Babelcube woes
« on: November 25, 2018, 11:41:47 PM »
I got an email this morning saying that the Spanish edition of Nala's Story has been published to paperback. I never authorized this, and I went to check on the Babelcube site, and their server is down. Just another nail in the coffin that is Babelcube as far as I'm concerned.

Pity. I once recommended them to people looking for translations, but something happened and they went down the crap hole.
I write various flavors of speculative fiction. This is my main pen name.

Yeah, just when I was getting ready to use them. Too bad.

I still use them despite their crappiness. Come January, I'll message all the translators that had no Babelcube sales in 2017 and see if they'll release their rights back to me since they're not making any money anyway.
