A new translation imprint of Wyrm Publishing

After publishing works in translation at Clarkesworld Magazine for over five years, we began to wonder if there was a way to build on that and do even more. Clarkesworld Books is the direct result of those discussions. Our aim is to publish quality science fiction translations with a special emphasis on short fiction projects: collections, anthologies, and standalone novellas.

For our debut project, we’ve decided to publish A Summer Beyond Your Reach: Stories, the first English language collection by Xia Jia. A successful Kickstarter campaign has funded the translation of these stories and a couple of related projects. Backers are currently enjoying early access to the ebook edition of her book. Copies will be available for purchase by the general public later this year.
