Show Notes:.

Note:  I mention something about English-language authors who translate from English to Chinese and sell primarily in the Chinese market. I can’t seem to find anything about that, so either I was mistaken in hearing it on Adventures in Sci Fi Publishing or it is incredibly uncommon. If you have any information that might help, please let me know. Otherwise, forget I said it.
