Where could I buy OSC books in foreign languages. I've searched a bunch of places, but I only find people who say they're available, but never where.

Thanks.

Internet bookstores of a given country? What languages are you interested in?

I'd also be interested in any information that people have. I've been looking for the Spanish version of Ender's Game for a long time now.

I dunno...my roommie bought me a selection of OSC's books in french, but she bought them while visiting Paris. (Seeing as I was a french major AND love all his books, this was by far the coolest present I've gotten from friends going abroad!) Unfortunately, this doesn't really help here...
Seriously, though, you can try going to abebooks.com. Once there, if you run an advanced search, you can select a specific country to search under. This isn't a perfect method (you may have to hit several countries that speak different dialects of your desired language) but it works OK.
Miro, if you search for "Ender" under the title, "Card, Orson Scott" under author, and "Spain" as the country, you'll find multiple books up for sale.
Great topic, btw; I'm always interested in how many people read favorite authors of theirs in other languages.

Find out what the foreign language titles are, then do a web search for those titles.

matt - Thank you so much! [Big Grin] I went there and found a bunch of Spanish-language Card books, including EG. I've been looking for this for years.

You know, I ordered "El Juego de Ender" from a Spanish book dealer over a month ago and it still hasn't come. It was supposed to come within two weeks. The problem is to write the bookstore I have to compose something in Spanish that is actually intelligable. [Eek!]
