roman-a-clef. The Aquiliad, currently in print from Wildside Press (no e-book edition, unfortunately, is an excellent trilogy of what if the Americas were part of the ancient Roman empire due to alien meddling and a well-known Lakota narrated it all. Mallworld is also highly thought of and in-print (I have not read it myself).
