Hаши предки. Жизнь и гибель трёх последних цивилизаций.

После прочтения рукописи этой книги я неделю не мог спокойно спать. И дело не в ночных кошмарах, а в том потрясении, которое я испытал буквально с первых глав этого исследования. Вот почему я советую вам, дорогие читатели, прежде чем раскрыть эту книгу, подумать: нужны ли вам дополнительные стрессы, ибо после прочтения «Hаших предков» вы станете совершенно другим человеком.

Harry Potter và Hòn đá Phù thủy

…Vào một buổi sáng thứ ba xám xịt âm u, ông bà Dursley thức dậy, chẳng hề cảm thấy chút gì rằng bầu trời đầy mây kia đang báo hiệu những điều lạ lùng bí ẩn sắp xảy ra trên cả nước Anh. Ông Dursley ậm ừ khi chọn cái cà-vạt chán nhất thế giới để đeo vô cổ đi làm. Bà Dursley thì lách chách nói trong lúc vật lộn với cậu quí tử Dudley đang gào khóc vùng vẫy, không chịu ngồi ăn sáng tử tế. Không một ai để ý đến một con cú to và đen thui bay xẹt qua cửa sổ.

Tám giờ rưỡi, ông Dursley xách cặp, hửi cổ bà Dursley một cái và cố hôn cậu quí tử trước khi đi làm. Nhưng cậu Dudley đang chơi trò đánh trống thổi kèn, phun phèo phèo thức ăn và vung vãi mọi thứ tứ tung, kể cả cái hôn của cha. Ông Dursley vừa cười khoái chí: "Thằng chó con!", vừa đi ra khỏi nhà. Ông lên xe, lái ra khỏi ngôi nhà số 4 của mình.

Chính ở ngay góc đường, ông nhận thấy dấu hiệu đầu tiên của chuyện lạ: Một con mèo xem bản đồ. Thoạt tiên, ông Dursley không nhận ra đó là chuyện kỳ quái. Thế rồi ông giật mình quay lại nhìn lần nữa. Có một con mèo khoang đứng ở góc đường Privet Drive, nhưng bây giờ chẳng có tấm bản đồ nào cả! Chẳng lẽ chuyện đó là do ông tưởng tượng ra ư? Hay ánh sáng đã làm ông lóa mắt? Ông Dursley chớp chớp mắt rồi chăm chú nhìn con mèo. Nó cũng nhìn lại ông.

Ông lái xe vòng qua góc đường, đi tiếp, và tiếp tục nhìn con mèo qua kính chiếu hậu. Nó lúc ấy đang đọc bảng tên đường Privet Drive - À không, ngó bảng tên đường chứ, mèo đâu có thể đọc bảng tên đường hay xem bản đồ! Ông Dursley lắc lắc đầu…

Hombres de armas

“¡Sé un HOMBRE en la Guardia de la Ciudad! ¡La Guardia de la Ciudad necesita HOMBRES!”

Hasta ahora, sin embargo, la Guardia Nocturna solo cuenta con el cabo Zanahoria (técnicamente un enano), el agente Cuddy (realmente un enano), el agente Detritus (un troll), la agente Angua (una mujer… la mayor parte del tiempo) y el cabo Nobbs (descalifica do de la carrera evolutiva por hacer trampas).

Y necesitan toda la ayuda que puedan conseguir. Porque hay un asesino suelto en las calles, con un arma nueva y mortífera y, lo más peligroso, un PLAN para devolver a la ciudad de Ankh-Morpork su grandeza perdida. Además, el misterio debe resolverse antes del mediodía, cuando el capitán Vimes devolverá su placa y se casará con la mujer más rica de la ciudad. Comparado con lo que les viene ahora, acabar con aquel dragón que atacó la ciudad hace un tiempo resultó fácil, ¡enfrentarse a un ejército de enanos sería más fácil! Y si la tarea es incluso complicada para un cuerpo de vigilancia normal, para la Guardia Nocturna puede convertirse en un quebradero de cabeza… literalmente.

Una espléndida novela de acción, misterio y humor, Hombres de armas es la decimoquinta entrega de la conocida serie Mundodisco.

Honor of the Clan

Duty. Honor. Country.

Three words that resound in the heart of the warrior. But what is duty when country is gone? Where does honor lie when allies are revealed as enemies, when friends are not who they seem and when enemies are the ones we love?

For Cally O’Neal and the O’Neal Bane Sidhe, underground fighters against the tyranny of Earth’s Darhel “allies,” duty lies in the overthrow of the established order. For Major General Michael O’Neal, her father, duty lies in maintaining that order to prevent a reinvasion by the dreaded Posleen.

When diamond meets diamond, when O’Neal battles O’Neal, the only sure outcome is fireworks.

Homínidos

Un experimento científico hace posible la inesperada interacción entre dos universos paralelos con la salvedad de que, en uno de ellos, la especie humana que ha predominado son los Neanderthales y no los Cromagnones, como ha ocurrido en nuestro mundo.

Homínidos es el inicio de una prodigiosa exploración cultural, un nuevo tipo de ficción antropológica que centra sus mejores virtudes no sólo en la más actual ciencia moderna, sino, y sobre todo, en las complejas consecuencias culturales, humanas y antropológicas de un inesperado cruce de culturas.

Heat Stroke

In Rachel Caine’s tempestuous follow-up to Ill Wind—forecast as “a fun read” by bestselling author Jim Butcher—the Wardens Association still protects the human race from extermination by climatic extremes, when they’re not turning on their own….

Accused of murder, Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin was chased across the country—and killed—by a team charged with hunting down rogue Wardens.

Five days later, Joanne had a lovely funeral and was posthumously cleared of all charges. Her human life was over, but she had been reborn into Djinnhood. Now, until she masters her enhanced powers, Joanne must try to avoid being “claimed” by a human. But when a hazard that only a Djinn could sense infiltrates Earth’s atmosphere, Joanne must somehow convince someone to do something about it—or the forecast will be deadly.

So who said being all-powerful was going to be easy?

Humanos

Un experimento científico hace posible la inesperada interacción entre dos universos paralelos con la salvedad de que, en uno de ellos, la especie humana que ha predominado son los Neanderthales y no los Cormagnones, como ha ocurrido en nuestro mundo.

Ponter Boddit y su hombre-compañero, Addikor Hulk, físicos neanderthales, han abierto un puente entre dos universos con su computador cuántico. Ahora se plantean volver a abrir ese paso para dar lugar al más prodigioso e intercambio cultural entre especies y universos.

Como Hominidos, que obtuvo el premio Hugo en 2003, Humanos ahonda en una prodigiosa exploración cultural, un nuevo tipo de ficción antropológica que centra sus mejores virtudes no sólo en la más actual ciencia moderna, sino, sobre todo, en las complejas consecuencias culturales, humanas y antropológicas de un inesperado cruce de culturas. Humanos explora con valentía esas diferencias culturales, mostrando otras posibilidades y contemplando nuestras propias convenciones sociales, culturales y religiosas desde un nuevo punto de vista.

Robert J. Sawyer es ya el mayor fenómeno de la ciencia ficción canadiense. Especialista en una ciencia ficción rigurosa que plantea cuestiones morales, ha obtenido ya más de veinticinco premios nacionales e internacionales por su obra. Con El experimento terminal obtuvo los premios Nebula, Aurora (de la ciencia ficción canadiense) y Homer (del foro de ciencia ficción de Compuserve) y, en los últimos seis años, ha sido cinco veces finalista del premio Hugo, un récord dificilmente igualable, que ha culminado con el Hugo obtenido por Hominidos.

Holidays are Hell

This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead…

There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard… or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!


KIM HARRISON introduces us to a younger Rachel Morgan—an undergraduate witch-in-training—who naively resurrects a spirit and sparks a terrifying showdown with a deadly undead adversary.

LYNSAY SANDS serves up a scrumptious stew of Yuletide suspense when, in order to escape from a determined stalker, a beautiful, reluctant shape-shifter must assume different forms.

MARGARET M. LIU keeps a petite-but-powerful government agent's hands full when she must join forces with a hunky necromancer to prevent an unholy brotherhood of terrorists and vampires from ringing in the New Year with blood.

VICKI PETTERSSON brings a former superhero—an elite Zodiac warrior-back to the mortal world for a Thanksgiving reunion with her equally hated and beloved enemy to do battle for the lives of her imperiled children.

Hallowed Circle

Persephone Alcmedi has been persuaded to compete for the position of High Priestess of the Cleveland, Ohio, coven — now that the former priestess, Vivian Diamond, has strangely gone missing. Unfortunately, there are a few small problems with the idea. Not only does Seph know rather more about Vivian's disappearance than the other witches realize, but the epic struggle she's just survived has left her with some highly unusual powers — ones that could be dangerous to reveal. Despite her reluctance, she agrees to participate, if only to prevent snooty Hunter Hopewell, an obnoxious but talented witch, from ending up in the winner's circle.

Can Seph hide her secrets — including her connection to the master vampire-wizard Menessos — from the terrifyingly wise judges? Plus, there's her rock 'n' roll werewolf boyfriend, Johnny, and some angry fairies to deal with….

Heretics of Dune

Frank Herbert was born in Tacoma, Washington, and educated at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide variety of jobs - including TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, creative writing teacher, reporter and editor of several West Coast newspapers - before becoming a full-time writer.

In 1952, Herbert began publishing science fiction with "Looking for Something?" in Startling Stories. But his true emergence as a writer of major stature did not occur until 1965, with the publication of Dune. Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune followed, completing the saga that the Chicago Tribune would call "one of the monuments of modern science fiction." Herbert is also the author of some twenty other books, including The Jesus Incident, The Dosadi Experiment, and Destination: Void. He died in 1986.

Hell's Horizon

Shan’s second book about the City takes place during roughly the same time period as the first (Procession of the Dead, 2010) but features many new characters, only tying together events from both books at the very end of the story. Al Jeery is a dedicated soldier for the Cardinal and happy to do his job until the day he takes a body to the morgue only to discover it is his girlfriend. Asked by the Cardinal to investigate, Al takes on the duty, persevering through a complex and often seemingly impossible investigation. Like Procession of the Dead, this story takes place entirely within Shan’s fictional yet modern-day city, run by the Cardinal, but the plot is constructed in the fashion of a mainstream police procedural. With almost too many twists to believe, dozens of characters, and the complex mythology of the City itself, Hell’s Horizon is not an easy read, yet it may appeal to those who enjoyed China Miéville’s The City & the City.

