Exploring the Matrix : visions of the cyber present by Karen Haber( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the beginning of the twenty-first century, and we are living on the cusp of change. Reality has already spawned one alternate state, and for many people virtual reality is now where they are most at home. But what happens when virtual worlds become indistinguishable from what we consider to be the real world? When you wake up from a dream, how do you know that you are not still dreaming? And if the reality we're in is virtual, who is doing the programming?These questions, and many more like them, spin effortlessly out of the box-office mega-hit The Matrix. More than just a computer-aided shoot-'em-up, more than just the latest cinematic expression of cyberpunk angst, The Matrix presented layer upon layer of challenging explorations of what the true nature of reality might be, and why this should (or should not) be important to us. Exploring the Matrix presents eighteen thoughtful and though-provoking essays on what the film had to say and exactly how it was said. Here you will discover the long and fascinating history of some of the themes set forth in the Wachowski Brothers' landmark film, why they are important, how they have been explored n the past, and their implications for the immediate future of human society. The true nature of reality in our current cyber-age is not a rhetorical question, but rather one that needs to be answered as we move closer to seamless virtual scenarios, accessible online, in video games ... and perhaps ultimately as the result of uploading software to an implanted chip in the brain. You can take the blue pill and stay in the dream, unaware of your status, or take the red pill and see just how deep the rabbit hole goes

Et dans ce monde inhospitalier, les mineurs ne vont pas au charbon mais aux pierres-Psi, cristaux très prisés pour leurs propriétés hallucinogènes et les prouesses intellectuelles et sexuelles qu'ils permettent. Ces pierres, sont naturellement, l'objet de bien des convoitises. Notamment de la part de l'odieux Karlston, qui contrôle le commerce interstellaire... Mais quand on est, comme Kayla, l'empathe la plus douée de sa planète, on n'a pas froid aux yeux et l'on n'hésite pas à provoquer les puissants. Quitte à voir sa tête mise à prix et à s'enfuir dans l'espace, avec la police à ses trousses ! De là à changer d'identité pour s'improviser pilote sur le Falstaff, un vaisseau de contrebandiers, il n'y a qu'un pas... Qui peut mener très loin ! Dans cette fuite éperdue de planète en planète, aux prises avec de dangereux terroristes, Kayla parviendra-t-elle à sauver sa peau ?"

Transitions : the art of Todd Lockwood by Karen Haber( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a successful career as a commercial artist in advertising, Todd Lockwood was astonished to be told that people were willing to pay for the fantasy and science fiction art he vastly preferred to create. That discovery altered the course of his life, and he is now one of the most widely respected fantasy artists of our age. Known worldwide for his depiction of heroic and stirring high-fantasy imagery under the aegis of TSR(TM) and Wizards of the Coast(TM), he also creates work of astonishing sensitivity and beauty in quieter styles. This book, with its revealing text by Hugo-nominated writer and journalist Karen Haber and by Lockwood himself, contains well over a hundred paintings from all areas of his fantasy creation
The war minstrels by Karen Haber( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kate N. Shadow was the name empath Kayla John Reed took when she was forced to flee her home planet and join the crew of the Falstaff, a "merchant" spaceship that stretched the limits of legal shipping beyond the breaking point. But even the Falstaff could not remain a haven for much longer, not when the forces of magnate Pelleas Karlson and empath Yates Keller were out to put an end to all the Free Traders who currently plied the spaceways. Kate had nearly fallen victim to the Groundmind controlled by Yates in her last devastating encounter with this ruthless enemy. And with her own empathic talents greatly weakened as a result, she knew that she would need to drawon resources far beyond her own to help the rebel troops known as the War Minstrels in their bid to break Karlson's control of the spaceways. Kate's only hope lay in finding the Mindstar, a mindstone of legendary proportions which could give its successful wielder infinite power -- or suck the very life out of anyone who tried to master it and failed
