RARA-AVIS: Europolar

From: Steve Novak ( Cinefrog@comcast.net)

I wish to bring to all Rara-Avians the publishing on the internet of the first (of many) issues of a new Magazine called Europolar.

The Editorial of the first installment explains the purpose:

"e d i t o  

Europolar is a multi-lingual site for fans of European crime fiction, featuring up to date news about the crime fiction world, mainly from Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, and Spain.

It will also showcase the work of European writers and highlight topical debates and discussions - both about crime fiction and relating to wider issues of European relevance.

Its brief is to keep readers up to speed about new and exciting developments in contemporary crime fiction across a range of languages and cultures."

You can find the English page at: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/arts.sombres/polar/Templates/edito_angl.htm

Each issue has four sections: news, fiction, tribune and special files

This Magazine is multi-languages (French/English/Spanish/German) and I have had the pleasure to participate to the translation of several articles into English. There is a strong incentive to bring in more languages (Italian...) as writers and specialists from other European nations join the fold, and with the availability of translators.

The driving force behind Europolar is Claude Mespl褥 that some of you may know as a critique, erudite and above all fan of crime fiction and whose most recent accomplishment was the acclaimed and very successful Dictionnaire des litt鲡tures polici貥s (Joseph K., Nantes) in 2003. I understand that rara-avian and journalist Brad Spurgeon has interviewed him in the past for his activities for crime fiction.

Enjoy this new website that serves so well the cause of crime fiction as a thriving literary genre.
