Обложка книги Obiettivo Longtunnel Obiettivo Longtunnel

 Автор: Foster Alan Dean

 Серия: Cosmo, Pip e Flinx


L'agente Flinx e il fedele minidrago Pip, chissà come, hanno la strana abitudine di trovarsi in mezzo a pericoli di ogni tipo, situazioni disperate o colossali intrighi da un angolo all'altro del Commonwealth Galattico; così, quando s'imbattono in una giovane donna che giace priva di sensi sulla riva di un fiume nella fitta giungla di Alaspin, Flinx non è molto sorpreso. E non si stupisce neppure di apprendere che la donna, Clarity Held, è in realtà una brillante scienziata, rapita chissà per quali motivi da un remoto avamposto sull'inospitale pianeta Longtunnel. Non c'è nulla di male nel prestare qualche attenzione a Clarity, anche se stavolta Flinx non ha nessuna intenzione di occuparsi del caso, perché ha finalmente deciso di pensare un po' a se stesso ed alla propria vita… ma Clarity è davvero attraente e poi il mistero che la circonda presenta dei lati interessanti... Tuttavia, mentre Flinx è alle prese con questo dilemma imprevisto, i rapitori di Clarity si rivelano per quello che in realtà sono: un gruppo di fanatici assassini che tramano in segreto e sarebbero disposti a tutto pur di arrestare le avanzate ricerche in corso sul remoto Longtunnel. Già, perché è questo pianeta, singolare e misterioso per più di una ragione, il vero cuore dell'enigma… Flinx a questo punto conosce benissimo i rischi che dovrà affrontare, ma ancora una volta è deciso ad andare fino in fondo.

L'ultima travolgente avventura di Flinx e del minidrago Pip nel fantastico universo del Commonwealth Galattico.

 Серия: Quadrail


In this noir thriller set on the interstellar Quadrail, former government agent Frank Compton can't catch a break. After a successful mission against the Modhri, the coral polyp-based group mind that is attempting to take over the galaxy, Frank arrives at his New York apartment. A young woman is waiting for him, pointing a gun at his face. She tells him that someone on New Tigris is holding her ten-year-old sister. Compton takes her gun and orders her out, only to be rousted out of bed and accused of her brutal murder.

After Frank's ally Bruce McMicking posts his bail, Frank travels to New Tigris with his assistant, Bayta, and locates the sister, who is part of a key resistance group that is fighting the Modhri throughout the galaxy. Compton must get the girl to a hidden refuge planet via the Quadrail to ensure the continued efforts of the resistance. But can he do it before the Modhri gets to her first?

Compelling characters, hard-boiled sleuthing, and non-stop action make this a hard SF thriller that will grab the reader and not let go until the last page.

 Серия: Zaginiona flota


Beznadziejna wojna pomiędzy Sojuszem a Światami Syndykatu trwa już od stu lat. Losy tego konfliktu odmienić miało odnalezienie kapitana Johna „Black Jacka” Geary’ego. Czy legendarny dowódca, wybudzony po dziesięcioleciach hibernacji, zdoła ocalić flotę Sojuszu przed bezlitosnym wrogiem? Po serii krwawych starć Sojusz utracił większość zapasów i znaczną część sprawności bojowej. Geary, pomimo dręczących go niepokojów, musi zatrzymać się w systemie Baldura, aby zdobyć potrzebne surowce w tamtejszych kopalniach. Jaki będzie jego następny ruch? Syndycy zaczynają rozgryzać strategię komodora i uciekająca flota z każdym skokiem traci przewagę nad wrogiem. W miarę zagłębiania się w raporty wywiadu Geary odkrywa kolejną prawdę: w tej wojnie nie chodzi tylko o starcie dwóch systemów wartości. Na planszy znajduje się także trzeci — kto wie — czy nie znacznie niebezpieczniejszy gracz, którego celem jest unicestwienie rodzaju ludzkiego…

 Серия: Космоархеологи


Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchinson's fifth adventure opens with the former starship pilot deskbound at the Academy (the twenty-third-century equivalent of NASA), which is facing catastrophic cuts to the space program. In a media campaign led by Hutch's old friend, acerbic newspaper editor Gregory MacAllister, pundits and politicians alike argue that the program's money would be better spent on the earthbound threats of global warming and disease. Perhaps not coincidentally, humans everywhere from Earth to Ophiuchi begin witnessing repeated visitations from "moonriders" (apparently alien spherical spacecraft), and they prompt an Academy investigative mission. To humor Hutch and grab a good story, MacAllister joins a spacebound team including a celebrated pilot and a senator's daughter. When the moonriders apparently redirect a few asteroids to destroy an orbiting hotel and narrowly bypass Earth, suspicions begin to emerge that the moonriders--and certain members of the Academy--may not be what they seem to be. McDevitt's energetic, character-driven prose serves double duty by exploring Earth's future political climate and forecasting the potential dangers awaiting humanity among the stars.

