This article discusses the entire German line of BattleTech novels, the majority of which were translated from novels published in English by FASA and ROC in the United States.

Overview[edit]

While FanPro produced and published the German edition of BattleTech since 1988, they were too small to handle publication of the accompanying novel line themselves with the exception of the Shrapnel anthology, an early outlier which FanPro published through their Phoenix imprint. Instead, the German BattleTech novels were published by Heyne, a major German publishing house, from 1989 onwards in a similar fashion to how ROC took over publishing the novels in the United States. Just like ROC, Heyne also published translations of the "MechWarrior" and "MechWarrior: Dark Age" spinoff lines.

Heyne published one original German BattleTech novel (Phoenix) in 2001, as well as a comprehensive softcover almanac dedicated to the BattleTech franchise as a whole (BattleTech: Die Welt des 31. Jahrhunderts).

In 2004, after having obtained the full license to what was now "Classic BattleTech", FanPro launched a new line of German BattleTech novels under the Classic BattleTech moniker. Beyond reprints of the older novel The Sword and the Dagger and the Warrior Trilogy, this novel line comprised of new, original stories instead of translating existing American novels. (At this point, the entire English-language novel line for Classic BattleTech including the MechWarrior titles had been translated already.) They also took up translations of the MWDA Novel line where Heyne had left off.

Publication of new, original German novels by FanPro was put on hold in 2008 following licensing disagreements with CGL.

In 2011 Ulisses Spiele acquired the rights and continued the novel lines from where Heyne and FanPro, respectively, had left off.

Note: Entries are sorted by the publisher's numbering, which was not necessarily the same as the order of publication.

Canonicity[edit]

German publications as such do not fall under the current definition of Canon for the BattleTech universe. Consequently, those German-only books that were not translated from an English publication but were published under a valid license can only be considered apocryphal.

MechWarrior series (1999), published by FanPro (Phoenix)[edit]

In 1999 FanPro published the first three books of original MechWarrior series under the same moniker in German. The three novels were republished in 2001 by Heyne as an omnibus edition in its BattleTech series (#50) running at the same time. The fifth and sixth MechWarrior novel (The Dying Time and Imminent Crisis) were also published by Heyne books #57 and #58 of the novel line, without any referrence on cover to the original MechWarrior series. The fourth book of MechWarrior series (Initiation to War) was never published in German.

By Blood Betrayed

New BattleTech series (2004-2008/2011-2018)[edit]

Classic BattleTech series (2004-2008), published by FanPro (Phoenix)[edit]

In 2004 FanPro begann to publish its own BattleTech novel series under its Phoenix imprint. The series republished a few selected titles from original BattleTech series, but mostly new, original titles. The addition "Classic" was used to discriminate this series of novels from the MechWarrior Dark Age novel series that was published in parallel. The logo design was changed after title 11. In 2006 FanPro's license for BattleTech expired, but FanPro continued to publish new novels under their Phoenix imprint until 2008. Ulisses continued the series when they acquired the license in 2011 and republished titles #1, #6 and #10-#18 as ebook edition.

Combined with the ebook publication of new titles, some older books (#1, #6 and #10-#18) were republished as ebook edition as well.