A főhős összeütközésbe kerül két dementorral, akiket azért küldtek a muglik világába, hogy megtámadják az ifjút, akinek varázslatai és trükkjei sértik a varázslók világának szigorú szabályait. Harryt a Roxfortból való száműzetés, sőt varázspálcájának eltörésének a réme fenyegeti. A fiút a Főnix rendje gondjaira bízzák. Ezt a szervezetet sietősen hozzák létre jóindulatú varázslókból és boszorkányokból. A rend megfogadja, hogy legyőzi Voldemortot, de ettől függetlenül Harrynek ismét ki kell állnia személyes próbáját is, anélkül, hogy pontos információi lennének, mi is az igazi szerepe a történetben.

Harry Potter e il prigioniero di Azkaban

In questa nuova, attesissima avventura il piccolo grande apprendista mago Harry Potter deve vedersela con l’assassino pluriomicida Sirius Black, evaso dalla fortezza di Azkaban proprio per ucciderlo e con i Dissennatori, guardie carcerarie che neutralizzano le persone risucchiandone i pensieri positivi e impadronendosi dell’anima… Ma Harry Potter non soccombe alla paura, perché questa è la morale vincente che trasmette ai lettori. Tra mappe segrete, zie volanti e libri che mordono, farà trionfare il Bene. Che soddisfazione!

Harry Potter e l'Ordine della Fenice

Il quarto volume delle avventure di Harry Potter ci ha lasciato con il fiato sospeso: Lord Voldemort è tornato. Che cosa succederà ora che l’Oscuro Signore è di nuovo in pieno possesso dei suoi terrificanti poteri? Quanta morte e distruzione seminerà nel tentativo di riprendere il dominio dei mondo? Sono le stesse domande che si pone Harry Potter, disperatamente segregato — come tutte le estati — nella casa dei suoi zii Babbani, lontano dal mondo magico che gli appartiene. Ma qualcosa è cambiato anche in lui. Ormai quindicenne, lo ritroviamo divorato dalla frustrazione, dalla rabbia e dall’ansia di ribellione tipiche della sua età. In uno dei libri più attesi nella storia della letteratura, J.K. Bowling non cessa di stupirci. Tessendo un’altra stupefacente trama, riesce questa volta a dar voce alle inquietudini dell’adolescenza, ad arricchire il suo già mirabolante universo di nuove creature e nuovi indimenticabili personaggi, e anche a metterci in guardia contro la stupidità del potere e di chi lo usa per combattere il talento, il coraggio, la fantasia e la diversità.

Host

In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human and married to a human man, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbors accepted her, but warily. Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally-or her most dangerous foe. And when it's revealed that her long-gone sister, Rose, is still alive, Thorn must make a choice-and risk her own life in the process.

Hogfather

Who would want to harm Discworld's most beloved icon? Very few things are held sacred in this twisted, corrupt, heartless - and oddly familiar - universe, but the Hogfather is one of them. Yet here it is, Hogswatchnight, that most joyous and acquisitive of times, and the jolly old, red-suited gift-giver has vanished without a trace. And there's something shady going on involving an uncommonly psychotic member of the Assassins' Guild and certain representatives of Ankh-Morpork's rather extensive criminal element. Suddenly Discworld's entire myth system is unraveling at an alarming rate. Drastic measures must be taken, which is why Death himself is taking up the reins of the fat man's vacated sleigh... which, in turn, has Death's level-headed granddaughter, Susan, racing to unravel the nasty, humbuggian mess before the holiday season goes straight to hell and takes everyone along with it.

Humans

Robert J. Sawyer, the award-winning and bestselling writer, hits the peak of his powers in Humans, the second book of The Neanderthal Parallax, his trilogy about our world and parallel one in which it was the Homo sapiens who died out and the Neanderthals who became the dominant intelligent species. This powerful idea allows Sawyer to examine some of the deeply rooted assumptions of contemporary human civilization dramatically, by confronting us with another civilization, just as morally valid, that has made other choices. In Humans, Neanderthal physicist Ponter Boddit, a character you will never forget, returns to our world and to his relationship with geneticist Mary Vaughan, as cultural exchanges between the two Earths begin.

As we see daily life in another present-day world, radically different from ours, in the course of Sawyer's fast-moving story, we experience the bursts of wonder and enlightenment that are the finest pleasures of science fiction. Humans is one of the best SF novels of the year, and The Neanderthal Parallax is an SF classic in the making.

Hybrids

In Hominids, Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer introduced a character readers will never forget: Ponter Boddit, a Neanderthal physicist from a parallel Earth who was whisked from his reality into ours by a quantum-computing experiment gone awry-making him the ultimate stranger in a strange land.

In that book and in its sequel, Humans, Sawyer showed us the Neanderthal version of Earth in loving detail-a tour de force of world-building; a masterpiece of alternate history.

Now, in Hybrids, Ponter Boddit and his Homo sapien lover, geneticist Mary Vaughan, are torn between two worlds, struggling to find a way to make their star-crossed relationship work. Aided by banned Neanderthal technology, they plan to conceive the first hybrid child, a symbol of hope for the joining of their two versions of reality.

But after an experiment shows that Mary's religious faith--something completely absent in Neanderthals - is a quirk of the neurological wiring of Homo sapiens' brains, Ponter and Mary must decide whether their child should be predisposed to atheism or belief. Meanwhile, as Mary's Earth is dealing with a collapse of its planetary magnetic field, her boss, the enigmatic Jock Krieger, has turned envious eyes on the unspoiled Eden that is the Neanderthal world . . . .

Hybrids is filled to bursting with Sawyer's signature speculations about alternative ways of being human, exploding our preconceptions of morality and gender, of faith and love. His Neanderthal Parallax trilogy is a classic in the making, and here he brings it to a stunning, thought-provoking conclusion that's sure to make Hybrids one of the most controversial books of the year.

His Majesty's Dragon

As Napoleon's tenacious infantry rampages across Europe and his armada lies in wait for Nelson's smaller fleet, the war does not rage on land and water alone. Squadrons of aviators swarm the skies - a deadly shield for the cumbersome canon-firing vessels. Raining fire and acid upon their enemies, they engage in a swift, violent combat with flying tooth and claw... for these aviators ride dragons.

Captain Laurence is a satisfied man with a respectable commission aboard the ship Reliant. His career is born from a love for the sea and he takes his duty very seriously

Months before the battle of Trafalgar, on patrol in the Atlantic, The Reliant takes a small French frigate, storm-damaged and possessing a fierce crew unwilling to surrender as easily as they should. On board Laurence finds a dragon egg - a great prize as England is in sore need.

Having spent months on a slow journey from Asia, the egg hatches. A sinewy new-born emerges from the fragmented shell, ignores his harness-bearer, approaches Laurence and changes his life.

Hatchling dragons must be put in a harness immediately otherwise the dragon-young become hard to control - fit only for the breeding colonies. The person chosen to first harness the beast must be an aviator, for the dragon will accept no other captain. The life of an aviator is not a desirable one; reviled by fashionable society, they live hard, lonely lives bound to duty and they frequently die young. Laurence must now join them; duty demands it, though his heart is broken.

But, more astonishing than the dragonet - named Temeraire by Laurence - are the documents found with him, documents addressed to Napoleon from the greatest, most skilled dragon-breeders in the world - the Chinese.

The dragon Temeraire was meant for the Emperor Napoleon himself and promises to grow into no ordinary creature.

Het is zomer en Harry logeert bij de familie Duffeling aan de Ligusterlaan 4. Neef Dirk is onuitstaanbaarder dan ooit tevoren, hij is namelijk op dieet. De familie Wemel redt Harry van een saaie zomer door hem uit te nodigen voor de finale van het WK Zwerkbal. Een bloedstollend uitstapje, zo blijkt en niet in de laatste plaats vanwege een ongekende dosis geheimzinnigheid na afloop van de wedstrijd.

Aardsvijand Voldemort heeft blijkbaar in de tussentijd niet stilgezeten. Een briljant plan moet hem de krachten teruggeven die hij door Harry is kwijtgeraakt. Zich nog niet bewust van deze plannen, popelt Harry om te beginnen aan z’n vierde jaar op Zweinstein. Een volgende uitdaging staat te wachten: een toernooi tussen Zweinstein en twee buitenlandse toverscholen. De Vuurbeker spuwt tot iedereens verbazing ook Harry’s naam uit, wat betekent dat Harry als jongste deelnemer een aantal zware beproevingen zal moeten doorstaan. Heeft Hij Die Niet Genoemd Mag Worden hier iets mee van doen…

Harry Potter wordt voorgelezen door Jan Meng. Ademloos luisteren kinderen en volwassenen naar de stemmen die hij de personages uit de boeken meegeeft, ondertussen fantaserend over duistere tovenaars en sidderende toverspreuken.

Hide Me Among the Graves

Winter, 1862. A malevolent spirit roams the cold and gloomy streets of Victorian London, the vampiric ghost of John Polidori, the onetime physician of the mad, bad and dangerous Romantic poet Lord Byron. Polidori is also the supernatural muse to his niece and nephew, poet Christina Rossetti and her artist brother Dante Gabriel.

But Polidori's taste for debauchery has grown excessive. He is determined to possess the life and soul of an innocent young girl, the daughter of a veterinarian and a reformed prostitute he once haunted. And he has resurrected Dante's dead wife, transforming her into a horrifying vampire. The Rossettis know the time has come — Polidori must be stopped. Joining forces with the girl's unlikely parents, they are plunged into a supernatural London underworld whose existence they never suspected.

These wildly mismatched allies — a strait-laced animal doctor, and ex-prostitute, a poet, a painter, and even the Artful Dodger-like young daughter — must ultimately choose between the banality and constraints of human life and the unholy immortality that Polidori offers. Sweeping from high society to grimy slums, elegant West End salons to pre-Roman catacombs beneath St. Paul's cathedral, Hide Me Among The Graves blends the historical and the supernatural in a dazzling, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride.

Nākotne ir mūsu vidū, reiz rakstīja slavenā kareivja Sveika radītājs Jaroslavs Hašeks, un tie bija prātīgi vārdi. Arī Haks vēsta Tev par tālu nākotni, kas patiesībā ir ļoti tuvu. Mūsu plakano divdimensiju televīziju šeit aizstājusi telpiskā bolovīzija, bet dzīvokļos un transporta līdzekļos tālruņa lomu pilda holokoms — tas ļauj gan sazināties, gan aplūkot sarunu biedru vai viesi pie ārdurvīm un ļauj arī pieslēgties datoriem. Haka nākotnes pasaulē ikviens var noīrēt ne tikai vieglo automašīnu — skimmeri, bet arī nelielu lidaparātu — flailcru. Flaiteri stipri līdzinās taksometriem filmā "Piektais elements", un tos, tāpat kā jebko citu nākotnes pasaulē, pārvalda datori.

