In einer fernen Zukunft wird die Erde nur noch von wenigen Menschen bevölkert. Sie führen in ihren jugendlichen Körpern ein Leben, das viele Jahrhunderte währt, und manche von ihnen besitzen eine Gabe: Einzig durch ihren Wunsch und eine flüchtige Berührung sind sie fähig, Materie zu beseelen. In dieser wundersamen, von einer bizarren Mechafauna dominierten Welt lebt Ninive, die auf der Suche nach uralten Relikten das Hochland durchstreift, um längst vergessenen Dingen Leben einzuhauchen und sich ihre Geschichten anzuhören. Das alles beherrschende Bauwerk ist eine vier Kilometer hohe Mauer, von der niemand weiß, wozu sie einst errichtet wurde und wovor sie die Menschen und Maschinen seit Jahrtausenden schützt – bis ein Gesandter aus der letzten Stadt im Hochland auftaucht, der den Auftrag hat, die Bannmauer zu bezwingen. Und er ist der nicht der Einzige, der die verlorene Passage in die Welt dahinter sucht ... DER KANON MECHANISCHER SEELEN ist eine Hommage an Stanislaw Lems "Kyberiade" und seine Robotermärchen, an Miyazaki-Trickfilme wie "Chihiros Reise ins Zauberland" und "Das wandelnde Schloss", an Michael Moorcocks "Am Ende der Zeit", garniert mit einem Schuss "Alice hinter den Spiegeln". Das SF–Romanereignis des Jahres - Gewinner des Seraph und des Kurd Laßwitz-Preises als "Bester Roman"

The classic postapocalyptic thriller with “all the reality of a vividly realized nightmare” (The Times, London). Triffids are odd, interesting little plants that grow in everyone’s garden. Triffids are no more than mere curiosities—until an event occurs that alters human life forever. What seems to be a spectacular meteor shower turns into a bizarre, green inferno that blinds everyone and renders humankind helpless. What follows is even stranger: spores from the inferno cause the triffids to suddenly take on a life of their own. They become large, crawling vegetation, with the ability to uproot and roam about the country, attacking humans and inflicting pain and agony. William Masen somehow managed to escape being blinded in the inferno, and now after leaving the hospital, he is one of the few survivors who can see. And he may be the only one who can save his species from chaos and eventual extinction . . . With more than a million copies sold, The Day of the Triffids is a landmark of speculative fiction, and “an outstanding and entertaining novel” (Library Journal). “A thoroughly English apocalypse, it rivals H. G. Wells in conveying how the everyday invaded by the alien would feel. No wonder Stephen King admires Wyndham so much.” —Ramsey Campbell “One of my all-time favorite novels. It’s absolutely convincing, full of little telling details, and that sweet, warm sensation of horror and mystery.” —Joe R. Lansdale

1855: The Industrial Revolution is in full and inexorable swing, powered by steam-driven cybernetic Engines. Charles Babbage perfects his Analytical Engine and the computer age arrives a century ahead of its time. And three extraordinary characters race toward a rendezvous with history—and the future: Sybil Gerard—a fallen woman, politician’s tart, daughter of a Luddite agitator Edward “Leviathan” Mallory—explorer and paleontologist Laurence Oliphant—diplomat, mystic, and spy. Their adventure begins with the discovery of a box of punched Engine cards of unknown origin and purpose. Cards someone wants badly enough to kill for…. Part detective story, part historical thriller, The Difference Engine is the collaborative masterpiece by two of the most acclaimed science fiction authors writing today. Provocative, compelling, intensely imagined, it is a startling extension of Gibson’s and Sterling’s unique visions—and the beginning of movement we know today as “steampunk!” From the Paperback edition.

An atmospheric and intrigue-filled novel of dead gods, buried histories, and a mysterious, protean city--from one of America's most acclaimed young fantasy writers. The city of Bulikov once wielded the powers of the gods to conquer the world, enslaving and brutalizing millions—until its divine protectors were killed. Now Bulikov has become just another colonial outpost of the world's new geopolitical power, but the surreal landscape of the city itself—first shaped, now shattered, by the thousands of miracles its guardians once worked upon it—stands as a constant, haunting reminder of its former supremacy. Into this broken city steps Shara Thivani. Officially, the unassuming young woman is just another junior diplomat sent by Bulikov's oppressors. Unofficially, she is one of her country's most accomplished spies, dispatched to catch a murderer. But as Shara pursues the killer, she starts to suspect that the beings who ruled this terrible place may not be as dead as they seem—and that Bulikov's cruel reign may not yet be over.

From Robert Charles Wilson, the Hugo Award-winning author of Spin, comes Julian Comstock, an exuberant adventure in a post-climate-change America. In the reign of President Deklan Comstock, a reborn United States is struggling back to prosperity. Over a century after the Efflorescence of Oil, after the Fall of the Cities, after the False Tribulation, after the days of the Pious Presidents, the sixty stars and thirteen stripes wave from the plains of Athabaska to the national capital in New York. In Colorado Springs, the Dominion sees to the nation's spiritual needs. In Labrador, the Army wages war on the Dutch. America, unified, is rising once again. Then out of Labrador come tales of the war hero "Captain Commongold." The masses follow his adventures in the popular press. The Army adores him. The President is...troubled. Especially when the dashing Captain turns out to be his nephew Julian, son of the President's late brother Bryce—a popular general who challenged the President's power, and paid the ultimate price. As Julian ascends to the pinnacle of power, his admiration for the works of the Secular Ancients sets him at fatal odds with the Dominion. Treachery and intrigue will dog him as he closes in on the accomplishment of his lifelong ambition: to make a film about the life of Charles Darwin.

CEO Artur Drakon has been betrayed. The Syndicate Worlds’ government failed to protect its citizens from both the Alliance and the alien enigmas. With a cadre of reliable soldiers under his command, Drakon launches a battle for control of the Midway Star System—assisted by an ally he’s unsure he can trust… CEO Gwen Iceni was exiled to Midway because she wasn’t ruthless enough in the eyes of her superiors.

If their coup is to succeed, Drakon and Iceni must put their differences aside to prevent the population of Midway from rebelling against them, to defend their star system from the enigmas—and to ferret out saboteurs determined to reestablish Syndic rule…

Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. Es ist Winter, und eine weitere Expedition übertritt die Grenze zu Area X. Während sie, auf der Suche nach einem verschollenen Mitglied einer früheren Expedition, tiefer ins Unbekannte vordringt und mit neuen Herausforderungen konfrontiert wird, nimmt die Bedrohung der Außenwelt durch Area X immer beängstigendere Ausmaße an. Die Geheimnisse von Area X mögen zwar gelüftet worden sein, doch ihre Implikationen und Konsequenzen sind abgrundtief erschreckend.
