In my younger days, I used to get totally jazzed up anticipating the next release of my favorite groups (Beatles, Stones), directors (Bergman, Altman, Kubrick) and authors (Mailer, Vidal). These examples will give you some idea of how long ago "my younger days" were! This kind of anticipation doesn't happen so much these days.

Until I read Ice by Russian author Vladimir Sorokin and learned that it was the middle part of a trilogy, with the two bookends yet to be translated. Ice is a startling book, by any measure, as much for its construction as for its content, which roams the fringes of science fiction, while partaking of multiple genres.

Now, NYRB is advertising The Ice Trilogy for publication on March 11, 2011 -- and I feel that old surge of excitement.

Wow! Thanks, NYRB.
