Brittany

Aliette De Bodard’s story Ys in Interzone #222 is set in Brittany, an area I’ve visited on holiday several times. It starts off in Quimper, a town that made me smile at the memory of trying to follow the signposts to a place that everyone was pronouncing differently.

The story includes a poem in Breton, the celtic language of Brittany that’s closely related to Cornish. My short story The Gondolier has been translated into Breton and I thought I’d found a market for it at one point. That fell through so I may post it here instead.
