Literary - Books translated so far:

_ The Life of Gaugin (English / Portuguese), by Parkstone or Sirrocco. Parkstone or Sirrocco or Parkstone Press International never paid for my translation, although it was integrally published in December 2005 by a portuguese company called Lisma-Edição e Distribuição de Livros, Lda. Which means that I still own the translation copyrights.
