Обложка книги A borotva éle A borotva éle

 Автор: Jefremov Ivan


A “borotva éle” — szimbólum: azt a szinte érzékelhetetlen határt jelenti, amely a tudat és a tudatalatti között húzódik, vagyis amely a teljesen egészséges én pszichikai tengelye. Így magyarázza meg regényének címét maga a szerző, a szovjet tudományos-fantasztikus irodalom klasszikusa, aki ezúttal a legújabb biológiai kutatások és felfedezések fényében boncolgatja az ember pszichofiziológiájának időszerű kérdéseit. Csodával határos, de megtörtént esetek, valóságos jelenségek hiteles leírásával igyekszik feltárni az emberi test és lélek rejtett tartalékait, energiaforrásait.

A történések középpontjában egy titokzatos fekete korona, annak különös kisugárzása áll. Több csoport is meg akarja szerezni, hajszákat rendeznek érte. E kalandok leírásával válik a mű térben és időben több dimenziójúvá. Visszanyúl a régmúltba is, például Nagy Sándor korába, vagy az óindiai művészet kezdeteihez, hogy pontosabban megvilágítsa a tegnap, a ma, sót a holnap eseményeit. Oroszországból kiindulva, Itálián, Dél-Afrikán át a forró Indiáig és a jeges Tibetig húzódik a cselekmény fonala.

A bőven áradó események egzotikus környezetben, titokzatos templomokban, lámakolostorokban, tengerfenéken stb. játszódnak le. Szemünk előtt zajlik le egy kalandos nőszöktetés; látjuk, hogyan verekszenek meg erőművészek túlerőben lévő fogdmegekkel; megismerjük a különleges, bénító folyadékot kilövő pisztolyt.

A mű hősei sarkított jellemű, különleges képességű férfiak, hősnői egzotikus szépségű és rendkívüli sorsú nők. Tanúi vagyunk hipnózissal való csodálatos gyógyításnak, az önszuggesztió nem mindennapi eseteinek. Csak egy példa a sok közül: a tibeti önsanyargató reszpáknak melegük lesz, amikor a fagyos szélben meztelenül állva locsolgatják magukat — a vizes törülköző megszárad rajtuk!

Jefremov a tudománynak és a valóságban gyökerező fantasztikumnak olyan tájaira vezet el bennünket, amelyeken szovjet írók még nemigen jártak.

Обложка книги A Canticle For Leibowitz A Canticle For Leibowitz

 Автор: Miller Walter M

 Серия: Leibowitz


A Canticle for Leibowitz is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by American writer Walter M. Miller, Jr., first published in 1960. Based on three short stories Miller contributed to the science fiction magazine The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction; it is the only novel published by the author during his lifetime. Considered one of the classics of science fiction, it has never been out of print and has seen over 25 reprints and editions. Appealing to mainstream and genre critics and readers alike, it won the 1961 Hugo Award for best science fiction novel.

Set in a Roman Catholic monastery in the desert of the Southwestern United States after a devastating nuclear war, the story spans thousands of years as civilization rebuilds itself. The monks of the Albertian Order of Leibowitz take up the mission of preserving the surviving remnants of man's scientific knowledge until the day the outside world is again ready for it.

Inspired by the author's participation in the Allied bombing of the monastery at Monte Cassino during World War II, the novel is considered a masterpiece by literary critics. It has been compared favorably with the works of Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene, and Walker Percy, and its themes of religion, recurrence, and church versus state have generated a significant body of scholarly research. Miller's follow-up work, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman, was published posthumously in 1997. (Wikipedia)

 Автор: Strugackij Arkadij, Strugackij Boris


A Város az égbe nyúló, megmászhatatlan sima Fal és feneketlen Szakadék közé szorítva éli mindennapinak igazán nem mondható mindennapjait. Lakói — németek, amerikaiak, oroszok, japánok, kínaiak, svédek és még ki tudja, hányféle náció fiai-lányai — sokat vitatkoznak arról, vajon a Földön vagy egy másik bolygón, esetleg egy másik galaxisban vannak-e. Csak azt tudják, hogy valamennyien önként vállalták, hogy részt vesznek a Kísérletben. Csakhogy a Kísérletről sem tudnak, nem is tudhatnak semmit, hiszen ha tudnák miről van szó, az befolyásolhatná viselkedésüket, cselekedeteiket…

