BioShock: Rapture by , Summary

It's the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal has redefined American politics. Taxes are at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has brought a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business has many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom is diminishing . . . and many are desperate to take that freedom back. Among them is a great dreamer, an immigrant who pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and admired men in the world. That man is Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserve better. And so he set out to create the impossible, a utopia free from government, censorship, and moral restrictions on science--where what you give is what you get. He created Rapture---the shining city below the sea. But as we all know, this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be . . .and how it all ended. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Metro 2034 by Dmitrij Gluhovski Summary

RAZBOJI ISTORIJE SU STALI. U SVETU BEZ BUDUĆNOSTI MALO JE KOME BILO DO NJIH ... TKANINA SE OSULA I OD NJE JE OSTALA ČITAVA SAMO JEDNA NIT... I ZAISTA ŠTA ČOVEKA ČINI ČOVEKOM ... Dve hiljade trideset četvrta. Prošla je još jedna godina u kojoj poslednji pripadnici ljudske rase pokušavaju da prežive u svetu uništenom nuklearnim ratom. Veći gradovi zbrisani su sa lica zemlje, o malima se ništa i ne zna. Preostali ljudi krckaju svoje poslednje dane u bunkerima i skloništima, od kojih je najveće – Moskovski metropoliten. Svi koji su se našli u njemu dok su po prestonici padale bojeve glave raketa, bili su spaseni. Površi na planete zagađena je radijacijom i nastanjena čudovištima. Život je od sada moguć jedino pod zemljom. Čovek više nije gospodar na planeti. Bića koja je iznedrila radijacija neupore­divo su prilagođenija izmenjenom svetu. Epoha čoveka je završena. To je svet za koji ne postoji sutra. U njemu nema prostora za maštanja, planove, nadu. Osećanja ustupaju mesto instinktima, od kojih je najvažniji – preživeti. Preživeti po svaku cenu. Stanice su pretvorene u gradove – države, a u tunelima vladaju tama i strah. Stanovnici Sevastopoljske – male podzemne Sparte, uz nadljudske napore preživljavaju na svojoj stanici i brane je. Ali dešava se da Sevastopoljska bude odsečena od velikog metroa, i svim njenim stanovnicima preti strašna smrt. Da bi ljudi bili spaseni, potreban je pravi heroj. Predistoriju događaja opisanih u ovoj knjizi pročitajte u romanu Metro 2033.

Metro 2034 by Dmitry Glukhovsky Summary

Rok 2034. Od pamiętnych wydarzeń, które początek i finał miały na stacji WOGN, minął niespełna rok. Czarni, ponoć śmiertelne zagrożenie dla tych nielicznych, którzy w czeluściach moskiewskiego metra przetrwali atomową apokalipsę, zniknęli na dobre, zgładzeni przez Artema i jego towarzyszy. Na drugim krańcu metra mieszkańcy Sewastopolskiej toczą walkę o przetrwanie z nowymi formami życia, wdzierającymi się do tego ostatniego schronienia ludzkości. Los stacji i jej mieszkańców zależy od dostaw amunicji, a te nagle ustają. Karawany giną bez wieści, urywa się łączność. Z zadaniem wyjaśnienia zagadki i przywrócenia dostaw wyruszają: młody Ahmed, leciwy, niespełniony kronikarz metra Homer i Hunter, który niegdyś zaginął wśród czarnych, a teraz się odnalazł, choć jego tożsamość budzi wątpliwości… Do wyprawy dołącza Sasza, córka wygnanego naczelnika Awtozawodskiej. Kim naprawdę jest Hunter? Czy odwzajemni uczucie, jakim obdarzyła go Sasza? Jaką tajemnicę skrywają mroczne tunele? I czy garstce śmiałków uda się ocalić tych nielicznych, którzy przetrwali zagładę?

Halo: New Blood by Matt Forbeck Summary

The New York Times bestselling series based on the blockbuster Xbox® games! While Spartans get all the glory, no soldier―not even the legendary Master Chief―wins a war on their own. Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck and his team of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) played a major role in saving the Earth from all-out invasion at the end of the Covenant War―acts of bravery and ingenuity that did not go unnoticed by the United Nations Space Command. Now, after many Spartans have been killed in battle and the Master Chief is listed as MIA, the UNSC decides to create a new generation of Spartans to defend humanity from threats both outside―and within. When they come to Buck with an extraordinary proposition, he is forced to make a life-altering decision. With the Covenant War finally over, is it time for him to finally retire to the sidelines for a life he could only dream about…or is he prepared to step up and become part of the military’s new blood?

Roadside Picnic by Arkady Strugatsky,Boris Strugatsky Summary

Red Schuhart is a stalker, one of those young rebels who are compelled, in spite of extreme danger, to venture illegally into the Zone to collect the mysterious artifacts that the alien visitors left scattered around. His life is dominated by the place and the thriving black market in the alien products. But when he and his friend Kirill go into the Zone together to pick up a "full empty," something goes wrong. And the news he gets from his girlfriend upon his return makes it inevitable that he'll keep going back to the Zone, again and again, until he finds the answer to all his problems. First published in 1972, "Roadside Picnic" is still widely regarded as one of the greatest science fiction novels, despite the fact that it has been out of print in the United States for almost thirty years. This authoritative new translation corrects many errors and omissions and has been supplemented with a foreword by Ursula K. Le Guin and a new afterword by Boris Strugatsky explaining the strange history of the novel's publication in Russia.

