"The Red Bird" flies again -- in Spain
My Japanese martial arts romance epic fantasy (now there's an underappreciated sub-genre), "The Red Bird," will appear in the Catalan language magazine, Catarsi, in their 9th issue next month. Check out the very cool cover for the issue, inspired by my story. And if you're wondering:
"Catalan is a Romance language named for its origins in the historical region of Catalonia in the northeastern part of the Iberian Peninsula and adjoining parts of what is now France. It is a co-official language of the Spanish autonomous communities of Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, and the Valencian Community, where it is known as Valencian. It also has semi-official status in the city of Alghero (where the Algherese dialect is spoken) on the Italian island of Sardinia. It is also spoken with no official recognition in the autonomous communities of Aragon (in La Franja) and Murcia (in Carche) in Spain, and in the historic Roussillon region of southern France."

"The Red Bird" first appeared in the Canadian magazine, On Spec, in 2001. You can read reviews of the story and pick up a copy of the story as an ebook at my store here. And, assuming you can read Catalan, you can also check out excerpts and illustrations from the issue at the Catarsi site.
