WWB Jan. 2008

The new issue of Words Without Borders is up, the first of 2008 and one of the best things you’ll read for free:

A little snapshot from the larger Bolaño book, Nazi Literature in the Americas (due out in February) is included, reason enough to stand up and salute this online Literature in Translation journal. Reason number two: I work there. Bolaño and I at last share some (cyber) air. Reason number three: the main page graphics are very cool this issue. So tempting.

Much appreciation would be given to all who go there and boost the hits. Us lowly assistant editors have to do our part, even if it is shilling on blogs, which are shill pages anyway and nearly useless otherwise. (Then again, is it a shill if you admit your affiliation?)
