Your stop for all your German folklore needs!

Sunken Castles, Evil Poodles is an ongoing project for translating old German folklore tales into English. All translations are released under a Creative Commons Zero license, and thus can be freely copied and reused for commercial and non-commercial purposes alike, without any restrictions. The translations are published in several ways:

  • A Patreon campaign that releases new translations on a weekly basis. Higher-level supporters can access a “Master Volume” in both PDF and EPUB formats that collects all translations published so far, or even make suggestions on what folklore topics I should research and translate next.
  • An open-ended series of books published in both paperback and ebook formats.

If you like my work but don’t want to commit to the regular payments of subscribing to my Patreon campaign, you can also support me via Ko-Fi. Supporters who donate at least €2 will be sent a download link for a random translation otherwise only available for my Patreon supporters!

Finally, if you subscribe to my newsletter, you will not only get a free copy of the ebook version of my first book, but also new translations of German folklore tales every month!
