Reading, Writing, Collecting Knights

What's German for "yadda yadda yadda?"

There's a brand new interview with me up on the web, for those of you who cannot get enough of hearing me sound off.

Thing is, it's in German.

I don't actually speak German, mind you, so the interview was conducted in English, but it was a German interviewer, so the translation/ voiceover is in German, and I'm not sure to what extent my own English answers remain audible. But here it is, for my German fans:



If nothing else, there's lots of cool shots of my collection of toy knights and model figures in this one.

The interview was very nice actually. I was really impressed with both the questions and that ARD would actually pick this up in the first place. From what one could hear through the translation was also as close as it gets to the original interview.

However as a german native speaker like many others I mourn the former translator of your books.

Personally I wouldnt mind much, since whenever possible i try to read books in the language they were written in,

but I got quite a few people infected with both the TV series and the books, however with the newer version of the german translation some really horrible mistakes and choices were made (for instance translating all the names word for word - sounds horrible in german). I only dare recommend the books to those anymore who will actually read them in english.

The rest i get hooked on the TV series and if they move on to the books so be it :)
