Erik is delighted to say that the number of publishers abroad who have acquired rights to publish In the Garden of Beastshas risen now to twelve, with additional sales in negotiation. The list includes Sweden, France, Korea, the Slovak Republic, and Russia. Erik wonders if they’ll all send him on book tours through their countries, a pathetically naive question to which these publishers respond only with a blank stare. Erik would like to visit Moscow in January.

The Netherlands: Kosmos
Australia/New Zealand: Scribe

Poland: Sonia Draga
United Kingdom: Transworld
