I just received a copy of Zoran Živković's omnibus, Novels, sent to me by the author himself. The book is seen here contemplating its place among several other august titles. Although I have already thanked him in private, this gift was a very generous one to me, especially considering how many excellent fictions are contained here. Perhaps in the future this omnibus (which is in English translation) will be published in some form in the US and/or UK markets; this is the Serbian release. Živković is one of the few authors I place pre-orders on, regardless of price, and hopefully there will be readers here who will be curious and look into buying some of his fiction, which is available in the UK from PS Publishing and in the US from Aio, Dalkey Archive, Prime Books, Night Shade Books, Wildside Press (his "The Library" serves as a bridge for the outstanding Leviathan 3 anthology), and Northwestern University Press. I usually don't list publishing information, so take this exception as a hint that his stories are available from a variety of sources and that they are well worth whatever amount of money you spend on them. How's that for high praise?
Edit: Received the second half of the shipment (strange that they didn't arrive together, since they were mailed at the same time). Here are five lovely Japanese editions (but in English translation) of several of Živković's "story suites", or sets of interconnected short stories. These are uniformly excelent and they probably fit in nicely with the books in the background.
