Does anybody know of any English translations of Manfred Langrenus's books? I have read Empire on the Moon (subject of this story-identification question) translated into Croatian a long time ago, now I would like to find the translation of the sequel Im Banne des Alpha Centauri, preferably in English. Thank you!


The Internet Speculative Fiction Database does not show any translations of Reich im Mond or Im Banne des Alpha Centauri by Manfred Langrenus (pseudonym of Friedrich Hecht). This does not necessarily mean that no English translations exist; the ISFDB doesn't know everything.


Looking at the entries of Reich im Mond and Im Banne des Alpha Centauri at http://www.sf-leihbuch.de, the first one lists the translation into Croatian, while the second one list no translations at all.

I see this as a strong indication that there are no translations in English.

  • Yes... that was my conclusion also. Google translate is a pain...

    Well, I will try translation into English from Google translation, when time permits, I think it will be worth it (at least for nostalgics like me...)
