I'm Number One...

... in Portugal.

The first translation of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is just out. And the gold medal for fastest translation goes to Portugal.

Mind you, my Portugese publisher splits each book into two volumes, so this is only the first half of DANCE... but even so, the first volume is in the bookshops, and I'm told it has vaulted to the top of the Portugese bestseller lists.

So... which country will get the silver medal? Spain? Italy? Germany? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, back in the States, DANCE fell to #3 on the NYTimes list last week, and this week is down to #4. But still in the top ten, nine weeks after publication.

As Luka Gerovac has said the first volume in Croatian is out since July 26th. I have wolfed it, seems like ages ago and am eagerly waiting for the second one.
So, I think some corrections should be made concerning the golden medal!

You can find one here (I think it's the good one, I translated the title) ;)

BTW
By the way thanks for recommending "The Descent". I consider myself a film connosieur (is that how you spell it?) and cant believe I missed that one.

Best regards from Croatia,
Vanja
