A handful of news: September 2018

I've been neglecting this blog for a long time because of too many commitments overall. It's been a hectic year. I hope to return to blogging in English sometime. Meanwhile, just a quick update if anyone happens to drop by: 

  • The three first volumes of my Teatr węży [Darkgleam] series have been re-released in 2017 and 2018 by Wydawnictwo Rebis, one of the largest Polish publishers. Some people love the new covers (see above) and some people hate them, whereas my opinion is... kinda neutral? Anyway, I'm working on the fourth book now!
  • My short story Returning to the Garden has recently appeared online in Longshot Island zine. It's possibly the oddest bit of prose I've ever penned (I'm normally not into experimental prose), a story about the famous wooden statue of Mary that survived the Nagasaki nuclear blast. (UPDATE AFTER TWO YEARS: Meanwhile, it seems that Longshot Island has disappeared from the Internet, along with all the stories published there... A pity.)
  • Last year, I had the pleasure of translating Chris Colfer's YA novel The Wishing Spell (volume I of the Land of Stories series) into Polish; the translation will be published in October 2018 by Papierowy Księżyc.
  • Two stories of mine (the novelette Czarne i czarniejsze and the short story Pod skórą) have also appeared in print in Polish in recent months, while another story is awaiting publication. All in all, not a bad year.
