In France, Be More Chill has been published by Gallimard for in their "Scripto" series of books.

In the past, the Scripto series has included books by Joyce Carol Oates and Melvin Burgess!

It took a while, but the French version of Be More Chill has been published! This French guy at my parent's office, Patrick, every time I see him, he goes, "Ned, when is your book coming out? Maison Gallimard! [the d = silent] This is one of the best publishing houses in France! Maison Gallimard!" And now he has a copy of the book. So awesome.

In Israel, Be More Chill has been published in Hebrew by Matar Publishing.

Tthis should clear things up for the person from Israel who emailed me asking if his squip would speak to him in English or Hebrew.
