Translation rights for my little-story-that-could have been acquired by Jing Yanfei for China’s most widely circulated print mag Science Fiction World Magazine.
I’m so pleased by this. We’re moving toward a world where, thanks to the internet and e-publishing, cross genre, multicultural, and global literature will dominate the marketplace. There’s no question in my mind about it. Injection of fresh themes, settings, and voices is already revitalizing western and eastern literature and that’s only bound to increase. Hence finding new fans in different languages and cultures can only help the artist/writer.
I hope this bodes even better for Pakistani speculative literature’s future.
So cheers, all!
