For months now, we’ve been talking about how we could expand on the translation work at Clarkesworld and open the door just a little bit wider. One of the things we came up with was a short fiction oriented small press that is focused on translations… and so Clarkesworld Books (yes, re-purposing the old bookstore’s name) was born.
Tonight we launched a Kickstarter campaign for our debut project, A Hundred Ghosts Parade Tonight, the first English-language collection by Chinese author Xia Jia. I’ve published several of her stories at Clarkesworld and this collection will make several more available to English language readers. Personally, I can’t wait to read them.
Check out the campaign here:
If you are unfamiliar with her work, the campaign includes links to several free stories. I do hope you’ll consider supporting this project.
Oh and check out this art we have for the cover…