Reviews

If any work of fiction will earn Robert Heinlein a permanent place on the collective bookshelf, it is going to be Stranger in a Strange Land, for the impact it has made on American society. If a person has not managed to read Strangerby now, then he has at least absorbed a bit of it osmotically, for it flows throughout our cultural consciousness. Perhaps least of all, it anticipated Nancy Reagan's reliance on astrology and spawned the water bed and the neologism "grok," (Heinlein's Martian verb for a thorough understanding), though "grok" would never have taken hold, had the young rebels of the 1960s not discovered Stranger as their counterculture bible. Some went even further and formed "nests" and churches based on what they found in Stranger; perhaps the most famous instance of that is the Church of All Worlds, a pagan group who lifted its name and logo intact from the book. Stranger has also begun to be included in many canonical college reading lists, and Billy Joel saw fit to mention the title in his 1989 Top-40 hit about history, "We Didn't Start the Fire."

Stranger's fire was kindled in 1948 in a brainstorming session between Robert Heinlein and his wife, Virginia. While looking for material to fit John Campbell's title, "Gulf," Mrs. Heinlein thought it would be interesting to explore the case of a human raised by Martians. Heinlein thought that the idea would make a pretty good Lettres Perses–type novel, took some notes and filed it away for later use, finally placing the completed but abridged version with Putnam's in 1961 (an uncut edition was released in 1991).

Stranger in a Strange Land tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, orphaned progeny of the first manned expedition to Mars, who has been raised by Martians and brought back to Earth by a second human expedition. Though he is a man in his twenties, Smith looks at absolutely everything on this new planet through the ignorant eyes of a baby, and faces the job of learning how to be a human being. If the world government of Earth will let him, that is, for Smith, through a legal fluke, not only has sole survivor rights to the space drive that his mother invented, but also to the surface of Mars. In a Byzantine maneuver that makes Watergate seem minor, the government holds Smith hostage while it tries to figure out how to seize his assets. Ben Caxton, a muckraking reporter, suspects the worst and attempts to rescue Smith. The problem is, if you can't fight City Hall, how can you even begin to fight a world government?

Enter Caxton's friend, Jubal Harshaw, attorney, physician, hack writer, bon vivant, curmudgeon, anarchist. He caches Smith in Freedom Hall, his Poconos enclave, and takes on the dual chore of fighting the world federation for Smith's liberty and of educating Smith in the ways of his biological race. The youth is an apt student, a strange admixture of human infant and Martian superman, and as time goes on, he manages to win more and more people over to his own alien viewpoint. He becomes a kind of messiah–with explosive results.

Given that, I leave it to the reader to pick up Stranger in a Strange Land and revel in it. In spite of the movements and religions it has birthed, Stranger is no bible; it is a sprawling satire of human conceits, including marriage, love, sex and–most importantly–religion. Satire usually aims to inform, so if one is looking for any message in Stranger, then one take a good, long look at Heinlein's targets and think. As Heinlein himself said in a letter to an avid fan, ". . .I would never undertake to be a `Prophet,' handing out neatly packaged answers to lazy minds. [. . .] anyone who takes that book as answers is cheating himself. It is an invitation to think–not to believe."

What an invitation. ~~Beth Ager

1: "Gulf" got written as a different sort of superman story and can be found in Assignment in Eternity.

2: Letter found in Grumbles from the Grave.

“A chilling, unnerving, and timely debut novel about what it means to speak out, even in silence.”

—Katharine McGee, New York Times bestselling author of The Thousandth Floor

In a world where every word and gesture is copyrighted, patented or trademarked, one girl elects to remain silent rather than pay to speak, and her defiant and unexpected silence threatens to unravel the very fabric of society.

