Liz Johnson (Rights & Co-editions Manager at Macmillan) “…is truly delighted to report a Japanese deal for COWL. This is particularly exciting news as the Japanese fiction (and particularly Sci-fi) market is incredibly difficult at the moment – so many congratulations! Hayakawa Publishing Inc. will publish in paperback within 24 months.”
Excellent stuff – that’s country number nine after the USA, Russia, Germany, France, Portugal, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Romania.
Now, my thanks to Hayato Kato who approached me to get one of my short stories (The Veteran) published in Hayakawa’s magazine. He took it upon himself to push me out there and doubtless this result is much due to him!
