Juego de tronos

Tras el largo verano, el invierno se acerca a los Siete Reinos. Lord Eddars Stark, señor de Invernalia, deja sus dominios para unirse a la corte del rey Robert Baratheon el Usurpador, hombre díscolo y otrora guerrero audaz cuyas mayores aficiones son comer, beber y engendrar bastardos. Eddard Stark desempeñará el cargo de Mano del Rey e intentará desentrañar una maraña de intrigas que pondrá en peligro su vida… y la de los suyos.


En un mundo cuyas estaciones duran décadas y en el que retazos de una magia inmemorial y olvidada surgen en los rincones más sombríos y maravillosos, la traición y la lealtad, la compasión y la sed de venganza, el amor y el poder hacen del juego de tronos una poderosa trampa que atrapa en sus fauces a los personajes… y al lector.

Johannes Cabal the Detective

Johannes Cabal, necromancer of some little infamy, returns in this riotously clever and terrifically twisted tale of murder and international intrigue.


In this genre-twisting novel, infamous necromancer Johannes Cabal, after beating the Devil and being reunited with his soul, leads us on another raucous journey in a little-known corner of the world. This time he's on the run from the local government.

Stealing the identity of a minor bureaucrat, Cabal takes passage on the Princess Hortense, a passenger aeroship that is leaving the country. The deception seems perfect, and Cabal looks forward to a quiet trip and a clean escape, until he comes face-to-face with Leonie Barrow, an enemy from the old days who could blow his cover. But when a fellow passenger throws himself to his death, or at least that is how it appears, Cabal begins to investigate out of curiosity. His minor efforts result in a vicious attempt on his own life — and then the gloves come off.

Cabal and Leonie — the only woman to ever match wits with him — reluctantly team up to discover the murderer. Before they are done, there will be more narrow escapes, involving sword fighting and newfangled flying machines. There will be massive destruction, not to mention resurrected dead.


Steampunk meets the classic Sherlockian mystery in this rip-roaring adventure where anything could happen… and does.

Julian

Apostat. Fugitif. Conquérant.


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

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

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

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

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


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

Julian Comstock: A Story of 22-nd Century America

From the Hugo-winning author of Spin, an exuberant adventure in a post-climate-change America.

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

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

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

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


Nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2010.

Jane Goes Batty

Life was a lot easier for Jane when she was just an unknown, undead bookstore owner in a sleepy hamlet in upstate New York. But now the world embraces her as Jane Fairfax, author of the bestselling novel Constance—and she’s having a killer time trying to keep her true identity as the Jane Austen a secret. Even the ongoing lessons in How to Be a Vampire, taught by her former lover Lord Byron, don’t seem to be helping much. Jane can barely focus on her boyfriend, Walter, while keeping him in the dark about her more sanguine tastes.

To make matters worse, Walter announces that his mother is coming for a visit—and she’s expecting Jane to be Jewish. Add in a demanding new editor, a convention of romance readers in period costume, a Hollywood camera crew following Jane’s every move, and the constant threat of a certain bloodsucking Brontë sister coming back to finish her off, and it’s enough to make even the most well-mannered heroine go batty!

High Druid of Shannara. More than a quarter of a century after The Sword of Shannara carved out its place in the pantheon of great epic fantasy, the magic of Terry Brooks's New York Times bestselling saga burns as brightly as ever. Three complete series have chronicled the ever–unfolding history of Shannara. But more stories are still to be told–and new adventures have yet to be undertaken. Book One of High Druid of Shannara invites both the faithful longtime reader and the curious newcomer to take the first step on the next extraordinary quest. Twenty years have passed since Grianne Ohmsford denounced her former life as the dreaded Ilse Witch–saved by the love of her brother, the magic of the Sword of Shannara, and the destruction of her evil mentor, the Morgawr. Now, fulfilling the destiny predicted for her, she has established the Third Druid Council, and dedicated herself to its goals of peace, harmony among the races, and defense of the Four Lands. But the political intrigue, secret treachery, and sinister deeds that have haunted Druid history for generations continue to thrive.

