Hello Readers (from places other than the U.S. and U.K.)


Once in a while, I check my audience statistics to see where people who read this blog are from.  The usual four are always high on the list (U.S., U.K., Canada, and Germany), but sometimes there are a few new additions that make me giddy.  Don’t get me wrong:  I love all you Americans, Brits, Canadians and Germans!  You’re truly wonderful and I thank you for reading.  But sometimes it’s wonderful to see people from elsewhere reading this weird project of mine.

With that in mind, I would like to say a hearty American hello to all the readers from the following countries:

  • The Netherlands
  • Brazil
  • Russia
  • Australia
  • India
  • France
  • The Philippines
  • Hong Kong
  • Thailand
Hello!  Feel free to come out of the shadows and introduce yourselves!

  1. Aisha: Hello!

    A question for you: do you know of any genre novels (SF/F-ish, broadly defined) by Indian authors coming out (in English)? I'm always interested in expanding my horizons by reading SF/F by writers from elsewhere :).

  2. A few Indian auithors off the top of my head: Samit Basu (Turbulence was out in India last year and is out in the UK in 2012, and all his earlier stuff is also SFFish), Vandana Singh (there's a collection of her short stories that's probably available online), Anil Menon (particularly his 2009 -I think- YA novel, The Beast With Nine Billion Feet), Payal Dhar, Kuzhali Manickavel(so far short stories only). There's a collection of speculative Ramayana-themed stories coming out next year edited by Menon and Singh – I know about it because I'm in it, so it's probably inappropriate for me to tell you how good the authors in it are. 🙂

    Will that do to start with?