Speth Jime is anxious to deliver her Last Day speech and celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns fifteen, Speth must pay for every word she speaks (“Sorry” is a flat ten dollars and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec) and even every gesture of affection. She’s been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt, and can’t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she’s unable to afford.

But when Speth’s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family’s crippling debt, she can’t express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: rather than read her speech—rather than say anything at all—she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth’s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.

Обложка книги Analyste Analyste

 Автор: Мелехов Андрей


Что может быть общего между Ветхим Заветом и нашей жизнью начала XXI века? Как могут пересечься пути Господни и, скажем, Главного разведывательного управления? Почему роман, написанный на русском, назван французским словом «Analyste» («Аналитик»)?

Во многом необычное произведение Андрея М. Мелехова — это путешествие туда, где редко бывают живые и откуда никогда не возвращаются умершие. Вернее, почти никогда. Действие романа начинается в африканской стране Ангола, в которой в наши дни мало что напоминает о временах холодной войны. Кроме разве что оружия советского производства, да теперь уже российских военных разведчиков. Но помимо Африки читателю предстоит побывать и в гораздо более далеких и загадочных местах…


Андрей М. Мелехов — литературный псевдоним человека, настоящее имя которого известно на просторах бывшего СССР скорее в сфере бизнеса. Он учился и работал в Англии и США, несколько лет прослужил в Советской Армии, выполняя интернациональный долг все в той же Анголе. «Analyste» — это не детектив, а попытка ответить на волнующие автора вопросы жизни, смерти и совести.

 Автор: Карпин Дмитрий


Обычный, казалось бы, вопрос, на который каждый для себя, вроде бы, должен отвечать лично, привел в середине 21-го века к необратимым последствиям. Экстремистско-религиозные группировки будоражили мир, противники религии не оставались в стороне и проводили варварские акции, спиливая кресты и оскверняя храмы. Число взаимных претензий со стороны верующих и атеистов друг к другу достигло накала. Словесные дебаты с экранов телевизоров, мониторов компьютеров и страниц газет перекинулись на улицы и стали перерастать во все большие открытые протесты и выступления, которые вскоре переросли в народные волнения. Религиозная паника захватывала все больше стран, то тут, то там возникали локальные конфликты и гражданские войны. Все это привело к недолгой, но все же мировой войне. Было применено ядерное оружие и несколько бомб уничтоживших миллионы ни в чем не повинных людей, наконец, решили ее исход. Лидеры стран победителей объединили весь мир в один кулак и создали мировое правительство, куда вошли тринадцать представителей выигравшего альянса. А причину, из-за которой возникла эта ужасная война, решено было уничтожить! Религию запретили! Ее признали пережитком прошлого и в мире воцарилось безверие…

 Серия: Revolutionary Trilogy


Fifteen years ago, revolution swept across Europe. In Britain, Valeri Kovalenko’s mother and father died taking part, their revolution failing, but their deaths not to be in vain. Now, Valeri and the working men of Britain face a crisis worse than anyone before them, with the rich freely looting and plundering the country’s wealth while the people live under the oppression of unemployment, violence, and death. But not all is lost. In being pushed to the brink of starvation, Valeri finally realizes what must be done.

In the working-class parts of London, there’s revolution in the offing again. After living for their whole lives in a world of poverty and despair, men like Valeri have been pushed until they have only one choice: rise!

Part future history, part warning on the folly of our times, Apocalypse Rising foretells a spectacular war not on the battlefields of some foreign county but in the streets of our own cities, through crisis, terror, and a cataclysmic devastation the likes of which the world has never seen.

Обложка книги Arena One: Slaverunners Arena One: Slaverunners

 Автор: Rice Morgan

 Серия: Survival Trilogy


“From Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, comes a new trilogy of dystopian fiction.

New York. 2120. American has been decimated, wiped out from the second Civil War. In this post-apocalyptic world, survivors are far and few between. And most of those who do survive are members of the violent gangs, predators who live in the big cities. They patrol the countryside looking for slaves, for fresh victims to bring back into the city for their favorite death sport: Arena One. The death stadium where opponents are made to fight to the death, in the most barbaric of ways. There is only one rule to the arena: no one survives. Ever.

