Description:

Astronauts explore an alien spacecraft hurtling toward the sun in this Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novel—“a stone-cold classic” of hard sci-fi (The Guardian).   An enormous cylindrical object has entered Earth’s solar system on a collision course with the sun. A team of astronauts are sent to explore the mysterious craft, which the denizens of the solar system name Rama. What they find is astonishing evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours. They find an interior stretching over fifty kilometers; a forbidding cylindrical sea; mysterious and inaccessible buildings; and strange machine-animal hybrids, or “biots,” that inhabit the ship. But what they don’t find is an alien presence. So who—and where—are the Ramans?   Often listed as one of Clarke’s finest novels, Rendezvous with Rama won numerous awards, including the Hugo, the Nebula, the Jupiter, and the British Science Fiction Awards. A fast-paced and compelling story of an enigmatic encounter with alien technology, Rendezvous with Rama offers both answers and unsolved mysteries that will continue to fascinate readers for generations.   “Mr. Clarke is splendid . . . We experience that chilling touch of the alien, the not-quite-knowable, that distinguishes SF at its most technically imaginative.” —The New York Times

Description:

The “beautiful” novel that inspired the film starring David Bowie, from a Nebula Award finalist (The New York Times).
 
The Man Who Fell to Earth tells the story of Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien disguised as a human who comes to Earth on a mission to save his people. Devastated by nuclear war, his home planet, Anthea, is no longer habitable. Newton lands in Kentucky and starts patenting Anthean technology—amassing the fortune he needs to build a spaceship that will bring the last three hundred Anthean survivors to Earth.
 
But instead of the help he seeks, he finds only self-destruction, sinking into alcoholism and abandoning his spaceship, in this poignant story about the human condition by the acclaimed author of Mockingbird.
 
“Beautiful science fiction . . . The story of an extraterrestrial visitor from another planet is designed mainly to say something about life on this one.” —The New York Times
 
“An utterly realistic novel about an alien human on Earth . . . Realistic enough to become a metaphor for something inside us all, some existential loneliness.” —Norman Spinrad, author of The Iron Dream
 
“Those who know The Man Who Fell to Earth only from the film version are missing something. This is one of the finest science fiction novels of its period.” —J. R. Dunn, author of This Side of Judgment

Description:

Researcher John Whiley lives a relatively mundane life, working in a Chicago office building. But when his colleagues are murdered in broad daylight, by a pitiless assassin, he finds his world turned upside down. Escaping with the help of a woman called Beatrix, John is still in danger from the attentions of the mysterious killer and must somehow find the answers to the reasons behind the attack. His investigation stumbles upon a clue that the massacre has something to do with a subversive book of economics. There is a connection between the socio-economic change in the global population and a medical essay on experimental cancer treatment connected to an obscure Chinese laboratory. Meanwhile would-be assassin Kevin Palmer has travelled from Okinawa to Paris to meticulously prepare for a momentous event. With his determination to eliminate the Pope, this ghostlike killer is on an unstoppable path that may change the destiny of all humanity. As a network of investigators frantically search for him they unearth a key character, known as Janus, who plies his nefarious trade in the virtual world. In a race against time, the investigators must stop the hitman before he is ready to squeeze the trigger. Will one man’s actions change the destiny of the world? What is the connection between a book and the future of the planet? And are John Whiley and the Pope’s lives somehow interconnected after all? Set in the near future, Futura is a novel where parallel stories run on alternate pages and competing economic and religious needs become blurred and ever closer. Many elements of it appear to provide us with an interpretive key of our current reality, particularly in the pandemic era where nothing is as it seems.
