    ALIA 2007 is arriving as a Storm, as the Legion of the Dawn, as a Vibrogun, as a Banning...

    Alia 4(x 3): comunicato stampa

    Dopo un lungo lavoro di preparazione esce la quarta edizione di Alia, l’arcipelago del fantastico, in tre volumi per complessive seicento pagine.

    Raccoglie sette illustratori (quattro giapponesi e tre italiani) e ventisei autori contemporanei e viventi (dieci italiani, otto giapponesi, otto di lingua inglese), con altrettanti racconti inediti e mai tradotti in italiano, offrendo ai lettori un panorama ampio, complesso e articolato del fantastico contemporaneo in tre diversi continenti e importanti aree linguistiche.

    Alia 4 (x 3) è il logico sbocco del lavoro condotto nelle tre edizioni precedenti e siamo convinti susciterà l'interesse – e forse anche un po’ di stima e affetto, perché no? – dei lettori che hanno finora seguito il nostro progetto.

    Buone letture!

        Yes, Alia 4 is great.

        And for anyone having problems with the Italian language, here's a rundown of the thing... (titles translated - or left in the original - for the sake of comprehension)

        Kurimoto Kaoru - Reminiscences
        Minagawa Hiroko - Exhile
        Miyabe Miyuki - Two Forever (art by Ueda Ake)
        Tsuhara Yasumi - Disassembling the Angel (art by Fujiwara Yuri)

        I add a short note as translator and editor of the English-language section of the book - each and every contributor's piece was a joy to translate.
        Nobody's tougher than Charles Stross, nobody's subtler than W.J. Williams, nobody's creepier than Dennis Detwiller.

        This said, translating "The Greater Conqueror" was like taking a vacation.
        No need for dictionaries, no need for revisions - the prose started flowing and kept going, and then the thing stood, perfect, after two nights of work.
        And that, I think, is a measure of greatness.

        And here I better stop this rant and go back to work!
