I’m happy to report that the French publisher Telemaque has republished my first novel A Small and Remarkable Life. This is the second French printing, and it appears under their Gallimard Folio SF imprint as a mass market paperback (the first was a trade paperback). You can’t tell from the picture, but they’ve retitled the novel La vie secrete et remarquable de Tink Puddah, which I think translates to “The secret and remarkable life of Tink Puddah.” They also came up with a really cool cover. That’s Tink in the foreground, nice and appropriately blue, standing in front of his cabin.
I now join such masters under the Folio imprint as Philip K. Dick, Robert Silverberg, Jack Vance, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and a whole bunch others, including my Canadian friend Robert Charles Wilson. I can also officially say that the French love me as much as I love them. I’ve had more success with the book in France than I have in North America. A very special merci beaucoup! to my pal Rob Sawyer, who originally published the novel under his Robert J. Sawyer Books line in 2006. It’s been a great ride!
