Aces and Elephants

Aces, elephants, actors (well, understudies)... oh, my.

There's a new Wild Cards story up on Tor.com. This one is by the amazing Paul Cornell, and features Abigail the Understudy, Elephant Girl, and Croyd (the Sleeper) Crenson. What more could you want?

Oh, art by John Picacio? It's got that too.

Enjoy... and spread the word.

Dear M. Martin,

First of all, please forgive me for my english skills !
I'm a huge French fan of the Game of Thrones TV Show,and I've also bought your books, translated in French.

Which I cannot read ! The editors has picked up a really bad translator, all the books are non sens, he translated it words by words, just like a computer or Google would did it ! It gives unreadable sentences, and I've also learned that he has deleted many passages because he wanted to, and he rewrote your books in his way.

I think that it's really scandalous, and I think you should have your word to say ! I've bought the first tome 25€ (nearly the price of the 4 first books in original version) for nothing !

I'm not the only one to complain, a little research on the web will give you an idea of how terrible his translation is !

Please, ask the editors to retranslate your books, I really want to read it and to make my family (non english speakers) read it too !

Many thanks and sorry for the desagrement !
Have a great day !
