Welcome to the website of Ju Honisch. I write novels, short stories, poems and songs in both English and German.

I have never liked or indeed strictly adhered to sub-genre definitions, but for what it’s worth here is a list of my publications  by genre.

Historical Fantasy / Steampunk (English versions)

  • Obsidian Secrets – The German version won the German Fantasy Award (Deutscher Phantastik Preis – comparable to HUGO) in 2009
  • Dreams of Salt Vol. 1
  • Dreams of Salt Vol. 2
  • Beyond the Merry-Go-Round – reached the final ballot of the German Fantasy Award (Deutscher Phantastik Preis)
  • Wings of Stone – won the „Seraph“, the literary award given out by the Phantastische Akademie e.V. as „Best Novel“ in 2014. The book will be published in English in 2022.

In English, the volumes are part of the Steam Age Quest series. Another book in this series is currently in the making.

I like exitement and thrill. I love black humour. And what I like is what you get.
