City Beyond Time: Tales of the Fall of Metachro...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Metachronopolis is the golden city beyond time. Ruled by the Masters of Time, who can travel freely throughout the multitudinous time lines of man's history, the city is a shining society of heroes and horrors. For, the arrogant masters - who steal famous men and women out of the past and bring them to the eternal city for their amusement - are not only beyond time, but beyond remorse and retribution, too.City Beyond Time: Tales of the Fall of Metachronopolis is John C. Wright's mind-bending and astonishingly brilliant take on time travel. In making use of a centuries-spanning perspective similar to his highly regarded Awake in the Night Land, Wright expertly weaves a larger tale out of a series of smaller ones. Part anthology and part novel, City Beyond Time is fascinating, melancholic, frightening, and a true masterpiece of story-telling. DRM-free. John C. Wright is the author of The Golden Age and Awake in the Night Land. He has been described as one of the most important and audacious authors in science fiction today. In a recent poll of more than a thousand science fiction readers, he was chosen as the sixth greatest living science fiction writer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Daw.

The end of the Ice Age: A time of melting glaciers, mass extinctions, unpredictable dangers…and young heroes Though only twelve summers old, Twig is a talented Dreamer. Sometimes she has spirit dreams—dreams that come true. But her mother has always discouraged Twig from exploring her powers for fear that they would turn her strange, like the reclusive witch-woman Cobia. When Twig begins to have recurring nightmares about a green light exploding from the sky and causing widespread destruction, she must find the courage to defy her mother and learn to become a Spirit Dreamer. Helping Twig on her quest are her best friend, Greyhawk, and Screech Owl, a shaman who has been banished from the village. Together, they must persuade their people to leave the land of their ancestors and journey to the mysterious Duskland, far from only home they’ve ever known. Can Twig convince the Elders that she is a true Spirit Dreamer—before it’s too late? Set 13,000 years ago in what is now the northeastern United States and Ontario, Canada, Children of the Dawnland is an unforgettable adventure about a visionary girl by internationally-bestselling authors and archaeologists Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear. In writing and researching this book, the Gears visited the archaeological sites in New York, Ontario, Ohio, and Pennsylvania that play a role in the story. By allowing us to see through the eyes of prehistoric cultures, the Gears hope we can learn from them at a time of similar environmental change.

The Forgotten Heroes
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The United States Merchant Marine has a tradition of being in the forefront of every American military action and has served with distinction in every conflict. New York Times bestselling author Brian Herbert chronicles the amazing exploits of these gallant seamen, assembling a fascinating array of data from historical documents, government records, diaries, and interviews with surviving veterans. This brilliant history details the heroism, self-sacrifice and grim determination that have always been the hallmark of the United States Merchant Marine. Herbert also reveals one of the great injustices of American history. The civilian fighters of the Merchant Marine performed feats of extraordinary bravery during World War II; they were the lifeline of the entire Allied war effort, delivering troops, materiel, food, fuel, and every essential needed for victory over the Axis. In doing so, the Merchant Marine suffered losses so high that the casualty rates were kept secret. At war's end, the men and women of every other service branch were honored by parades and given medical and educational benefits--but the members of the Merchant Marine, who were so vital to our victory, have received neither the benefits nor the recognition they deserved. Herbert is part of a growing movement across the United States to right the wrong. The Forgotten Heroes is a history of these unsung heroes and a plea for justice.
