First of the Eight!

The t-shirt pictured in my previous entry is not as it will appear for real. The real t-shirt will include a picture of an asteroid and will be even more collectable, not to mention more comfortable. It will also be warm in very mild blizzards...

I went to the beach with Miss Frisbee Girl last night and the weather was most peculiar. Pockets of icy blowiness battled for supremacy with pouches of warmth, black clouds scurried in different directions, ducks mistook the sea for a pond... It went dark and then bright again halfway along the beach, as if someone in the sky had moved from one room to another, switching lights on and off as they went. The previous day was even stranger. Thick creamy clouds poured over the Mumbles peninsula like froth from a gigantic overspilling cappuccino machine...

I've recently heard that I've just been published in Greece by Polis Editions... Therefore there was no winner of the competition I arranged a few blog entries ago. Sorry! NEA ΠAΓKOΣMIA IΣTOPIA THΣ ATIMIAΣ is a customised version of my New Universal History of Infamy... It includes several stories not yet published in English and a story especially written for a Greek readership (a sequel to Borges' famous 'Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote' set in Athens).

The translator is the renowned scholar KYPIAKIΔHΣ AXIΛΛEAΣ (Achilleas Kyriakidis), who is also the translator of Borges, Calvino, Queneau and Perec. Click here to get a glimpse of the cover and to check out more Polis titles...
