The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Mark Haddon


Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. Routine, order and predictability shelter him from the messy, wider world. Then, at fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbor’s dog, Wellington, impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer and turns to his favorite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As he tries to deal with the crisis within his own family,…


The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny Simon Green


Things were going so well for P.I. John Taylor, that it was only a matter of time before everything hit the fan. Walker, the powerful, ever-present, never-to-be-trusted agent who runs the Nightside on behalf of The Authorities, is dying. And he wants John to be his successor—a job that comes with more baggage, and more enemies, than anyone can possibly imagine.


Just Another Judgement Day Simon Green


There's a new sheriff in town, and he's got the Nightside's rich and powerful quaking in their boots. He's The Walking Man, and it's his mission to exorcise sinners — with extreme prejudice. Problem is, the Nightside was built on sin and corruption, and The Walking Man makes no distinction between evildoers and those simply indulging themselves. He'll leave the place a wasteland unless someone stops him, and P.I. John Taylor has been handed the job. No known magic or science can affect The Walking Man, and if John can't discover his weakness, he'll be facing the very Wrath of God.

When I Stop Talking You Jerry Weintraub


Here is the story of Jerry Weintraub: the self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. No matter where nature has placed him-the club rooms of Brooklyn, the Mafia dives of New York 's Lower East Side, the wilds of Alaska, or the hills of Hollywood -he has found a way to put on a show and sell tickets at the door. "All life was a theater and I wanted to put it up on a stage," he writes. "I wanted to set the world under a marquee that read: 'Jerry Weintraub Presents.'"

Volo di drago Anne McCaffrey


La trilogia dei «Dragonieri di Pern», di cui «Volo di Drago» è la prima parte, è uno dei più interessanti cicli narrativi che la fantascienza ha prodotto in questi ultimi anni nel suo sforzo di rinnovamento interno, tematico e stilistico; è il tentativo ad ampio respiro di creare «ex novo» una mitologia complessa e coordinata, che non sia un semplice adattamento di mitologie «terrestri». Esso è dovuto ad un nome nuovo, lanciato da John Campbell sulle pagine di «Analog», Anne McCaffrey, che si rivela scrittrice sensibile, originale e dalle notevoli doti letterarie. Sia i lettori che i critici statunitensi hanno testimoniato illoro apprezzamento per quest’opera, i cui diversi capitoli sono apparsi in più riprese sulle riviste di Campbell: i primi assegnando il Premio Hugo 1968 per il miglior romanzo breve alla parte iniziale del romanzo; i secondi il Premio Nebula 1969 per la stessa categoria all’ultima parte di esso. Anne McCaffrey è stata così la prima donna a vincere…
