SF Signal Mind Meld on International SF: Part Four

Apologies for the lack of updates this week – has it really been a week? – let’s call it rainy season blues… In any case, SF Signal have brought their mind meld feature on international SF to a close this week, including Apex Book of World SF contributor Anil Menon and a host of other writers and translators.

It’s a shame we didn’t get to see anyone talking about African fiction – certainly South Africa has plenty to offer, and one suspects there are writers in the Francophone or portuguese – and the other English-dominated countries – worth noting. We did a feature on South African writers a while back (you can click on the relevant tag to have a look) and hopefully will cover more of the continent in the coming months. Also nothing on Arabic SF, which again we looked at here. But then the problem of covering such a diverse field, with so little English translation available, is always difficult, and this has certainly been a welcome and illuminating initiative (enlivened, it must be said, by some very passionate Polish fans in the comments section!)

And just a reminder: any readers of this blog who can share some information and insight with us, on whichever country or language, please do get in touch with us – we’d love to run some more guest columns.