Haks vēsta Tev par cilvēkiem, kas spēj "saaugt" ar datoriem. Tie nav lādi datoram pielipuši puiši, kādus Tu varbūt pazīsti, — ar lielām, piesarkušām acīm, bālu seju. Par tiem sacerētas daudzas anekdotes. Reiz kāds datorists esot atradis vardīti, kas teikusi: "Noskūpsti mani, par princesi pārvērtīšos!" Protams, ka datorists skūpstīties nevēlējās, jo nezināja, ko iesākt ar princesi, taču runājoša varde viņam šķita teicama lieta!

Skaistā, tumšmatainā Reivena patiešām atšķiras no šādiem datoristiem. Viņas apziņas impulsi šaujas caur pasaules datortīklu kā nazis caur sviestu, un neviens serveris, ne parole nespēj tiem pretoties! Kāds tur brīnums, ka valdība nolēmusi ikvienu Haku nāvei, pat nezinot, ko īsti prot datorcilvēki ar noslēpumaino Haku gēnu.

Taču Haks ir grāmata arī par saprašanos, jo raibajā komandā, kas cīnās pret Datordrošības policijas (DDP) slepeno nodaļu, bieži vien viss atkarīgs no spējas savaldīt dusmas un īgnumu un palīdzēt draugiem.

Pirms Tu sāc lasīt šo grāmatu, padomā — vai Tu pazīsti kādu sešpadsmitgadīgu meiteni, kas raksta fantastisku piedzīvojumu romānu? Raenona Lasitjē ir tieši tāda meitene, un šī ir viņas grāmata!

Hammered

Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully — he's ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he's asked his friend Atticus O'Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.

One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus's home base of Tempe, Arizona. There's a vampire turf war brewing, and Russian demon hunters who call themselves the Hammers of God are running rampant. Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire consequences, Atticus and Leif journey to the Norse plain of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

Hounded

Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old — when in actuality, he's twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he's hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power — plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish — to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

Historia Del Rey Transparente

En sus andanzas por los burgos y los campos de Francia, Leola se topa con un enigma trágico: trovadores, muchachas o vecinos inician el relato de la historia del Rey Transparente y caen fulminados tras unas pocas frases. Nyneve, que parece estar al tanto del enigma, reacciona siempre con furia ante la sola mención del nombre de ese rey misterioso. El acertijo sólo lo conocerá el lector en las últimas páginas: se trata, en realidad, de una fábula moral que resume la filosofía de toda la novela.

Leola se verá armada caballero a los diecisiete años por la duquesa Dhuoda, una sanguinaria dama que sin embargo la fascina y que esconde una terrible historia. Aprende que la lucha es una danza y consigue batirse con éxito en justas y torneos. Conoce la corte de Leonor de Aquitania y su cortejo de poetas, filósofos e ingeniosos polemistas que debaten sobre el Fino Amor y la alta teología. Se convierte, al fin, en un `Mercader de Sangre`, en un mercenario a sueldo de las clases más bajas de la sociedad.

Los años pasan, y Leola pierde dos dedos de la mano y tiene el cuerpo lleno de cicatrices. Se enamora de Gastón, un filósofo que busca la piedra filosofal, mientras estalla la herejía albigense. La guerra no se hace esperar, y Léola y Nyneve se pondrán al lado de los cátaros, que para ellas representan el lado de la bondad y la cordura.

Hunted

'The door closed with a sickening thud of finality, shutting my friends out and leaving me alone with my enemy, a fallen angel, and the monstrous bird creature his ancient lust had created. Then I did something I'd only done twice before in my life. I fainted.' It's all happening, though Zoey Redbird wishes it wasn't. She has her friends back, which is great. But a dark angel has taken over the House of Night, supported by High Priestess Neferet. Not so great. This leaves Zoey hiding out with the (supposedly friendly) red fledglings in Tulsa's prohibition-era tunnels. The not greatness continues. Zoey has some boy-thoughts to distract her, with a chance to make-up with super-hot-ex Eric. But thoughts of the archer that died, semi-permanently, in her arms also keep distracting her. Then he shows up as Neferet's newest minion. Well, hell. Zoey and friends need a plan to put things right, soon, if she's to keep both head and heart intact.

Heart of Stone

What secrets lie shrouded in darkness?

Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings — not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real — but she could hardly deny what she'd seen . . . and touched.

The mystery man, Alban, was a gargoyle. One of the fabled Old Races who had hidden their existence for centuries. Now he was a murder suspect, and he needed Margrit's help to take the heat off him and find the real killer.

As they worked together to figure out who was framing Alban, Margrit discovered that this man with a heart — and body — of stone made her feel more alive than ever, And as the dead pile up, it's a race against the sunrise to clear Alban's name and keep them both alive . . .

Margrit's been in hot water before, but reentering the underworld brings a new set of problems. And a new set of friends and enemies, including a ruthless vampire mobster, a dragonlord who won't take no for an answer, a band of subversive selkies...oh, and Alban Korund, the sexy gargoyle who got her into this mess — and whose granite-strong touch still haunts her every fantasy...

Hotel pod poległym alpinistą

…Poznajmy najpierw komisarza Petera Glebskego który mimo polsko brzmiącego nazwiska jest niezbyt bystrym przedstawicielem policji jakiegoś bliżej nie określonego alpejskiego państwa. Nie żeby polscy przedstawiciele prawa byli jakoś bardzo bystrzy ale w kryminałach przyzwyczajeni jesteśmy jednak do błyskotliwych śledczych.

Glebsky jest zmęczonym, wielce zasłużonym komisarzem policji który przyjeżdża na długo oczekiwany urlop do jak się wydawało spokojnego miejsca zagubionego gdzieś wysoko w górach. Ma niestety typowe przypadłości policjanta. Dużo pije, trzyma się regulaminu oraz narzeka na szefa (który to notabene wysyła go w to miejsce na urlop). Gdy wiec jeden z gości dwumetrowy Szwed Olaf Andvarforsen zostaje znaleziony w swoim pokoju ze skręconym karkiem przystępuje do kolejnego typowego, rutynowego śledztwa.

Sprawdza ślady, przesłuchuje wszystkich gości, zamyka podejrzanych ale to nie zbyt przybliża go do rozwiązania sprawy. Wszystkich podejrzewa, na dodatek pojawia się dziwna postać Loirevic, cudem uratowana spod lawiny która chce się spotkać z ofiarą. Jest też tajemnicza walizka, oferta przekupstwa, pogróżki i „dobre rady od życzliwych”. Glebsky w związku z tym nie śpi, jeszcze więcej pije i zupełnie nie przyjmuje rad od przyjaciół.

Co gorsza traci czujność. Najpierw wiec solidnie obrywa od przesłuchiwanego oprycha potem twardo trzymając się procedur pozwala na masowe zabójstwo które zostaje dokonane przez przybyłą helikopterem bandę nasłaną przez byłego hitlerowca a obecnie senatora Goldenwassera. Wprawdzie sprawiedliwość dopada przestępców a komisarz Glebsky awansuje, żeni się ma dzieci i wnuki. Na starość jednak wspomina ze smutkiem że nie wszystko tak poszło jak powinno…

H2O

Это книга о свободе.

Одному, чтобы стать свободным, достаточно дома у холодного моря, банковского счета, далекого работодателя и женщины, которая ничего не требует. Другому необходима власть — реальная, экономическая, абсолютная. А у третьей рушится мир под ногами. Однако, мир, построенный на стремлении к свободе рано или поздно обрушится.

Ее можно окрасить в определенный цвет. Взять в кавычки и сделать брендом. А можно попытаться вывести ее формулу.

Самую простую. H2O.

His Master’s Voice

This is a story about a cat and a dog and their undying devotion to their human master. It doesn’t have anything in common with the family films you have seen. It is a masterpiece you have to listen to.

Cat with armor in the city of the dead. Dog chase after the Cat and a story told with epic esoteric language. The master was a god. The dog and the cat learn the master’s words from the small animal in their dreams and set out on a mission to rescue their master.

The story is fantastic and make you interested in more, the world is a singularity one where humans have evolved and can make copies of their own minds. Unrestricted copy led to the creation of Plurals some of which evolved to transhuman civilizations out among the stars. Now human law limit every human to one copy at a time. The master breaks the law and is sentenced to a virtual prison. It’s from there the animals have to rescue him.

The language in the story is poetic and it sounds fantastic coming from someone not born to the language.

The story hints on things that might be in Hannu’s upcoming novel. There is a war going on among the stars and its there the small animal are going, to the Big Dogs.

The story is also amusing and fun imagine the dog become a musician to earn money and the cat had a gladiator career that lasted a while.

Hunted

Edward York is an illegal clone, genetically engineered for perfection — but something went wrong. His twin sister, Ambassador Samantha York, is a gorgeous genius, but the physically perfect Edward is condemned by his faulty brain to service in the human Navy’s Outward Fleet Explorer Corps, a collection of misfits who call themselves the Expendables, and with good reason. After Edward fails to save his sister’s life on the war-torn planet Troyen, he is sent away on a Navy starship in which all other crew and passengers die in the same instant, leaving Edward alone — and trapped with unknown, destructive nanotechnology. If that isn’t trouble enough, his fate is mysteriously tied to that of Troyen’s native race, the Mandasar, in a complex interstellar web of conspiracy and treachery. And his only allies may be five young Mandasar; a human-alien symbiont with motives of her own; and the most infamous Expendable in the Corps, the hated Admiral Festina Ramos.

In addition to Hunted, James Alan Gardner has written two previous novels featuring Festina Ramos, Expendable and Vigilant; his novel Commitment Hour is set in the same universe.

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf

Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble. For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question. If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . .

So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who's tall, dark, and part of underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack.

Healer's Choice

The author of Spider-Touched and Ghostland continues her tale of a postapocalyptic world where the afterlife has come to life...

Born into a world of violence and paid-for sex, Rebekka longs for a family of her own and dreams of freeing those trapped in the shapeshifter brothels of the red zone. A witch's prophecy claims she'll one day use her gift to heal the Weres made outcast by their mixed human-animal forms.

But Rebekka knows that everything comes at a cost. A plea to save five children sends her into the arms of Aryck, a Jaguar enforcer—and into territory controlled by pure Weres. It's a place where humans and outcasts aren't welcomed, where plague threatens and the fate of the Weres hangs in the balance. And where the choices Rebekka and Aryck make are paid for with their hearts...if not their souls.

