Perry Rhodan Lemuria 3:Exodus to The Stars by Andreas Brandhorst

You seem to be hooked! Wink
I always wondered what's it like for English speaking people to be suddenly immersed in the vast, complex Rhodanverse only a fraction of which has ever been translated into English.
I stopped reading PR ages ago but as far as I know (to be honest, I looked it up) the Lemuria books are set between issues 2199 and 2200 of the regular series and hark back to events described in the classic MdI and M87 story arcs that ran from #200 to #399.
Is it confusing to read a story with such an elaborate background setting? Or fascinating?


I've read all the books translated which was the first hundred or so as well as the Atlan series the problem is catching up on the last 2800 years or so

I used to read loads of Armada books as a kid. Different genres. Cheap and cheerful. I must have re-read the 3rd Armada Book of Fun hundreds of time...I even had to retrieve it from the bin once cos me dad had chucked it out!

I loved the Armada Ghost Books! Had them when I was about 11, and read them until they fell apart. Only two stories now stick in my memory:
1. The best - 'School for the Unspeakable' - proper scary stuff
2. The worst - 'The Man who walked Widdershins Around the Kirk' - no real peril, everything was solved by him walking the other way round again, d'oh!

Just finished reading Terry Pratchett's Guards! Guards!

I know that Darrow played Vimes in the theatre version and the cynical but essentially positive role suits him. The character does have something in common with Avon.

I was there when he was considering the part, quoted him some of the classic lines re Errol etc-and he loved them, thought about that when I saw the play in Hull.

Can you remember the lines on Errol which Darrow loved? (At least approximately?)

yes, it was the Dirty Harry pastiche, a la Clint Eastwood, when Vimes is holding Errol, 'I know what you're thinking....etc' and as a Bogart fan he loved the 'here's looking at you kid..." We also quoted Bob Newhart to each other! 'What speed were you going when yr instructor jumped from the car...?' and ' my door is always open, you know why its always open, it was stolen last week...'

There are some extracts on YouTube, plus a low quality recording of an entire production in four parts (here).

Not the same thing, but I was interested to see the old Usbourne "World of the Unknown: Ghosts" kids book got a reprint this year: Click!
