The Impotence of Being German

Some dude who lived hundreds of years ago decided to call us the People of Poets and Thinkers (das Volk der Dichter und Denker). Nowadays it's more like the People of risk-averse translations of English and American work. You know me. I love English. I don't have a problem with English. But I do have a problem with German publishers not publishing German authors, especially when it comes to light fiction.