The only way to solve the mystery and maintain peace is for two Jedi apprentices — Anakin Skywalker and his rival, Ferus Olin — to infiltrate one of the fiercest places in the galaxy: school.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

Chosen by fate. Destined for conflict.


There is increasing tension between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. Anakin still feels responsible for the death of a Jedi Council member — a guilt he does not think Obi-Wan can help him overcome.


Obi-Wan feels he is a less-than-perfect Master — trying to teach a less-than-perfect apprentice.


It is with these feelings that Obi-Wan and Anakin head to the last free planets of the Uziel system to make a daring rescue attempt. When the rescue goes awry and Anakin is taken prisoner, the Master and Padawan must overcome their conflict — or a planet will die.

Just Outside Our Windows, Deep Inside Our Walls

He knows all about living alone. Knows all about life on the top floor, on the other side of the locks that keep him there. It's not a bad life. Lots of other kids have it worse, and he has everything he wants. Except for paper and pencils.

He did a terrible thing once, with nothing more than a drawing and dislike, to someone who will never be right again.

When Roni moves in next door for the summer, singing enigmatic songs in the window across from him, it's the beginning of a new adventure: friendship, and a secret line to the world outside.

Summer always ends, though, and guests have to go home. But friendship means forever.

No matter what the cost to life and limb.


“Just Outside Our Windows, Deep Inside Our Walls” is a haunting story of childhood’s random cruelties, and how its power can be reclaimed in uncompromising ways, by the author that Caitlín Kiernan has called “one of the most marvelously irreverent voices in dark fantasy today.”

Je těžké být bohem

Příběh se odehrává na planetě Arkanar, podobné Zemi, která se však nachazí v historické vývojové fázi podobné středověku na Zemi, v době dvorských intrik, zrady a lidské špíny. Na Arkanar přicházejí vědci (historikové) zemské akademie věd zkoumat vývoj této kultury, avšak v rámci objektivity výzkumu se snaží vyhnout jakémukoliv výraznému zasahování do vývoje událostí, přestože svými možnostmi nemají daleko k bohům. Hlavní postavou příběhu je historik Anton (vážený don Rumata) v nejlepších letech, který má drobný problém s „nezasahováním“ a jak on říká: „s převtělovaním se v prase“ aby zapadl do společnosti, kde je svědkem intrik a zkaženosti místních, kde Šedí (gardy Ministerstva ochrany trůnu) zabíjejí a likvidují koho mohou, kde se lidé navzájem okrádají, podvádějí a vraždí…. Ovšem i v tak temné době nachází don Rumata mezi místními u pár v té době výjimečných lidí velké přátelství a dokonce i lásku… Šedí však nespí, jedné noci při mocném úderu se snaží strhnout na sebe vládu a zlikvidovat své odpůrce; Rumatovi přátelé jsou zabiti, on sám zachráněn pomocí ze Země, která přes zásadu neovlivňovat místní vývoj cítí povinnost určitým způsobem zasáhnout proti Šedým ve prospěch ostatních.

Jane Bites Back

Two hundred years after her death, Jane Austen is still surrounded by the literature she loves—but now it's because she's the owner of Flyleaf Books in a sleepy college town in Upstate New York. Every day she watches her novels fly off the shelves—along with dozens of unauthorized sequels, spin-offs, and adaptations. Jane may be undead, but her books have taken on a life of their own.

To make matters worse, the manuscript she finished just before being turned into a vampire has been rejected by publishers—116 times. Jane longs to let the world know who she is, but when a sudden twist of fate thrusts her back into the spotlight, she must hide her real identity—and fend off a dark man from her past while juggling two modern suitors. Will the inimitable Jane Austen be able to keep her cool in this comedy of manners, or will she show everyone what a woman with a sharp wit and an even sharper set of fangs can do?

