This is my first experience in translating a compilation of short stories by the most famous sci-fi/fantasy writers out there. There are 18 short stories by:
Patricia A. McKillip
Peter S. Beagle
Orson Scott Card
From a bizarre story of our own world to the wizards of other places, this compilation is a must for fantasy fans. Every story is unique and enjoyable.
The problem I had while translating this book was that I need to switch moods every time I started on the next story. Each writer had their own voice, their own style, their own color. I found it rather hard to change a writing style in so short a time. Usually I follow one author’s style in a whole book, lasted for about a month at least, and before I continue working on the next book (by a different author) I took a day or two to ‘erase’ one particular writing style from my head. But for this book I had to do it continually, non-stop, for a whole period of translating.
Well, at least it was enjoyable. Hopefully I can deliver each and every author’s own uniqueness.
