Here it is!  The sum total of 2012’s amazing #germanlitmonth, #germanlatemonth and #germanevenlatermonth!  We covered all genres this year: plays, poetry, literary and all manner of genre fiction.  There was an emphasis on fairy tales culminating in a 600 km fantasy trip down the German Fairy Tale Road for a meal at a restaurant worthy of the Grimms.  And let’s not forget the invention of a mighty new author.  Can you spot him in the author index below?

I like to have special content on milestone posts and for my 750th you have all help me create a very special post indeed.  Clap yourselves on the back, take as many bows as you wish, enjoy the applause.  You deserve it!
