Tamil Pulp Fiction Anthology

Via Boing Boing, the story of a translation success.

Tamil language, widely spoken in the state of Tamil Nadu in south India, has a large body of pulp fiction. But it hasn’t been available to non-Tamil speakers, until now. A new publishing house, Blaft translated a bunch of these stories and published an representative anthology of the stuff. I loved the book myself when I read it (I raved about it on my blog). The book has gone on to be one of the big successes of the year in India, and they’re thinking of bringing out a sequel, and similar anthologies for pulp in other languages. “
