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.

As I tweeted, upon receipt: 'In the post: copies of Projekt Stalin and Opowieść Zombilijna. Very cool. That the latter is thinner than the former makes me want to sing: 'Zombilijna, Zombilijna, tiny little thing/Zombilijna dance, Zombilijna sing.'
