Veniss Underground in Poland: Google Says “Hallucinogens Not Needed”

Veniss Underground comes out in Poland in July, apparently–looks like a lovely edition! I believe that Shriek: An Afterword comes out later, if I am remembering correctly what my agent told me. Here’s some of the Google translation of the description from that page, just to show you how Google can give you the gist but still be silly. Alas, I don’t know Polish. Do hope to visit in the next year or two.

“The underground venisse to dark beauty and a true story koszmarna, winning fantastic land assault, which transforms in a completely new quality. Jeff VanderMeer has not wasted time to create a conventional, coherent futuristic world, instead of its characters are simple and almost mitologicznÄ… live in the countryside, many of which owe both Hieronimowi Boschowi and Salvadorowi Dali, as well as SF authors such as JG Ballard and Simon ings. RozgrywajÄ…ce the world outside the disaster progressed side by side with a deep reflection and discovery by the protagonists themselves. Are also full of intense, scattered pages of the novel at all moments of beauty and horror, alive wyjÄ™tych directly from the bad dream.

Warning: Readers’ underworld venisse discourages the adoption during the reading of hallucinogens. Will not be needed. And well.

  2. Don’t know. I don’t have much contact with the Polish and Russian publishers. No idea why those two in particular. I have frequent contact with other foreign publishers.

    ‘winning fantastic land assault, which transforms in a completely new quality’ – sweet.

  4. Alex says:

    Actually, we don’t know who are the authors (or author) of most of the covers published in this series. I remember Ian R. McLeod asking the same question last year in Czech Republic.
