Holy Cow

Witziger Roman von David Duchovny

Elsie Bovary is a cow and a pretty happy one at that. Until one night, Elsie sneaks out of the pasture and finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer’s family gathered around a bright Box God – and what the Box God reveals about something called an ‚industrial meat farm‘ shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core. The only solution? To escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Shalom, a grumpy pig who’s recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave turkey who can’t fly, but can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport …

David William Duchovny (* 7. August 1960 in New York City) ist ein US-amerikanischer Schauspieler, Schriftsteller und Musiker. “Who knew a cow’s view of the world was so funny yet so honest and true?

Hier geht es zum Special mit Krimis und Thrillern

The Tau Ceti Diversion SciFi von Chris McMahon
Das erste Raumschiff für interstellare Erforschungen, Starburst, startet von der Erde im Jahr 2157, aber es ist kein wissenschaftlicher Auftrag der NASA, es ist finanziert von dem Großunternehmen ExploreCorp. Ein Planet, der für Kolonisation geeignet ist, bedeutet nicht nur riesigen Profit, sondern für den Kommandanten Janzen auch, seine Familie wieder in Amt und Würden zu positionieren. „I’m a big fan of this sort of Sci-fi which pits a lone craft against some very dramatic action. Lots of plot twists, lots of excitement as the crew of the Starburst come up against some disturbing alien lifeforms.“ (Leser) (9 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 284 Seiten – noch gratis?

Flash Back Literarische SciFi von Ellison Blackburn
Wie viele Menschen bedauert Charley einiges. An der Grenze zur Depression und gelangweilt mit ihrem Leben, sehnt sie sich nach dem Weg, den sie nicht begangen hat. Dann präsentiert sich eines Tages eine unwahrscheinliche Antwort in Form einer kosmetischen Operation. „While there are many intelligent sci-fi and fantasy books that have given me reason to pause and consider my worldviews, few have given me the same level of introspection as this tale. In a way, the ending (which I will not spoil) is brilliant in the manner in which it addresses the reader.“ (Leser) (18 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 378 Seiten – noch gratis?
