Wild Cards To Brazil

My fantasy novels have been doing very well in Brazil, thanks in no small part to my wonderful publisher LeYa and some gorgeous Marc Simonetti covers... and now my Brazilian readers will have the chance to sample my other long-running series as well. WILD CARDS is coming to Brazil.

I am thrilled to announce that I've just signed a deal with LeYa for Brazilian (Portugese) editions of the entire Wild Cards series, all twenty-two volumes, from the original WILD CARDS to the still-in-progress LOWBALL.


I couldn't be happier, and my Wild Cards compatriots and contributors are doing cartwheels. I hope my Brazilian fans will enjoy reading about Jetboy, the Turtle, Dr. Tachyon, Bugsy, Yeoman, Curveball, Golden Boy, Capn Trips, Rustbelt, IBT, the Sleeper, Oddity, and the rest of the Wild Cards gang as much as we've enjoyed writing about 'em.


(And yes, I know, one of these days I must go down and visit Brazil. I'd love to, really. Just a matter of finding the time. Maybe some year for Carnival, I hear that's pretty wild).

The translation works well
Mr Martin, the translation is good, really. Some brazilians do not understand, or just don't wanna see that the portuguese language is very rich.. in comparison with portuguese, the english is a little poor (the english lost words and meanings among the centuries...). One word like "hill", "holt" or "raven" could mean a lot of different things, or the same thing in translating, so is difficult for the translator to decide what word use for express your intentions, like autor. I think that is satisfactory, they respect the original language when necessary. Your series is really awesome. For me, the best i ever read. Keep making us happy! Waiting for the sixth book. :)

You are absolutely right. Leya does a very good job.