Death Punch'd by Jeremy Spencer Summary

From the cofounder of Five Finger Death Punch, a fascinating inside account of one of the most successful heavy-metal bands of the past decade, and a revealing personal journey through the wild highs and terrifying lows of the rock and roll lifestyle—a wry and rollicking tale of music, addiction, and recovery. Hailed by the New York Times as one of the most unexpectedly consistently popular bands on the rock charts, Five Finger Death Punch has become the new heavyweight champ of the metal scene. In this high-energy memoir, Jeremy Spencer, the band’s cofounder and drummer, takes us onstage and behind the scenes, on tour and into the studio to tell the band’s story and his own. Death Punch’d is a detailed in-depth account of the group’s origins and influences, as well as the infighting and tensions that, when channeled properly, result in the music fans love. It is also the hard-charging, laugh-out-loud tale of how a mischievous boy rose from small-town Indiana to rock royalty—and how he nearly destroyed it all for a good time. Told in his unique, self-deprecating voice, filled with his twisted and humorous take on living the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll dream turned nightmare, and including dozens of photos, Death Punch’d is a lively, no-holds-barred ride and an inspiring cautionary tale that offers lessons for us all.

Witajcie w Rosji by Dmitry Glukhovsky Summary

Prowokacja. Skandal. Nowa literatura. Długo oczekiwana i zaskakująca książka Dmitrija Glukhovsky’ego, autora międzynarodowego bestsellera Metro 2033. W kilkunastu błyskotliwych opowiadaniach Glukhovsky wprawną ręką kreśli alegoryczny portret swojej ojczyzny: państwa, w którym korupcja sięga szczytów władz, kraju współrządzonego przez oligarchów i podporządkowanego ich interesom. Witajcie w Rosji to iście wybuchowa mieszanka: fikcja miesza się tu z rzeczywistością, satyra i ironia sprawiają, że nie wiadomo, czy śmiać się, czy płakać, a wszystko to w ulubionej przez Glukhovsky’ego konwencji science fiction. To wyjątkowa książka, dotykająca ważnych problemów współczesnej Rosji w sposób niezwykle oryginalny, dosadny i nad wyraz trafny. Być może pierwsza od wielu lat próba uczciwego opowiedzenia o Rosji widzianej oczami nowego pokolenia.

FUTU.RE by Dmitry Glukhovsky Summary

Pokonaliśmy śmierć. I co dalej? Odkrycia naukowe poprzedniego pokolenia zapewniły mojemu nieśmiertelność i wieczną młodość. Ziemię zaludniają piękne, tryskające zdrowiem i nieznające śmierci istoty. Lecz każda utopia ma swoje cienie. Tak… Ktoś musi to robić – czuwać, by ów nowy wspaniały świat nie runął pod ciężarem przeludnienia, dbać, by jego kruchej równowagi nie zniszczyły zwierzęce instynkty człowieka. Ktoś musi troszczyć się o to, by ludzie żyli tak, jak przystoi nieśmiertelnym. Tym kimś jestem ja. FUTU.RE – oszałamiająca rozmachem wizji i ładunkiem emocji nowa powieść Dmitrija Glukhovsky’ego, autora bestsellerowego METRA 2033; to nie tylko pełnokrwista science fiction z trzymającą w napięciu fabułą, zaskakującymi zwrotami akcji i wielopłaszczyznową refleksją na temat kondycji społeczeństw Europy, Ameryki, Rosji… To literatura, która aż kipi od emocji. O ile autor METRA 2033 był jeszcze właściwie chłopcem, to FUTU.RE napisał już mężczyzna.

Koniec drogi by Dmitry Glukhovsky Summary

Nigdy niepublikowane w Polsce nowe opowiadanie autora kultowej trylogii Metro 2033 2034 2035. Opowiadanie „Koniec drogi” napisałem w 2006 roku przy wtórze pocisków Hezbollahu, kiedy byłem korespondentem rosyjskiej telewizji w izraelskim mieście Kirjat Szemona. Z tamtej perspektywy nuklearny koniec świata, na który prędzej czy później sami się skażemy, wydawał się bardzo prawdopodobny. Opowiadanie powstało szybko: odgłosy ostrzału i wybuchów bardzo mnie inspirowały. Nigdy nie planowałem rozpoczynać tym tekstem powieści ani osobnego cyklu opowiadań. Mimo to bohaterowie Końca drogi zaczęli żyć własnym życiem. Wzmiankę o nich, jeśli będziecie czytać uważnie, znajdziecie w „Metrze 2034”. Z drugiej strony sądzę, że historia chłopca i starca, wędrujących opuszczoną, niekończącą się drogą (obecnie ukończoną), zasługuje na coś więcej niż opowiadanie. I jeszcze jedno: wtedy nie miałem pojęcia o istnieniu „Drogi” Cormaca McCarthy’ego, więc nie wińcie mnie, proszę, za jakiekolwiek zbieżności. – Dmitry Glukhovsky Opowiadanie „Koniec drogi” dostępne wyłącznie jako gratis w zestawie z powieścią Surena Cormudiana „Uniwersum Metro 2033: Wędrowiec” oraz w formie e-booka.

Gender Warp by Richard P. McAdams Summary

What will life be like in the U.S. by 2034 if current trends in gender relations and gender politics continue? Women especially will be severely disadvantaged by verifiable trends in marriage, divorce, family life, and the military. Everyday life, and gender relations, in 2034 are viewed through the eyes of three couples at different stages of life. Men have been emasculated and women must carry the burden for domestic life, work life, and ever-higher taxes. The roles of the two genders have become so warped that everything from the family to the military has become dysfunctional. A better way of life in a fictional New Zealand is compared to a U.S. society that is becoming increasingly unsatisfying to individual citizens, particularly women. The book relates how President Midge Houston and a few trusted lieutenants struggle to change society, against great odds, to the benefit of both men and women.
