Transcription NEWS FROM JAPAN

Professor Masahiro Nakamura of Aichi University published in January 2008
the first Japanese translation of Simms's Tales. The University of South
Carolina Press will publish his book-length treatment of Simms in late 2008.
This will be the first book on Simms published outside the US. Nakamura's
first Japanese translation of Simms's The Yemassee won a prestigious award in
Japan. Congratulations to our most prolific and celebrated Simms scholar
internationally. Nakamura will appear at the Simms Symposium in Athens (25-27) 11-13
September 2008 and we will give him a publication party —a good chance for
Simms Society members to meet, greet, and thank our diligent and devoted
Simms scholar in Japan.
