Out Now! SAVAGE TO SAINT, THE KARL MAY STORY, first English Karl May Biography

Dear Friends of Karl May

"Joy of the heart! Jubilation of the soul! We have seen them, face to face…" (Carl Zuckmayer, 1926)

Savage To Saint by Marlies Bugmann
Available NOW at Amazon.com

The Karl May Story is a micro biography with emphasis on May’s Wild West adventure stories and focus on the figure of Winnetou. It is the spiritual journey of Saxony’s Hakawati—a Karl May work interpretation. Savage To Saint, The Karl May Story includes: Winnetou (1878), A Blizzard, The Rose of Shiraz, The Fable Of Sitara, and excerpts from many of Karl May's key novels, essays, stories for youth, speech notes, stage play, as well as May's first and last literary works.


Coming August / September: Inn-Nu-Woh To Merhameh, a collection of short stories by Karl May -- from the freezing Arctic Circle to the tropical South Seas; from his home, the Villa Shatterhand, to Ardistan, a mythical place in the Orient. Inn-Nu-Woh To Merhameh is the companion book to Savage To Saint.

2008 is an exciting year for Karl May - not only is the first English biography of the author now available, but the first translation of the complete, unabriged version of the Winnetou trilogy, created entirely by the same translator, is now in the last stages of editing and will also be published during the coming months.

During the translation work for Winnetou III, the first half, based on 'Deadly Dust', brought to light some amazing links to the history of the 'Wild West': the connection to Josiah Gregg (detailed on http://www.karl-may-friends.net); and California with Captain John C. Fremont; 'Mountain Joe' Doblondy; Joaquin Miller, 'Poet of the Sierras'; the Sydney Coves, and the San Francisco Hounds, among others. It has been a joy for me to create this trilogy as it became truly evident how much Karl May endeavoured to create 'authentic accounts' of exotic lands.

Because of intensive translation and editing work for Winnetou I and Winnetou III, the publishing of The Inca's Legacy has been rescheduled to 2009. All three South America adventures, including El Sendador I, and El Sendador II will become available during 2009.
