Here is the saga of humanity reduced, by an implacable alien enemy, inhabiting a single colony on the distant world of Safehold. To avoid drawing the attention of the enemy through the busy signals of an industrial civilization, the human rulers of Safehold have taken an extraordinary measure. With mind control and hidden high technology, they have built a religion in which every Safeholdian believes, one designed to keep Safehold society medieval and unnoticed forever. After disagreement about the wisdom and justice of this course, the dissenters were ruthlessly eliminated. Centuries have passed and now, in a hidden chamber on Safehold, an android initiates a rebirth set in motion centuries before. A rebirth that will provide the only remaining humans with their last chance to learn the truth and to rejoin the universe. It is destined to be a tremendous undertaking, unfolding a story of deception and ignorance, freedom and tyranny, and the liberating power of the truth. "Nobody does space opera better than Weber". ("Publishers Weekly").

Growing Up with Comedians CENTURY

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the author of the acclaimed "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers", and the dark and scabrous "Seasonal Suicide Notes", here at last comes the definitive book about comic geniuses by a man whom "The Sunday Times" has hailed as 'brilliantly funny ...a comic genius.' Growing up in South Wales, the precocious Roger Lewis longed to lock himself away from the world and listen to bootleg cassettes of "The Goon Show" and "Derek and Clive Live". He was a connoisseur of Norman Wisdom and Terry-Thomas, the Marx Bros, Ealing films and On the Buses. Once he reached university, his love for the art of comedy never waned, and he could never fathom why the grisly hairy-nosed academics considered comedy trivial, comedians frivolous. In Lewis' view, comedy has more significance than tragedy - the supposed pinnacle of art - because comedy, like real life, admits to misrule and incapacity, accepts the inconsequential, harbours extravagance and eccentricity, and endorses the fact that, in the end, nothing adds up. "Growing Up With Comedians" contains incisive portraits of the world's most treasured performers and complicated personalities - from Chaplin to Tati, Hancock to Hawtrey, Kenneth Williams to Spike Milligan, Terry Gilliam to Barry Humphries, and W.C. Fields to Benny Hill, amongst others. What makes these artists tick? What lurks beneath the public face? And where does talent end, ego begin, and periods of madness take over? From pompous control freaks to unpredictable originals, Lewis, as only he knows how, examines the strangeness and hidden sorrow found behind the excruciating facades. By turns lyrical, poignant, and always insanely perceptive, "Growing Up With Comedians" is another unforgettable high-heat masterpiece by Roger Lewis.
