Italian publisher Fanucci has acquired the Italian translation rights to Swan Song and Boy’s Life. Both books were previously published in Italy in 1991 and 1992. Presumably, the Fanucci editions will be new translations.

Last year, Fannuci published Il grande libro degli Zombie, a translation of Otto Penzler’s Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! anthology.

More info when it’s available, which probably won’t be until next year, at the earliest.
