Der Baader-Meinhof-Komplex by Stefan Aust.

A bit dated but well worth reading as it gives an idea what the political climate of the early 1970s was, especially in Berlin.

It also goes to show how little has changed since...

Some of you may know I'm a SF novelist (published since 1996), so I thought you might like to know my new novel Beautiful Intelligence will be published worldwide on 1 July. You can get it as a paperback, or in e-formats: .epub, .mobi

Deep Distance, the book about Manuel Göttsching.

Not sure what to make of it -- much of the Information seems to be recycled from other sources, there is very little new info after all, very little anecdotes which would make the book a tad easier to read, and I for one do not bother to read other people's reviews of albums. Also, I would leave tech-talk to competent people. All in all, the author obviously is no professional writer -- he does write and as a librarian he certainly does know how to arrange words in meaningful ways, but the tone is rather dry and not overtly entertaining or inviting -- it reminds me of some scientific literature I had to make my way through while at university.

Apart from that, it's not overly expensive and would nicely accompany Lüül's own biography as well as the (eventually to be released) Froese biography.

I wonder whether Harald Grosskopf's biography will ever be released.

Stephen

Peter Michael Hamel, Durch Musik zum Selbst

Just finished reading this old classic the other day - one of the books that had a major impact on me when starting to dabble in music. Highly recommendable (not sure if it ever was translated into any other language, though...).

The last two weeks I've been reading "Maps in a Mirror", a 5-volume compilation of stories and short novels by Orson Scott Card. Some true masterworks among them.

If you have enjoyed "Ender's game", go for the second part, "Speaker for the Dead". Great novel too.
