30年ぶりの『ゴーストドラム』の新訳復刊、『ゴーストソング』『ゴーストダンス』の翻訳、この3冊で、とりあえず、スーザン・プライスの「ゴースト三部作」が完結した。なんだか、借りを返したような気がして、ほっとしていたところ、作者から、おそらく日本版の3冊が届いたのだろう、メールが、今日、届いた。

 

Dear gentlemen,

Greetings from the United Kingdom, which probably won’t be united for much longer and where the government seems to have gone crazy.

I was recently sent copies of my books, Ghost Song and Ghost Dance, in your translations, Mr. Kanehara and published by your Thousand Books, Mr. Koga.

Mr Koga, I gasped when I opened the parcel. The books are so beautiful!  Such dramatic, stylish covers. I shall be sharing them on Facebook - and thank you for making them so beautiful.

Mr Kanehara, my British publisher tells me that these translations exist because of your determination to ‘complete the series’. Thank you so much. It means a lot to know that my work is appreciated in Japan.

With a thousand thanks to a Thousand Books and their translator,

Susan Price.
