International science fiction, anyone?

Hat tip to Adam Raymond over at Good, a “collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits…for people who give a damn”. I had just set up Google Alerts for the term “found in translation” and it sent me over to his blog post by that name, where he introduces the monthly online magazine of translated international literature, Words Without Borders. This month’s theme is science fiction, and regardless it’s definitely worth a read. In Raymond’s words:

Founded by Alane Salierno Mason, WWB has published more than 1,000 translated works— including short stories, excerpts, graphic novels, and poems—from 106 countries, in 79 language. By exposing readers to the art and the perspectives of the unknown, Mason hopes to allow for more international communication.
