Yesterday was five centuries ago

Even if you aren't following my translation of Amadis of Gaul, Europe's first best-selling novel, you may enjoy today's special guest commentary, "Yesterday was five centuries ago," by Spanish science fiction and fantasy writer José Miguel Pallarés.

He tells how, when he was 6 years old, he found a dusty copy from 1837 in his family home in a medieval mountain town, and how it changed his life.
