Five Kind-of Reprints

Five of my translations have been re-published this month, though they're probably not technically a reprint.

The Spanish translations of Frozen, Cat Burglar and Launch have been published at Microficciones y Cuentos, which is a replacement site for Sinergia, where they first appeared a few months back.

Also re-appearing are two Romanian translations that appeared in ArtZone SF magazine and have now both been posted on their new website. Both Observers and In Response to Your Reader are there, now accompanied by fabulous illustrations.

The Gondolier in Ido

Ido is a constructed language, derived from Reformed Esperanto, created to be a universal second language for speakers of diverse backgrounds.

Here, then, is The Gondolier in Ido, its 57th language.

La Gondolisto 

Da Gareth D Jones

La nigra pruo di mea gondolo glate trasekis la kalma aquo dil kanali. La gracila batelo servabis me bone dum multa yari, portabis pasajeri tra l'aquovoyi dil urbo sub la guidanta manui di generacioni de mea ancestri. 

La suno subiris super l'anciena urbo, divenigante l'aquo inkatra rubando jacant inter eleganta gresa edifici. Me aspiris profunde la koldeta vespero-brizo. 

Kad esis irga loko plu bela kam ca marveloza urbo de kanali? Dum ke la batelo eniris sua amarageyo me haltis por regardar kun kontenteso adsupre aden l'obskureskanta cielo di Marso.
