Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Hi all,

having read these, as Joe kindly sent them to me as he translated them, I can say that they all these Ewers stories are as odd, strange (and good!) as his other works.

Half of them are newly translated and thus only available in this book.

And it wont break the bank to purchase it.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

I recieved a copy of Hanns Heinz Ewers Volume II that had problems with the printer at Lulu. It seemed as if the gutter had problems. I didn't even know that it could print a gutter wrong. The book is still readable.

I've reset things and hope it was only a one time glitch. If anyone receives a damaged book please email me with your mailing address and I will send you a different copy.

This was a printing problem and nothing that I could do about. The book was still readable but that is not the way I sell them. If you receive one of these email me at:

joebandel@hotmail.com

Very sorry about this.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

I'm really embarassed that despite being german, I've never heard of Ewers before. But then, many Germans have never heard of Julius Bahnsen or Philip Mainländer either, let alone read any of their works.
Another good book I can recommend to german speaking people is 'Nichts - Abschied vom Sein [Nothing - Farewell to Existance] by Ludger Lütkehaus. It deals with both Mainländer and Bahnsen, and of course, Schopenhauer and gives a philosophical and literary History of Nihilism. Oddly, it glosses mostly over Heidegger ["Nothing noths"] and there is no Scientific view of 'Nothing' given, as for example, in Brian Greenes books. And as far as i know , there is no english translation yet.

Hope is a lack of information.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Two new Ewers collections published this year:

Mein Begräbnis und andere Grotesken, 2014
Die chinesische Kreuzigung und andere Schauergeschichten, 2014

Also, a third hardback collection is due out next week (from the prestigious Die Andere Bibliothek Verlag)

Lustmord einer Schildkröte und weitere Erzählungen, 2014.

It seems that Ewers is finally being rediscovered in Germany after almost 100 years of oblivion.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Unfortunately, I've only ever read one story by Ewers-- "The Spider", and thought it was utterly fantastic. Simple and entertaining yet still managed to be both suspenseful and mind-bending.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

All three versions of The Student of Prague are available online. I recently watched the restored original from 1913:


The heights reached by German Expressionism are still a decade away, but HHE's film offers at least two sequences which are as perennially iconic as anything ever filmed: Balduin's reflection walking out of the mirror in the first act and Balduin playing cards with his doppelgänger in the final one.

Though I reread The Spider prompted by this thread, it was my discovery of HHE's essay on Poe which solidified my admiration for the man. Though 'essay' is perhaps not the right word for this peculiar text. I like to think of it as a love letter addressed to a Genius by its Proximate. Ewers combines numerous styles and narratives and the piece is, at the same time, travelogue, monograph, cultural meditation and exegesis. In a way, it reminds me of Stefan Zweig's biographical essay on Nietzsche, but Ewers's hymnography of Poe is even more earnest and unguarded.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Its been a long time coming and finally its done! The complete uncensored Vampire book is in John Smith’s capable hands at Sidereal Press. In the meantime I’ve made it available as an ebook through Kindle at Amazon.com. Each country has its own version so go to your Amazon store and check it out. Here are a couple links just to try it out:









This has been a labor of love and I must say that it is certainly worth the wait! There have been over 150 pages added that were not in the John Day edition so you might not recognize the story when you read it.

There is a special promotion that ends Saturday where it can be downloaded for free as a Kindle book.

I've also made another book available till Friday, "Radical Satanism: The Tantric Path of Divine Counterparts"
