Remember when I mentioned my first translation request? Well, today, on the website of the Israeli Science Fiction Society, you can read the first installment of my Wayward Time Traveler column, translated into Hebrew.

This particular piece, title, “Old School Science Fiction Flame Wars” first appeared on SF Signal. Thanks go out to John DeNardo and the folks at SF Signal for granting permission for this translation.
