Das Obsidianherz (Obsidian Hearts)

by Ju Honisch 2008, Feder & Schwert ISBN 978-3-86762-028-4, FS11612, Februar 2008, 1. Edition Paperback, 816 pages (currently only available in a German version) Story: Munich 1865. A magical manuscript of ultimate destructive power has been stolen. British agent Delacroix has been sent to find it and bring it back. Two young Bavarian officers and a Scientist of the Arcane are supposed to assist him. There are, however, other and quite sinister forces at work who also strive to find the manuscript. They all covet its power to change the world into an image of their own cruel imagination. Miss Corrisande Jarrencourt, a young lady in search of a rich (and preferably gullible) husband, knows nothing of all this. She gets drawn into the adventure and finds out the hard way that the world harbours creatures whose existence she never believed in. The story follows the tradition of the classic gothic novel – with some black humour and a pinch of steam punk. The manuscript is also available in English. I hope we shall find an English publisher soon who will publish this version. available at Amazon.de! Reviews of “Das Obsidianherz”

Salzträume, Band 1 (Dreams of Salt, Vol. 1)

by Ju Honisch 2009, Feder & Schwert ISBN 978-3-86762-062-8 Oktober 2009, 1. Edition 600 pages (currently only available in a German version) The book is set in the autumn of 1865, in the lakes and caves region of the Totes Gebirge (= Dead Mountains that is actually their true name ) in Austria. Hidden in the Alps, an unscrupulous inventor and his minions are secretly building an “über”-weapon. For this they hunt the Sí or Fey – otherworldly creatures of diverse kind – to use them as magical fuel for their machine. When Charlotte actively opposes the brutish hunters of the Fey, she gets drawn into the proceedings and suddenly finds herself among those hunted. She flees into the caves with a complete stranger and to her chagrin must find out that her companion is at least as dangerous as her pursuers – and keeps a really undesirable diet. “Salzträume” (Dreams of Salt) is a follow-up novel for “Obsidian Hearts” which is set in the same universe but has its own story. The novel is the next instalment of adventures set in the 19th century and follows the tradition of the classic gothic novel – with some black humour and a pinch of steam punk. This manuscript, too, is available in English. available at Amazon.de!

Thorolf’s life is much more pleasant. He is a young artist and bohemian with interesting friends and no need to worry about anything – he thinks. But horror enters his life, and all of a sudden, nothing is as it used to be. He is different, the world no longer is as he knew it, and the girl he wanted to save has turned into a cat. Together with his roommate Ian McMullen, a student of the Arcane Arts, Thorolf has become part of a chess game between powers that go far beyond human capacity. available Amazon.de!

Der Arsch auf dem Sessel

edited by Margit Schönberger (HG) 2008, Diana TB Verlag ISBN 978-3-453352-36-0 Januar 2008, 1. Edition Paperback, 352 pages Title translation: The Ass on the Comfy Chair Stories about evil bosses Are they that dumb or do they just pretend to be? They drive big cars, wear expensive suits, spend their time in meetings and are rather unnerved for the rest of the day: bosses. Be they men or women, as soon as they have some power they transmogrify into order-bellowing drill sergeants. They suck at getting the simplest things done. Get a cuppa, make a photocopy, dial a phone number – suddenly all that is just too much. And while other people get things done for them, they cuddle with their blackberries. It’s time they got a little shaking up. These stories tell the truth about bosses. Bärbel Schäfer, Hera Lind, Evelyn Holst, Ju Honisch etc. vent their frustration in a witty and entertaining way. 15 new stories by German authors. A great present for everyone who ever wished their bosses to kingdom come. My story “90 – 60 – 90” can be found among an illustrious group of female authors: Maria Serrano, Hera Lind, Christine Grän, Susanne Luerweg, Sama al Haschasch, Daniela Pietrek, Jutta Kessler, Susanne Arndt, Ann Berg, Sabine Reichel, Edda Minck, Katja Maybach, Evelyn Holst, Renate Fabel, Bärbel Schäfer, Jana Voosen. available at Amazon.de!
