Czech On Stranger Tides Published

Martin Šust, editor at Laser Books [1] in the Czech Republic has kindly sent in this image of the cover of his brand new Czech edition of On Stranger Tides [2], which as you can see, uses James Gurney [3]'s original cover art from the 1987 Ace first edition.

This new edition, the first appearance of this novel in the Czech Republic will be released on Monday 29th of October. A small format paperback edition, the Czech title is Plout na vlnách podivna, the translation by Jiří Engliš and it will be priced at 249 Kč. Not sure about the ISBN for now, but I've got a copy on the way (thanks Martin!) and will add all the details to the On Stranger Tides [2] page in due course.
Martin also hinted of a possible Czech edition of The Stress of Her Regard [4] being in the pipeline and confirmed that there is deal on the table with another Czech publishing house, Triton (anyone know of a web site for them?) for a forthcoming Czech translation of Three Days to Never [5].

Ironically there look to be far more Powers books in print over there in Czech Republic than there are here in the UK! Publishers take note.
