Versions and Translations

I've been very fortunate.

Sherlock Holmes in Japan was first published by HarperCollins in India in late 2013.

Poisoned Pen Press then published the book in March 2015 after some amount of restructuring. It was fascinating to see the PPP editors apply their minds and create something new.

And now, Grupo Editorial in Brasil has published the Portuguese translation of the book.

Translation must be such a complex and exhausting task. Finding the right words must be the easiest part of the process. Nuances must be the really difficult part.

I guess I no longer own the book. It has its own life and will go wherever it wishes.
