Julia and the Master of Morancourt

Twenty-year-old Julia Maitland is ready to find a husband. Lord Dominic Brandon has proposed, delighting Julia's socially ambitious mother, despite Brandon's unsavory reputation and rumored ties to smuggling. Though her father favors Jack Douglas-who lacks a title but will inherit his father's fortune-Julia has eyes only for Kit, Jack's younger brother, who will inherit very little. When Julia accompanies her Aunt Lucy to the estate of Lucy's recently deceased childhood friend, she is stunned to see Kit, who inherited the estate and new surname from his godmother, making him the Master of Morancourt. The attraction between the pair blossoms but Julia knows a loveless union still awaits unless she can convince her family otherwise. Aylmer is more enamored of the period than of her characters, and the plot serves as merely a framework for sumptuous descriptions of Regency-era events and fashions. Despite a treasure trove of Austen-era trivia, a stronger narrative would have made the love affair more compelling.

Julian

Apostat. Fugitif. Conquérant.


Il s’appelle Julian Comstock ; il est le neveu du président des États-Unis.

Son père, le général Bryce Comstock, a été pendu pour trahison (on murmure qu’il était innocent de ce crime).

Julian est né dans une Amérique à jamais privée de pétrole, une Amérique étendue à soixante états, tenue de main de maître par l’Église du Dominion. Un pays en ruine, exsangue, en guerre au Labrador contre les forces mitteleuropéennes. Un combat acharné pour exploiter les ultimes ressources naturelles nord-américaines.

On le connaît désormais sous le nom de Julian l’agnostique ou (comme son oncle) de Julian le Conquérant.

Ceci est l’histoire de ce qu’il a cru bon et juste, l’histoire de ses victoires et défaites, militaires et politiques.


Fresque post-apocalyptique, western du XXIIe siècle, fulgurant hommage à Mark Twain, Julian est le plus atypique des romans de Robert Charles Wilson. Une réussite majeure et une critique sans concession des politiques environnementales actuelles.

Julian: A Christmas Story

In the reign of President Deklan Comstock, a reborn United States is struggling back to prosperity. Over a century after the Efflorescence of Oil, after the Fall of the Cities, after the Plague of Infertility, after the False Tribulation, after the days of the Pious Presidents, the sixty stars and thirteen stripes wave from the plains of Athabaska to the national capital in New York City. In Colorado Springs, the Dominion sees to the nation’s spiritual needs. In Labrador, the Army wages war on the Dutch. America, unified, is rising once again.

Then out of Labrador come tales of a new Ajax - Captain Commongold, the Youthful Hero of the Saguenay. The ordinary people follow his adventures in the popular press. The Army adores him. The President is.troubled. Especially when the dashing Captain turns out to be his nephew Julian, son of the falsely accused and executed Bryce.

Treachery and intrigue dog Julian’s footsteps. Hairsbreadth escapes and daring rescues fill his days. Stern resolve and tender sentiment dice for Julian’s soul, while his admiration for the works of the Secular Ancients, and his adherence to the evolutionary doctrines of the heretical Darwin, set him at fatal odds with the hierarchy of the Dominion. Plague and fire swirl around the Presidential palace when at last he arrives with the acclamation of the mob.

As told by Julian’s best friend and faithful companion, a rustic yet observant lad from the west, this tale of the 22nd Century asks - and answers - the age-old question: “Do you want to tell the truth, or do you want to tell a story?”


Nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 2006.

In 2009 the author has extended the story into a full length novel titled Julian Comstock: A Story of 22nd-Century America, which was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2010.

Julian Comstock

Wir schreiben die die zweite Hälfte des 22. Jahrhunderts. Nach dem Zusammenbruch des internationalen Wirtschafts- und Finanzsystems, ist die Welt wieder in Regionen und Einzelstaaten zerfallen. Die USA sind nur noch nach außen ein demokratisches Land — tatsächlich herrscht eine religiöse Clique, die Wissenschaft und Technik verachtet und die Menschen unseres Jahrhunderts, die sogenannten »Säkularen Alten«, als Wurzel allen Übels begreift. Außerdem führt sie im Norden des amerikanischen Kontinents Krieg gegen die Europäer — ein Krieg, der nicht mit High-Tech-Waffen, sondern mit den Methoden des 19. Jahrhunderts geführt wird. Dies ist die Zeit, in der Julian Comstock heranwächst. Er philosophiert gerne und liest am liebsten Bücher, die nicht das Prüfsiegel der Regierung tragen, Bücher also, die sich mit solch verbotenen Themen wie Evolutionstheorie oder der Mondlandung befassen, Bücher, die Julian immer mehr in Opposition zum herrschenden Regime bringen. Doch damit beginnt eine fatale Entwicklung. Denn Julian Comstock ist der Neffe des amerikanischen Präsidenten …


Mit »Julian Comstock« legt Robert Charles Wilson, Autor des preisgekrönten internationalen Bestsellers »Spin« nicht nur einen großartigen Abenteuerroman vor, sondern auch einen brillanten Kommentar zur gegenwärtigen politischen Situation.

