[manga] Acquiring Gundam UC novels

I have been googling searching constantly now but to no avail can I find what I am looking for. I have been looking for a place to get these light novels. I have successfully found them in chinese but I cannot read chinese, nor will I be learning it any time soon. I am starting to doubt it even exists in an english form as it is a bit old. I was hoping that you Evageeks may know where to buy things like this. I have never owned Manga or purchased it, so this is all new to me. There are a bunch of scans online and some look to be in english but I really wanted to purchase them.

This is what I found so far.

First book in Chinese >.<

Wikipedia page with the book information

Help appreciated.

Also, I dread making new threads in fear that it could have gone in an existing thread. If that is the case I guess move it.

As far as I can tell, it's never been translated into English. It's difficult enough to find scanlators interested in translating various Gundam manga titles, so an entire light novel basically has a snowball's chance in hell. Even the much shorther Gundam Sentinel is only available as an incredibly crude, borderline Babelfish translation.

I was afraid of that. I figured I wouldn't find it in english but I had hoped for some miracle. Thanks.

I don't even know where to find them to buy and import. I don't think they've been translated as Dr.Nick said, maybe with the rising popularity surrounding Gundam UC, they will get translated Stateside... one can hope

Don't even bother: I had a friend of mine translate them and their made of total fail. Seriously, what happens to Marida in the end is a completely slap in the face to any real abuse victim.
