    We are nearing the time of year where the first releases for the following year would have been announced.

    Will we actually have Trek books in 2019? Or will the drought continue?

    This question cannot be answered until we know the result of the negotiations. Best to stick to the 2018 releases thread.

    Maybe I'm a little selfish in this regard, but I wouldn't mind a slight slowdown in the novel line, as I'm waaaay behind.

    I think to many of us might have said that to many times. We got our wish x1000.

    That typically isn't until April or so.

    The real question is: is it too early to start the "2020 Releases" thread?

    The negotiations take longer than the Germans take to form a government.
    Hopefully there will be releases 2019...... Time for catching up on things for me and for reading the next Voyager novels.

    And that's a joke only Germans can really appreciate in all its sadness. :)

    Doesn't Belgium have you beaten in that regard though?

    I hope the people here all over the board seize the chance to read the Prometheus novels if they haven't done it already. Something to bridge the novel-less gap.
    As to the government thing ... my professional future depends on it.... like that of so many colleagues. :sigh:

    Well, unless you read German (I took two years of high school German; I remember just enough that I'm apparently the only person at the International Printing Museum who can pronounce Ottmar Mergenthaler's name properly), it's still "Prometheus novel," not "novels," at least for a few more months. (And I wouldn't have minded waiting a whole extra month for the first one, if it meant fewer grammatical errors in the translation.)

    I completely forgot the fact that you have to wait for the translations of the other two Prometheus novels.
    As to errors.... The first translations of the German Vanguard novels were full of errors, too. As were the German Titan novels. Cross Cult luckily improved the editing....

    As I recall, there were only a few that were of the "The vodka is strong, but the meat is rotten" magnitude.

    I remember spotting a few errors as well, but they were small, such as forgetting a ‘to’. So instead of the sentence reading “He walked to the door”, it read “He walked the door”.
