Deutscher Soft-Horror: "John Sinclair Classics" (gratis bei Audible)

Hi, all!

Bei (aber vielleicht nicht bei gibt es einige “John Sinclair Classics” gratis zum Anhören.

Zum Beispiel Teil 1: “Der Anfang”
Von der Qualität des Horrors kommt das zwar nicht an einen
Stephen King heran, aber es ist dennoch unterhaltsam (in einem nostalgischen Pulp-Sinne).

Abgesehen davon ist das jedoch eine professionelle Hörspiel-Produktion!

Gute Unterhaltung


“Gute Unterhaltung” <— I see what you did there. :wink:

Some, much later, episodes are available for purchase on But it might be worth the effort to create an account.
Another place with lots of early/classic Hörspiels is Spotify.

Not free, but I can strongly recommend the series‘ by Ivar Leon Menger: Monster 1983 and Ghostbox.

Ich plädiere auf “unschuldig” im Nicht-Sinne der Anklage :slight_smile:

How does Deepl translate that nice little German sentence?
“I plead not guilty to the charge of not guilty to the charges”
<it’s absurd but I like it :-)>

“But it might be worth the effort to create an account.”
Definitely. offers a lot of stuff in German or English for free
(e.g., in the case of “John Sinclair,” the first ten episodes in German are free

  • if I remember correctly).

By the way, you can also find many of the “John Sinclair Hörspiele” on Youtube for free, e.g. on this YT channel: John Sinclair - YouTube

Personally, I rarely listen to this stuff (e.g. “John Sinclair”, “Perry Rhodan”, Karl May’s “Winnetou”, etc.) anymore because nowadays I prefer non-German audio productions with more advanced / mature topics, esp. for language learning.

However, for people who are learning German and are interested in such popular/pulp genres, it can be very entertaining as the audio productions
are often of high quality.

“Another place with lots of early/classic Hörspiels is Spotify.”
I agree.

And I think we already published a list of German radio broadcasters (i.e. Deutsche Hörfunkanstalten wie der WDR, MDR, Bayern 2, etc.) on LingQ, which offer thousands of audio books / audio dramas for free.

WDR, for example, also offers “Tatort” as an interactive audio game:

Switching back to German:
Was freie Hörspielproduktionen angeht, ist der deutschsprachige Raum (Deutschland - Austria - Schweiz) definitiv ein Paradies, insbesondere für diejenigen, die Deutsch lernen (möchten).

Nice Sunday to y’all

I know, I’m answering quite late to your post, but I stumbled upon it just today.
Monster 1983 and Ghostbox are really amazing audio plays. I can strongly recommend them. The only disadvantage for learners is that there is no transcript available.


Wow Hallo Vera,
