12 modern science fiction writersThe best Russian publishers working with translation literature are Corpus (like the Editorial Office of Elena Shubina, he is part of the AST holding), ABC-Atticus and Phantom Press. The first two are relatively large, the third is very small. In the “Corps” there are books by Umberto Eco and Donna Tartt, John Le Carré and Michel Welbeck, Jonathan Franzen and Michael Cunningham. In addition, a certain amount of very good humanitarian and natural science non-fiction is published here – both domestic and translated (for example, “Someone is wrong on the Internet” by Asi Kazantseva or “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson). The ABC Atticus publishes Alice Munroe, Orhan Pamuk, Eleanor Cutton, Irwin Welch, Kate Atkinson and many other great contemporary authors, as well as excellent comics and graphic novels from classic Batman and Tintin to cult Sandman ”and“ Guardians ”. The Phantom Press publishes only a dozen books a year, but almost all of them are very good – they are Anne Tyler’s Blue Thread Spool, Abraham Vergeze’s Stone Slash, Stephen Fry’s novels, and a few other things. worthy translated books goes to EXMO, for the most part as part of the International Bestseller – Reads the World series: among them are novels by Julian Barnes, Haruki Murakami, Kazuo Ishiguro, Thomas Pincheon, John Kutzee and others. But in general, focusing on EKSMO as a brand is not worth it – they select books too unpredictably – along with real masterpieces, frank consumer goods are published, and the quality of the translations sometimes leaves much to be desired. But here you definitely need to be extremely careful with this with the products of the Mainstream and NeoClassic editions of the AST holding, the highest-grossing authors (such as George Martin, John Grisham, and especially Stephen King) often come out with such quality that it is better to immediately read in English.
