Czech On Stranger Tides Published

Posted in: New Editions, On Stranger Tides, Powers News

Martin Šust, editor at Laser Books in the Czech Republic has kindly sent in this image of the cover of his brand new Czech edition of On Stranger Tides, which as you can see, uses James Gurney's original cover art from the 1987 Ace first edition.

This new edition, the first appearance of this novel in the Czech Republic will be released on Monday 29th of October. A small format paperback edition, the Czech title is Plout na vlnách podivna, the translation by Jiří Engliš and it will be priced at 249 Kč. Not sure about the ISBN for now, but I've got a copy on the way (thanks Martin!) and will add all the details to the On Stranger Tides page in due course.
Martin also hinted of a possible Czech edition of The Stress of Her Regard being in the pipeline and confirmed that there is deal on the table with another Czech publishing house, Triton (anyone know of a web site for them?) for a forthcoming Czech translation of Three Days to Never.

Ironically there look to be far more Powers books in print over there in Czech Republic than there are here in the UK! Publishers take note.

Thanks Rip. A quick search of this site does not bring up any details of the Czech edition of Three Days to Never, but thanks for the URL. I'll check back in due course and if and when the info appears, I'll post it on the site.

Thanks Martin – you folks at Laser are doing great work bringing Tim's fiction to a whole new generation of Czech readers. FYI, That link you added is currently giving a 404 Not Found error.
