Capable de reproduire à la perfection tout organisme vivant, elle s'abat sur les membres de l'expédition, les décimant un à un.

John W. Campbell, Jr. (1910-1971) was more than just one of the greatest science fiction writers of the twentieth century. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction from 1937 until his death, he is generally credited with being the primary shaper of the Golden Age of science fiction. He tutored such giants in the field as A. E. van Vogt, Theodore Sturgeon, and Robert A. Heinlein. Campbell's fiction featured spaceships and aliens, (which are thought of today as typical sci-fi tropes), but he was philosophically focused on big technological and scientific ideas and their ramifications. Writing as Don A. Stuart, Campbell's stories often seem interested in scientific ideas for their own sake, while nevertheless addressing the consequences of the applying them. His fiction explores human nature by contrasting human relationships with technology, or evolution, or aliens, and interrogates other cultural tropes -- specifically what counts as a flourishing civilization, the idea of "progress," and the notion of science as "beneficial."

John W. Campbell : collected editorials from 'Analog' by John W Campbell( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The readership of physicists, chemists, biologists and engineers to which this testy collection might appeal is too large to confine the book to the niche of science-fiction. Campbell's loudly voiced and intriguing views on such subjects as Krebiozen, life on other planets, the medical profession, segregation, slums, and nearly every other aspect of the physical universe have shocked and singed the sensibilities of his devotees for twenty-eight years. The best way for the general reader to approach his original mind is via the pieces on politics and society--both subjects are treated scientifically and the results are disturbing but true. Once the reader is hooked, he might even begin to consider the more insular of Campbell's concerns. --Kirkus Reviews, 1966
John W. Campbell anthology by John W Campbell( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Twenty-Second century, viewed from 1930: giant propeller-driven aircraft carrying two thousand passengers across the country at 500-plus miles an hour, progressing to molecular-motion drives run by solar heat, to interplanetary voyages and war with Venus, to an "invasion" by a rogue star crossing the solar system. Three against the stars! A sky pirate armed with superior weapons of his own invention....First contact with an alien race dangerous enough to threaten the safety of two planets....The arrival of an unseen dark sun whose attendant marauders aimed at the very end of civilization in this Solar System....These were the three challenges that tested the skill and minds of the brilliant team of scientist-astronauts Arcot, Wade, and Morey. Their initial adventures are a classic of science fiction that first brought the name of their author, John W. Campbell, Jr., into prominence as a master of the inventive imagination -- long before he became the editor of Astounding/Analog and changed the field of science fiction forever!

The ultimate weapon by John W Campbell( )

The Ultimate Weapon is a science fiction novel by John W Campbell Jr., first published in 1936. The novel was originally published as a serial in Amazing Stories under the title of Uncertainty. The star Mira was unpredictably variable. Sometimes it was blazing, brilliant and hot. Other times it was oddly dim, cool, shedding little warmth on its many planets. Gresth Gkae, leader of the Mirans, was seeking a better star, one to which his "people" could migrate. That star had to be steady, reliable, with a good planetary system. And in his astronomical searching, he found Sol. With hundreds of ships, each larger than whole Terrestrial spaceports, and traveling faster than the speed of light, the Mirans set out to move in to Solar regions and take over. And on Earth there was nothing which would be capable of beating off this incredible armada--until Buck Kendall stumbled upon THE ULTIMATE WEAPON. John W Campbell Jr., (1910-1971) was an American science fiction writer and editor. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction (later called Analog Science Fiction and Fact) from late 1937 until his death, he is generally credited with shaping the so-called Golden Age of Science Fiction.
