Recently Martin Šust of the Czech magazine XB-1 contacted me about translating two of my stories. They will be publishing translated versions of “The History Within Us” and “The Sounds of Old Earth,” the latter of which is up for a Nebula Award. I was very flattered that Martin asked to translate these stories. I became familiar with the Czech magazine after my friend Mercurio D. Rivera had several of his stories appear there. Their covers are always superb, and the magazine itself is beautiful. I’m not sure when the stories will appear yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing them, as they will be my first translated works.
