German edition of The Mirage coming März 2014

by Matt Ruff on May 16, 2013

The Mirage German editionA heads-up for my German fans who’ve been emailing to ask if and when The Mirage would be available in translation: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag has officially set publication for March 2014. The novel will be available in both hardcover and ebook editions.

Also:

* The American ebook of The Mirage is still on sale for $1.99.

* Just finished watching season 2 of The Borgias. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, this is like the non-fantasy version, with Charles VIII’s army replacing the ice zombies and Machiavelli’s The Prince serving as the tie-in book. Really well done.

* Last Saturday was the 2013 championships for the Rat City Rollergirls. Grave Danger beat the Sockit Wenches 202-167 in a close-fought bout. But the best moment of the evening came during the mid-bout break, when Method of Madness proposed to Jalapeño Business. Jalapeño said yes, and the crowd went wild. This tops the previous coolest thing to happen off-track this season, Nancy Pearl’s Feb. 9 halftime appearance where she did a live reading of Where the Wild Things Are. Mazel tov to the happy couple!

The regular derby season is over, but the post-season bouts start next month, with visiting Montreal and London teams going up against the Rat City all stars. Full schedule is here.

* Cat font!

So Hanser dropped you and DTV picked you up? Or DTV offered a haywagon of gold more than Hanser? … anywho, THAT doesn’t really matter.
What does matter: it’s good to see that once again the Bandinis are responsible for the translation (never change a winning team), and that the german cover art is quite good

I would be surprised if dtv outbid Hanser. Hanser owns 21% of dtv. But since when is dtv doing hardcovers?
