The future ends … NOW!

After internationally acclaimed Star Trek novels and bestsellers with Perry Rhodan, the well-known writer and thoroughbred geek Christian Humberg (“Geek Pray Love”, “Star Trek Prometheus”) now presents his new breathtaking SF saga. Exclusively for FedCon he and editor Anika Klüver present the official premiere reading from “Die zweite Erde”!

In six exciting novels, which will be published this summer by the renowned Cologne publisher Lübbe (and as an audio book by Lübbe Audio), Humberg takes his SF readers into a gloomy future: In order to ensure the survival of their species, mankind leaves the Earth, which has been irreparably destroyed after generations of environmental pollution, and searches for a second home in space. But mysterious processes sabotage the “Mission Genesis”, which was started in such an idealistic way. Will the settlers be able to put down new roots in the depths of space?

Christian Humberg and editor Anika Klüver report on the genesis of the novels, read selected scenes and answer questions from the audience in their usual humorous way. In addition, of course, they are also available for signing requests.

Lecturer: Christian Humberg
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
