9780857521774: The Long Utopia: (The Long Earth 4)

2045-2059. After the cataclysmic upheavals of Step Day and the Yellowstone eruption humanity is spreading further into the Long Earth, and society, on a battered Datum Earth and beyond, continues to evolve.
Now an elderly and cantankerous AI, Lobsang lives in disguise with Agnes in an exotic, far-distant world. He’s convinced they’re leading a normal life in New Springfield – they even adopt a child – but it seems they have been guided there for a reason. As rumours of strange sightings and hauntings proliferate, it becomes clear that something is very awry with this particular world.
Millions of steps away, Joshua is on a personal journey of discovery: learning about the father he never knew and a secret family history. But then he receives a summons from New Springfield. Lobsang now understands the enormity of what’s taking place beneath the surface of his earth – a threat to all the worlds of the Long Earth.
To counter this threat will require the combined efforts of humankind, machine and the super-intelligent Next. And some must make the ultimate sacrifice . . .

Recensione:

"There's plenty of fun to be had from this . . . a hymn to the joys of unfettered world-building . . . but if the pace of plotting is gentle, the restless inventiveness more than compensates." (Adam Roberts GUARDIAN)

"Rich in an awe-inspiring sense of wonder, with mind-boggling concepts thrown out like sparks from a Catherine wheel." (Barry Forshaw INDEPENDENT)

"A triumph . . . brings fresh and exciting concepts to an SF staple (paralell worlds) while keeping credible human characters at their heart . . . as testament both to the diversity of Sir Terry Pratchett's writing, and the skill of Stephen Baxter's, The Long Earth series deserves a place on the bookshelves of hardcore SF fans and general readers alike." (David Barnett INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

"The Long Earth novels are beautifully visual and wittily imagined . . . The Long Utopia . . . serves to remind us just how bewitching and rich this series is, how beautiful is its writing, and vivid its imagination." ( FOR WINTER NIGHTS)

"There's the sense of two enviably talented writers having fun as they play in an infinite fictional universe." (Jonathan Wright SFX)

Descrizione del libro:

The dazzling new science fiction adventure from the extraordinary imaginations of Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter - the fourth novel in a collaborative series that has been hailed as 'sense-of-wonder SF at its best' ( Independent on Sunday).

Descrizione libro Transworld Publ. Ltd UK Jun 2015, 2015. Taschenbuch. Condizione libro: Neu. 232x154x35 mm. Neuware - Terry Pratchett, geboren 1948, fand im zarten Alter von 13 Jahren den ersten Käufer für eine seiner Geschichten. Der kleine Mann mit dem großen schwarzen Schlapphut zählte zu den erfolgreichsten Autoren Großbritanniens und ist einer der populärsten Fantasy-Autoren der Welt. Seit 1983 schrieb er Scheibenwelt-Romane. Er war zweifellos der Autor mit dem skurrilsten ehemaligen Beruf: Terry Pratchett war jahrelang Pressesprecher für fünf Atomkraftwerke beim Central Electricity Generating Board. Nach eigener Auskunft hatte er nur deshalb noch kein Buch darüber geschrieben, weil es ihm ja doch keiner glauben würde. Seinen Sinn für Realsatire hat der schrille Job jedenfalls geschärft. Von seinen Scheibenwelt-Romanen wurden weltweit rund 75 Millionen Exemplare verkauft, seine Werke sind in 37 Sprachen übersetzt. Für seine Verdienste um die englische Literatur wurde ihm sogar die Ritterwürde verliehen. Umgeben von den modernsten Computern (und so durch ein Stück Schnur mit dem Rest der Welt verbunden) lebte Terry Pratchett mit seiner Frau Lyn bis zu seinem Tode 2015 in der englischen Grafschaft Wiltshire. 360 pp. Englisch.
