Cover Reveal: Sherlock Holmes und die Legende von Greystoke

With a tip of the hat to Rias Nuninga at the Philip José Farmer International Bibliography site, I'm pleased to reveal the cover for the new German edition of Farmer's Wold Newton novel The Adventure of the Peerless Peer. 

The new edition, Sherlock Holmes und die Legende von Greystoke (Sherlock Holmes and the Legend of Greystoke), is forthcoming in Spring 2013 from Atlantis Verlag (German version). English translation: Atlantis Verlag

I'm very happy to report that the afterword I penned for the Titan Books reissue (The Peerless Peer, June 2011) has also been translated and will be included in the German edition. The foreword is by Christian Endres and the new cover is by Mark Freier.

The book will be available in hardcover, softcover, and eBook.

The Peerless Peer in German

I'm very pleased to announce that contracts are signed and that a German translation of Philip Jose Farmer's classic Sherlock Holmes-Lord Greystoke pastiche The Peerless Peer will appear in 2012 from publisher Atlantis Verlag.

My friend Christian Endres has broken the news on his blog, and gave me the go-ahead to do so here. Christian, a big fan of Farmer and the Wold Newton Universe, was instrumental in making this happen, and this project is "his baby."

I'm pleased to note that the afterword I provided for the 2011 edition from Titan Books (which appears to be selling like hotcakes on Amazon) will also be included in the German edition.

The Game is Afoot!