Jailbird

No one can make America into childlike myth like Vonnegut can. Here he takes capitalism, labor history, Sacco-Vanzetti, McCarthyism, and Watergate, and puts them all into the slender memoirs of Walter F. Starbuck - a chauffeur's son who was mentored by the scion of a great and ruthless corporation, was sent to Harvard, but was abandoned when he was caught dabbling in the 1930s left-wing; which meant that Walter had to make his own way as a WW II soldier, Washington civil servant, unintentional stoolie in a Hiss/Chambers-type case, unemployed husband (his concentration-camp-survivor wife supported them with interior decorating), and finally Nixon's token "advisor for youth affairs" and a very minor Watergate convict. So now old Walter is getting out of minimum-security prison (where he has met Vonnegut's Kilgore Trout), without a friend in the world - his wife is dead and his son is "a very unpleasant person. . . a book reviewer for The New York Times" - and with hopes of becoming a bartender somewhere in Manhattan. All this is told in Vonnegut's customary fatless, detail-rich, musical prose (with the usual ironic asides: "And on and on," "Peace," "Strong stuff"), and it's strangely touching, occasionally boldly funny. But as good as he is at building a haunted, hilariously compressed myth out of our shared past, Vonnegut can't keep it from collapsing into silliness when he tries to propel it into the future; Walter's post-prison adventures are so fairy-tale-ish and theme-heavy that they lose that precariously balanced aura of truer-than-true. Once in Manhattan, he meets the major people from his past in one coincidence after another, including his old flame and fellow left-winger Mary Kathleen O'Looney, who is now a N.Y. shopping-bag lady living beneath Grand Central Station - but is she really a bag lady? No! She's really "the legendary Mrs. Jack Graham," neverseen majority stockholder in the all-powerful RAMJAC Corporation. So Walter is suddenly made a corporate bigwig, and, when Mary Kathleen secretly dies, he illegally (but well-meaningly) keeps the company going. . . and winds up a jailbird again. Rich/poor, honest/criminal, management/labor - Vonnegut is playfully exploring the ease with which an American Everyman can alternate between these ostensible extremes. But he has covered much of that ground before - principally in God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater - and he himself seems to become bored and mechanical halfway through. Not top-drawer Vonnegut, then, but guilty/innocent Walter is a fine creation, and there's enough of the author's narrative zip to keep fans happy even while the novel fizzles into foolishness.

Judgment at Proteus

The climactic novel of the star-spanning Quadrail space opera

The Quadrail that connects the twelve civilizations of our galaxy has been the flashpoint of a battle for dominance fought mostly unnoticed by humankind. But Frank Compton of Earth, aided by the enigmatic woman Bayta, has fought on the front lines, using every bit of his human ingenuity and secret agent skills to outwit the Modhri, a group intelligence that would control the minds of every sentient being it can touch.

Following a trail of deception and death to Proteus Station, Compton has discovered a conspiracy that threatens all life in the galaxy: the Shonkla'raa, an ancient enemy thought to be long dead, is rising again. So serious is the danger that the Modhri, the enemy of his enemy, may now be his friend, as the burgeoning threat of a race of invincible soldiers emerges.

If Compton and Bayta can't stop them, the Shonkla'raa will decimate all who oppose them, destroying the Quadrail and billions of lives throughout the galaxy.

Jesus Saves

From one of the most daring and sensuous young writers in America, Jesus Saves, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, is a suburban gothic that explores the sources of evil, confronts the dynamic shifts within theology, and traces the consequences of suburban alienation. Set in the modern launch pads of adolescent ritual, the strip malls and duplexes on the back side of suburbia, it's the story of two girls: Ginger, a troubled minister's daughter; and Sandy Patrick, who has been abducted from summer camp and now smiles from missing-child posters all over town.

Layering the dreamscapes of Alice in Wonderland with the subculture of River's Edge, Darcey Steinke's Jesus Saves is an unforgettable passage through the depths of the literary imagination.

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

Neighbours… hah. People’d live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ear.’

Throughout history, there’s always been a perfectly good reason to start a war. Never more so if it is over a ‘strategic’ piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere. It is after all every citizen’s right to bear arms to defend what they consider to be their own. Even if it isn’t. And in such pressing circumstances, you really shouldn’t let small details like the absence of an army or indeed the money to finance one get in the way of a righteous fight with all the attendant benefits of out-and-out nationalism…

The radioactive wastelands and millions of giant carnivores are the least of the communitys problems. Raiders from the stars are what must be faced by the brave archers to survive. Thousands have been killed and the raiders are coming again.

