Tanaka's grand space opera has long been known to fans outside of Japan due to the popularity of its anime adaptation, but the novels in translation are at last giving those same fans (and new readers alike) every satisfying detail with renewed clarity. Grillo will discuss the significance of this groundbreaking saga, read from his translations, and discuss the challenges of rendering such a complex work into English. An informal Q&A will follow
