Wow! I've been translated!

I'd like to extend a huge thank you to Luke Kowalski, who has been kind enough to translate my story "The Copper Responds" into Polish. You can see (and read, if you know Polish) his translation here.

As I once said in reference to Laila Lalami upon translation of one of her stories into Italian:

It occurs to me that an even greater honor than being published in your own language is to be translated and published in a foreign language publication--the fact that someone thinks your story is worth the effort of translating speaks volumes about its merit.

I am utterly flattered that Luke felt this way about my story, so much so to go the great effort of translating it. Luke, you have my deepest gratitude.
