Hell Train Now Stops In Germany
The Germans, do you know them at all? Lovely literate people, smart and terribly self-deprecating. Berliners, awesomely friendly folks. I just went to Oktoberfest (in September and in Tokyo, I admit) but all those oompah-tunes and gallons of great beer and sausages (a bugger to eat with chopsticks) – what’s not to love?
And they have excellent taste in books – they must do because LUZIFER-Verlag is publishing ‘Hell Train’ with a cover that complements Graham Humphreys’ stunning illustration.
Interestingly, their edit-process was far more exacting than ours in the UK, where the editor basically looked over the top of his glasses and went, ‘Yeah, that’s alright I s’pose.’ They made some very good points about Europe during the time in which the story was set.
So yeah, Germany, jolly decent of you. Now please purchase ‘Nyctophobia’ for your readers, and good luck translating that!
