Member Since
February 2013


André Klein was born in Germany, has grown up and lived in many different locations including Thailand, Sweden and Israel. He has performed at various poetry slam events, curated an experimental television program and runs an independent publishing and online education website through which he releases both fiction and non-fiction materials.

The German language is (in)famously known for being very productive when it comes to inventing new words by simply stringing two or more existing ones together. For example, in German a vacuum cleaner is simply called “dust sucker” (Staubsauger), a kettle is a “water cooker” (Wasserkocher) and the place where our teeth are anchored is known as “tooth meat” (Zahnfleisch). Logical, isn’t it?

The Peripheral by William Gibson
“We carve history from totalities beyond our grasp. Bolt labels on the result. Handles. Then speak of the handles as though they were things in themselves.”

“Ted, der Amerikaner, macht nie seine Hausaufgaben.”
André Klein, Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin - 10 Short Stories For Beginners

“No, I don’t like work. I had rather laze about and think of all the fine things that can be done. I don’t like work – no man does – but I like what is in the work, - the chance to find yourself. Your own reality – for yourself, not for others – what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

“They all talked at once, their voices insistent and contradictory and impatient, making of unreality a possibility, then a probability, then an incontrovertible fact, as people will when their desires become words.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

“Everywhere the air had become a vibrant yellow drum. A heavy sunlight freighted the foliage of the trees. Each leaf was a shutter about to swing back and reveal a miniature sun, one window in the immense advent calendar of nature.”
J.G. Ballard, The Unlimited Dream Company

“Writing in English is like throwing mud at a wall.”
Joseph Conrad

“Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

André Klein Hi Matt,

Actually, I'm working on it right now. The paperback edition should be ready in a few days. Will leave a comment here, once it's done.

Gruß,

André

Matt Miller Hi André,

Any news on when Targarax will be available on paperback? I have a Kindle but much prefer to own/read the paperback.

Keep up the great work! :)

Matt
