Congratulations to British science fiction, fantasy & horror translator Brian Stableford, who, “in recognition of the excellence of his translation work,” won the Special Award at the first Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Awards (SFFTA) presented this past weekend at the 2011 Eurocon in Stockholm. An author, editor, and historian-scholar, Stableford “has devoted much of his considerable talents and energy to an unprecedented project of literary resurrection, translating more than sixty books of proto and classic sf, horror, and fantasy by French authors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.” His translations and adaptations include:
  • The Vampires of Mars (2008) / Le Prisonnier de la Planète Mars (1908) and La Guerre des Vampires (1909) by Gustave Le Rouge
  • The Martian Epic (2008) / Les Titans du ciel (1921) and L'agonie de la Terre (1922) by Octave Joncquel & Théo Varlet
Thanks to Ian Randal Strock of SF Scope for the tip!
