Best places for booksellers
Part 2 of 2. Fantasy has been dominated by English language books - from LotR to Game of Thrones, you could be forgiven to thinking fantasy was some medieval other place in northern Europe. In this episode of Mythmakers Julia Golding talks to Daniel Seton, commissioning editor at the very interesting publishing house, Pushkin Press, winner of the Independent Publisher of the Year 2022 in the UK, who have a remit to bring the best books from other languages into English. This includes a lot of fantasy, particularly for children, making classics from countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, Finland, and Japan accessible for new audiences. What are the best books Daniel has read from other countries - we get lots of recommendations so bring a pencil! Can you discern different dominant flavours from different origins? We also meet mermaids and gorillas - so there is something for everyone! If you want to find out more about Pushkin Press, you can visit https://pushkinpress.com
