One thought on “SFF on Best Translated Book Award 2018 Shortlist

  1. I’m glad to see these awards getting some traction; I remember when they first started up they were pretty much ignored. Open Letter/Three Percent/Chad Post were very important in launching my career as a critic/reviewer, so it’s always nice to see their projects get some traction.
