Weltreporter.net is the first network of free correspondents reporting for the German-language media. It was founded in the fall of 2004. Meanwhile there are almost fifty active global correspondents, who report day and night from over 160 countries.
Their interest in people and places, their curiosity for news and the hidden facets of the familiar was the main motive for most of them to go abroad. Each one of them had lived at her or his location for years, and all of them are part of a close and active network. Thus, the global correspondents discover the stories behind the news. The UN correspondent Marc Engelhardt (Geneva) is the chairman of the network.

Peter Wappler, better known as »Milliarden Mike« (en.: »Billion Mike«), is everything he wants to be. Or rather everything others want to see in him: a boxer and an exchange broker, a surplus item dealer, owner of a model agency and wearer of a diamonded Rolex watch, the guy who knows Ben Becker, the Klitschkos and Dariusz Michalczewski; and he is the one who spent 18 years of his life in jail in the penal institution Fuhlsbüttel for fraud and forgery, because, among other things, he sold non-existing diamonds for several millions of Euros.

Guy’s road to writing was long and winding. An economist by education, he became fed up with the dubious assumptions behind the façade of scientific rigor and switched profession to software engineering. When the intricacies of computer coding increasingly haunted his nights, he delved into a succession of stints, first building artisan carpentry, an endeavor his callous hands still bear witness to; followed by owning and operating a Blues club in NYC, a time his liver still recalls with horror; and lastly, dealing in oriental rugs, an enterprise that robbed Guy of his last strand of hair as he lost sleep over the safety of camel caravans crossing the steppe. Finally, he made a career in inventing consumer products, only to realize the destruction and folly of our modern ways. With that in mind, at the ripe old age of forty-five, he penned the opening lines of the Genostock trilogy...
