New Barefoot Gen volumes

Last Gasp has been publishing the new translation of Barefoot Gen. Yesterday I picked up the two latest volumes, 5 ands 6, at their booth at WonderCon in San Francisco.

These two volumes have never before been translated into English. There will be ten volumes in all when the series is over.

It will be a little while before they hit stores so dig out your copies of volumes 1-4 and re-read them, then get the newer ones.

I have it in Esperanto.

All ten volumes?

The whole thing is also available in Russian.

It is just one book, so unless the volumes are small I don't think I could have all ten.

Looking at the brief descriptions on wikipedia, I'd say I have a translation of just the first volume.

Each volume is about 1/2 an inch thick. There were several translations of the first few volumes. I'm glad we will finally get the rest in English, of course the author could continue to write this saga.
