Quite frankly I have fairly little to write about (I was considering writing an analysis of Neon Genesis Evangelion as a political allegory, but I don’t know Japanese modern history/international relations well enough for that), but I hate the idea of letting a whole calendar month pass by with no updates.
So, um, I became a Fannibal thanks to my beloved friend Homoette (a.k.a. Bow-Boy from the list to the right). I absolutely love the æsthetics and the writing and I can definitely identify with Will, the semi-aspie. I do not, however, ship anyone (except the two forensic scientists who interact like an old married couple), certainly not Hannibal with anyone.
I have a Tumblr page now.
Unsurprisingly, the name I chose for myself means ‘the black cat’ in Icelandic (svarti kötturinn
), same way ‘An Cat Dubh’ means the same in Irish.
The book I translated a few months ago from Hebrew to English is coming out! I’m very giddy about this indeed. I’m not even getting paid a commission for these, as I got paid generously for the complete translation instead (though I’ll probably translate the next books), but I do think this is a worthwhile buy. (By the way, I’m particularly proud of the work I did on the poems in the book. Have a look at the English version if you get a chance...)
You can find the crowd funding page for the book here
and get an early bird copy of either version as an ebook, pre-order a paperback/hardcover edition (with or without the author’s signature), even a dinner with the author (here in Israel), or just a personal thank you note. Support the arts!
(P.S.: Bó, I didn’t forget about you. I’ll write about you soon, when the time is ripe.)
