Wer gab der Menschheit 'Starthilfe'? Schon längst ist die Menschheit nicht mehr die einzige intelligente Spezies auf dem Planeten. Als die Menschen ins Weltall vorstossen und auf andere hoch entwickelte Zivilisationen treffen, ergeben sich allerdings Fragen: Hat sich die Intelligenz der Menschen von selbst entwickelt, oder wurden sie "upgeliftet"? Wenn ja, von wem? Eine Mission ins Herz der Sonne soll Antworten geben ... David Brin, 1950 im amerikanischen Glendale geboren, studierte Astronomie und Physik und arbeitete lange als Wissenschaftler und Dozent, bevor er sich ganz dem Schreiben widmete. Mittlerweile gehört er zu den bedeutendsten amerikanischen Science-Fiction-Autoren der Gegenwart und erobert regelmässig die Bestsellerlisten.

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Hambly's trilogy about a murderous force that threatens a far-off magical world and the two ordinary Californians who are drawn into the battle to save mankind. As a student of medieval history, Gil Patterson is a woman familiar with dark stories. She knows the Crusades, the Black Death, and the other horrors of the Middle Ages all too well, but it is another kind of atrocity that has begun to haunt her dreams. She sees forces of evil assaulting a beleaguered kingdom, whose kind people are on the brink of annihilation, and awakes each morning in a cold sweat. In The Time of the Dark, Gil dismisses the dreams until a wizard appears in her apartment. He has crossed into her dimension, passing through the fraying fabric of the universe, to ask her help. For mankind to survive he must protect an infant prince, whom he plans to hide in Gil's world. She is about to get much closer to evil than she ever imagined. In The Walls of Air and The Armies of Daylight, Gil and Rudy know the world is no longer safe and there is nowhere to hide from the Dark. Since the Dark Ones returned, the world has been laid to waste. The land's wizards have been slaughtered, its cities destroyed, and its people scattered in terror. Few have witnessed more of the destruction than Gil and Rudy, and both of them will need all their strength to survive this final challenge. Ingold, the master wizard, has devised a spell to hide the user from the deathly stare of the Dark, and he intends to use it to strike at their very heart. Finally, Gil, Rudy, and the rest of mankind's survivors will take the offensive, bringing an end to this terrible war, for better or for worse

The godwhale by T. J Bass( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rorqual Maru was a cyborg - part organic whale, part mechanised ship - and part god. She was a harvester - a vast plankton rake, now without a crop, abandoned by earth society when the seas died. So she selected an island for her grave, hoping to keep her carcass visible for salvage. Although her long ear heard nothing, she believed that man still lived in his hive. If he should ever return to the sea, she wanted to serve. She longed for the thrill of a human's bare feet touching the skin of her deck. She missed the hearty hails, the sweat and the laughter. She needed mankind. But all humans were long gone ...or were they?
