PORTUGUESE COLLECTION

A Portuguese edition of stories will be released in July by Livros de Areia, just in time for my visit to Lisbon. Luis Rodrigues of Fantastic Metropolis has been instrumental in making this happen, and is doing the translation. The book will include:

The Transformation of Martin Lake
Secret Life
Three Days in a Border Town

It's a kind of precursor to possibly having a novel or longer story collection out in Portugal. Viva a guarda avançada!

I'm delighted to share a page with Rhys Hughes and Jerzy Kosinski, among others.

Excellent news! I'm from Lisbon and I'm hoping to be able to attend any presentation of yours while you are here.

But tell me, does this portuguese collection means you'll be supporting Portugal today in the match against Angola? hehe ;)
