Yes, now that you say it.

Heliconia. I haven't read them either. Just heard that they were an all time low in hasty English -> Swedish translation... If it was the same person as translated Aldiss' other books that appeared in Swedish I can well believe it, though I've seen crap work elsewhere that can't possibly be sub-passed. (People keep telling me _my_ translation work is good, but _would_ they tell me otherwise? ObConlang: I've actually mused on creating a future, featureless Swenglish based on the translationese everybody reads, apparently without getting bored, in this country. B.Philip.
