Beyond Books - The Academy Awards

The Superbowl has come and gone (go Big Blue) and Jeremy Lin is hogging all the sports headlines. However, there is another important media event coming up this Sunday, February 26th - The 84th Academy Award Show hosted by Billy Crystal.  This year there are nine nominees vying for the big prize of Best Picture.  The leading contenders are Hugo, with 11 nominations, and The Artist, with 10.  While there have been some fine pictures produced this year - War Horse, Midnight in Paris, The Help, The Descendants, Moneyball, there are really only two titles that stand above the crowd.

Worlds without Borders

The First Horn by Richard Schwartz.  Last Year Was Probably a Good Year by Yamamoto Hiroshi.  And Despite All… by Juan De Dios Garduño.  Have you read any of these?  They're all best-selling, award-winning works of speculative fiction.  They're all written by well-established authors writing at the top of their game.  But... I'll bet you haven't read them.  How am I so certain?  Because none of them were written in or translated into English.*
