BALSS NO DEBESĪM

Staņislavs Lems.

IZDEVĒJA PIEBILDE

Sajā grāmatā publicēts rokraksts, kas pēc pro­fesora Pitera E. Hogarta nāves atrasts viņa pa­pīros. Sis varenā prāta cilvēks diemžēl nepaspēja galīgi sagatavot un pabeigt manuskriptu pie kura bija strādājis ilgāku laiku. Viņu kavēja slimība. Tā kā par šo viņam neparasto darbu, kurš bija pasākts ne tik daudz aiz patikas, kā, aiz pienākuma apziņas, nelaiķis profesors ne­labprāt runāja pat ar sev tuviem cilvēkiem, pie kuriem man bija tas gods piederēt, tad, sagata­vojot rokrakstu izdošanai, atklājās dažas ne­skaidrības un strīdīgi jautājumi. Patiesības la­bad man jāpaskaidro, ka to cilvēku vidū, kuri bija iepazīstināti ar manuskripta tekstu, radās iebildumi pret tā publicēšanu, jo tāds it kā ne­esot bijis nelaika nodoms. Taču nebija saglabā­jies neviens viņa rakstveida apliecinājums šāda veida nostādnei, tāpēc jādomā, ka līdzīgi pie­ņēmumi ir nepamatoti. Toties gluži skaidrs bija, ka manuskripts ir nepabeigts, jo tam trūka virs­raksta, un tāpat tikai uzmetumos izdevās atrast kādu fragmentu, kuram — un šeit radās vislie­lākās šaubas — vajadzēja būt vai nu ievadam, vai arī pēcvārdam.

Uz testamenta pilnvaru pamata es kā nelaika draugs un kolēģis galu galā nolēmu šo frag­mentu, kas grāmatas izpratnei ir būtiski svarīgs, izmantot par ievadvārdiem. Virsrakstu «Balss no debesīm» ierosināja izdevējs misters Džons F. Kilers, kuram es šeit vēlētos izsacīt pateicību par iejūtīgo gādību, kādu viņš izrādīja, rūpēda­mies par profesora Hogarta pēdējā darba izdo­šanu, un tāpat es gribētu pateikties misis Ro- zemundai T. Selingai, kura ar tādu centību veica sagatavošanas darbu un lasīja teksta pēdējo korektūru.

BEZRŪPĪGIE CEĻOTĀJI

MAZLIET FANTASTISKS ROMĀNS

RĪGA «LIESMA» 1989

Latviešu padomju rakstnieka (dz. 1950. g.) romāna va­roņi Marks un Ingus ir kādas provinces pilsētiņas iedzī­votāji; Autors liek viņiem nokļūt neparastās, pat fantas­tiskās situācijās. Viduslaiku Riga, kosmiskais kuģis, sa­prātīgu būtņu apdzīvota tāla planēta — tās ir dažas no romāna darbības vietām. Autors liek ikvienam padomāt par cilvēka misiju, par atbildību sava laika un arī nā­kotnes priekšā.

Обложка книги BioShock: Rapture BioShock: Rapture

 Автор: Shirley John

 Серия:


It's the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal has redefined American politics. Taxes are at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has brought a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business has many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom is diminishing… and many are desperate to take that freedom back.

Among them is a great dreamer, an immigrant who pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and admired men in the world. That man is Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserve better. And so he set out to create the impossible, a utopia free from government, censorship, and moral restrictions on science—where what you give is what you get. He created Rapture—the shining city below the sea.

But as we all know, this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be… and how it all ended.

Обложка книги Black No More Black No More

 Автор: Schuyler George Samuel


The landmark comic satire that asks, “What would happen if all black people in America turned white?”

It’s New Year’s Day 1933 in New York City, and Max Disher, a young black man, has just found out that a certain Dr. Junius Crookman has discovered a mysterious process that allows people to bleach their skin white—a new way to “solve the American race problem.” Max leaps at the opportunity, and after a brief stay at the Crookman Sanitarium, he becomes Matthew Fisher, a white man who is able to attain everything he has ever wanted: money, power, good liquor, and the white woman who rejected him when he was black.

