Desvelada la portada de Impersonations

Aquí os traigo la portada de la nueva obra de Walter Jon Williams, titulada Impersonations, una novella dentro de la línea de Tor.Com.

Este es el blurb:

Nebula Award-winning author Walter Jon Williams returns to the sweeping space opera adventure of his Praxis universe with an exciting new novel featuring the hero of Dread Empire’s Fall!

Having offended her superiors by winning a battle without permission, Caroline Sula has been posted to the planet Earth, a dismal backwater where careers go to die. But Sula has always been fascinated by Earth history, and she plans to reward herself with a long, happy vacation amid the ancient monuments of humanity’s home world.

Sula may be an Earth history buff, but there are aspects of her own history she doesn’t want known. Exposure is threatened when an old acquaintance turns up unexpectedly. Someone seems to be forging evidence that would send her to prison. And all that is before someone tries to kill her.

If she’s going to survive, Sula has no choice but to make some history of her own.

Portada Wolfhound Empire

Desde Gollancz nos dejan ver la que será portada del omnibús Wolfhound Empire, que incluirá la trilogía completa de Peter Higgins ( Wolfhound Century, Truth and Fear y Radiant State).

Me alegra muchísimo la publicación de este compendio, por la calidad de sus libros (aunque me falta por leer el último) y por la extrema amabilidad de Peter, que se comportó estupendamente con nosotros en Loncon. Y si ya de paso baja el precio del ebook de Radiant State, ni te cuento.

Subterranean Press publicará Miniatures: The very short fiction of John Scalzi

A principios de 2017 Subterranean Press publicará Miniatures: The very short fiction of John Scalzi, una recopilación de la mejor ficción corta (muy corta) de John Scalzi.

Aquí os dejo la nota de prensa:

The ex-planet Pluto has a few choice words about being thrown out of the solar system. A listing of alternate histories tells you all the various ways Hitler has died. A lawyer sues an interplanetary union for dangerous working conditions. And four artificial intelligences explain, in increasingly worrying detail, how they plan not to destroy humanity.

Welcome to Miniatures: The Very Short Fiction of John Scalzi.

These four stories, along with fourteen other pieces, have one thing in common: They’re short, sharp, and to the point—science fiction in miniature, with none of the stories longer than 2,300 words. But in that short space exist entire universes, absurd situations, and the sort of futuristic humor that propelled Scalzi to a Hugo with his novel Redshirts. Not to mention yogurt taking over the world (as it would).

Spanning the years from 1991 to 2016, this collection is a quarter century of Scalzi at his briefest and best, and features four never-before-printed stories, exclusive to this collection: “Morning Announcements at the Lucas Interspecies School for Troubled Youth,” “Your Smart Appliances Talk About You Behind Your Back,” “Important Holidays on Gronghu” and “The AI Are Absolutely Positively Without a Doubt Not Here to End Humanity, Honest.”

Portadas décimo aniversario

Hace poco Armando se hacía eco del décimo aniversario de la publicación de una grandísima obra fantástica, Las mentiras de Locke Lamora. Pero es que este año hay varias obras más que alcanzan esta estupenda cifra, y los chicos de Gollancz han decidido celebrarlo con ediciones nuevas. Aquí tenéis las portadas de unos libros que han cambiado la faz de la fantasía en este siglo (menos The storm caller, que reconozco no haber leido).

Portada de Walkaway

Aquí os traigo la portada de la nueva novela adulta de Cory Doctorow, Walkaway.

La sinopsis:

Hubert, Seth, and their ultra-rich heiress friend Natalie are getting a little old to hang out at the “Communist parties,” techno-raveups in abandoned industrial spaces, full of insta-printed drugs and toys. And Natalie was finished, years ago, with her overcontrolling zillionaire dad.

And now that anyone can manufacture food, clothing, shelter with equipment comparable to a computer printer, there seems to be little reason to to stick with the world of rules and jobs. So, like hundreds of thousands of others in the mid-21st century, the three of them…walk away.

Mind you, it’s still dangerous out there. Much of the countryside is wrecked by climate change, and predators are with us always. Yet when the initial pioneer walkaways flourish, more people join them. Then the walkaways discover the one thing the ultra-rich have never been able to buy: how to beat death.

Now it’s war—a war that will turn the world upside down.

Fascinating, moving, and darkly humorous, Walkaway is a multi-generation SF thriller about the wrenching changes of the next hundred years…and the very human people who will live their consequences.

Seveneves será adaptada al cine

Ron Howard y Brian Grazer están trabajando en la adaptación de Seveneves, la colosal obra de Neal Stephenson.

Hasta ahora ninguna obra del autor se había conseguido adaptar, quizá debido a la longitud de sus novelas. Lo cual no parece ser un impedimento en este caso, ya que Seveneves no es precisamente una obra ligera o corta. ¿Aprovecharán el rebufo de El Marciano, Gravity o Interestellar?
