Journeys Through Time & Space: 5 Classic Novels of Science Fiction and Fantasy

by H. G. Wells Mark Twain David Lindsay E. R. Eddison Edgar R Burroughs

A Nebula Award winner presents tales that shaped modern science fiction and fantasy—five complete novels by Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, and more. In this handpicked collection, New York Times–bestselling author Greg Bear travels back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when novelists let their imaginations soar beyond conventional boundaries of time and space and contributed to the emergence of imaginative new literary genres. In 1889, Mark Twain introduced Americans to time travel in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, in which a hard-headed New Englander is sent back through history to the age of chivalry. Six years later, H. G. Wells propelled an intrepid inventor into the far future via The Time Machine; there, our fearless hero discovers a nightmarish evolutionary scenario in which technologically advanced but mutated Morlocks dwell underground, preying on the innocent aboveground Eloi. In 1912, long before Ray Bradbury or Star Wars, Edgar Rice Burroughs imagined the first wildly popular alternative fantasy/alien culture with A Princess of Mars, transporting readers from Arizona to the red planet, where Confederate soldier John Carter is swept up in another kind of civil war and seduced by a gorgeous red-hued princess. In 1920, Scottish novelist David Lindsay presented A Voyage to Arcturus, an interstellar quest for truth as well as an inquiry into the nature of good and evil that inspired generations of fantasy writers to come. And in 1922, E. R. Eddison turned the planet Mercury into a fantasy version of Earth where demons and witches wage war on a Homeric scale in The Worm Ouroboros. With an insightful introduction, Bear celebrates the writers who first swept readers away to other times and worlds—and blew their minds in ways that altered our literary landscape and collective imagination forever.

Cronache di Galadria I - L’Altro Mondo

by David Gay-Perret Annalisa Blè

Che cosa succede quando un uomo riesce a relizzare un sogno? Perde ogni motivo per andare avanti o al contrario utilizza questo sogno come fonte di incoraggiamento e d'ispirazione per realizzare altri sogni, forse ancora più grandi? Sono queste le domande chesi pone Glaide, un adolescente di 17 anni, discreto e filosofo, la cui unica ragione di vita è la speranza di relizzare il proprio sogno: andare su un Altro Mondo... Un mondo di misteri, di battaglie epiche e di avventure. E' per questo che quando un giorno un mostro appare davanti ai suoi occhi e prende le sue amiche Gwenn e Emily, lui non esita a gettarsi nella mischia assieme al suo eterno complice Jérémy, spinto dalla gioia e dall'eccitazione all'idea che le sue preghiere siano finalmente state ascoltate... Un uomo anziano, uno sconosciuto informerà il gruppo del fatto che è giunto il momento di recarsi a Galadria : un altro mondo in cui la magia e i mostri regnano sovrani. Le due ragazze sono delle Maggs, delle maghe bianche delle quali Galadria ha una grande necessità e la cui sopravvivenza è assicurata da dei Protettori, ruolo che spetta ai due ragazzi. Ma appena gli adolescenti scoprono questa nuova terra, la loro guida perde la vita, lasciandoli soli e spaesati... Annunciati come semplici Maggs e Protettori, i quattro amici scopriranno molto presto che sono sia attesi che perseguitati. Di volta in volta vengono accolti, protetti, poi braccati, perseguitati, e finiranno per chiedersi se l'accanimento col quale i loro nemici, che non conoscono, cercano di uccidere Glaide non nasconda qualcosa. La loro avventura alla ricerca di risposte, li porterà a scoprire questa terra così incredibile, i suoi abitanti, le sue città, ma anche i mali che la affliggono, e il ruolo che essi hanno in tutto questo. E' allora che i suoi compagni cercano disperatamente un mezzo per tornare a casa, rifiutando la responsabilità troppo pesante che grava su di loro e, scappando da

The Boston Strangler

by Gerold Frank

New York Times Bestseller and Winner of the Edgar Award: The definitive true crime account of Boston's most notorious serial killer--and the exhaustive manhunt that ensued in the wake of his rampage. On June 14, 1962, twenty-five-year-old Juris Slesers arrived at his mother's apartment to drive her to church. But there was no answer at the door. After waiting a half hour, Juris shoved his way inside. He found fifty-five-year-old Anna Slesers lying on the kitchen floor, dead, the cord of her housecoat knotted tightly around her neck and turned up in a bow. Between 1962 and 1964, twelve more bodies were discovered in and around Boston: all women, all sexually assaulted, and all strangled--often with their own pantyhose. None of the victims exhibited any signs of struggle, nothing was stolen from their homes, and there were no signs of forcible entry. The police could find no discernable motive or clues. Who was this insane killer? How was he entering women's homes? And why were they letting him in? More than a gripping chronicle of an American serial killer on par with Jack the Ripper, The Boston Strangler is a shocking story about what happens to a city under a siege of terror. Drawn from hundreds of hours of personal interviews, as well as police, medical, and court documentation, author Gerold Frank's grisly, horrifying, and meticulously researched account was awarded the Edgar for Best Fact Crime.

Mas como é que se pode resistir a uma vila chamada Dieulefit, “Deus a fez”, a vila “aonde todos pertencem”? Descubra a verdadeira Provença em boa companhia. “Ri em voz alta... uma imagem tão vívida dos campos de lavandas, girassóis e oliveiras que você se sente como se estivesse lá com ela.” Stephanie Sheldrake, Revista Living France