June

A visit from the Queen, a tragic accident, a divided family: a masterful new novel from the prize-winning Gerbrand Bakker.

On a hot summer’s day in June 1969, everyone is gathered to welcome Queen Juliana. The boys and girls wave their flags enthusiastically. But just as the monarch is getting into her car to leave, little Hanne Kaan and her mother arrive late — the Queen strokes the little girl’s cheek and regally offers Anna Kaan her hand.

It would have been an unforgettable day of celebration if only the baker hadn’t been running late with his deliveries and knocked down Hanne, playing on the roadside, with his brand-new VW van.

Years later, Jan Kaan arrives on a hot day in June in order to tidy his sister’s grave, and is overcome again with grief and silent fury. Isn’t it finally time to get to the bottom of things? Should the permit for the grave be extended? And why won’t anyone explain to his little niece Dieke why grandma has been lying up in the hayloft for a day and a half, nursing a bottle of Advocaat and refusing to see anyone?

June traces in spellbinding, tender detail how the ripples from one tragic incident spread through a community, a family and down the generations.

June Rain

On 16 June 1957, a shoot-out in a village church in northern Lebanon leaves two dozen people dead. In the aftermath of the massacre, the town is rent in two: the Al-Ramis in the north and their rivals the Al-Samaeenis in the south. But lives once so closely intertwined cannot easily be divided. Neighbours turn into enemies and husbands and wives are forced to choose between loyalty to each other and loyalty to their clan.

Drawing on an actual killing that took place in his home town, Douaihy reconstructs that June day from the viewpoints of people who witnessed the killing or whose lives were forever altered by it. A young girl overhears her father lending his gun to his cousins, but refusing to accompany them to the church. A school boy walks past the dead bodies, laid out in the town square on beds brought out from the houses. A baker whose shop is trapped on the wrong side of the line hopes the women who buy his bread will protect him. At the center of the portrait is Eliyya, who, twenty years after emigrating to the US, returns to the village to learn about the father who was shot through the heart in the massacre, the father he never knew.

With a masterful eye for detail, Douaihy reconstructs that fateful June Sunday when rain poured from the sky and the traditions and affections of village life were consumed by violence and revenge.

Grant Archer, ein idealistischer junger Astronom, wird als Spitzel auf die Station entsandt, um Beweise für gottlose Aktivitäten zu sammeln. Doch schon bald überwiegt seine Neugier und sein Forscherdrang die Loyalität zu seinen inquisitorischen Auftraggebern.

Just Call Me Superhero

Russian-born Alina Bronsky, whose Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine was named a Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly and a Favorite Read of the Year by both The Huffington Post and The Wall Street Journal, returns with a startling new novel about the difficult work of self-acceptance.

After an encounter with a dog in which he was worsted, seventeen-year-old Marek begins attending a support group for young people with physical disabilities, which he dubs “the cripple group,” led by an eccentric older man known as The Guru. Marek is dismissive of the other members of the support group, seeing little connection between their misfortunes and his own. The one exception to this is Janne, the beautiful young and wheelchair-bound woman with whom he has fallen in love. When a family crisis forces Marek to face his demons, group or no group, he is in dire need of support. But the distance he has put between himself and The Guru’s misshapen acolytes may well be too great to bridge.

An atmospheric evocation of modern Berlin and a vivid portrait of youth under pressure, Just Call Me Superhero is destined to consolidate Alina Bronsky’s reputation as one of Europe’s most wryly entertaining and stylish authors.

