I was honestly tempted to title this post "Essay: Why Stock/Inventory Articles are Important" and leave the rest of the page blank but I felt that would be cheating you guys and gals. Anyway, here are some translated genre books that have been released in 2009:
Underland Press: Debuting earlier this year, Underland Press is in many ways publishing a lot of cutting-edge fiction (just look at their catalog). One of the titles they acquired was Chaos, written by the Dutch couple Escober.
Chaos by Escober
Haikasoru: An imprint that was launched this year as well, Haikasoru (a play on "High Castle") focuses on Japanese fiction. In the past few months, they've managed to publish three novels, a short story collection, and reprinted two previous releases from its parent company, Viz. (Let's not even get started with what they have lined up for 2010.)
The Lord of the Sands of Time by Issui Ogawa
All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka
Usurper of the Sun by Housuke Nojiri
ZOO by Otsuichi
PS Publishing: Right now, PS Publishing is pretty much the source for English translations of Zoran Živkovic's fiction. They also published Sébastien Doubinsky's novel and while I'm not sure if Doubinsky's book was translated from French (edit: not a translation), it's still worth a look.
