If you’ve never heard of Perry Rhodan, check him out on Wikipedia. In Germany, he’s like Star Trek and Star Wars all rolled up in one– hugely popular. Back in the 70s, there were English translations of the first hundred or so Perry Rhodan adventures (out of nearly 3,000), and I was really into them. I remember taking a cross-country trip with my family and stopping at every grocery store and bookstore and news rack in every town we stopped in, trying to piece together my collection.
Well, now a six-part storyline from the Perryverse has been translated and published and is available at your favorite ebook store. I haven’t read it yet, but I plan to. Ain’t nostalgia great?
