Karl May Friends

Winnetou Trilogy - Travel fiction 1893

In 2006 circumstances prompted me to translate volume two of the Winnetou trilogy before any other; 'Winnetou II' was also first published under the BookSurge banner, but as was the case with "Holy Night!", CreateSpace simply wasn't quite 'me'.

I re-edited, and re-formatted the text of 'Winnetou II', adjusted the cover to fit in with the new design, which features Karl May's portrait on a rosette, and in 2008 (together with volume one and volume three, as well as all other Karl May novels I had translated by then) published its new edition on Lulu.com.

In 2008, I became the first author/translator to have translated and produced the entire unabridged Winnetou trilogy from Karl May's last authorised version of 1909; it is the first publishing of the unabridged trilogy as a homogeneous work by a single translator in English (including editing and proof reading, design and formatting, as well as cover art).

My translation of the Winnetou trilogy is now available in three editions: The trditional three-volume set in paperback; the one-volume hard cover; the unique six-volume pocket size edition. Because Karl May's Winnetou epic consists of six distinctive parts, or episodes, it is, in my opinion, eminently suited to be published in a six-part pocket design, giving Karl May fans a third format choice for May's most famous work: the WINNETOU TRILOGY.

Pocket edition.
