Book Description
In Lara Elena Donnellys glamourösem Spionagethriller opfert ein Doppelagent all seine Ideale, um seinen Schmuggler-Geliebten zu retten, bevor ein Regierungsputsch ihre dekadente Stadt übernehmen kann. Inmitten wachsender politischer Spannungen verflechten sich in Amberlough drei Leben mit dem Schicksal der Stadt selbst. Der Schmuggler: Tagsüber ist Aristide Makricosta Conférencier des exklusivsten Nachtclub in Amberlough. Nachts hingegen schmuggelt er Drogen und Flüchtlinge direkt unter der Nase korrupter Polizisten. Der Spion: Geheimagent Cyril DePaul denkt, er könne Geheimnisse gut bewahren, doch nach einem katastrophalen Einsatz im Ausland trifft er eine gefährliche Entscheidung, um sich zu schützen ... und Aristide hoffentlich ebenfalls. Die Tänzerin: Cordelia Lehane, eine gewiefte Burlesque-Tänzerin im Bumble Bee Cabaret und Aristides' Mädchen für alles, könnte der Schlüssel zu Cyrils Plan sein ... wenn ihr zu trauen ist. Während die strahlenden Neonlichter von den wachsenden Flammen einer faschistischen Revolution abgelöst werden, müssen diese drei alles und jeden benutzen, um zu überleben, einschließlich einander. Eine großartige Mischung aus Kabarett und John Le Carré.

SCIENCE FICTION THE WONDER OF HUMAN IMAGINATION PDF Author: Andreas Sofroniou

ISBN: 0244934096
Category : Fiction
Languages : en
Pages : 117

Book Description
Science Fiction explores the probable consequences of some improbable or impossible transformation of the basic conditions of human (or intelligent non-human) existence. This transformation need not be a technological invention, but may be some mutation of known biological or physical reality: artificial or extraterrestrial life-forms and travel through time are favourite subjects. Science Fiction stories may involve Utopian political speculation, or satire, but most rely on the marvellous appeal of fantasy. The term Science Fiction was first given general currency by Hugo Gernsback, editor of the popular Amazing Stories magazine from 1926. Once uniformly dismissed as pulp trash, SF gained greater respect from the 1950s, as writers like Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and John Wyndham expanded its range; themes of alien invasion and brain-washing became especially popular at the height of the Cold War.
