January seems like as good a time as any to start a list of
translations scheduled for release in 2013… And “start” is the operative word:
this alphabetical (by author surname) list truly is just a start since I still need
to check in with a few translators and publishers. I’m placing a link to the
list in the “Other Reading Ideas” section of the blog’s sidebar so it’s easy to
find... it’s just below the freshly updated list for 2012.
Edit, January 28: Oops, yesterday I forgot to include a link to Daniel Kalder’s Publishing Perspectives interview with Peter Mayer of Overlook Press about the Russian Library project... the project will apparently go on for a decade or so. Here it is!
