My short story "The Headline Trick," is due out in Hayakawa's SF Magazine in January. The translator, Yoshio Kobayashi, has translated the works of Bruce Sterling, Eileen Gunn, and many others. So if you're in Japan please go and procure a copy in January.

If you want to read the story in English go a purchase a copy of Rabid Transit: A Mischief of Rats.

Hi Douglas, congrats!

Actually it is just out today (it's January issue but Japanese magazines usually have advance dates to get longer shelf life).

Hi Doug, I've recently been contacted by Kobayashi san, and will meet him sometime in the near future hopefully. When I do, I'll get a copy of Hayakawa off him and have some of my Japanese friends read it and see how the stuff comes out in translation. Weird, small world to have been one of the editors on "Headline Trick's" American appearance, and then get to meet the translator in Japan too. I'm excited.

Chris, give him my regards. I'm also interested in how the interview they're running with the story comes across in Japanese.

Montmorency, I'm glad to hear this. And thanks.

To see the cover of the Hayakawa's SF that contains my story "the Headline Trick."

It pays to have a mother-in-law in Tokyo.)