Half the Blood of Brooklyn

“One of the most remarkable prose stylists to emerge from the noir tradition in this century.” – Stephen King

Starred Review. Huston's third Joe Pitt vampire novel (after Already Dead and No Dominion) takes his Manhattan-based hard-boiled hero on a dangerous trip into the undead communities across the bridge in Brooklyn. The various vampire clans in New York are on the brink of conflict. Leadership has fallen apart, and to make things worse, a Van Helsing is running amok and has recently murdered a longtime supplier of contraband blood. Worst of all, Pitt's AIDS-stricken girlfriend, Evie, is in the hospital failing fast. Once again, he's faced with an almost classical dilemma: infecting her with the vampire virus will destroy the illness that's killing her, but she'll be a vampire. Sent to Brooklyn to meet with a rogue clan of carnival freak vampires, Pitt ends up battling a group of radical Jewish bloodsuckers called the lost tribe of Gibeah. As always, Huston's formidable writing chops are on full display: his action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous.

His Masters Voice

The “Back Cover” information for this book is quite misleading. This is only “science fiction” in the most literal sense of the phrase — it is fiction about science. The single fantastical element is only theorized — a Sender of the message in question. The book is cerebral in nature, which makes me question why exactly it is referred to as a “thriller” on the back cover. . though there is a tension in the book, like in most good literature, I would not choose to describe it as a “thriller”. The most thrilling thing about this book is that there exists an author who is willing to explore topics as diverse as psychology, morality, linguistics, physics, mathematics, ethics, and philosophy in one book. This is a more thoughtful, realistic, and rewarding book than others in the same vein such as Sagan’s Contact.

Год 2115, который не наступил. Мир, который был уничтожен. Люди — потомки тех поколений, которые в глубине убежищ рождались и умирали, никогда не увидев солнечного света. Но восьмидесятилетняя ядерная зима закончилась, и узники убежищ вышли на поверхность, чтобы получить в наследство жестокий мир, где свирепствуют смертельные болезни, хищники и безжалостные кланы Диких, идет тайная война между военными группировками за обладание научным и технологическим наследием прошлого, чудом уцелевшим после Катастрофы. Мир третьего ледникового периода, населенный мутантами, на которых охотится человек по имени Зих. И так уж обернется, что пути Зиха и таинственных "сборщиков пепла" — бойцов элитного постъядерного спецназа HEAVEN, — однажды пересекутся. У них разные цели, но цена победы или поражения велика — жизнь. Жизнь одного-единственного человека, и жизни всех, кто пережил ядерную зиму.

Heart of Darkness

Meriel Owen, next in line to control the largest organization of witches in the country, is asked to investigate the owner of a notorious club reportedly siphoning magic from the font of the Clan. It’s a direct violation of the Clan Code of Conduct, but one look at Dominic Bright and Meriel’s willing to make a deal. One taste of the sexually feral outlaw witch, and she’s eager to go further: he’s her bond mate, a legal conduit into the world of Clan witches and their magic.


Playing by the rules isn’t Dominic’s style, but bonding with Meriel — night after explosive night — is. However, Meriel has unwittingly invited someone else into her world: Dominic’s mother, a dangerous and poisonously influential magic addict whose lust for death and power corrupts all she touches. Now her shadow is closing in on Meriel, her Clan, and the man Meriel loves, and it’s casting them all into the inescapable heart of darkness.

Howling Legion

No one said fighting monsters was going to be easy …

You can't see them, but they're here: hiding in the pools of shadow outside a Chicago burger joint …wreaking havoc in Kansas City …feeding in sleazy "blood brothels" that cater to humans who itch to get bitten.

Now he's a "Skinner," a member of an ancient secret society of warriors entrusted with keeping the terror at bay. Monsters once chained to the wilderness are suddenly free and descending, razor claws ripping, on the unsuspecting city. No one knows what's coming - but Cole and his seductive partner, Paige, will be the first to dive into the meat grinder.

Heavy Planet

Discover MESKLIN — Gravity: 3g at the equator, 700g at the poles!

Hal Clement is a Grand Master of SF, and the one most associated with the subgenre of hard SF. From his classic stories in Astounding in the 1940s through his novels of the 1950s and on to the recent Half Life, he has made a lasting impression on SF readers, and on writers, too. For many of them, Clement’s work is the model of how to write hard SF, and this book contains the reasons why. Here are all the tales of bizarre, unforgettable Mesklin: the classic novel Mission of Gravity and its sequel, Star Light, as well as the short stories “Under” and “Lecture Demonstration.” Also included is “Whirligig World,” the famous essay Clement published in Astounding in 1953. It describes the rigorous process he used to create his intriguingly plausible high-gravity planet, with its odd flattened shape, its day less than eighteen minutes long, and its many-limbed, noble natives. Come to Mesklin and learn why The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction called Mission of Gravity “one of the best loved novels in SF.”

Hibridos

Un experimento científico hace posible la inesperada interacción entre dos universos paralelos, con la salvedad de que, en uno de ellos, la especie humana que ha predominado son los Neanderthales y no los Cromagnones, como ha ocurrido en nuestro mundo. Ponter Boddit y su hombre-compañero Adikor Huld, físicos neanderthales, han abierto un puente entre dos universos dando lugar a una sorprendente comparación entre culturas radicalmente distintas. Una de esas diferencias es la percepción del hecho religioso, del todo ausente en los neanderthales.

En Híbridos, unos científicos de nuestro mundo especulan con la idea de que la propensión a tener creencias y experiencias religiosas podría provenir de una mutación genética que no se había producido en los neanderthales, pero sí en los cromagnones. El neanderthal Ponter Boddit y su amada Homo Sapiens, Mary Vaughan, desean tener una hija; la moderna tecnología neanderthal de reproducción asistida se lo permite, pero hay que tomar una importante decisión: ¿qué será mejor para su hija, tener creencias religiosas o no tenerlas?

Hadie srdce

Fantázia, dobrodružstvo… Nebolo hádam ešte obdobia v dejinách ľudstva, ktoré by dávalo toľko živnej pôdy pre nekonečný rozlet tvorivej ľudskej fantázie, ako je tomu dnes. A nebolo ani obdobia, v ktorom by sa tak rýchlo menil obsah pojmu dobrodružstvo. Najmarkantnejšie to vidíme v súčasnej sovietskej fantastickej a dobrodružnej literatúre, z ktorej neveľký výber predkladáme slovenskému čitateľovi. Prvé tri poviedky našej knižky sú venované problematike medzihviezdnych a medziplanetárnych letov. Zem — písal svojho času K. Ciolkovskij — je kolíska ľudstva. No nemožno večne žiť iba v kolíske. Cesta človeka do vesmíru, spôsob života v kozmických lodiach, úporné hľadania seberovných bytostí v nekonečnom priestore a osobitosti stretnutia s nimi — to sú najpálčivejšie otázky, ktoré priťahujú nielen sovietskych spisovateľov-fantastov, ale i milióny pozemšťanov z polovice dvadsiateho storočia. Popri dnes už po celom svete známom I. Jefremovovi (slovenský čitateľ ho pozná z Hmloviny Andromedy) predstavujú sa nám tu doteraz neznámi mladí autori V. Žuravľovová (Belasá planéta) a V. Saparin (Nebeská kulu). Ich fantastické poviedky prekvapujú bohatou umeleckou invenciou. Prvé stretnutie pozemšťanov s Venušanmi (Nebeská kulu), plné dramatizmu a neočakávaných obratov, netápá v abstraktných sférach, je podané tak, akoby šlo o autentický príbeh, reálne a umelecky pôsobivo, ba so zaujímavým autorovým pokusom načrtnúť psychológiu nezemského človeka. Tak isto príbeh dvojčlennej posádky polorozbitej medziplanetárnej lode (Belasá planéta), ktorej sa po ťažkých útrapách podarí pristáť na Marse, popri všetkej „vedeckosti“ udivuje živou obrazotvornosťou mladej sovietskej autorky. Poviedky V. Savčenka (Prebudenie profesora Berna) a V. Saparina (Posledný pilot) sme zaradili vedľa seba, pretože, ako sa nám zdá, navzájom sa doplňujú. Kým prvá poviedka polemizuje s „teóriami“ o nevyhnutnej atómovej záhubě ľudstva a vštepuje vieru v jeho šťastnú budúcnosť, Posledný pilot je zasa pokusom nahliadnuť do tejto budúcnosti, do krásneho, plnokrvného života budúcich pokolení. Knižku uzatvárajú dve rozsiahlejšie poviedky I. Jefremova Havrania jurta a Afaneor, Acharchellenova dcéra. Tematicky čerpajú z oblastí navzájom vzdialených (na jednej strane dramatický príbeh sovietskeho inžiniera, ktorý s nasadením vlastného života nachádza bohaté rudné nálezisko, a na druhej strane obraz šľachetného saharského Tuarega, čo zachráni francúzsku karavánu, odsúdenú na smrť, a vymôže si za to cestu do Sovietskeho sväzu), obidve sú však charakteristické pre súčasnú sovietsku dobrodružnú literatúru: nejde v nich o hromadenie vonkajších efektov, ale o činy, ktorých pohnútkami a konečným cieľom je služba kolektívu, ľudu, pokroku.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Say you’ve spent the first 10 years of your life sleeping under the stairs of a family who loathes you. Then, in an absurd, magical twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl, a phoenix-feather wand, and jellybeans that come in every flavor, including strawberry, curry, grass, and sardine. Not only that, but you discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to young Harry Potter in J. K. Rowling’s enchanting, funny debut novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. In the nonmagic human world—the world of “Muggles”—Harry is a nobody, treated like dirt by the aunt and uncle who begrudgingly inherited him when his parents were killed by the evil Voldemort. But in the world of wizards, small, skinny Harry is famous as a survivor of the wizard who tried to kill him. He is left only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined sensibilities, and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he’s quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoiled, piglike cousin Dudley.

A mysterious letter, delivered by the friendly giant Hagrid, wrenches Harry from his dreary, Muggle-ridden existence: “We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.” Of course, Uncle Vernon yells most unpleasantly, “I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!” Soon enough, however, Harry finds himself at Hogwarts with his owl Hedwig . . . and that’s where the real adventure—humorous, haunting, and suspenseful—begins. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, first published in England as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, continues to win major awards in England. So far it has won the National Book Award, the Smarties Prize, the Children’s Book Award, and is short-listed for the Carnegie Medal, the U. K. version of the Newbery Medal.

Hex Hall

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.


By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.


As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

High Cotton: Selected Stories of Joe R. Lansdale

Twenty-one stories for mature audiences only!

This collection of Joe R. Lansdale stories represents the best of the “Lansdale” genre—a strange mixture of dark crime, even darker humor, and adventure tales. Though varied in setting and theme, all the stories are pure Lansdale—eerie, amusing, and occasionally horrific. In “The Pit,” modern gladiators square off against one another using Roman methods. An alternate-history tale called “Trains Not Taken” shows Buffalo Bill as an ambassador and Wild Bill Hickok as a clerk. Lansdale’s love of large lizards and humor are evident in the stories “Godzilla’s Twelve Step Program” and “Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland.”

