Обложка книги A Bridge of Years A Bridge of Years

 Автор: Wilson Charles Robert


Returning to his hometown after a failed marriage, recovering alcoholic Tom Winter purchases a house only to discover that it connects with another time and place—and his desire to “start over” suddenly becomes a literal possibility.

Wilson excels at psychological suspense, as the spiritual and emotional challenges his characters face are as intense as the physical dangers.


Nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award for Best novel in 1991

Обложка книги A Cidade e as Estrelas A Cidade e as Estrelas

 Автор: Clarke Arthur C


Em um futuro muito distante, toda a humanidade está confinada a uma única cidade, totalmente fechada. Ninguém pode sair da cidade, que funciona como o último reduto da raça humana. Todas as necessidades humanas são atendidas por um sofisticado sistema de computadores e a vida é virtualmente eterna. Os seres humanos, após uma existência muito prolongada, são armazenados em bancos de memória dos computadores para depois ressucitarem, evitando o tédio da vida eterna. Mas nem todos se conformam com esta situação: um jovem quer saber o que há lá fora. Esse inconformismo dá origem a uma das mais belas histórias da ficção científica e certamente trata-se de uma obra-prima de Arthur C. Clarke.

Обложка книги A Climate of Doubt A Climate of Doubt

 Автор: Moran Russell F


On a hot summer day, Homeland Security Secretary, Rick Bellamy, and his wife Ellen, a famous TV talk show host, walked along the ocean front trying to escape the heat. Suddenly the temperature dropped from the high 90s to below freezing in a matter of minutes. It began to snow-on July 16. The temperatures across the country and the world plummeted, creating winter in summer.

Bellamy and the rest of the government struggled to cope with the suddenly new climate, but to cope, they first had to find out what happened. Scientists from academia blamed the weather on a sudden acceleration of climate change, but they were unable to explain a 60-degree temperature drop in a matter of minutes. Two astronauts in an American space station realized that the sudden weather calamity coincided with a test of the 20 satellites that the space station controlled. Attention focused on a huge American corporation that owned the space station and the satellites.

Could there be a connection between the satellite tests and the radical drop in temperature? As the deaths piled up and the world economy tilted toward disaster because of gigantic summer blizzards, Rick Bellamy and his team struggled to find answers before it was too late. Was it a sudden shift in climate change or did it have something to do with the satellites? The biggest question remained-was the catastrophe an accident, or was somebody controlling the weather?

Обложка книги A Darkling Sea A Darkling Sea

 Автор: Cambias James L


On the planet Ilmatar, under a roof of ice a kilometer thick, a team of deep-sea diving scientists investigates the blind alien race that lives below. The Terran explorers have made an uneasy truce with the Sholen, their first extraterrestrial contact: so long as they don’t disturb the Ilmataran habitat, they’re free to conduct their missions in peace.

But when Henri Kerlerec, media personality and reckless adventurer, ends up sliced open by curious Ilmatarans, tensions between Terran and Sholen erupt, leading to a diplomatic disaster that threatens to escalate to war.

Against the backdrop of deep-sea guerrilla conflict, a new age of human exploration begins as alien cultures collide. Both sides seek the aid of the newly enlightened Ilmatarans. But what this struggle means for the natives—and the future of human exploration—is anything but certain, in *A Darkling Sea *by James Cambias.

Обложка книги A Dűne A Dűne

 Автор: Herbert Frank

 Серия: A Dűne


Az Impérium tízezer éves békéjét veszély fenyegeti. A lakott planéták ezreit összefogó, feudális birodalom egymásnak feszülő erői — a császár, a rivalizáló Nagy Házak és az Űrliga — mind egy kietlen sivatagbolygó köré gyűlnek, hogy eldöntsék, ki birtokolja az óriási homokférgek és pusztító viharok által uralt világot. Ez ugyanis az egyetlen hely az univerzumban, ahol megtalálható az űrutazáshoz elengedhetetlen, tudattágító hatású fűszer, a melanzs. A hűbérbirtokért megütköző seregek csatájában felülkerekedő ház győzelme azonban nem lehet teljes, mert a mély sivatagban felbukkan egy próféta, aki mögött felsorakoznak az eddig lakatlannak hitt terület népének fanatikus légiói… Frank Herbert klasszikus regénye négy évtized alatt sem veszített népszerűségéből. Jelen kiadás egy új novellával gazdagodott, melyet Herbert irodalmi örökösei tettek hozzá A Dűne történetéhez.
