The Crack in Space

In **The Crack in Space**, a repairman discovers that a hole in a faulty Jifi-scuttler leads to a parallel world. Jim Briskin, campaigning to be the first black president of the United States, thinks alter-Earth is the solution to the chronic overpopulation that has seventy million people cryogenically frozen; Tito Cravelli, a shadowy private detective, wants to know why Dr Lurton Sands is hiding his mistress on the planet; billionaire mutant George Walt wants to make the empty world all his own. But when the other earth turns out to be inhabited, everything changes.
Winner of both the Hugo and John W. Campbell awards for best novel, widely regarded as the premiere science fiction writer of his day, and the object of cult-like adoration from his legions of fans, Philip K. Dick has come to be seen in a literary light that defies classification in much the same way as Borges and Calvino. With breathtaking insight, he utilizes vividly unfamiliar worlds to evoke the hauntingly and hilariously familiar in our society and ourselves.

**To live, I must tempt the angels of death.**
It’s been 18 months since the angels of the apocalypse ripped our world apart. Before, I was a burlesque dancer, decked in sequins and feathers at the hippest clubs. Now, I live in an abandoned hospital in East London, scavenging for scraps.
At least, until I get the chance to fight back against the disturbingly seductive angels. In fact, I’m going undercover as a spy in their castle. I have two goals: learn their weaknesses, and find my missing sister.
Problem is, I have to pretend to be someone I’m not: an alluring succubus. If one of the angels discovers who I really am, the fate of the world could lie in ruins.
I can’t let that happen. The angels tried to destroy my world, and it’s my turn to ravage theirs.

The Coup

*The Coup* describes violent events in the imaginary African nation of Kush, a large, landlocked, drought-ridden, sub-Saharan country led by Colonel Hakim Félix Ellelloû. (“A leader,” writes Colonel Ellelloû, “is one who, out of madness or goodness, takes upon himself the woe of a people. There are few men so foolish.”) Colonel Ellelloû has four wives, a silver Mercedes, and a fanatic aversion—cultural, ideological, and personal—to the United States. But the U.S. keeps creeping into Kush, and the repercussions of this incursion constitute the events of the novel. Colonel Ellelloû tells his own story—always elegantly, and often in the third person—from an undisclosed location in the South of France.

Cosima

Pur sotto forma romanzesca, “Cosima” è l’autobiografia di Grazia Deledda pubblicata postuma nel 1937. In “Cosima” si apprende che gli anni dell’infanzia e dell’adolescenza della Deledda furono segnati da una ininterrotta catena di sciagure. Un fratello, Santus, precipita nell’alcolismo sino al delirium tremens, l’altro fratello, Andrea, viene arrestato, anche se per piccoli furti, provocando la morte di crepacuore del padre, e la conseguente perdita dell’agiatezza. La sorella Giovanna muore di angina in tenera età, e un’altra sorella, Enza, muore a ventun’anni in un tentativo di aborto, attanagliata dal senso di colpa per aver sposato un uomo di condizione inferiore fra l’esecrazione dei parenti. Una terza sorella, Beppa, verrà invece atrocemente beffata dopo la promessa di fidanzamento fattale da un pretendente “continentale”. Si trova nel romanzo inoltre qualche fugace accenno ai difficili esordi sessuali di Cosima/Grazia, i quali danno la misura del clima di feroce arretratezza che incatenava l’esistenza della scrittrice. Queste difficoltà ambientali, unite al clima di soffocante pregiudizio verso la sua nascente vocazione letteraria, dovettero maturare nella Deledda quei fermi propositi di fuga dall’ambiente nuorese e sardo, che in seguito si realizzeranno soltanto grazie all’unica soluzione possibile per una donna del suo tempo (a meno di possedere un’idea di ribellione sociale, peraltro mai presa in considerazione dalla scrittrice sarda), vale a dire: il matrimonio. La meta della fuga, il luogo del sogno è Roma. Proprio a una rivista romana la Deledda inviò la sua prima novella, cui seguirono generosi incoraggiamenti e l’invito a inviarne altre. Ma non saranno ancora questi primi, fuggevoli successi a consentirle il sognato abbandono dell’isola: bisognerà aspettare ancora. Sino a quando a Cagliari, in un’aura un po’ inverosimile come in quelle fiabe tanto amate dalla scrittrice nell’infanzia, Cosima/Grazia incontra “l’uomo della salvezza”: l’impiegato romano Palmiro Madesani, che la Deledda sposerà nel giro di pochi mesi, trasferendosi con lui finalmente a Roma.

Corsair

Swashbuckling captain Gareth Radnor has taken command of the Steadfast. But the young captain intends more than seeking his fortune. He wants vengeance against the Linyati slavers who murdered his family. Crewed by a motley band of adventurers, his carrack plunges through the salty waves, striking at the Linyati wherever it can.
And then he discovers something more compelling even than revenge: The Linyati aren’t human . . .
**Recensie(s)**

A hard-edged, salty brew of pirates, treasure maps and sea battles from one of our most dependable storytellers, Corsair is a fantasy/adventure tale that will keep you up late reading and send you off to bed with memorable dreams * Terry Brooks * Slam-bang excitement, lusty action and military magic…fast-paced and ferocious * Julian May * Rich and convincing … will leave you eagerly awaiting the next instalment * SFX * Chris Bunch ends the drought of pirate adventure novels with the swashbuckling fantasy Corsair, a coming-of-age novel about Gareth Radnor, an honourable young man who goes to sea after Linyati slavers kill his parents. When Gareth finds himself serving aboard a Sarosian ship transporting slaves, he joins with other crewmen to seize control of the vessel–and eventually becomes the captain of a pirate ship preying on slave ships–freeing the human cargo. His cunning and implacable attacks soon have him pursued by all the gunships and sorcerers of the Linyati, and the slavers will do everything in their considerable power to destroy Gareth Radnor. * Cynthia Ward, Amazon.com *

Corsair

For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought readers into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet. Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates . . . who look like something else. When the U.S. secretary of state’s plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hire Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya’s new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen. But what does it all have to do with a two- hundred- year-old naval battle and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead him full circle into history, and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome. “Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines,” writes Publishers Weekly of the Oregon Files series. And they’ll do it once again, with Corsair.

Coraline

EDITORIAL REVIEW: The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring…. In Coraline’s family’s new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close. The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own. Only it’s different. At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom, books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer, little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there’s another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to *change* her and never let her go. Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself. Critically acclaimed and award-winning author Neil Gaiman will delight readers with his first novel for all ages.