The career of Joe R. Lansdale has spanned more than twenty-seven years, in which period he has written over two hundred short stories. This collection is the best of these. As Lansdale states in his Introduction, ". these stories are the ones I think best reflect my work." Some of these are obviously horrific ab initio: others, the realization will slowly, surely creep upon one. Others will visit alternate history, humor, or dark crime. Mixing the impossible, the improbable, and the never-before-thought-of, Lansdale uses his innate East Texas storytelling abilities to perfection. As an added bonus, each story starts with an introduction by Lansdale, describing the story-behind-the-story.

Heroes R Us

First published in paperback as 'Herogiri' by Random House India, 2010.

What happens when fate chooses an ordinary man for an extraordinary mission?

Arnab Bannerjee has little excitement in his life other than tracking down missing books as the Assistant Librarian in a small college in Delhi. All that changes one day when he is beaten and left for dead after a robbery. Arnab awakens to discover that he has developed fantastic superhuman powers and he tries to master his new¬found powers and to use them for good. As a hooded superhero he takes to the streets on a one-man crusade against injustice. However he soon realizes that in a society where the only power that matters comes from having money or the right connections, one man, even a superhero, can make little difference.

When he embarks on a final, desperate mission, he realizes that to succeed, he has to become a part of the very system he loathes by tapping into a motley set of allies such as the Minister who wants to use his powers to rig elections, the corrupt policeman who shot Arnab for exposing him and the corporate tycoon who wants to sign him up as a brand ambassador!

At one level, Heroes R Us seeks to entertain with a delightfully contemporary take on the superhero genre, and at another level it asks the provocative question of whether in the dark and corrupt times we live in, there is any place left for heroes. Slumdog Millionaire meets Spiderman in this exciting novel that will entertain and make you think at the same time.

But her aunt's feud with the emperor lands Sasha at university, where she becomes one of its first female students — an experiment, she suspects, designed more to prove female unsuitability for such pursuits than offer them education. The pressure intensifies when Sasha's only friends — Chinese students — start disappearing, and she begins to realize that her new British companion, Jack, has bigger secrets than she can imagine! Sasha and Jack find themselves trying to stop a war brewing between the three empires. The only place they can turn to for help is the Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace, newly founded by the Taiping rebels. Pursued by the terrifying Dame Florence Nightingale of the British Secret Service, Sasha and Jack escape across Siberia via train to China. Sasha discovers that Jack is not quite the person she thought he was…but then again, neither is she.

Hammered

Once Jenny Casey was somebody’s daughter. Once she was somebody’s enemy. Now the former Canadian special forces warrior lives on the hellish streets of Hartford, Connecticut, in the year 2062. Racked with pain, hiding from the government she served, running with a crime lord so she can save a life or two, Jenny is a month shy of fifty, and her artificially reconstructed body has started to unravel. But she is far from forgotten. A government scientist needs the perfect subject for a high-stakes project and has Jenny in his sights. Suddenly Jenny Casey is a pawn in a furious battle, waged in the corridors of the Internet, on the streets of battered cities, and in the complex wirings of her half-man-made nervous system. And she needs to gain control of the game before a brave new future spins completely out of control.

¡Hagan sitio! ¡Hagan sitio!

Lunes, 9 de agosto de 1999. El siglo está en sus postrimerías. Nueva York posee una población de 35 millones de seres humanos. Viven hacinados en las casas, en los cementerios de coches que en otro tiempo fueron aparcamientos, en los viejos barcos anclados a orillas del Hudson, en los depósitos militares cerrados hace tiempo... y algunos ni siquiera tienen un techo donde guarecerse y viven simplemente en las calles. El petróleo se ha agotado, los vegetales se están agotando, la carne es un artículo de súper lujo, la gente vive a base de galletas y sucedáneos extraídos del mar, el agua está racionada, y cualquier accidente puede romper este precario equilibrio. Y en Nueva York vive el policía Andrew Rusch, cuyo trabajo es investigar los crímenes que se producen diariamente en la ciudad, pero también cargar contra las muchedumbres que simplemente piden comida y agua.

Peor en ese miserable mundo, que puede ser el nuestro dentro de muy pocos años, en el que todo escasea excepto la necesidad, ni siquiera la policía tiene efectivos suficientes para llevar a cabo su trabajo.

Hexbound

Lily Parker is new to St. Sophia’s School for Girls, but she’s already learned that magic can be your best friend…or your worst enemy. They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Turns out, even a little magic can turn you to the dark side. That’s why Lily has to learn how to control her newly discovered paranormal abilities, on top of avoiding the snobs who think they run her school, nursing a crush on a cute sophomore with a big, werewolf-y secret, and fighting the good fight with her best friend Scout as they take on Chicago’s nastiest nightlife—including the tainted magic users known as Reapers. Then Lily’s invited to a private meeting with Sebastian. He’s hot, powerful, and offering to help her harness the magic flowing in her veins in a way no one else can. He’s also a Reaper. Lily can’t hide her suspicions. But she’ll soon find out that the line between good and evil isn’t always clear…

Het spel der tronen

Ver voorbij de machtige ijsmuur die de noordgrens van het koninkrijk sinds mensenheugenis beschermt, roert zich een vergeten vijand. Maar ieders blik is naar het zuiden gericht: naar het van intriges vergeven hof. De macht van de koning is tanende, zijn Hand is een verdachte dood gestorven en velen zijn uit op eigen gewin.

Toch zijn er nog trouwe onderdanan. De Starks van Winterfell, hard en onverzettelijk zoals hun bevroren domein, zijn niet de minsten van hen. Als de koning Eddard Stark benoemt tot zijn nieuwe Hand, dreigt dit zowel zijn familie als het rijk te splijten. Edelvrouwen en moordenaars, soldaten en tovenaars, vogelvrijen en bastaards — niemand kan afzijdig blijven in het dodelijkste aller conflicten: het spel der tronen.

Hominids

The Hugo Award Winner–2003

Hominids examines two unique species of people. We are one of those species; the other is the Neanderthals of a parallel world where they became the dominant intelligence. The Neanderthal civilization has reached heights of culture and science comparable to our own, but with radically different history, society and philosophy.

Ponter Boddit, a Neanderthal physicist, accidentally pierces the barrier between worlds and is transferred to our universe. Almost immediately recognized as a Neanderthal, but only much later as a scientist, he is quarantined and studied, alone and bewildered, a stranger in a strange land. But Ponter is also befriended—by a doctor and a physicist who share his questing intelligence, and especially by Canadian geneticist Mary Vaughan, a woman with whom he develops a special rapport.

Ponter’s partner, Adikor Huld, finds himself with a messy lab, a missing body, suspicious people all around and an explosive murder trial. How can he possibly prove his innocence when he has no idea what actually happened to Ponter?

Hvězdy, ty studené hračky

Profesionální kosmický pilot Petr Chrumov se vrací se svým nákladním raketoplánem z hlubin vesmíru zpět na zemi. Už na cestě zjistí, že neletí jako obvykle sám, ale že má společnost — Cizáka z civilizace počtářů. Tento reptiloid způsobí, že místo na kosmdromu přistanou s pozemským pilotem a jeho strojem na opuštěné silnici na ruském Dálném východě. Nouzové přistání se zdaří, ale v nastalém zmatku Cizák zmizí. Posléze se opět vynoří ve společnosti Chrumovova dědečka, významného odborníka na mimozemské civilizace. Starého pána i mladého pilota přiměje, aby odcizili pozemský raketoplán a s pomocí civilizace počtářů i dalších „slabých“ ras pak zlikvidovali blíže nespecifikované nebezpečí, hrozící planetě Zemi. I tento příběh má všechny přednosti Lukjaněnkovy tvorby — strhující děj, svižné dialogy, téměř detektivní zápletku a nečekané rozuzlení.

Hozsánna néked, Leibowitz!

A Leibowitz-rend apátságában a Memorabíliákat gyűjtik, a Tűzözön előtti civilizáció becses írott emlékeit. Nem veszélytelen hivatás ez, hiszen a tudományellenes közhangulat épp a tudományt, a kultúrát okolja az új nyomorúságért.

A szerzet a kőkorszaki körülmények között is jó munkát végez. A nemzedékről nemzedékre átmenekített és megőrzött források révén az emberiség újra megalkotja az „első” gőzgépet, az „első” izzólámpát, majd természetesen az „első” atommáglyát.

És 1200 évvel a Tűzözön után végre ismét elhárulnak a technikai akadályok az újabb Tűzözön elől…

Az először 1959-ben megjelent (és 1988-ban magyarul is közreadott) amerikai regény valóságos mérföldkő a sci-fi irodalom történetében, műfajának klasszikusa. Szerzője, Walter M. Miller (1923–1996) szinte nem is írt egyebet. Hiába próbálkozott, képtelen volt tökéletes művét felülmúlni. Könyvét második világháborús élményei ihlették: bombázótiszt volt az itáliai hadszíntéren. Ötvenhárom bevetésen vett részt, ő találta telibe a Benedek-rendiek ősi apátságát. A tragédia súlya egész életében nyomasztotta. Önkezével vetett véget életének.

Harry Potter e il principe mezzosangue

Alla fine dello scorso volume, abbiamo lasciato Harry Potter sconvolto, solo e preoccupato. Il suo amato padrino Sirius Black è morto, e le parole di Albus Silente sulla profezia gli confermano che lo scontro con Lord Voldemort è ormai inevitabile. Niente è più come prima: l’ultimo legame con la sua famiglia è troncato, perfino Hogwarts non è più la dimora accogliente dei primi anni, mentre Voldemort è più forte, crudele e disumano che mai. Harry stesso sa di essere cambiato. La frustrazione e il senso di impotenza dei quindici anni hanno ceduto il posto a una fermezza e a una determinazione diverse, più adulte. Nella sesta e penultima avventura di Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling arricchisce il suo scenario di indizi e segreti stupefacenti; sospetti e verità che non offrono risposte ma moltiplicano gli enigmi; nuovi personaggi e nuove magie ma anche inattese rivelazioni su personaggi già noti. Mescolando la suspense dell’indagine con la passione dell’amore adolescente, Harry Potter e il Principe Mezzosangue avvince il lettore e lo lascia, stregato, in attesa dell’ultimo atto.

In the almost two centuries since the discovery of the first inter-universal portal, Arcana has explored scores of other worlds . . . all of them duplicates of their own. Multiple Earths, virgin planets with a twist, because the "explorers" already know where to find all of their vast, untapped natural resources. Worlds beyond worlds, effectively infinite living space and mineral wealth.And in all that time, they have never encountered another intelligent species. No cities, no vast empires, no civilizations and no equivalent of their own dragons, gryphons, spells, and wizards.But all of that is about to change. It seems there is intelligent life elsewhere in the multiverse. Other human intelligent life, with terrifying new weapons and powers of the mind . . . and wizards who go by the strange title of "scientist."

