2045–2059: Während sich die Menschheit auf der Datumerde weiterentwickelt, ihrem von Katastrophen heimgesuchten und in die Jahre gekommenen Heimatplaneten, schreitet auch die Besiedelung der unendlich vielen Welten der Langen Erde voran. Lobsang, der als künstliche Intelligenz über Jahrzehnte die Lange Erde erforscht hat, lebt nach einem Zusammenbruch als Mensch getarnt auf einer exotischen, weit entfernten Erde. Dort glaubt er, ein »normales« Leben führen zu können. Doch irgendetwas stimmt mit dieser Kopie der Erde nicht.

Mit wenig erfreulichen Aussichten für deren Bewohner …

Deutsch | Gegenwartsliteratur | Oktober 2013 | ISBN: 978-3442547272 | 400 Seiten | epub, mobi, pdf | 4.03 MB

Ein kleiner angekokelter Plastikkasten, ein paar angelötete Drähte, ein Schalter, eine Kartoffel … Als die Polizistin Monica Jansson im Jahr 2015 in den verkohlten Ruinen eines Hauses auf diese eher zweifelhafte Apparatur stößt, ahnt sie nicht, dass der Prototyp einer bahnbrechenden Erfindung vor ihr steht. Einer Erfindung, die die Geschichte der Menschheit für immer verändern wird. Denn der kleine Kasten ist ein Wechsler, mit dem es von nun an jedem möglich sein wird, mit einem kleinen Schritt in die »Lange Erde« hinauszutreten: eine unendliche Abfolge von parallelen Welten, der unseren mehr oder weniger ähnlich und von Menschen unbewohnt. Schon bald setzt auf der alten Erde ein wilder Goldrausch ein. Denn die Lange Erde birgt unendliche Möglichkeiten – und unendliche Gefahren …

The Illustrated Eric by Terry Pratchett and Josh Kirby
Gollancz | 2010 | ISBN: 0575096284 | 131 pages | EPUB | 35 MB

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. The trouble is, he's not very good at it. All he wants is the usual three wishes: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall madly in love with him. The usual stuff. But what he gets is Rincewind, the Disc's most incompetent wizard, and Rincewind's Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory) into the bargain. Terry Pratchett's hilarious take on the Faust legend stars many of the Discworld's most popular characters in an outrageous adventure that will leave Eric wishing once more - this time, quite fervently - that he'd never been born.

Gli altri bambini hanno gli xilofoni. A Susan basta chiedere al nonno di tirarsi su la maglietta. Avere sedici anni non è mai facile… soprattutto se c'è un Morte in famiglia. Dopotutto non è una passeggiata crescere normalmente quando hai un nonno che cavalca un cavallo bianco e impugna una gigantesca falce. Specialmente se decide di prendersi una meritata pausa per andare alla ricerca del senso della vita e scoprire 'perché le cose vanno come vanno', e tu devi rilevare gli affari di famiglia sperando che la gente non continui a scambiarti per la Fatina dei Denti. E soprattutto se ti trovi faccia a faccia con una musica che crea dipendenza che ha stregato l'intero Mondo Disco…
