Elfenmond

Here's the German edition of The Hunter's Moon as presented in the Spring catalogue of Bertelsmann (Random House Germany). I love the look and sound of the title which means "Under the Fairy Moon". They use a special hardbacked soft cover in Germany, if that makes any sense. (It has a two-page spread but blogger won't upload two photos right now).

Na endlich, es wurde aber auch Zeit. Nachdem ich schon vor Jahren gehört hatte, daß eine deutsche Übersetzung geplant war, ist es nun soweit. Ich bin gespannt, ob die deutsche Version den gleichen Zauber hat, wie die Originalversion ihn bei mir in Irland auslöste. Viele Grüße und Dank für zauberhafte Stunden an Frau Melling! jk

Dank, Jurgen! I get the impression you are saying nice things to me in German. (But you could be calling me an eejit for all I know.)

Well, I realy don´t know what an eejit is, but You´re right - I enjoy the opportunity of reading Your books in my nativ language. I think it will be quite interessting, if it will have the same enchanting effekt as it had years ago in Ireland. Thank You for Your books and Greetings from Germany! jk
PS: As I mentioned years ago, I miss in Your bibliography my favorite book: Falling out of time. The more I´m waiting for Your new adult book.

'Eejit' is Hiberno-English for 'idiot' but it has a friendly affectionate tone attached to it. I am in the process of revamping my website and will set up a page for my adult work to include both the new and the old. Thanks again for staying in touch! I look forward to hearing what you think of the German edition. It will be available in February, 2008.

Thank You for the answer. I´ve already orderd the german version at amazon for February. I will visit Your homepage and look for Your new adult page very interestfully (does this word realy exist - I
don´t know). And I´l keep You informed about the feeling of "Elfenmond". Happy Halloween from Germany (I´m living in an area, where it has been performed by the celts 2500 years ago) jk
