Romanian Predator, Portuguese City of Saints

Although the deal is still being worked out, it does appear now that a Romanian-language edition of Predator: South China Sea will indeed appear around the same time as the English-language edition. In fact, we will be in Romania (it looks like) around the release date, following our appearance at the Czech Republic convention. A Romanian New Weird looks to be in the works as well.

Also, the Portuguese City of Saints & Madmen is definitely going ahead in late 2008, early 2009.

    I’ll be in line hugging my copy of Shriek.

    Speaking of… I was thinking of something the other day. Is it better to be among the first or the last in line? If you’re first, you get a fresh author without an aching hand after signing dozens of autographs – but you (well, I) feel guilty if you do more than say hi and hand over the book, because you’re making n other people wait for longer. If you’re last, you get a tired author who wants nothing more than go home or to a restaurant.
    (What prompted this train of thought was the fact that when you did the signing for Veniss in Bucharest I was among the first, felt guilty because of the people behind, then stupid because I didn’t chat with you for a bit longer. There’s no winning this one…)

    If anyone (fan or author) has an opinion, I’d love to hear it.

    (and, Jeff or Jeff’s blog-taker-care-of, one of the plugins that let you subscribe to comments would be so lovely…)

    Yes, it’ll be in late August. Both Ann and I will be there.

    Jen–I really never mind signing books, so it doesn’t matter if you’re near the beginning or the end.

    Looking forward to seeing you all!

    Horia, I’ll remember that, but considering Jeff and Ann’s hectic schedule from last time… I won’t get my hopes up too much.

    Luis, I know, but what about when I only want the comments for one entry, not the whole website?
