The Rift

SciFi-Thriller von Walter Jon Williams

FRACTURE LINES PERMEATE THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES. Some comprise the New Madrid fault, the most dangerous earthquake zone in the world. Other fracture lines are social—— economic, religious, racial, and ethnic. What happens when they all crack at once? Caught in the disaster as cities burn and bridges tumble, young Jason Adams finds himself adrift on the Mississippi with African-American engineer Nick Ruford. A modern-day Huck and Jim, they spin helplessly down the river and into the widening faults in American society, encountering violence and hope, compassion and despair, and the primal wilderness that threatens to engulf not only them, but all they love…

Walter Jon Williams, geb. 1953 hat seine Schriftstellerkarriere mit Seefahrts-Abenteuern begonnen und sich dann zum erfolgreichen Autor von SciFi gewandelt. “The Rift would be a very good beach book, if you could put it down long enough to get into the water.” (he San Diego Union Tribune) (279 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 948 Seiten noch günstig?

Implied Spaces

SciFi von Walter Jon Williams

Aristide, a semi-retired computer scientist turned swordsman, is a scholar of the implied spaces, seeking meaning amid the accidents of architecture in a universe where reality itself has been sculpted and designed by superhuman machine intelligence. While exploring the pre-technological world Midgarth, one of four dozen pocket universes created within a series of vast, orbital matrioshka computer arrays, Aristide uncovers a fiendish plot threatening to set off a nightmare scenario, perhaps even bringing about the ultimate Existential Crisis: the end of civilization itself.

WEin weiteres, aber vom Charakter her ganz anderes Buch, eher „hard Scifi“. “The Rift would be a very good beach book, if you could put it down long enough to get into the water.” (he San Diego Union Tribune) (54 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?

An Afternoon to Kill

Krimi von Shelley Smith

Lancelot Jones was on his way to his first job — as tutor to an Indian Rajah’s son. But the Rajah’s ancient plane and incompetent pilot decanted him in the middle of a desert. The wrong desert at that. There, seeking shade, he finds the only dwelling of any size within miles and its curious owner, an old Englishwoman called Alva Hine. Taking him into her home, Alva begins to tell Lancelot Jones an incredible tale.

Shelley Smith, eigentlich Nancy Hermione Bodington, 1912 – 1998, war eine britische Autorin, deren Krimis in ihrer Zeit großen Erfolg hatten. Dieses Buch ist erstmals 1953 erschienen. „Yet, there wasn’t just one twist waiting on me as I neared the end, but another, then yet another! I never saw that ending coming, and when it hit me I felt delighted, tricked, and thoroughly satisfied.“ (Rezensentin) (1 Rezension / 4,0 Sterne), 188 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Seasiders Krimi von A. J. Griffiths-Jones
Grace & Dick Thomas sind die stolzen Besitzer des Sandybank Guest House, einer makellosen und beliebten Einrichtung in einer erstklassigen Lage direkt am Strand. Das ganze Jahr über kommen und gehen Touristen und nutzen die wunderbare Lage und die erstklassigen Kochkünste ihrer Gastgeber. „The biggest secret of all is revealed at the end of the book and whatever you do, do not let anyone who has read the book divulge the ending as the twist will leave you open mouthed with surprise.“ (Rezensent) (19 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 167 Seiten – noch gratis?

City of Mists SciFi/Steampunk von Sawyer Grey
Jack Branham kennt den Mars besser als jeder lebende irdische Mann, aber als er die Korruption der amtlich zugelassenen Unternehmen enthüllt hat, haben seine Feinde ihn entführt und nach Hongkong verfrachtet, wo die Wachsamkeit der East India Company ihn davon abhalten könnte, mehr Ärger zu verursachen. „Grey creates an alternate reality of what could have been if life on Mars really had existed in the late 1800’s. He creates a world of Martians and Humans with a deep cultural feel and indepth history to all.“ (Rezensent) (2 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 153 Seiten – noch gratis?

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer

YA-Fantasy von Rick Riordan

My name is Magnus Chase. I’m orphaned and living rough on the streets of Boston. And things are about to get much worse. My day started out normally enough. I was sleeping under a bridge when some guy kicked me awake and said, ‚They’re after you.‘ Next thing I know, I’m reunited with my obnoxious uncle, who casually informs me that my long-lost father is a Norse god. Nothing normal about that. And it turns out the gods of Asgard are preparing for war.

How Fast Can You Run

Literarisch-biografischer Roman von Harriet Levin Millan

Five-year-old Majok wakes in the middle of the night to his burning hut and flees from the soldiers torching his village in South Sudan. He gets separated from his mother and begins a ten year journey, trekking through war zones and living in refugee camps, until he receives political asylum to the US. Majok, now Michael, is given a new start in the US. Yet his new life mirrors his migrant life as he faces discrimination once again, and ultimately betrayal.

Harriet Levin Millan ist eine Poetin und Romanautorin und lehrt an einer amerikanischen Universität literarisches Schreiben. Dieses Buch beruht auf einer wahren Geschichte, ist aber literarisch verdichtet. „Milan tells his story with the grace of a poet and capture’s the beauty of the human spirit that triumphs after enduring incredible loss and hardship when he finds asylum in the United States. A great read that will open your heart to those who have been separated from their families and forced to abandon their war-torn countries. “ (Rezensentin) (47 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 312 Seiten – noch gratis?

My Calabria is served Rezepte von Annalisa Oppedisano
Die Autorin ist Italienerin und – nun ja – aus Kalabrien und bietet sehr authentische Rezepte ihrer Heimat. „I completely love this book! The recipes are superb and the portrayal of the conventions and traditions of the Calabrese method for setting them up have made an impression in my mind of how much love goes into their meal preparation. These are certainly Italian recipes and taste authentic!“ (Rezensentin) (12 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne) – noch gratis?
