We've seen some collections of science fiction from non-U.S. writers recently, and Japanese SF in translation is making waves in the U.S. But chances are, there's never been a book quite as international as the one the German publishing house Saphir im Stahl (Sapphire and Steel) is planning — they want to put out a book of 80 stories, each from a different country. Yes, like Around the World in 80 Days, except this time it's around the world in 80 stories. More details over at Europa SF.
