  1. Spriggana says:

    One more book for consideration had been published at th very end of 2010: “A Polish Book of Monsters” edited and translated by Michael Kandel with f sort stories/novellas from Polish authors. See http://www.amazon.com/Polish-Book-Monsters-Michael-Kandel/dp/0940962705/ or http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Polish-Book-of-Monsters/122897307778218 .

    At least one of the stories had been previously published online (“Yoo Retoont, Sneogg. Ay Noo” by Marek S Huberath http://wordswithoutborders.org/article/yoo-retoont-sneogg-ay-noo-1/ ), and other one in fragments (“Iron General” by Jacek Dukaj http://dukaj.pl/English/ReadingRoom/TheIronGeneral ). I do not know the translated titles of the remaining three stories and could not find them anywhere, but the authors are Andrzej Sapkowski (Polish title: “Wiedzmin”), Tomasz Kolodziejczak (Polish title: “Klucz Przejscia”) and Andrzej Zimniak (Polish title: “Klatka pełna aniołów”).

    Note: The story by Andrzej Sapkowski had been published previously in “The Last Wish”, but in different translation.

    • admin says:

      Thanks. As our jury is very busy right now we’ll probably roll that one over into next year. We designed the award rules to allow us to do that in order to not miss publications that happen late, or that we don’t hear about in time.

    “Good Luck, Yukikaze” by Chohei Kambayashi;
    Translated by Neil Nadelman

  3. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    Karin Tidbeck has a self-translation in the latest Weird Tales that originally appeared in Swedish, as well as one in ODD? jv

  4. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    Oh–and Cheeky Frawg will issue this award-winning story in e-book form in November. It has never been published in English before:

    The Toy Fixer by Yasumi Kobayashi (translation by Gregor Hartmann)

  5. I’d like to draw your attention to the first-ever direct from Polish-to-English translation of Stanislaw Lem’s classic SOLARIS. This brand-new translation is by Bill Johnston – director of the Polish Studies Center at Indiana University. It was published by Audible.com (as an audiobook exclusive) on June 7, 2011. Audible commissioned the new translation in cooperation with the Lem Estate – and to mark the 50th anniversary of the novel’s original publication.

    As you may know, the existing translation of SOLARIS is actually an English translation of a French translation of the Polish. Lem was always dissatisfied with the translation, which changed character names, turned dialogue into narrative, and was otherwise incomplete. The news of this new translation was picked up by blogs around the world and covered in such estimable publications as The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/jun/15/first-direct-translation-solaris?INTCMP=SRCH

    I hope you’ll consider this landmark translation worthy of being honored. Please let me know if you have any questions at all!
    Best,
    Steve Feldberg
    Sr. Director, Editorial Business Development
    Audible.com

    PS – I emailed a complete manuscript to the jury@sfftawards.org address…

  7. ‘The Map of Time’, by Felix J. Palma (‘El mapa del tiempo’, translated from Spanish by Nick Caistor). It’s been making some waves since it came out last June (in a love-it-or-hate-it way), and many people say Caistor’s work lives up to the original Spanish. No easy feat, that.

  8. Map of Time is the most enjoyable book I’ve read all year, but also due consideration is “The Stranger’s Woes” by Max Frei.

  9. Mihai A. says:

    Two Romanian writers had their works translated into English this year:
    Marian Coman’s collection of stories, “Fingers and Other Fantastic Stories”, translated by Carmen Dumitru & Raluca Chirvase http://www.amazon.com/Fingers-other-fantastic-stories-ebook/dp/B005GQW132/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1317804659&sr=8-1
    and Michael Haulică’s story was published on The World SF blog this year in Adriana Mosoiu’s translation http://worldsf.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/tuesday-fiction-lapins-by-michael-haulica/.
    There was another Romanian SF novel released in English, but it was published last year, so I am not sure if it’s still eligible, Dan Dobos’ “The Abbey” http://www.amazon.com/Abbey-Dan-Dobos/dp/0982432984/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1317804761&sr=1-1

  10. Michael says:

    A Romanian novel was published in May 2011, The Guardian Angel, by George Lazar, translated by Theodora Popescu.
    http://www.amazon.com/Guardian-Angel-George-Lazar/dp/6068315207/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1318061031&sr=8-7

    And one correction: my story LAPINS published in World SF Blog was a reprint (first published in SF Crowsnest in 2004). Sorry. And thanks.

  11. Vincent Docherty says:

    Translation from Spanish,for consideration by the jury (long form – published late November 2012):

    Do you want me to organise for AmazonCrossing to send (possibly email) a copy of the book?

  18. I guess I missed the announcement that nominations had opened. Please queue these up for next, year, the winners of Brazil’s Hydra Competition, published 2012. Even though IGMS is subscription-based, both of these stories have been made freely available on the site.
