Hola. The Green Comet trilogy might be getting a Spanish translation. If it works out, we should see it next spring. David, at Artifacs Libros, has contacted me through the Green Comet website and asked my permission to undertake the project. Of course, he doesn’t need permission since the books are licensed Creative Commons, but he was nice enough to ask anyway.
This is what David has said about the Spanish titles for the books:
Green Comet = Cometa Verde
Parasite Puppeteers = Titiriteros Parásitos
The Francesians = Los Francesianos
I assume this word “Francesians” is after the character name “Frances”, so I’m adopting here the same Spanish relation.
David has already translated other works, and you can see them on his website if you’re interested. His stated reason for doing this work is to make the titles available to his fellow Spanish speakers, when they otherwise might not be. In his words:
Well, because I’m fond of reading and writing Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Fiction and I’m having fun doing this website… and because many of these works would probably remain unknown for the panhispanic community (which wouldn’t or can’t read English), otherwise.
He’s always on the lookout for more good CC licensed novels, so if you know of any, let him know. Or tell me and I’ll pass it on.
