My fiction…in Arabic?

Yes, the inevitable has happened. One of my short stories is now available in Arabic.

I just found this out last night when trawling through some data. It seems my story “System Reboot” first published in English in Nature has been published in the Middle-Eastern edition of Nature and given a translation into Arabic.

Which is pretty cool. That’s one more box I can tick on my achievement list I suppose.

Of course despite actually being an Arab I can’t actually read a single word, or speak it for that matter. So I’m going to live with bringing shame to my ancestors and be content that some oil sheik with a taste for science fiction is reading my work right now. Seems fine to be.

Oh, you can find the story here. Good luck reading it.
