Wesleyan University Press publications have received awards and accolades this summer.

Three Science Fiction Novellas, translated from the French by Danièle Chatelain and George Slusser, was named a 2013 Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Award finalist. The SF&F Translation Awards “reward the translation of science fiction, fantasy, and related fiction from other languages into English. They exist both to promote the fiction of non-English-speaking authors and to highlight the valuable work done by translators.”

The Connecticut League of History Organizations awarded Ella Grasso: Connecticut’s Pioneering Governor by Jon Purmont with a  2013 Award of Merit.

We Modern People: Science Fiction and the Making of Russian Modernity by Anindita Banerjee was recognized as “an erudite and thoughtful study of Soviet science fiction” by Sciencemag.org.

In addition, Pura Lopez-Colomé’s and translator Forrest Gander read poems on KCRW radio from the bilingual addition of Watchword, while reflecting on poetry and translation, intuition and abstraction, and metaphor and illness.
