Italian FLLV blank space German FLLV

FLLV is by far HST's key work. It and other works have been translated into Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Hebrew, Finnish, Dutch, Hungarian and a few others. This just goes to show how far the feeling of cultural anomie is, and what a universal writer HST and his ideals are.

The titles make me laugh: Paura E Disgusto A Las Vegas and Angst Und Schrecken in Las Vegas. Obviously not too much was lost in the translation :-) Actually, I also have no idea what the cover illustration is supposed to be on the German one. I'm assuming it's a desert, but what is that blue thing in the foreground looks like a robot? (If you think this is weird, I have a collection of Mark Twain stories and The Andromeda Strain in German. I still haven't figured out those covers.)

New on this page is this cover:

"I'm sending you a scan of the first cover of the Italian FLLV translation. Note that the title is different (Paranoia a Las Vegas). It was published in April 1978 by Arcana Editrice. The cover is by Jost Jakob.

These two Dutch covers belong to Frans L.. I like the one on the right the best - notice the one on the left is pink.
