Pavol Hvizdos, a Slovak speaker, has translated three of my books into Slovakian — Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, and Overclocked. The translations are Creative Commons licensed for your remixing and sharing pleasure.

I can’t tell you how awesomely cool it is to have readers spontaneously undertake major translation projects just for the fun of it. I believe that sharing my books under CC licenses inspires my readers to promote them, and this is the proof that it works. w00t!

    Hi Cory, thanks so much for reading this book for us! It’s a real classic, and I look forward to hearing you read it out over the coming months.

    I was also wondering why your coming to China, and what part your coming to? I’m currently living in Wuhan, but do a bit of travel, and It would be my honor to buy you a drink if your about.

    From China with love… Doesn’t have the same ring as from Russia, does it?

    Heh, i guess it’s “Slovak language” rather than “Slovakian”
