Six often overlooked award-caliber sci-fi short novels and novelettes. All the stories in this unique anthology were voted to be among the top stories of their year. We believe each would be a top story of any year. Rog Phillips’ other stories are eclipsed by his psychological thriller, the brilliant Rat in the Skull, which received a well-deserved Hugo Award nomination. In H. L. Gold’s ´´Inside Man”, he dreams up brand-new wrinkles on ESP no one else, including you, has ever thought of. The special quality of this work was endorsed by his colleagues when it was nominated for the Nebula Award for best short story. The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction praises Leigh Brackett’s ´´The Stellar Legion” for its color, narrative speed, the brooding forthrightness of its protagonists, and the economy and vigor of her style, so it is hardly surprising that it earned a Retro Hugo Award nomination. Cordwainer Smith‘s ´´Scanners Live in Vain” also earned a Retro Hugo nomination. Evelyn Martin’s Reluctant Eve, winner of the Jules Verne Prize for most outstanding achievement in the science-fiction field for 1956, was the first science-fiction romance and is still an enthralling story today. Don Wilcox´s ´´The Voyage That Lasted 600 Years” (1940) was the first generation starship story and the first to incorporate the breakthrough notion of Earth developing faster-than-light ships that beat the generation ship to its destination - a worthy recipient of a Retro Hugo nomination. Wherever you are on the spectrum of science-fiction knowledge or fandom, you’ll find hours of enthralling listening (and relistening): forgotten favorites for long-time science-fiction fans and an introductory grand tour for those new to the genre. 1.

Pays de la Loire: The Vendée

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This new title from Bradt is the only English-language guide to focus on Pays de la Loire: The Vendée and surrounding area including Pornic, La Rochelle, Ile de Ré and Nantes, an increasingly popular part of France. Written by award-winning travel writer Murray Stewart and Angela Bird, who for almost 50 years has owned a home in the region, it offers comprehensive coverage of this beguiling area, with details on everything from family holidays to walks, cycling, local cuisine and history. Thanks to the author´s long history with the area, the guide also reveals the quirks and themes which give the Vendée its own distinct character, as well as straying just beyond the area´s boundaries to incorporate La Rochelle and Nantes, both entry points for those arriving by air and both offering urban distractions for the occasional rainy day. The Vendée offers all the benefits of a well-established destination. Popular with campers and self-caterers, its sunny climate and 140km of sandy beaches, combined with tree-lined canals and open marshland, make for a diverse outdoor playground. Bradt´s The Vendée and surrounding area includes information on suggested walks and cycleways, and also summarizes the best places for bird-watching. The region has no true cities, or even large towns, but the guide includes details of the many local museums which provide easily accessible insight into the bloody history of an area which has, at times, been central to the evolution of modern-day France.

Alone Time: Four Seasons, Four Cities, and the ...

In Paris (or anywhere else, really) a table for one can be a most delightful place. (Alone Time, as seen in The New York Times)A wise, passionate account of the pleasures of travelling solo In our increasingly frantic daily lives, many people are genuinely fearful of the prospect of solitude, but time alone can be both rich and restorative, especially when travelling. Through on-the-ground reporting and recounting the experiences of artists, writers, and innovators who cherished solitude, Stephanie Rosenbloom considers how being alone as a traveler - and even in one´s own city - is conducive to becoming acutely aware of the sensual details of the world - patterns, textures, colors, tastes, sounds - in ways that are difficult to do in the company of others. Alone Time is divided into four parts, each set in a different city, in a different season, in a single year. The destinations - Paris, Istanbul, Florence, New York - are all pedestrian-friendly, allowing travelers to slow down and appreciate casual pleasures instead of hurtling through museums and posting photos to Instagram. Each section spotlights a different theme associated with the joys and benefits of time alone and how it can enable people to enrich their lives - facilitating creativity, learning, self-reliance, as well as the ability to experiment and change. Rosenbloom incorporates insights from psychologists and sociologists who have studied solitude and happiness, and explores such topics as dining alone, learning to savor, discovering interests and passions, and finding or creating silent spaces. Her engaging and elegant prose makes Alone Time as warmly intimate an account as the details of a trip shared by a beloved friend - and will have its many listeners eager to set off on their own solo adventures. 1.

Sri Lanka

The new sixth edition of Bradt´s Sri Lanka is the longest and by far the most comprehensive guidebook ever published to this alluring island nation, and now includes a brand new, detailed, full-colour wildlife section. Freshly researched and completely rewritten by Philip Briggs, one of the world´s most experienced and highly-regarded guidebook writers, it the new Bradt guide incorporates detailed coverage of every aspect of this diverse and compact land, from the idyllic tropical coastline to the misty forests of hill country. Not only does the book provide in-depth sections on all major beach resorts, archaeological reserves, historic towns and national parks, but it also introduces adventurous travellers to a host of intriguing lesser-known sites, along with many emergent destinations inaccessible for decades prior to the end of the civil war in 2009. Extensive hotel and restaurant listings, covering everything from exclusive boutique hotels to shoestring homestays, have been compiled from scratch rather than updated from historical information, with each entry having been cherry-picked by the author based on his personal inspection of hundreds upon hundreds of properties countrywide. More than 70 newly-drawn maps cover all towns and resorts of note, as well as the main national parks and their surrounds. Sri Lanka has enjoyed a high level of political stability and safety since the civil war ended in May 2009, encouraging a tourist boom in the south, and the gradual opening of the north and east to independent travel. Beach holidays are an all-year attraction, while a host of fantastic Buddhist-affiliated UNESCO World Heritage Sites ranges from the massive dagobas of Anuradhapura, built in pre-Christian times on a scale to rival the Egyptian pyramids, to the exquisitely painted cave temples of Dambulla. Wildlife-viewing opportunities abound, and this guide provides unparalleled, illustrated advice on making the most of these. Asia´s densest wild elephant and leopard populations are protected in the island´s extensive network of national parks, and there´s also fine offshore whale and dolphin-watching, and a bird checklist of 430 species including more than 30 endemics.