Jagannath

An award-winning debut story collection by Karin Tidbeck, author of Amatka and heir to Borges, Le Guin, and Lovecraft.

A child is born in a tin can. A switchboard operator finds himself in hell. Three corpulent women float somewhere beyond time. Welcome to the weird world of Karin Tidbeck, the visionary Swedish author of literary sci-fi, speculative fiction, and mind-bending fantasy who has captivated readers around the world. Originally published by the tiny press Cheeky Frawg—the passion project of Ann and Jeff VanderMeer—Jagannath has been celebrated by readers and critics alike, with rave reviews from major outlets and support from lauded peers like China Miéville and even Ursula K. Le Guin herself. These are stories in which fairies haunt quiet towns, and an immortal being discovers the nature of time—stories in which anything is possible.

Judenstaat

Simone Zelitch has created an amazing alternate history in Judenstaat. On April 4th, 1948 the sovereign state of Judenstaat was created in the territory of Saxony, bordering Germany, Poland, and Czechoslovakia.

Forty years later, Jewish historian Judit Klemmer is making a documentary portraying Judenstaat’s history from the time of its founding to the present. She is haunted by the ghost of her dead husband, Hans, a Saxon, shot by a sniper as he conducted the National Symphony. With the grief always fresh, Judit lives a half-life, until confronted by a mysterious, flesh-and-blood ghost from her past who leaves her controversial footage on one of Judenstaat’s founding fathers—and a note:

“They lied about the murder.”

Judit’s research into the footage, and what really happened to Hans, embroils her in controversy and conspiracy, collective memory and national amnesia, and answers far more horrific than she imagined.

  •  Еще один баловень судьбы
     Васильев Николай Федорович
     Попаданцы, Фантастика, Альтернативная история

    Приключения попаданца в революционной Франции в 1795-97 годах…

    Книга «Еще один баловень судьбы» Николая Федоровича Васильева относится к разряду тех, которые стоит прочитать. Созданные образы открывают целые вселенные невероятно сложные, внутри которых свои законы, идеалы, трагедии. Замечательно то, что параллельно с сюжетом встречаются ноты сатиры, которые сгущают изображение порой даже до нелепости, и доводят образ до крайности. Чувствуется определенная особенность, попытка выйти за рамки основной идеи и внести ту неповторимость, благодаря которой появляется желание вернуться к прочитанному. Сюжет произведения захватывающий, стилистически яркий, интригующий с первых же страниц. Удивительно, что автор не делает никаких выводов, он радуется и огорчается, веселится и грустит, загорается и остывает вместе со своими героями. Загадка лежит на поверхности, а вот ключ к отгадке едва уловим, постоянно ускользает с появлением все новых и новых деталей. Несмотря на изумительную и своеобразную композицию, развязка потрясающе проста и гениальна, с проблесками исключительной поэтической силы. Из-за талантливого и опытного изображения окружающих героев пейзажей, хочется быть среди них и оставаться с ними как можно дольше. Просматривается актуальная во все времена идея превосходства добра над злом, света над тьмой с очевидной победой первого и поражением второго. Обращает на себя внимание то, насколько текст легко рифмуется с современностью и не имеет оттенков прошлого или будущего, ведь он актуален во все времена. «Еще один баловень судьбы» Николая Федоровича Васильева читать увлекательно, книга, порой, напоминает нам нашу жизнь, видишь самого себя в ней, и уже смотришь на читаемое словно на пособие.

    Однако все ли так просто?

    Николь получит должность, станет лучшей. И не важно, что она не ведьма: способности взяты на время, метлу подарила подруга, а вместо фамильяра своенравный имп. Николь не испугают загадки и тайны, что множатся, как разлетающиеся осколки, лишь бы враг получил по заслугам.

Моя семья на моей стороне, но примут ли они того, кого я люблю, если его Сила опасна для нас всех?