Deep in the wilderness, high up in the Catskill Mountains, 17 year old Brooke Moore manages to survive, hiding out with her younger sister, Bree. They are careful to avoid the gangs of slaverunners who patrol the countryside. But one day, Brooke is not as careful as she can be, and Bree is captured. The slaverunners take her away, heading to the city, and to what will be a certain death.

Brooke, a Marine's daughter, was raised to be tough, to never back down from a fight. When her sister is taken, Brooke mobilizes, uses everything at her disposal to chase down the slaverunners and get her sister back. Along the way she runs into Ben, 17, another survivor like her, whose brother was taken. Together, they team up on their rescue mission.

What follows is a post-apocalyptic, action-packed thriller, as the two of them pursue the slaverunners on the most dangerous ride of their lives, following them deep into the heart of New York. Along the way, if they are to survive, they will have to make some of the hardest choices and sacrifices of their lives, encountering obstacles neither of them had expected – including their unexpected feelings for each other. Will they rescue their siblings? Will they make it back? And will they, themselves, have to fight in the arena?

 Серия: Survival Trilogy


Having just escaped from the treacherous island that was once Manhattan, Brooke, Ben, Logan, Bree and Rose make their way up the Hudson river in their stolen boat, low on fuel, low on food, and desperately needing shelter from the cold. On their tails are the slaverunners, who will stop at nothing until they capture them and bring them back.

As they make their way upriver in this post-apocalyptic, action-packed thriller, on their way to try to find the mythical city in Canada, they will need to use all their ingenuity and survival skills to stay alive. Along the way they will encounter crazed survivors, roving gangs of predators, cannibals, wild animals, a desolate wasteland, and an unstoppable blizzard. They sustain injuries, get sick, and the Hudson freezes over as they do their best to salvage what they can and avoid the slaverunners' pursuit. They find a small island and think they have found respite – until events don't go their way. It is not until they board a mysterious train to nowhere that they find that things can always get worse.

Along the way, Brooke's feelings for Logan intensify, as do her feelings for Ben. Torn between these two boys, caught between their jealousy, she is unsure how she feels – until events choose for her.

As they find themselves thrown back into an arena, they are shocked to discover that Arena Two is even worse. Thrown into a barbaric fighting stage, equipped with weapons, pitted against other teenagers – and against themselves – Brooke and the others will be forced to choose what's important, and to make the most difficult sacrifices of their lives. Because in Arena Two, no one survives. Ever.

Обложка книги Armageddon Crazy Armageddon Crazy

 Автор: Farren Mick


A complex and mordant satire. Near-future America has become a dictatorship run by a fundamentalist Christian televangelist in the Jim Bakker mould, with the Constitution suspended, a religious police force of Deacons who root out heresy and liberalism by torture, and concentration camps for unbelievers. Control is reinforced at mass prayer meetings by the use of extravagant special effects projections – the Beast, the Whore of Babylon, and other Revelations favourites in 100-foot high 3D. The best effects programmer in the business is Charlie Mansard, an eccentric slob who would long ago have wound up in a camp but for his usefulness to the regime. Meanwhile, a terrorist group, the Lefthand Path, is setting bombs in public places. Harry Carlisle, a tough old-school NYPD cop, is tasked with nailing Lefthand Path, unaware that he is merely a pawn in a power struggle among the elite (and that his girlfriend is a terrorist sleeper agent). Some great jokes in here. Notice how Americans (the South Park movie, Dennis Leary in No Cure for Cancer, etc.) often jest about having a war with Canada?  Well, in this novel, it’s the Canucks who do the invading. Oh, and Elvis is an officially-tolerated cult religion, followers dressed in His image, and His own Holy Book. The whole thing builds to a glorious climax when the special effects finally run amok and the regime comes crashing down.  With the state of special FX in the movies now, this novel is entirely filmable.  But would anyone have the balls?  Not in Hollywood, probably.
