Please forget my idea above, because now I realize that threads can't have moderators, only subforums... Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey. True, but certainly no need to excuse. As neither me nor Cäsar speak Portuguese and as you're the thread opener it would be very kind of you to coordinate the thread a bit.


I have already offered my help as well. Any kind of help needed, just ask. Could be that I need sometimes a little bit of time to get back online, but it helps to send an Email. Normally I can react on this pretty quickly.

You can count on me too! I'm always available to help.

Hey there,
as this thread seems to be forgotten a bit, I just push it back to "New Entries" by answering.
Nothing here to be contributed by me, as I am soooo far behind, even all non-German readers are far ahead of me :o(

So, no offense meant by writing without saying anything, but that way the thread will maybe have a chance to wake up again?... :unschuldig:

As a fan it is normal to see similarities between your favorite sci-fi series and others. I do imagine our german-speaking colleagues have talked a lot about it.

But you, see some similarities between PR and other series that you think are very impresive?

As a big fan of the P-200 to P299 and P-300 to P 399 books, I do love the haluters (some superman/super-sayajiin indestructible alies, 3,5m tall, 3 eyed, 4 arms, very inteligent and with a very advanced tecnology people) and, you can laugh if you want, have seen similarities between them and Stitch, from Lilo and Stitch (the Disney Cartoon)!

Both have 4 arms, are imensely powerful, and have beeb created for destruction, but changed their nature to be gentle (well, more or less :) ) creatures. And all the space sequence, with the hiperspace jump generating a shockwave that disabled the bigger ship, all ressembled the Perry Rhodan universe, in a cute disney´like way...

Hi Goris, yeah, the Haluter are pretty cool, and strong! Just as the Zweitkonditionierte, Tro Khon, Aser Kin. :D

But are we speaking of the same Stitch?

His cone-shaped teeth do look like Icho Tolot's teeth, ahem, they may look like his teeth. ^_^
But where are the four arms?



A classic one are the Borg from Star Trek. There are rumors that some people from the Star Trek producing crew or technical consultants were inspired by the Posbis, the positronic-biological robots from the Perry Rhodan series. :pfeif:

Remember the crazy looking, dice-shaped Fragmentraumer of the Posbis and the chaotic looking Borg-cubes. A striking resemblance, isn't it? :D

Damned, my fault. :o(
I've to admit, I'm not very familiar with Lilo & Stitch. But a deeper picture search gave me this:

I´m not sure whether someone already came up with an idea like this over here, but maybe it would help to get more traffic here, if there would be an anouncement in the international edition.

Hello,
I'm Jerry Schneiderman, one of moderators of the English Yahoo Perry Rhodan group. I also post synopses of the issues I translate for myself. I'm currently in the 2500's (2579 to be exact). After I translate the issue for myself, I then translate the synopsis on the Perrypedia website and post the synopsis for English readers. Would anyone here be interested in my posting them here also?

Hi Jerry, welcome to the official Perry Rhodan-forum!

Of yourse we are interested! :) Such fanwork and service for the other readers are amongst the most valuable things a community can receive.

So ein fannisches Engagement gehört zu den wertvollsten Dingen die einer Community, dem Fandom passieren können. Es ist bewundernswert und in höchstem Maß lobenswert.


Thank you very much for your translations and the efforts you and your colleagues are doing for the Yahoo group. :st: Keep on rockin'!

It's very nice to read and see you here, Jerry! I'm really interested in reading your synopsis. If you want, sent me some: klaus.frick@vpm.de.

And maybe it's interesting for you: We're working to produce and publish e-books in your language. (I would prefer printed books, but ...)

Hi Klaus,
It has certainly been a while, since I talked to you last. ^_^ We met a number of years ago at one of the World Cons.

The synopses are backed up at Cedric Beust's website: http://perryrhodan.us/php/allCycles.php along with those from other Perry Rhodan fans. You can see them all there.

Meanwhile, I'll post copies of anything new here on the Forum also.

Prima Klaus,
e-books will do for starters. This is great news for our English speaking readers who have been waiting for soooo long ...

Hello Everybody:
I think it's a great idea to post the summaries here because then discussions can be started around the summaries and the reply traffic should increase. It sure would be nice to see new Perry Rhodan stories in English, even if it is only in e-book format at first.
Have a Wonderful Easter Weekend Everybody!!!

Most international visitors will miss this:
Pangalaktiker asked this question(s) also in the german Q&A section of the boards, and today Klaus answered.

To sum the answers up for you (caveat: as I understood them):

- (some) Perry Rhodan will definitely be released as english EBooks in a couple months
- the source will be one of the so called "Heyne Taschenbuchstaffeln" (cycles of 3-6 pocket books published in the 2000s by german Publisher Heyne - they are independent from the main series)
- the books are already translated, at the moment they are being edited
- after the Initial Batch of EBooks, the financial success will determine whether there will be more

I hope this is good news for all the english speaking PR-fans around the globe.

I see, you've been faster than me. First I want to thank Klaus for the answer because I can't do that in the Q&A section which is strictly one-question-one-answer. Klaus didn't tell us which series he has in mind. It may be "Andromeda" where the first volume has already been published in English. It seems nobody knows exactly why they stopped after the first volume. If there are unresolved rights issues it might be anything but "Andromeda" of course. In that case my money would be either on "Das rote Imperium" or "Der Posbi-Krieg" which are both connected to events of the early series.

Sorry about that, couldn't wait ... :o(

My guess would also be either "Andromeda" or "Der Posbi-Krieg" ("The Posbi war"), especially since the later title would certainly ring a bell among english speaking PR fans - although it takes place thousands of years later than the Posbi Cycle in the Hefte.

Andromeda? I thought that was Lemuria, the first book being Borsch's "Sternenarche" (aka Star Ark, aka Ark of the Stars).

ETA: If it were up to me I'd pick the Posbi War, too.

Ups. Was it? I think you're right. Replace any "Andromeda" in my post above by "Lemuria" then.

Here's a quick-and-dirty translation of Klaus's blog entry of today on the subject of new English publications:

“PERRY RHODAN will be released in an English-language edition in e-book format in the coming months—that much I can already say for sure. I can also already reveal the following: We will be going back to a paperback series that was published by Heyne as a self-contained cycle and that we regard as being marketable at an international level and, above all, independently.

The translations are available, they were proofread and edited a long time ago. The only reason why these e-books have not yet been released has been the final editorial work. As soon as this has been done—and theoretically this could already be the case in April 2013—we will see how the matter develops. If this turns out to be successful, then it is of course also being contemplated that more work be done in this direction."

Exciting news overall!
