FedCon 28 | Vortrag | Perry Rhodan - World's greatest SF-Series

In this presentation, Robert Corvus – one of the “guest authors” of the series – tells us about the Perry Rhodan phenomenon.

From 1961 up to today, more than 3000 episodes of Perry Rhodan have been published, each containing the equivalent of about 100 pocket book pages. This makes the series the longest continuous story of the world. And this is the main series only – there have been several spin-offs over the decades, the most successful climbing up to 850 episodes. There is a movie, there are comic books, hard covers, audio books, merachandise … Today, Perry Rhodan is published not only in the German speaking markets, but also in Brazil, Japan, and other countries. All in all, more than 2,000,000,000 copies of Perry Rhodan have been sold worldwide.

And what is this story about?

Everything you can dream of in science fiction: aliens, robots, higher beings, artificial intelligences, the wonders not only of the universe, but of the multiverse, time travel … In short: Perry Rhodan is about the way humankind walks to find its place amongst the stars. Let Robert Corvus tell you all about it!

With Robert Corvus we welcome one of the most successful fantasy authors of Germany at FedCon. Currently, The Imago Project is the sequel to his science fiction novel Fire of Void. He also writes for the biggest science fiction series in the world: Perry Rhodan. Together with Bernhard Hennen adapts Robert one of the roleplaying basic adventure campaigns The Black Eye, Die Phileasson-Saga, as a twelve-part novel series. Both the fourth and fifth volumes were on the Spiegel bestseller list. Independent fantasy titles such as Die Schwertfeuer-Saga and Berg der Macht were published by Piper Verlag.

Robert has been a full-time writer since 2013. Before that, writing was a hobby and sideline for 25 years. During this time, novels were published under his pseudonym Bernard Craw in the universes of BattleTech and The Black Eye.

Robert Corvus was a soldier, management consultant and project manager in international corporations. He travelled around the world with his backpack, made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela and taught karate. After working in Münster and Sindelfingen, he now lives in Cologne.
