From fall 2004 to spring 2005, six PERRY RHODAN trade paperbacks were published, forming one complete mini-series. The »Lemuria cycle«, conceived by author Hubert Haensel, was very well received among readers. Even ten years later it is still considered one of the highlights of all the stories set in the world of PERRY RHODAN.
From October 2015 on, these six books will also be published in English – as e-books, translated from German by the American translator Dwight R. Decker. The first volume, published on 8 October, will be »Ark of the Stars« by Frank Borsch (German title: »Die Sternenarche«). We are going to publish the remaining five volumes on a monthly basis.
Each e-book is 5.99 euros. The »Lemuria« novels can be bought from all the standard portals, such as Amazon, Science-Fiction eBooks, and iTunes. They are also going to be available from the most important shops world-wide. In addition to Amazon und Apple, Barnes & Noble as well as Kobo deserve special mention. Specifically British shops are WHSmith, Hive, and Ebooks.com; for Australia, add Angus & Robertson.

But Rhodan is not the only one to have noticed the ark. A ship of the Akons, Earth's arch enemies, has also set its sights on this galactic mystery ...«
