Book in translation

I notice that Old Man's War, one of my favorite works of science fiction, was just translated into Spanish. The Spanish title is La Vieja Guardia. That's a marvelous choice of title, in my opinion. Nice job, Ediciones Minotauro. Hopefully the Spanish edition will show up on Amazon.com or the website of a North American bookseller so I can get myself a copy without paying exorbitant shipping costs. It'd be fun to compare the translation to the original like I have with a number of other books I like and have reread in a couple tongues (Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Cien años de soledad, etc.). Maybe this summer when I have time...
