I am overjoy'd to finally have had one of my wee tales translated into French! I have had, for many a strange aeon, a love affair with French literature--although I cannot read or speak ye language, and it has always been a wish to see my work translated for a French journal or anthology. What is especially wondrous about seeing this wee story thus translated is that it contains one of my sonnets--and so I now have a sonnet of mine own composition translated in ye language of Baudelaire!!!!! Oh, honey--this is exquisite. My deep thanx to Adam Joffrain for publishing ye tale in his new journal, Nightgaunt, and for his translation.
