So here are “Projekt Stalin” and “Opowieść Zombilijna”, two of my novels rendered into the ancient and beautiful language of Poland and published there by the excellently-named publisher, Zysk i S-ka. I can't judge the skill of the translation, lacking Polish; but I can report that these are lovely examples of book-production, inside as well as out.
