“The Negotiation” Heads to Poland

I got a pleasant surprise in my email yesterday from one of the editors at Szortal, a Polish science fiction site.  They liked my story “The Negotiation,” had translated it into Polish, and published it.  This is a first translation for “The Negotiation” (which originally appeared in Daily Science Fiction), and it’s the fifth non-English language for my work, which I find pretty amazing.

I haven’t been selling much in the way of new stuff, but my back catalogue is doing some heavy lifting for me during this slow period for new material.  English reprints are always nice, but there is something doubly satisfying about having a story translated into a different language — even if I don’t make anything financially off it, which is often the case with foreign translations.

So if you know Polish, head over and check it out.  If you do check it out, stop by here afterwards and let me know if the translator did a good job with it.
