“The Paragon Lure” will be translated and reprinted in the 2011 volume of the Polish anthology, Steps Into the Unknown (Kroki w nieznane). Quite a fantastic cover by Tomek Maroński.

My first foreign language sale

My novella “The Paragon Lure” has been accepted for translation and reprint in STEPS INTO THE UNKNOWN, a science fiction and fantasy anthology series in Poland. It’s apparently a kind of legendary series of books in Poland, originally publishing in the 70s, and more recently revived by Solaris. The last volume has some great authors. I’m very pleased with this first foreign language sale, and look forward to the volume!