Homeward Bound

With his epic novels of alternate history, Harry Turtledove shares a stunning vision of what might have been—and what might still be—if one moment in history were changed. In the WorldWar and Colonization series, an ancient, highly advanced alien species found itself locked in a bitter struggle with a distant, rebellious planet—Earth. For those defending the Earth, this all-out war for survival supercharged human technology, made friends of foes, and turned allies into bitter enemies. For the aliens known as the Race, the conflict has yielded dire consequences. Mankind has developed nuclear technology years ahead of schedule, forcing the invaders to accept an uneasy truce with nations that possess the technology to defend themselves. But it is the Americans, with their primitive inventiveness, who discover a way to launch themselves through distant space—and reach the Race’s home planet itself. Now—in the twenty-first century—a few daring men and women embark upon a journey no human has made before. Warriors, diplomats, traitors, and exiles—the humans who arrive in the place called Home find themselves genuine strangers on a strange world, and at the center of a flash point with terrifying potential. For their arrival on the alien home world may drive the enemy to make the ultimate decision—to annihilate an entire planet, rather than allow the human contagion to spread. It may be that nothing can deter them from this course.

Hammer And Anvil

Videssos was beset by enemies. A pretender held the throne--a despot who cared little that barbarian hordes and rival realms carved away at his empire, so long as the wealth and booty of the land satisfied his unbridled appetites.

Few stood against him. And those few soon found their heads on pikes.

Only one name held hope for freedom: Maniakes. And from his exile on the very edge of the civilized world, young Maniakes took up the challenge, rallied his forces, and sailed off to topple the tyrant.

But the tyrant would use every means at his disposal--fair or most hideously foul--to destroy the crusading upstart. And even if Maniakes could stay alive, he would still have to pull together a battered, divided land as well as fend off a host of enemies--and thwart the former friend who had become his empire's most deadly foe!

Hyperpilositis

«Наконец, делом занялись газеты. „Нью-Йорк таймс“ поместила сначала небольшую заметку в середине номера. Спустя неделю она посвятила вопросу целую колонку на первой странице второй части, а потом сообщения начали появляться на первых страницах газет. Обычно было что-то вроде: „Доктор такой-то считает, что прокатившаяся по стране эпидемия hyperpilositis, или сверхволосатости (Красивое слово, верно? Жаль, что не помню фамилии врача, его придумавшего) вызвана тем, этим, пятым или десятым“.

В феврале пришлось отменить наш ежегодный бал, поскольку почти никто из студентов не смог уговорить своих девушек прийти на него. По той же причине значительно снизилась посещаемость кинотеатров. Всегда можно было получить хорошее место, даже около восьми. Однажды я прочел в газете забавное сообщение, что прекращены съемки фильма «Тарзан и люди-осьминоги», поскольку актеры действовали в нем в плавках и оказалось, что они вынуждены каждые несколько дней стричься и брить все тело, чтобы их не путали с гориллами.»

Hypérion

Hypérion marquera durablement la science-fiction. Ce splendide roman a reçu le prix Hugo aux Etats-Unis et son auteur s’annonce un rival dangereux pour Stephen King lui-même.

Hypérion est un livre-univers, comme le Dune de Frank Herbert, un roman d’aventures haletant mais aussi un exploit littéraire impressionnant qui ressuscite dans l’avenir le poète anglais John Keats et fait écho à son oeuvre majeure, Hypérion.

Au 28° siècle, sur la planète Hypérion, les dangers s’amoncellent. Celui de la guerre avec l’approche de la flottes des Extros en perpétuel conflit avec l’Hégémonie. Celui du gritche, figure mythologique et meurtrière que révère l’Eglise des Templiers. Celui de l’ouverture des Tombeaux du Temps qui dérivent de l’avenir vers le passé à la rencontre d’une imprévisible catastrophe.

Dans l’espoir de sauver Hypérion et d’accomplir leurs destins suspendus, sept pèlerins se dirigent ensemble vers le sanctuaire du gritche. Il y a le père Lenar Hoyt, prêtre catholique, qui a vu l’enfer ; le colonel Kassad, dit le Boucher de Bressia, à la recherche d’un rêve ; Martin Silenus, le poète, qui a connu la Vieille Terre et perdu les mots ; Brawne Lamia, la belle détective, qui a aimé un John Keats synthétique : le Consul qui a régné sur Hypérion ; Sol Weintraub, l’érudit, dont la fille perd des années ; et le templier Het Masteen, qui garde ses secrets.

Autant d’énigmes, autant d’histoires, qu’ils choisissent de conter avant d’affronter les labyrinthes d’Hypérion. Autant de styles différents.

Hotel U mrtveho alpinisty

Autoři si zaspekulovali nad tím, co všechno by se mohlo stát, kdyby obyvatelé jiné, technicky vyspělejší planety vyslali na Zem své pozorovatele, kteří by se vzhledem i chováním připodobnili standardu našich splečenských vrstev. Díky zlomyslné náhodě první kontakt navážou se členy zločineckého gangu, který začne plně využívat jejich schopností. Naštěstí brzy prohlédnu, ale když se snaží vymknout z područí bandy, jsou pronásledováni a posledním útočištěm před odletem na vlastní planetu se jim stane hotel U mrtvého alpinisty, vysoko v horách, v uzavřeném údolí, navíc v posledních dnech odříznutém od okolného světa lavinovým závalem.

Zde tedy začíná vlastní zápletka, do níž je vtaženo i několik náhodných hostů hotelu, především detektiv Glebski, který zde chtěl strávit dva týdny zaslouženého odpočinku a zatím se stává ústřední postavou děje, v němž se proplétají dvě tajemné historie, jedna humorná a neškodná, druhá dramatičtější a tragická, v němž si téměř každý na něco s něčím hraje, kde jedni jsou zaskakováni činností druhých, logika lidí se kříží s logikou mimozemšťanů — a s touto spoustou záhad, tajemství a nedorozumění se marně potýká se svou profesionální rutinou náš nešťastný hrdina.

Heaven's Devils

For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight alongside a slew of mysteriously docile criminals — and a few dubious military leaders. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.

For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the origins of the enduring friendship between the young upstart Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay. Watch as they battle on the front lines of a fierce interplanetary war and bear witness to the Confederacy's rank corruption — corruption so reprehensible that it rains immeasurable death and destruction upon the government's own people.

Hyperion

Dopo l’Egira, nell’universo è stata creata una federazione di pianeti: l’Egemonia dell’Uomo. Ma al di fuori della sua giurisdizione esiste un pianeta chiamato Hyperion. E su Hyperion è in attesa una creatura metallica, sanguinaria, dotata di poteri semidivini: lo Shrike. Alcuni lo adorano. Altri lo temono. Altri ancora hanno giurato di distruggerlo. Lo Shrike li attende tutti, amici e nemici, nella Valle delle Tombe del Tempo, dove enormi strutture cupe provenienti dal futuro si ritraggono verso il passato recando oscuri messaggi. Alla vigilia dell’Armageddon, con l’intera galassia in guerra, sette pellegrini si mettono in viaggio verso le Tombe, alla ricerca delle risposte agli enigmi delle loro vite. Ognuno di loro custodisce un terribile segreto e una disperata speranza, e ognuno è disposto a morire, per portare a termine la ricerca. E forse dovrà morire, perche lo Shrike uccide tutti i pellegrini che gli si avvicinano… meno uno. E il superstite vedrà realizzato il desiderio che più gli sta a cuore. Per prepararsi all’incontro con lo Shrike, ogni personaggio racconta agli altri la propria storia, la storia che l’ha portato su Hyperion. E con il procedere dei racconti ci viene rivelata una cultura interstellare d’incredibile complessità e varietà, che diventa a poco a poco sempre più reale e coinvolgente.

Hell Bent

Instead of the deadly force it once was, magic is now a useless novelty. But not for Shame Flynn and Terric Conley, “breakers” who have the gift for reverting magic back to its full-throttle power. In the magic-dense city of Portland, Oregon, keeping a low profile means keeping their gifts quiet. After three years of dealing with disgruntled magic users, Shame and Terric have had enough of politics, petty magic, and, frankly, each other. It’s time to call it quits.

When the government discovers the breakers’ secret—and its potential as a weapon—Shame and Terric suddenly become wanted men, the only ones who can stop the deadly gift from landing in the wrong hands. If only a pair of those wrong hands didn’t belong to a drop-dead-gorgeous assassin Shame is falling for as if it were the end of the world. And if he gets too close to her, it very well could be....

Highrise Hell
Crash II: Highrise Hell — A post-apocalyptic / dystopian thriller.

WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS SCENES OF BRUTAL VIOLENCE. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

21st century society has been rendered obsolete and London has fallen into the hands of violent gangs.

George had begun to question his membership in the gang of murderers and rapists but now that blood coats his hands, he can feel his humanity slipping away.

All he wants to do is leave, but the leader of the gang is his psychotic brother-in-law and the only one who knows where George’s pregnant sister is being kept. With just a few weeks left until she gives birth, George knows that leaving the gang now would mean condemning her and the child to the life he wants to escape.

Not sure if his sister even is still alive but more than aware of the truck full of innocent women suffering as the behaviour of the gang plummets to new levels of depravity, George questions just how far he can let it go—or who he should try to save—before he walks away.

With time running out, George needs to make a decision between his family and his conscience.

Whichever decision he makes, someone will suffer.


What the reviewers say:

A scary look into what could happen to this World

Once I started I couldn’t put it down

This is one of the best post apocalyptic books I have read and I look forward to the next volume.

I read this book in one sitting—couldn’t put it down. This guy really has a way with words, I will be looking up some more of his writing next! Highly recommend!

A new job and a few therapists later, things look much brighter. Especially when a challenging new project presents itself — to catalogue the late M. H. Mason's wildly eccentric cache of antique dolls and puppets. Rarest of all, she'll get to examine his elaborate displays of posed, costumed and preserved animals, depicting bloody scenes from the Great War. Catherine can't believe her luck when Mason's elderly niece invites her to stay at Red House itself, where she maintains the collection until his niece exposes her to the dark message behind her uncle's "Art." Catherine tries to concentrate on the job, but Mason's damaged visions begin to raise dark shadows from her own past. Shadows she'd hoped therapy had finally erased. Soon the barriers between reality, sanity and memory start to merge and some truths seem too terrible to be real… in The House of Small Shadows by Adam Nevill.

In de beslotenheid van de inktzwarte duisternis van de verschrikkelijke Toren van de Hoge Magie in Palanthas, in gezelschap van naamloze wezens van het kwaad, weeft de magiër Raistlin Majere een plan om Tachisis, Koningin van de Duisternis, te verslaan en haar plek in te nemen als heerser van het kwaad.

