Insgesamt sind bisher 2700 Hefte mit run one hundred sixty. 000 Seiten erschienen, deren Geschichten einen Zeitraum von über 3000 Jahren umfassen (Stand: Mai 2013).

Die Serie erscheint zweiwöchentlich und ist nach drei Staffeln mit je acht Taschenheften ab Heft 25 in Staffeln mit jeweils zwölf Romanen gegliedert.
Während die Perry-Rhodan-Heftromanserie von den geopolitischen Begebenheiten der realen Welt Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts ausging und die Handlung in einer nahen Zukunft beginnen ließ, geht Perry Rhodan Neo 50 Jahre später von der realen Welt des frühen 21. Jahrhunderts aus und beginnt ebenfalls in einer nahen Zukunft. So fliegt Perry Rhodan nicht im Jahre 1971 zum Mond, sondern erst 2036. Die Handlung nimmt somit aufgrund der geänderten Ausgangslage einen alternativen Verlauf. Die klassischen rationale der Serie werden ebenfalls in eine nahe Zukunft verlagert und entsprechend interpretiert. Es werden neue Figuren eingeführt und bekannte Figuren in einem neuen Licht gezeigt.

Weltcon 2011 in Mannheim wird es auch keine Überschneidungen oder Referenzen zwischen den Serien wie zu den Atlan-Serien geben. Perry Rhodan und Perry Rhodan Neo bilden jeweils einen „eigenen Kosmos“.

Example text

Wenn ich die von Doktor Lansky gesammelten Daten richtig interpretiere«, sagte Toreead in diesem Moment so ruhig, als ob nichts gewesen wäre, »kann die Projektion nur aus dem Inneren des Systems stammen. Wir müssen also nach einer Sendestation suchen. « Der Naat hatte recht. Wenn Lansky gedacht hatte, er könne den Riesen in Verlegenheit bringen, sah er sich getäuscht. Wie konnte er auch annehmen, ein erfahrener Raumfahrer wäre zu tumb, um die Ortungsdaten richtig zu lesen, und zu einfältig, um daraus stichhaltige Schlüsse zu ziehen?

Nichts«, stellte Toreead verdrießlich fest. »Wir können das Strahlungsfeld ortungstechnisch nicht durchdringen. «, fragte der Mensch in jenem halb spöttischen Tonfall, den Toreead vom ersten Augenblick an gehasst hatte. »Der Naat an sich neigt weniger zur Verrücktheit als der Mensch«, sagte er barsch. « »Nicht auszuschließen«, gab sich der Mensch indifferent. Also schön: Falls es sich um eine Täuschung handelte – was Toreead für durchaus denkbar hielt –, wusste er nicht, was das Ziel dieser Täuschung sein sollte.

Deringhouse nickte. »Hervorragend. Also fliegen wir hinein und schnappen uns alles, was uns weiterbringt. Finden heraus, wer den Sender aufgestellt hat und was dort vor sich geht. « Der Naat lachte leise. »Wir wissen nichts über die Leistung dieses bunten Schirms. « Deringhouse lachte. « Toreead schien nicht zu begreifen, worauf der Mensch hinauswollte. »Selbstverständlich! « »Erkundungsmission«, antwortete der Naat kurz. Die bucklige Scheibe schwebte über dem magentafarbenen Schutzschirm, hinter dessen leuchtender Barriere sie nur vage üppige Vegetation erkannten.
