Most widely held works by R. A Lafferty
The fall of Rome by R. A Lafferty( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rome's demise was not a simple case of fierce barbarians sacking and subduing a decadent, crumbling city. The author has skillfully balanced the turmoil and illusions of a mighty, dying Empire against the vitality of the aggressive Huns, Vandals, and above all, the Goths. The result is a perceptive and stimulating historical account, the story of the men and women who made things happen, who were as awesome, poignant, and in some cases, as savage as the era itself.--Adapted from dust jacket

La 4e de couverture indique : " Au commencement il y eut une interruption (...). Mais une interruption peut-elle survenir au commencement?" Ainsi s'ouvre la première autobiographie jamais écrite par une machine ... Créée par l'Institut pour la Science Impure, veillée par un géant au petit pied, une éternelle petite fille, un inventeur sans génie aux créations formidables, un grand roi sans couronne et un fantôme qui n'existe pas, la machine ktistèque n'est rien moins que le compendium mécanique de l'humanité. Machine pensante qui englobe toutes les consciences, elle doit apporter la réponse à l'humanité. Que les hommes sachent quelle est la question, c'est une autre histoire ..."
