The big news right now is the upcoming return of Perry Rhodan. Yes, Verlagsunion Pabel-Moewig has agreed to let us, Vector Enterprises, bring back Perry Rhodan to the North American market. We are starting with #1800 of the German run, which is a recent issue. Number 1800 is titled TIME LAPSE and is written by Robert Feldhoff. The English version will feature a the first half of the series summary and a Lexicon to help bring readers up to speed. But you can read the entire Series Summary right here, and check out the FAQ for information about the new characters.
The biggest Rhodan event took place at Worldcon in San Antonio during Labor Day weekend, 1997. We promoted the return of Rhodan in a booth with copies of TIME LAPSE, consumer products, artwork, and demos of upcoming CD ROM games. There was programming by Eckhard Schwettman, Marketing Director at VPM, series Editor in Chief Klaus N. Frick, and author Robert Feldhoff. And our parties were a blast.
Fans of the older material, don't worry: As soon as the market is established, we are planning to do a second edition of the older series. Some people out there must still be wondering what happened with the Posbis...
Take a look at the cover, introduction, and second chapter of Perry Rhodan Number 1800, which is the first issue in the restart of Perry Rhodan in North America. (296K).
Go to Chris Franke's Page. This former member of Tangerine Dream has done a Perry Rhodan Opera called "Pax Terra." There are downloadable samples. The Opera is now completed and can be ordered through SonicImages. Actually this is not quite an "upcoming" item any longer as it is now available. Order Pax Terra through Chris Franke's SonicImages Homepage. Tell them John Foyt sent you.
