Sponsored fit in there to flavour....

But are there enough SF works being translated that I will have at least one I want to read a week?

Also posted at Dreamwidth, where there are comment count unavailable comment(s); comment here or there.

Does translated SF have to be newly published, or can you go back into history a bit? That might also pull in some not-central-to-genre works.

Wide net seems best, I think.

Los Bros Strugatsky would be interesting. When I was in Moldova, I had a fun conversation about Monday Begins on Saturday, their analog of Operation Chaos.

Presumably the new translations, which I have been picking up.

Roadside Picnic or The Second Invasion from Mars would be good, if you want to read some actually-good (though not cheerful) SF.

Manga counts as books, right?

January. That's like four months away.

Just saw this and it sounds most interesting, as a translated work.

I think that if you included YA, collections, and older works (and re-issues), there must be enough translated work around in aggregate for a couple of months. Casting a wide net (Gorodischer, e.g., a more literary kind of sf/fantasy) would help too. In the case of works getting a new translation, it might be interesting to do comparisons.

Don't burn yourself out!


Structure is part of not burning out.
