Hiya --

    An Italian journalist has done an interview of me, now up on the web 
in the original English and the Italian translation.



He also writes:  "If you take a look to the second site, you'll see that 
main page is temporarily occupied by your
original interview in English. This portal will soon be organised as a 
true mirror of the Italian one,
I mean in the graphic way. Interviews and articles will though be original.
Next days your interview will also be published by the site 
which is the first Italian web resource for science fiction. ...



     By which I gather this stuff will shift around and be replaced by 
newer articles in due course.

    The Web is really cracking the information and language barriers 
between countries; my foreign publishing used always to be rather a 
blank to me.  I would get an offer and eventually a contract through my 
agent, sign it, and some years later author's copies of the books in 
question might or might not show up, and that was it.   Now I not only 
get e-mail from English-savvy foreign fans, but I get a peek at the 
publishers as well through their websites -- I'm thinking of the French 
comics site someone spotted for me the other day, ferex, which will 
eventually be doing the  _The Warrior's Apprentice_ graphic novelization:


    Now, instead of just being a mysterious or daunting name on a 
contract, the company has a whole personality.

    Ta, L.