Crysania, een beeldschone volgelinge van Paladijn, ziet het als haar lotsbestemming om Raistlin uit de duisternis te leiden. Ze is blind voor de kwade plannen die in zijn hoofd vaste vorm aannemen, en hij lokt haar met bovenmenselijk geduld in zijn zorgvuldig opgezette valstrik. Zodra tot hem doordringt wat zijn tweelingbroer Raistlin van plan is, reist de bezorgde Caramon terug in de tijd naar de gedoemde stad Istar, in de dagen vlak voor de Catastrofe. Daar, vergezeld door Tasselhof, die geen ogenblik van zijn zijde wijkt, spant Caramon zich tot het uiterste in om Raistlins ziel van het duister te redden.

Hunter

One of Hollywood's hottest action-film writers, James Byron Huggins is a master at keeping the action rolling and the pages turning. Here, the author of Cain ("may be the thriller of the year" — BookPage), unleashes a lightning-quick tale that pits a man born out of his time against the future's deadliest creation.


Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone — or anything — on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.

It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he'll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.

Hunt and run

When the hunted become hunters…

Ronon Dex is a mystery. His past is a closed book and he likes it that way. But when the Atlantis team triggers a trap that leaves them stranded on a hostile world, only Ronon’s past can save them — if it doesn’t kill them first.

As the gripping tale unfolds, we return to Ronon’s earliest days as a Runner and meet the charismatic leader who transformed him into a hunter of Wraith. But grief and rage can change the best of men and it soon becomes clear that those who Ronon once considered brothers-in-arms are now on the hunt — and that the Atlantis team are their prey.

Unless Ronon can out hunt the hunters, Colonel Sheppard’s team will fall victim to the vengeance of the V’rdai.

Homecoming

Atlantis has returned to Earth. The team members have dispersed and are beginning new lives far from the dangers of the Pegasus galaxy. They think the adventure is over.

They're wrong.

With the help of General Jack O'Neill, Atlantis rises once more — and the former members of the expedition must decide whether to return with her to Pegasus or to remain safely on Earth in the new lives they enjoy…

Picking up where the show's final season ended, STARGATE ATLANTIS Homecoming is the first in the exciting new STARGATE ATLANTIS Legacy series. These all new adventures take the Atlantis team back to the Pegasus galaxy where a terrible new enemy has emerged, an enemy that threatens their lives, their friendships — and the future of Earth itself.

Hidden Warrior
A trick of magic, a twist of fate.

As the orphaned nephew of the king, trusted companion to his cousin, and second heir to the throne of Skala, Prince Tobin’s future is clear. But not as clear as the spring in which a hill witch shows him his true face—and his secret destiny...

Now Tobin carries a burden he cannot share with even his closest friend, Ki, his squire. He is to rule—not as he is but as he was born: a woman. Given the shape of a boy by dark magic, Tobin is the last hope of the people of Illior--those who desperately seek a return to the old ways, when Skala was ruled by a line of warrior queens. They still believe that only a woman can lift the war, famine, and pestilence that have run rampant through the land since the king usurped his half sister’s throne. It is these outlaw wizards and witches who protect Tobin--and it is for them that Tobin must accept his fate.

With the unsuspecting yet fiercely loyal Ki at his side, Tobin must turn traitor against the only blood ties he has left. He must lift the masks of Skala’s rulers to show their true colors—before he can reveal the power of the woman within himself.

Humanity is coming home.

Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic surroundings. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from space.

These new arrivals are the lucky ones-back on the Colony, the oxygen is almost gone-but after making it safely to Earth, GLASS's luck seems to be running out. CLARKE leads a rescue party to the crash site, ready to treat the wounded, but she can't stop thinking about her parents who may still be alive. Meanwhile, WELLS struggles to maintain his authority despite the presence of the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards, and BELLAMY must decide whether to face or flee the crimes he thought he'd left behind.

It's time for the Hundred to come together and fight for the freedom they've found on Earth, or risk losing everything-and everyone-they love.

Het stervende licht

Eens waren ze geliefden, Dirk t’Larien en Gwen Delvano, nu is hun relatie verleden tijd. Tot Dirk reageert op de roep van een fluisterjuweel, een smeekbede die hem naar de verre wereld Worlorn voert — het is een duistere, stervende wereld die wordt bevolkt door ten dode opgeschreven overlevenden van wat ooit een bloeiende beschaving was. Op Worlorn vindt Dirk zijn geliefde Gwen terug, opgesloten in een kooi van jade en zilver. Zij is de gevangene van Jaantony, een heerser die in onmin leeft met zijn eigen volk omdat hij er sociaal onacceptabele opvattingen op na houdt. Onvermijdelijk kruist Dirks pad dat van Jaantony en zijn geslepen rechterhand. En voor het goed en wel tot hem doordringt wat er allemaal gebeurt, vormt Dirk de prooi in een meedogenloze jacht van bloeddorstige wezens voor wie een mensenleven van geen enkel belang is.

Harfner im Wind

Die letzte und endgültige Auseinandersetzung stand bevor. Im Reich des Erhabenen war die Zeit des Friedens zu Ende — durch Morgons Kampf mit dem teuflischen Zauberer Ohm, durch die Machenschaften der rätselhaften Gestaltwandler.

Morgon wußte, daß es Verbindungslinien zwischen all diesen einzelene Vorfällen geben mußte — nur konnte er die Linien nicht ziehen. Wer wer Ohm? Welche Rolle spielte Thod, jener geheimnissvolle Harfner, der ihn einst an Ohm verraten hatte?

Und was wollten die Gestaltwandler aus dem Meer?

Als Fürst von Hed war Morgon ein friedliebender Mensch. Aber für ihn wie für das Reich des Erhabenen gab es nirgendwo mehr Frieden — und erst der letzte verzweifelte Augeblick der Kampfes brachte Kunde vom anbreichen des neuen Zeitalters.

Heirs of Empire

The Scourwind family legacy brought the empire to the height of its power and prosperity and defended it against all enemies. Now one man’s machinations aim to shift the balance of power—with violent and devastating consequences.

When the trusted General Corian launches a coup against Emperor Scourwind, he hurls the planetary kingdom into chaos. To secure his claim as ruler, Corian will need the strength of the Scourwind name behind him, and he will stop at nothing to bring under his grasp the young Scourwind heirs, twins Lydia and Brennan. Barely into adulthood, the two are thrust into the crossfire. Battling new obstacles at every turn, they eventually find refuge with Mira Delsol, pirate and former member of the elite empire forces.

As the stakes rise, loyalists, mercenaries, and political opportunists rally around the heirs in a desperate bid to unseat the usurper. But if their risky gambit fails, will the empire crumble into oblivion?

Jame is one of the last of the Kencyrath line, born to battle a world-destroying Lord of Darkness and resuscitate her ancestral heritage. Jame’s youth was spent hard and low in a desert wasteland. Now she has discovered her past and her heritage as Highborn—and, with it, the power to call souls out of their bodies and slay the occasional god or two (as well as to resurrect them).

First, though, Jame must survive the politics and dangers of haunted Tentir College, a school for warriors where she’s a student. At Tentir, Jame saves a young protégé from possession by a powerful, evil soul in search of a body, while combating jealous students who see her as a danger to their ambition for power and want her expelled—and blinded and dead, in the bargain! To make matters worse, she’s challenged to a mounted combat duel to decide who is Tentir “top gun”—a competition she must win to graduate. It’s trial by fire, as Jame moves closer to a magnificent destiny she both fears—and knows she must face.

Himmel in Flammen

Nur sie würde seinen Schmerz heilen können. Sie allein hatte sich nie wirklich unterworfen. Sie war wild, so wie der eisige Norden, aus dem sie gekommen war: Nandalee. Und nun stand sie in seiner Höhle und zog die Klinge, die er einst selbst erschaffen hatte ...

Mit letzter Kraft flohen die Menschen aus dem ewigen Eis zurück in die südlicheren Gefilde Nangogs - besiegt und gedemütigt von den Kriegern der Daimonen. Erst als ein einzigartiger Wolkensammler mit einer mysteriösen Fracht über Volodis Palast vor Anker geht, schöpfen der Unsterbliche und sein bester Freund Aaron wieder Hoffnung. Es gibt eine Waffe gegen die scheinbar unbesiegbaren Drachen!

Doch auch die mächtigen Himmelsschlangen sind auf diese Waffe aufmerksam geworden. Während sie eine Armee von Zwergen in die Hafenstadt Asugar senden, um die Menschen endgültig zu schlagen, soll einer einzigen Drachenelfe, Nandalee, das Unmögliche gelingen: noch vor den Menschen die Waffe finden und bergen. Aber wird es Nachtatem, ihrem Herrn, wirklich gelingen, die Elfe noch einmal für seine Ziele in den Kampf zu schicken? Dieselbe Elfe, die ihm nahe kam wie niemand sonst und die zugleich sein Ende bedeuten könnte? Als aus dunklen Prophezeiungen Gewissheit wird, zeigt sich: Das Schicksal aller wird sich auf der magischen Welt Nangog entscheiden …

Hystopia

By the early 1970s, President John F. Kennedy has survived several assassination attempts and-martyred, heroic-is now in his third term. Twenty-two-year-old Eugene Allen returns home from his tour of duty in Vietnam and begins to write a war novel-a book echoing Catch-22 and Slaughterhouse-Five-about veterans who have their battlefield experiences "enfolded," wiped from their memories through drugs and therapy. In Eugene's fictive universe, veterans too damaged to be enfolded stalk the American heartland, reenacting atrocities on civilians and evading the Psych Corps, a federal agency dedicated to upholding the mental hygiene of the nation by any means necessary.

This alternative America, in which a veteran tries to reimagine a damaged world, is the subject of Hystopia, the long-awaited first novel by David Means. The critic James Wood has written that Means's language "offers an exquisitely precise and sensuous register of an often crazy American reality." Means brings this talent to bear on the national trauma of the Vietnam era in a work that is outlandish, ruefully funny, and shockingly violent. Written in conversation with some of the greatest war narratives from the Iliad to the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter," Hystopia is a unique and visionary novel.

Hard to Be a God

This 1963 masterpiece is widely considered one of the best novels of the greatest Russian writers of science fiction. Yet until now the only English version (unavailable for over thirty years) was based on a German translation, and was full of errors, infelicities, and misunderstandings. Now, in a new translation by Olena Bormashenko, whose translation of the authors’ Roadside Picnic has received widespread acclaim, here is the definitive edition of this brilliant work.

