Relancer l'Horloge: Tracking down the french magazine "Fiction"
So the all-knowing palantir of Google has revealed to me that a French SF magazine entitled Fiction: anthologie periodique de Fantasy & Science Fiction has translated "Start the Clock" as Relancer l'Horloge in their atomne 2009 issue.
The story is under a CC Noncommercial ShareAlike license, so Fiction is perfectly entitled to translate it if they're a noncommercial enterprise and note that their translation is ShareAlikeable. They might also, for all I know, be a French spinoff of F&SF, in which case I expect they can translate it commercially.
What I'd really like to get my hands on a copy of "Relancer l'Horologue". This entry started out as a how-do-I-find-these-guys bleg, but while composing it I managed to find a contact form for le moutons électriques (which are, I guess, ce que les androïdes rêvent de), and have hit them up for an issue and the French text to post. Wish me luck.
Updated: That was speedy! They have responded and are sending me a copy. They are in fact the French-language version of F&SF! I was thrown off by their very literary, upscale packaging. :-)Posted by benrosen at November 10, 2009 08:40 AM | Up to blog