Lampooning myths of white supremacy and racial purity and caricaturing prominent African American leaders like W. E. B. Du Bois, Madam C. J. Walker, and Marcus Garvey, Black No More is a masterwork of speculative fiction and a hilarious satire of America’s obsession with race.

Обложка книги Blackout Blackout

 Автор: Willis Connie

 Серия: All Clear


In her first novel since 2002, Nebula and Hugo award-winning author Connie Willis returns with a stunning, enormously entertaining novel of time travel, war, and the deeds—great and small—of ordinary people who shape history. In the hands of this acclaimed storyteller, the past and future collide—and the result is at once intriguing, elusive, and frightening.

Oxford in 2060 is a chaotic place. Scores of time-traveling historians are being sent into the past, to destinations including the American Civil War and the attack on the World Trade Center. Michael Davies is prepping to go to Pearl Harbor. Merope Ward is coping with a bunch of bratty 1940 evacuees and trying to talk her thesis adviser, Mr. Dunworthy, into letting her go to VE Day. Polly Churchill’s next assignment will be as a shopgirl in the middle of London’s Blitz. And seventeen-year-old Colin Templer, who has a major crush on Polly, is determined to go to the Crusades so that he can “catch up” to her in age. 

But now the time-travel lab is suddenly canceling assignments for no apparent reason and switching around everyone’s schedules. And when Michael, Merope, and Polly finally get to World War II, things just get worse. For there they face air raids, blackouts, unexploded bombs, dive-bombing Stukas, rationing, shrapnel, V-1s, and two of the most incorrigible children in all of history—to say nothing of a growing feeling that not only their assignments but the war and history itself are spiraling out of control.

Обложка книги Blueeyedboy Blueeyedboy

 Автор: Харрис Джоан


As in its predecessor, we are back in the Yorkshire town of Malbry, and in the company of a young man whose behaviour verges on the sociopathic. BB is in his 40s, still living with his mother and making his living with an unrewarding (in every sense) hospital job. His ‘real’ world is a virtual one. On a website which he has called ‘badguysrock’, he has an avatar -- and as the blueeyedboy of the title, he deals in deeply unsettling violent scenarios which feature people from his own life. As we enter deeper into this murky world, we learn other equally disturbing facts. BB has an unhealthy relationship with his mother, whose violent, controlling behaviour is some kind of a pointer to the unhappy man he has become as an adult. What's more, he appears to be the only surviving brother of a group of three. His dead brothers were named after the colours in which their mother dressed them, and had died in mysterious circumstances. There are so many off-kilter aspects to this world that readers will quickly discern it is only a matter of time before something very nasty happens.

When the government wields its power against its own people, every citizen becomes an enemy of the state. Will you fight the system, or be ground to dust beneath the boot of tyranny?

In his smash-hit anthologies Wastelands and The Living Dead, acclaimed editor John Joseph Adams showed you what happens when society is utterly wiped away. Now he brings you a glimpse into an equally terrifying future — what happens when civilization invades and dictates every aspect of your life?

From 1984 to The Handmaid’s Tale, from Children of Men to Bioshock, the dystopian imagination has been a vital and gripping cautionary force. Brave New Worlds collects 33 of the best tales of totalitarian menace by some of today’s most visionary writers.

From Huxley's Brave New World, to Orwell's 1984, to Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, dystopian books have always been an integral part of both science fiction and literature, and have influenced the broader culture discussion in unique and permanent ways. Brave New Worlds brings together the best dystopian fiction of the last 30 years, demonstrating the diversity that flourishes in this compelling subgenre. This landmark tome contains stories by Ursula K. Le Guin, Cory Doctorow, M. Rickert, Paolo Bacigalupi, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, and many others.
