Let us consider what would happen if some unscrupulous person managed to trademark the name of ‘God’.
How would you feel if each time you invoked the name of God you would have to pay a royalty to the trademark owner? Could you still address your deity as freely as before? Or would you submit and never utter another prayer?

Sergiy was born in the Ukraine where he still resides to this day. Since his childhood he was enticed by book illustrations and pursued this concept by attending an art studio where he learned his skills, which include sculpture, craft and graphic design. During his studies, Sergiy worked as a part time artist. After graduating from the Foreign Languages University in 1990, he worked as a secondary school teacher of English and German, then as a leisure coach and finally – Deputy Principal until 1996. Obsessed with the idea of becoming a professional translator and after attending a course for special translators’ training, he took up the position of Senior Translator and Interpreter for the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Nine years later he decided to quit and pursue his artistic calling. Running a small translation bureau, he is now a private entrepreneur, freelance illustrator and translator. When he saw his first Winnetou movie, Sergiy started drawing Karl May characters. Getting acquainted with Karl May’s original and translated works, his drive became even stronger. To produce an illustrated book of Karl May’s adventures became increasingly imperative. The Oriental Odyssey Illustrated Adventure Series is his first mutual project with Nemsi Books. Sergiy hopes that his children are going to like these illustrated tales. He also hopes his work will be appreciated by all children around the world, to whom Karl May addressed his message of a brotherhood among men so long ago.

The Winnetou I, three Disk Audio CD collection for PC and DVD players is here! These Audio tracks can be played on most modern DVD players as well as any Personal Computer. This famous Karl May tale, narrated by Victor Epp, is filled with excitement and pathos. It highlights the plight of the Native American people and the greed of the White man, an avaricious relationship that is the basis of all ill deeds perpetrated by mankind upon its brothers. During the many hours of audio, the listener is transported to a world that is at once alien and yet enticing. It is an experience that is not easily forgotten.
