Der Preis der Sterne: Die Kommandantin
Posted by Jim Macdonald at 06:33 AM * 9 comments

Zwischen den Sternen warten Freiheit, Abenteuer - und Gefahr

Beka will möglichst wenig mit ihrer Mutter, der Regentin der halben Galaxis, zu tun haben, sondern lieber eine einfache Raumpilotin sein. Doch nach der Ermordung ihrer Mutter bleibt Beka kaum eine Wahl. Sie muss die Assassinen finden und deren Hintermänner stellen. Doch wer Mördern nachspürt, gerät bald selbst in deren Fadenkreuz …

Coming out on my father's birthday? Excellent - I have difficulty finding presents for him, but I think he'd like this...

Isn't that the cover art from Elizabeth Moon's _Trading in Danger_?

#3 ::: James D. Macdonald ::: (view all by) ::: May 21, 2011, 10:08 AM:

Yes, that is the cover from Trading In Danger by Elizabeth Moon being recycled.

This might end up being just the thing to refresh my reading knowledge of German. (I'm more likely to work at if if the content is interesting.)

When good books are translated, the translator matters a great deal, so here's a shout-out to my colleague Wolfgang Thon, who is recorded as having translated the book from American (Aus dem Amerikanischen) which is both amusing and accurate.

Why does this matter to me enough to come out of a long-term lurk? I can boil down the multitude of reasons into a single project, where I had the pleasure of going over a translation of Good Omens and putting all the jokes back in, because the combination of translator/publisher combo had managed to take all of them out, an error that was caught by a last revisor who panicked, then called me in for a labor of love on behalf of one of my favorite books, evah.

Translators matter. Literary translators, especially.

Yes, and when is the series going to become available in English again? I had to exert some effort to pick the Magewars series up (a great stroke of luck and a lot of rummaging at a large used book sale), but would have preferred buying it new, electronically.

Hört sich ja fantastisch an! Muss ich demnächst lesen.