Just One Look

From Publishers Weekly

Just one look at Coben's latest stand-alone thriller (after No Second Chance) highlights the author's customary strengths (swift pacing, strong lead characters) but also his weaknesses, including limited originality and, in this case, a plot so complicated that many final pages are devoted to sorting it out. The premise is simple enough: suburban housewife Grace Lawson collects some pictures at the local Photomat; inexplicably, one is an old print depicting her husband, Jack, with other college students; when Grace shows the photo to Jack, he drives away-and disappears. Grace's hunt for her missing husband, whom we learn has been kidnapped (but why? and Coben fans will note that the author's last novel also hinged on a kidnapped family member), sweeps her back into a nightmare she thought she'd escaped: the evening years ago when she survived a rock concert rampage, occasioned by a shooting that left many dead. Meanwhile, Eric Wu, a-dare we say?-inscrutable martial-arts killer who has snatched Jack for reasons unknown, menaces assorted folk. Eventually Grace, aided by a Gotti-like mobster whose child was killed in the rampage, gloms on to Wu, as well as on to Jack's sister, a high-powered attorney who, it turns out, is representing the guy who started the rampage by firing his gun. Only he didn't start the rampage after all, and then there's the rock star who vanished after the shooting and resultant mayhem-what's he now doing on Grace's doorstep? This is all as complicated as a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle and about as hard to figure out, although in the midst of the murk there are some wonderful character touches. Coben can write thrillers that lift readers off their seats; this one, alas, will have them slumping.

From Booklist

If the trick of suspense writing is to get readers to identify so passionately with the beleaguered principal character that they disappear into the story, feeling the knife points of tension themselves, then Coben is the Houdini of the form. Coben, who has won the Trifecta of mystery writing-the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Shamus Awards-likes to burst the bubble of suburban security by having his characters' well-ordered, happy lives upended in ways that mirror readers' fears. In his four stand-alone thrillers, the past comes back to bite or haunt the protagonist, or the present vanishes in one fatal moment. In this latest excursion into the dark, a suburban mother finds one picture that does not belong in the pack of family outing photos she's just picked up. The picture, showing a group of college students, seems as if it was taken 20 years ago. One of the group looks like her husband. A girl in the group has an X drawn across her face. When Mrs. Happily Married shows the picture to her husband, he seems shaken, then leaves home. Coben ratchets up the suspense of the wife trying to find her husband with another drama, that of a serial killer in the neighborhood. A tragic accident from the woman's past intersects with her husband's secrets and the movements of the killer in ways that are satisfyingly creepy.

Tu mènes une vie normale, banale, plutôt enviable. Tu as su t’imposer dans ce monde, y trouver ta place.

Et puis un jour…

Un jour, tu te retournes et tu vois une ombre derrière toi.

À partir de ce jour-là, elle te poursuit. Sans relâche.

Juste une ombre.

Sans visage, sans nom, sans mobile déclaré.

On te suit dans la rue, on ouvre ton courrier, on ferme tes fenêtres.

On t’observe jusque dans les moments les plus intimes.

Les flics te conseillent d’aller consulter un psychiatre. Tes amis s’écartent de toi.

Personne ne te comprend, personne ne peut t’aider. Tu es seule.

Et l’ombre est toujours là. Dans ta vie, dans ton dos.

Ou seulement dans ta tête ?

Le temps que tu comprennes, il sera peut-être trop tard…


Tu commandes ? Apprends l’obéissance.

Tu méprises ? Apprends le respect.

Tu veux vivre ? Meurs en silence…

Justice, Inc.

The greatest crime fighter of the forties returns!


In the roaring heart of the crucible, steel is made. In the raging flame of personal tragedy, men are sometimes forged into something more than human.

It was so with Dick Benson. He had been a man. After the dread loss inflicted on him by an inhuman crime ring, he became a machine of vengeance dedicated to the extermination of all other crime rings.

He turned into the person we know now: a figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both; a mechanism of whipcord and flame; a symbol of destruction to crooks and killers; a terrible, almost impersonal Force, masking chill genius and supernormal power behind a face ever as white and dead as a mask from the grave. Only his pale eyes, like ice in a polar dawn, hint at the deadliness of the scourge the underworld heedlessly invoked against itself when crime’s greed turned the retired adventurer, Richard Henry Benson, into — The Avenger.

Justine Ou Les Malheurs De La Vertu

Rejetant la douce nature rousseauiste, Sade dévoile le mal qui est en nous et dans la vie. La vertueuse Justine fait la confidence de ses malheurs et demeure jusque dans les plus scabreux détails l'incarnation de la vertu. Apologie du crime, de la liberté des corps comme des esprits, de la cruauté 'extrême sensibilité des organes connue seulement des êtres délicats', l'oeuvre du marquis de Sade étonne ou scandalise. C'est aussi une oeuvre d'une poésie délirante et pleine d'humour noir.
