It's really good. Worth giving it a go.

I read all the novels first, before the TV show was out. There's some novellas, too. The books look huge but they are very fast reading.

The current TV show (seasons 1-3) only go as far as the first 3 books.

My one and only novel, which I have retitled Scarlet Revolution (apparently, Latin titles don't sell well according to the big shots).

Eventually, you may be able to call it whatever you like.

Isaac Asimov wrote a short story that he called 'Green Patches'. When it was published in one of the SF magazines of the time, the editor insisted on changing the name to 'Misbegotten Missionary'. When Asimov re-published the story in his own collection of short stories, he reverted to his original title (which IMO is much better).

Publishers often change titles for their local markets, anyway. 'Harry Potter & the Philospher's Stone' became 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' in America. And I was once several pages into an Alistair Maclean action thriller when I realised I'd already read it - under a different title.

Love Benny, enjoyed most of the stories, though a couple were a bit hard to understand, I have to admit. Wink

I was a few chapters into "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" when I realised I'd tried reading it several years earlier before Larsson's novels became popular. It had been originally been published under the title "Men Who Hated Women".

Started to read what is often called the first proper science fiction series in the world. It’s a pulp novel series published around 1908 (!), Der Luftpirat und sein lenkbares Luftschiff (The Air Pirate and his Dirigible Airship). The first episodes tell rather conventional adventures of a flying Robin Hood albeit enhanced by lots of sci-fi gadgets, but beginning with ep. 32, the series really takes off when Captain Mors completes his ‘world ship’ (or spaceship, as we would call it today) Meteor to roam interplanetary space.

For a long time, the series has been considered lost, but now a private collector has gained access to all issues and has started to publish a reprint edition – about 110 years after the original publication. That’s double my age!

By the way, Captain Mors is a fanatical fighter against supression and exploitation, and he sports curly hair ... sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

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?
