3 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the planet of Per Ardua, alien artifacts were discovered--hatches that allowed humans to step across light-years of space as if they were stepping into another room. But this newfound freedom has consequences.... As humanity discovers the real nature of the universe, a terrifying truth comes to light. We all have countless pasts converging in this present--and our future is terrifyingly finite. There are minds in the universe that are billions of years old and now we are vulnerable to their plans for us.... It's time to fight back and take control"--

Proxima by Stephen Baxter( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mankind's future in this galaxy could be all but infinite ... There are hundreds of billions of red dwarf stars, lasting trillions of years--and their planets can be habitable for humans. Such is the world of Proxima Centauri. And its promise could mean the never-ending existence of humanity. But first it must be colonized, and no one wants to be a settler. There is no glamor that accompanies it, like being the first man on the moon, nor is there the ease of becoming a citizen of an already-tamed world. There is only hardship ... loneliness ... emptiness. But that's where Yuri comes in. Because sometimes exploration isn't voluntary. It must be coerced ..."--