It tells the story of Don Rumata, who is sent from Earth to the medieval kingdom of Arkanar with instructions to observe and to save what he can. Masquerading as an arrogant nobleman, a dueler and a brawler, Don Rumata is never defeated, but can never kill. With his doubt and compassion, and his deep love for a local girl named Kira, Rumata wants to save the kingdom from the machinations of Don Reba, the first minister to the king. But given his orders, what role can he play?

Hard to Be a God has inspired a role-playing video game and two movies, including Aleksei German’s long-awaited swan song. This long overdue translation will reintroduce one of the most profound Soviet-era novels to an eager audience.

Arkady and Boris Strugatsky were famous and popular Russian writers of science fiction, with more than 25 novels and novellas to their names.

Hari Kunzru is the author of highly praised novels including Gods Without Men and The Impressionist.

Olena Bormashenko is the acclaimed translator of the Strugatskys’ Roadside Picnic.

Hogfather

Susan had never hung up a stocking. She’d never put a tooth under her pillow in the serious expectation that a dentally inclined fairy would turn up. It wasn’t that her parents didn’t believe in such things. They didn’t need to believe in them. They know they existed. They just wished they didn’t.

It’s the night before Hogswatch. And it’s too quiet.

Where is the big jolly fat man? There are those who believe and those who don’t, but either way it’s not right to find Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say Ho Ho Ho. Superstition makes things work in Discworld, and undermining it can have Consequences, particularly on the last night of the year when the time is turning. Susan the gothic governess has got to sort everything out by morning, otherwise there won’t be a morning. Ever again…

The 20th Discworld novel is a festive feast of darkness and Death (but with jolly robins and tinsel too). As they say: ‘You’d better watch out…’

Vildu þeir fá Bilbó með sér í mikinn leiðangur og lét hann treglega tilleiðast. Endurheimta átti fjársjóð sem hinn ógurlegi dreki, Smeyginn, rændi dverganna forðum; sannkallað gull í heljargreipum …

Hobbitinn, forleikurinn að Hringadróttinssögu, kom fyrst út árið 1937 og hefur síðan selst í milljónum eintaka. Sagan er tvímælalaust ein af ástsælustu og áhrifamestu bókmenntum tuttugustu aldar.

The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Humanité et demie

Dans cet avenir très éloigné, l'humanité a conquis la surface entière de la Terre. Elle s'est transformée et divisée en deux espèces.

D'un côté, les Néchiffes à quatre orteils qui habitent d'immenses cités fourmilières où ils mènent sous terre une existence programmée d'hommes-insectes. Ils sont plus de trois trillions. Les Agrimaches cultivent pour eux les champs et ont éliminé toute forme de vie inutile.

De l'autre, les Broncos, libres, affamés, traqués comme des parasites par les chasseurs Néchiffes. Ils ne sont plus qu'une poignée, errant à la surface, pillant les récoltes. Ce sont les humains sauvages à cinq orteils.

Déjà, l'humanité s'estompe…


Dans la tradition du Meilleur des mondes d'Aldous Huxley et de La Ruche d'Hellstrom de Frank Herbert, voici un roman terrifiant sur un avenir écologique possible de l'humanité, écrit par un biologiste qui est aussi un formidable conteur.

House of Skin

William Zero, a.k.a. Dr. Blood-and-Bones. One of the most infamous butchers in U.S. history, a serial killer who skinned and dissected his victims. He killed a dozen people and then vanished without a trace. Now his deranged son, Eddy, is searching for him. He believes his father escaped into an alternate reality and the only way to follow him is by recreating his crimes and opening the doorway to Hell.

And as Eddy hunts his father, he is hunted. Dr. Lisa Lochmere, a psychiatrist is hot on his trail, motivated by sexual obsessions she can’t even begin to understand. When she was a teenager she had an affair with an older man that turned into brutal abuse. Years later, she discovered her lover was none other than William Zero. And ever since, despite herself, she has had a certain sexual compulsion concerning him. A compulsion that only grew when Eddy was placed under her care at an asylum, only to be released by her superiors prematurely.

Now she has tracked Eddy to San Francisco—the scene of his father’s crimes. She intends to find him, telling herself it’s for his own good and a book she wants to write, but in reality the reasons are much more personal. She has enlisted the help of James Fenn, a homicide detective, who wants to help her, but in reality has fallen in love with her, a woman who can know no love, only obsession.

As Eddy kills and kills again and Fenn falls deeper in love with her, Lisa is drawn to the house where Zero dispatched his victims, believing it to be the place where Eddy is most likely to go. But it isn’t Eddy she finds there, but something far worse. Nothing—and no one—is what they seem in the House of Skin.

Hungry

Your cat pukes, then cries.

Is it just a hairball or is something really wrong?

A mad dash to the vet leads to a cat who meows when touched, but how is a veterinarian to know what’s wrong? Is it a blockage or just a terrified kitty? Even with training, sometimes even the experts don’t know.

Or do they?

Take an MRI of a cat’s brain when they’re hungry, and it light’s up a particular way. Take another shot while they’re in pain, and the pattern changes. Researchers believe this could lead towards a better understanding of what a cat’s meow really means.

The folks over at Garner Tech have created the newest tech to help veterinarians and pet owners alike. Cat-Speak—the collar that translates brain patterns into simple phrases like:

• I’m hungry

• I’m hurt

• I’m playful

• I’m sleepy

No, your cat won’t tell you it loves you, but with our handy Bluetooth collar and phone app, your cats’ meows will have research-backed meaning!

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak brings readers a short story set in the near future of unlikely cat-ownership and the snarky, harsh reality many pet owners might face in the near future.

Haven

WINNER OF THE 2016 BRAM STOKER AWARD FOR SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT IN A FIRST NOVEL

In 1961, the small town of Haven thought they’d gotten rid of their monster. After a series of child killings, Paul Greymore was caught carrying a wounded girl. His face, disfigured from a childhood accident, seemed to confirm he was the monster the community hoped to banish. With Paul in prison, the killings stopped. For seventeen years, Haven was peaceful again. But Paul served his time and has now returned to Haven—the town where he grew up, and the scene of his alleged crimes. Paul insists he didn’t commit those crimes, and several townspeople believe him including the local priest, a young boy named Denny, and his best friend Billy. Trouble is, now that Paul is back home, the bizarre killings have started again—and the patterns match the deaths from Haven’s past. If Paul isn’t the killer, who is? Or WHAT is?

An unlikely band of adventurers attempts to uncover the truth, delving into long-hidden tunnels that might actually be inhabited by a strange, predatory creature.

Haven is a compelling horror epic in the spirit of It or Summer of Night, and a stunning debut novel from a gifted author who knows that the darkest horrors lurk inside human beings, even when there is a monster on the loose.

Hyperion

Dopo l’Egira, nell’universo è stata creata una federazione di pianeti: l’Egemonia dell’Uomo. Ma al di fuori della sua giurisdizione esiste un pianeta chiamato Hyperion. E su Hyperion è in attesa una creatura metallica, sanguinaria, dotata di poteri semidivini: lo Shrike. Alcuni lo adorano. Altri lo temono. Altri ancora hanno giurato di distruggerlo. Lo Shrike li attende tutti, amici e nemici, nella Valle delle Tombe del Tempo, dove enormi strutture cupe provenienti dal futuro si ritraggono verso il passato recando oscuri messaggi. Alla vigilia dell’Armageddon, con l’intera galassia in guerra, sette pellegrini si mettono in viaggio verso le Tombe, alla ricerca delle risposte agli enigmi delle loro vite. Ognuno di loro custodisce un terribile segreto e una disperata speranza, e ognuno è disposto a morire, per portare a termine la ricerca. E forse dovrà morire, perche lo Shrike uccide tutti i pellegrini che gli si avvicinano… meno uno. E il superstite vedrà realizzato il desiderio che più gli sta a cuore. Per prepararsi all’incontro con lo Shrike, ogni personaggio racconta agli altri la propria storia, la storia che l’ha portato su Hyperion. E con il procedere dei racconti ci viene rivelata una cultura interstellare d’incredibile complessità e varietà, che diventa a poco a poco sempre più reale e coinvolgente.

  •  Мятежница
     Эльденберт Марина
     Фантастика, Фэнтези, Любовные романы, Любовно-фантастические романы

    Для артанского князя я — всего лишь трофей. Пленная нифрейка, рабыня, с которой можно делать все, что угодно. Кейна Логхарда не зря называют Мраком, его жестокость безгранична, его магия подчиняет княжество за княжеством, его войско непобедимо. Но у меня тоже есть одна маленькая тайна, и я раскрою ее, когда придет время. Время отомстить за всех, кто был мне дорог.

  •  Как отделаться от принца за 30 дней
     Вакина Любовь
     Фантастика, Юмористическая фантастика, Любовные романы, Любовно-фантастические романы

    В один миг лишиться приемных родителей и остаться сиротой без жилья и средств к существованию? — От такого удара тяжело оправиться, но если обстоятельства заставляют, то приходится вытирать слезы и начинать действовать.

    Взять на себя опеку над двумя сводными братьями и тремя сёстрами? — Трудно, но выполнимо.

    Выживать каждый день, экономя на всем? — Обидно, но не смертельно.

    Рискуя быть разоблачённой, затесаться на вечера встреч для одиноких сердец самых влиятельных людей своей страны? — Казалось бы, несбыточные мечты, но… кто сказал, что это невозможно?

    Аурике повезло, и теперь у неё в руках магическая карточка доступа на приёмы для избранных, которые устраивает первая леди империи.

    Теперь Аурике осталась самая малость — держаться в тени и, в идеале, остаться всеми незамеченной, но иногда именно самое простое оказывается таким сложным…


  •  Ведьма и Вожак
     Суббота Светлана
     Фантастика, Фэнтези, Попаданцы,

    Древней семье волшебников нужна помощь, но что можешь сделать ты, гостья из иного мира, сдержанная снаружи и свободная внутри, опытный менеджер и успешный переговорщик? Ведь девушки здесь совсем другие — они нежны и трепетны, а мужчины опасны до дрожи, решительны и привыкли командовать. Во время Испытания Крови, в битве за звание Вожака, в вихре тайн и покушений — тебе поможет только умение держать себя в руках, магия ведьмы в твоих венах и отличное чувство юмора.

    Выше подбородок и ровнее плечи! Даже когда кружится голова и отчаянно стучит сердце. Это все из-за трудностей выживания среди хищников, да? А может быть, из-за того, что один из них… слишком хорош?

    Неприятность может случиться с каждым человеком, не только с нашим Главным Героем Романом Брайтом. Он попал в манипуляторы ИИ машинной цивилизации, которые по неизвестной надобности пытаются заполучить нашего ГГ. Однако та крупная неприятность в которую ГГ попал, разрешилась по вине самих же ИИ. Вот только освобождение прошло не совсем так, как рассчитывал наш Роман, совсем не так.
