Обложка книги Earth Star Earth Star

 Автор: Edwards Janet


18-year-old Jarra has a lot to prove. After being awarded one of the military’s highest honours for her role in a daring rescue attempt, Jarra finds herself – and her Ape status – in the spotlight. Jarra is one of the unlucky few born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Derided as an ‘ape’ – a ‘throwback’ – by the rest of the universe, Jarra is on a mission to prove that Earth Girls are just as good as anyone else.

Except now the planet she loves is under threat by what could be humanity’s first ever alien contact. Jarra’s bravery – and specialist knowledge – will once again be at the centre of the maelstrom, but will the rest of the universe consider Earth worth fighting for?

 Серия: Arabesk


The brilliant sequel to the critically acclaimed PASHAZADE

Among many other things, Ashraf Bey is a fugitive from the US justice system (definitely); son of the Emir of Tunis (possibly); and chief of detectives in the El Iskandryian police force (apparently). Small wonder that he's a little confused...

Raf's ex-fiance Zara still doesn't want to see him, so she says. His nine-year-old niece is busy doing things with computers that are strictly illegal. And when the city suddenly starts to fall apart and Zara's father is accused of mass-murder, Raf begins to learn the true cost of loyalty...

As the US, France and Germany try to dominate both the present and future of the Middle East in this alternate 21st century - as they have the past - Ashraf Bey must become both saviour and avenger. It's not an easy trick, but someone has to do it...

Обложка книги El hombre en el castillo El hombre en el castillo

 Автор: Dick Philip K


Los caracteres de “El hombre en el castillo” no son sólo producto de la imaginación sino también manifestaciones de un sistema de fuerzas en el que el “I Ching” obra como un nexo análogo a un polo magnético. No obstante rara vez en una obra cualquiera de ficción, y casi nunca en la c-f podrían encontrarse caracteres más hondamente sentidos y más eficazmente retratados… La mejor novela hasta la fecha del escritor de c-f más consistentemente brillante. Ante todo por la verosimilitud con que Dick ha elaborado una ingeniosa estructura básica (unos Estados Unidos derrotados en la segunda guerra mundial y que han sido divididos en tres partes: las costas del Atlántico y del Pacífico respectivamente ocupadas por alemanes y japoneses, y una zona tapón entre dos esferas de influencia); luego por la absoluta originalidad de la presunción básica: “los alemanes ganaron la segunda guerra” aunque el “Libro de los cambios” informa sin embargo que esta amarga derrota no ha ocurrido en el mundo real… Un maestro de la c-f que ha conseguido transformar de un modo que nunca hubiéramos creido posible los temas y símbolos más fundamentales del género.

—John Brunner

Обложка книги Empire Day Empire Day

 Автор: Philip James

 Серия: New England


New York – July 1976 – in a World in which New England remains the sparkling jewel in the crown of the British Empire.

It is the day before Empire Day – 4th July – the day each year when the British Empire marks the brutal crushing of the rebellion dignified by the treachery of the fifty-six delegates to the Continental Congress who were so foolhardy as to sign the infamous Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on that day of infamy in 1776.

It is nearly two hundred years since George Washington was killed and his Continental Army was destroyed in the Battle of Long Island and now New England, that most quintessentially loyal and ‘English’ imperial fiefdom – at least in the original, or ‘First Thirteen’ colonies – is about to celebrate its devotion to the Crown and the Old Country, of which it still views, in the main, as the ‘mother country’.

Yet all is not roses. Since 1776 in a world of empires the British Empire has grown and prospered until now, it stands alone as the ultimate arbiter of global war and peace. The Royal Navy has enforced the global Pax Britannia for over a century since the World War of the 1860s established a lasting but increasingly tenuous ‘peace’ between the great powers.

Nonetheless, while elsewhere the Empire may be creaking at the seams, struggling to come to terms with a growing desire for self-determination; thus far the Pax Britannica has survived – buttressed by the commercial and industrial powerhouse of New England stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific North West – intact for all that barely a year goes by without the outbreak of another small, colonial war somewhere…

This said, the British ‘Imperial System’ remains the envy of its friends and enemies alike and nowhere has it been so successful as in North America, where peace and prosperity has ruled in the vast Canadian dominions and the twenty-nine old and recent colonies of the Commonwealth of New England for the best part of two centuries.

In Whitehall every British government in living memory has complacently based its ‘American Policy’ on the one immutable, unchanging fact of New England politics; that the First Thirteen colonies will never agree with each other about anything, let alone that the sixteen ‘Johnny-come-lately’ new (that is, post-1776) colonies, protectorates, territories and possessions which comprise half the population and eight-tenths of the land area of New England, should ever have any say in their affairs!

New England is a part of England and always will be because, axiomatically, it will never unite in a continental union. Notwithstanding, in the British body politic the myths and legends of that first late eighteenth-century rebellion in the New World still touches a raw nerve in the old country, much as in former epochs memories of Jacobin revolts, Oliver Cromwell and the Civil War still harry old deep-seated scars in the national psyche.

Empire Day might not have originally been conceived as a celebration of the saving of the first British Empire and but as time has gone by it has come to symbolise the one, ineluctable truth about the Empire: that New England is the rock upon which all else stands, an empire within an empire that is greater than the sum of all the other parts of the great imperium ruled from London.

In past times a troubling question has been whispered in the corridors of power in London: what would happen to the Empire – and the Pax Britannica – if the British hold on New England was ever to be loosened?

Generations of British politicians have always known that if the question was ever to be asked again in earnest it has but one answer.

If the New World ever discovers again a single voice supporting any kind of meaningful estrangement from the Old Country; it would surely be the end of the Empire…

Coming soon: Book 2 – Two Hundred Lost Years; and Book 3 – Travels Through the Wind.

 Автор: Holte Astrid


Oliver smalere øynene og så på bassenget, på overflaten av vannet, svaiende under dusjen jetfly, og plutselig innså at han ser… dukker. Han var ikke galt, og selv om det var bare en dukke, han følte seg urolig. De var svingende på vannet, ble de lyse kjoler gjennomvåt fra regn. En dag kom en nabo inviterte paret Uinshou kaffe. Franske kone Olivera var av yrke en psykolog, og hun hadde en teori om den enorme samlingen av dukker i et hus av tretti regel. Hun fortalte ektemannen at deres nabo — “kvinne-barn.” Oliver bedt om å forklare mer i detalj og hørt i respons til ordet “umoden” for å “unngå ansvar”, “problematisk bare om sin egen nytelse”, “for å overleve den følelsesmessige traumer.” Oliver ga opp: han alltid foretrukket de poeter psykologer. Men hva faen gjør disse dukker bassenget? Og hvor damen i huset?

Обложка книги Endgame Endgame

 Автор: Gee Colin

 Серия: Red Gambit


It is August 1946 and the world has fallen silent once more.

Peace.

A peace that one Alliance welcomes with open arms, savouring a real chance for the killing to end.

A peace that the leaders of another side welcome, seeing the end of combat as acceptable for another reason; so that their plans can foment and that their country might be prepared better for the new war to come.

A peace disregarded by others whose fanaticism will grant them no course of action but to continue the fight.

And a peace that yet another faction has its own ideas on and what purpose it might serve in their long-term plans.

Endgame relates the events from when the firing stopped to when Europe once again descended into a savage combat that ensured that the future of conflict on our planet would never be the same again.
