Dear Mr. Bear,
I would love for my daughter to read "Songs of Earth and Power". So much more interesting than Harry Potter. She is Russian, hence the question: is there a translation or I have to do it myself?
By any chance, has anybody bought the rights? Is there any hope to see it on screen sometime in the future?
Best regards and thank you for your work. It's a great and intelligent escape.

Many thanks, Vitaly! To the best of my knowledge, there's never been a Russian-language edition of SONGS. There's an edition of CITY AT THE END OF TIME in the works, so perhaps we can interest the publisher in another, if a few letters are written?
....I guess the 'fantasy' bug has passed some. At least I don't recall seeing anything recently. But this book I think is ripe for it, and would top them all, as Vitaly mentions "an intelligent read". The first quarter or so (Michael's life stuff) would probly have to be hurried along or something, though.
