Although it is an official BattleTech product, the subject of this article does not meet the current criteria for Canon for the BattleTech universe.
See the article's section on Canonicity for details.


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 they 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 published translations of the MWDA Novel line and also 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 original English-language novel line had been translated already.) Publication of new, original German novels by FanPro was put on hold in 2008 following licensing disagreements.

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

Note: The German title was only translated in the following list in cases where it is not a verbatim translation of the original (English) title, and for German-only publications. 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.

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

Classic BattleTech-series (2004-2006), published by FanPro[edit]

The series republished selected titles from original BattleTech series (translated and therefor canon novels previously published by Heyne Verlag), as well as new (and therefor apocryphal) original titles. The addition "Classic" was used to discriminate this series of novels from simultaneously published MechWarrior Dark Age novel series. In 2006 the license went to Ulisses Spiele, who seamlessly took over publishing the BattleTech novel series.

BattleTech-series (2006-2008), published by Ulisses Spiele[edit]

In 2006 Ulisses Spiele became license-holder for BattleTech in Germany. They kept on publishing the BattleTech novel series, exclusively with new original (and therefor apocryphal) titles. The addition "Classic" was kept for the very first publication and then dropped in favor of the new official BattleTech logo design. Together with some title from previous FanPro publications all Ulisses Spiele titles in this series were from 2013 on republished as ebook edition. The publication of this BattleTech novel series was temporarily ceased in 2008, only to be taken up again in 2011 (see below).

Between 2011 and 2018 Ulisses Spiele continued the publication of original German BattleTech novels, it had taken over from FanPro in 2006 and had discontinued in 2008. The cover design was largely kept identical to the latest titles of Ulisses Spiele in the series, with the notable exception for books 19-29 of showing the era under BattleTech-logo. All novels were published as printed book as well as ebook (beginning in 2012). Although all novels were published under a valid license, as an non-english orginal publication, they are alls considered apocryphal.
