Gaines’s Most Recent Translation Appears in TAEM

Jim Gaines, professor of modern foreign languages, recently contributed a translation of Alphonse Daudet’s short story, “The Ordeal of the Semillante,” to the emagazine TAEM/Eerie Digest. The story is part of Daudet’s collection, Letters From My Mill, and deals with a grisly shipwreck off the coast of Corsica in the 19th century, as remembered by the toughened crew of a customs patrol cutter. It appeared in the July edition and is still running on the opening page of the short story section of TAEM, which now reports a worldwide circulation of over 100,000 readers.
