I'm very pleased to have sold my story Venus of Venus to long-running Polish magazine Nowa Fantastyka, to appear probably in July.

This will be my first appearance in this magazine, my fourth story in Polish and the third language for this story, following English and Hungarian.

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.
