Creator: Michael Ende
Michael Ende (1929 - 1995) was a German fantasy writer, best known in the English-speaking world for The Neverending Story.

His other novels include Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver and its sequel, Jim Button and the Wild 13, Momo, which offers a whimsical answer to the question "Why is it, when I have all these time-saving devices, I still never have any free time?", and The Night of Wishes, a wordplayful comic novel.

He Also Did some other stuff, like translating Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark" into German.

When he was alive, many leftist critics criticized him for writing escapist and unpolitical novels. (Which is completely missing the point and utterly inaccurate. Jim Button, for example, contains many, many hidden metaphors for fascism in general and The Third Reich in particular.) note 

Works by Michael Ende with their own trope pages include:


Other works by Michael Ende provide examples of:

  • Full-Circle Revolution: Mirror in the Mirror contains a short storynote  from the point of view of a tyrant who used to be a revolutionary, while being chased through his crumbling palace by the men seeking to overthrow him.
  • Meaningful Name: Quite a few across his works.
