Selected Stories from Alien Dimensions Now Available in German!

 

Continuing my further exploration into market penetration for Alien Dimensions, I’ve finally got around to testing other languages. I recently heard that the biggest reading market in the world is in Germany. To this end, I’ve done a test run of some translations. I’ve chosen three stories from the soon to be discontinued Issue 2 of Alien Dimensions and hired Patrick Hackenberg to translate them for me. If you read German and want to try something different, check out the following stories now online in Germany:

Ferne Helix: Science-Fiction, Fantasy und Metaphysische Kurzgeschichten Wöchentliche Leckerbissen Ausgabe #1 (Außerirdische Dimensionen) by Aric Merchant

Das Gen-Wunder: Science-Fiction, Fantasy und Metaphysische Kurzgeschichten Wöchentliche Leckerbissen Ausgabe #2 (Außerirdische Dimensionen) by Chakra Elan

Solid State Survivor: Science-Fiction, Fantasy und Metaphysische Kurzgeschichten Wöchentliche Leckerbissen Ausgabe #3 (Außerirdische Dimensionen) by Nicky Martin

For anyone who has read the contract guide, my original plan was to release issues of Alien Dimensions in other languages at some point. This was based on the idea that AD would make enough back to allow for expenditure on translation work. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet, but I went ahead with a few anyway. Let me know what you think!