Обложка книги Omega Omega

 Автор: Макдевитт Джек

 Серия: Космоархеологи


Having mastered the big, sprawling adventure stories called space opera in books like Chindi, McDevitt extends the form in this feel-good SF novel that earns its hopeful conclusion. Priscilla «Hutch» Hutchens, heroine of several of McDevitt's previous novels, has had a full career as a space pilot and is now administrator of the government agency in charge of space research. Like most people, she's only mildly concerned with the long-range threat of the omega clouds, masses of energy floating through the universe that detect and pulverize artificial structures (and the intelligent creatures that live in them). After all, the cloud headed for Earth is 900 years away. This situation changes when a charmingly innocent young alien race is discovered just a few months before a cloud will obliterate it. Hutch has to juggle resources to save the cute creatures, at the same concealing the human intervention in order not to disrupt the alien civilization's development. The cloud's implacable threat keeps the action tightly focused, though the story shifts viewpoint frequently to show crowds of people committing themselves to different aspects of the mission. Part of the rescue effort involves spaceships and gadgets, but the most serious part depends on human intelligence and passion. McDevitt is very good at imagining strange challenges-and at picturing humans coping when things don't work out as planned. His characters succeed in imposing their compassion on the void.

 Серия: Pirx the Pilot


Pilot Pirx is an astronaut, a fresh-faced physical powerhouse, but no genius. His superiors send him on the most dangerous missions, either because he is expendable, or because they trust his bumbling ability to survive in almost any habitat or dilemma. Follow Pirx now through a world of hyper-technology and super-psychology from his early days as a hopelessly inept cadet soloing with a pair of sex-crazed horseflies… to a farside moon station built by bickering madmen… to a chase through space after a deadly sphere of light… to an encounter with a mossy old robot whose programming has slipped.

Обложка книги Orbitsville Orbitsville

 Автор: Shaw Bob

 Серия: Orbitsville


When the young son of Elizabeth Lindstrom, the autocratic president of Starflight, falls to his death, Vance Garamond, a flickerwing commander, is the obvious target for Elizabeth’s grief and anger. She is not a forgiving employer and Garamond has no choice but to flee.

But fleeing Elizabeth’s wrath means leaving the Solar System behind for ever and hiding somewhere in deep space.

Pursued remorselessly by Earth’s space fleet, the ‘somewhere’ that Garamond discovers in an unimaginably vast, alien-built, spherical structure which could just change the destiny of the human race.

Orbitsville ranks alongside Larry Niven’s Ringworld and Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama as one of the great imaginative constructs of SF. Deftly written, it powerfully conveys the immensity of space and the infinite possibilities it offers.

Обложка книги Os Robinsons do Cosmos Os Robinsons do Cosmos

 Автор: Carsac Francis

 Серия:


Após uma colisão interplanetária, um pequeno pedaço da Terra (exatamente um pequeno pedaço da França) se translada de nosso globo e se crava sobre um planeta desconhecido com seus habitantes, seus animais, suas casas, seus campos, suas árvores… E certamente, a vida contínua. Mas é necessário explorar este novo mundo, batizado Tellus; os descobrimentos mais assombrosos esperam os Robinsons do Cosmos. Há seres que pensam sobre Tellus que têm práticas, uma língua, cujo espírito funciona como o nosso, mas cujo aspecto é incrível. Há também monstros de pesadelo, lembrando os mastodontes pré-históricos. É este descobrimento progressivo de um novo universo, ao mesmo tempo que o estabelecimento de uma civilização nova que diz de uma maneira pasionante Francis Carsac. Sua novela é um certamente dos melhores livros de «Ciência ficção» escritos por um Francês e publicados na França. Pela amplitude da concepção, a sutileza, e inclusive a poesia, pode competir com as admiráveis obras do grande escritor inglês R.S. Lewis, cujos não se tem não esquecido o famoso Silêncio da Terra parecido nesta coleção.
