Yet lurking below the surface is a deadly scenario. Only one person knows how the giants got there ... and not even Sturdley can guress what they really want, or the danger they pose to Earth. “If you love comics, you will fall for this wish-it-were-true-story!” —Harry Harrison “A fantastic combination of adventure and suspense...as if Douglas Adams wrote a novel about comics.” —Mel Gilden
Description : DIV Byron Rogers' latest collection of travel pieces follows the winning formula of his first book for Aurum, "An Audience with an Elephant": in search of - and finding - a remarkable array of quirky, whimsical and singular individuals. But as well as such characters as the pensioner on a Saga holiday who decided to swim across the Amazon, this book sees for the first time Rogers meeting a number of undeniably famous people: Hollywood stars, legends of children's radio serials he had idolised in childhood - even rock stars like Mick Jagger. But, as one might expect, Rogers' encounters with a celebrity have their own unexpected outcomes. Burt Lancaster rants to him about trans sexuality. Rita Hayworth is most worried about her neighbour's TV aerial. A retired star of the silent screen turns out to live in Henley-on-Thames. Rogers' last book for Aurum, "The Bank Manager and the Holy Grail" (1 85410 949 9) received excellent coverage and was reprinted twice; and his biography of J.L. Carr, "The Last Englishman" reprinted four times and was hailed by Simon Jenkins as "a miniature masterpiece". /div
Description : The last human in the universe is on the run from a godlike intelligence in this rip-roaring debut. “A good old-fashioned space opera in a thoroughly fresh package . . . stuffed with aliens, adventure, mystery, and big ideas.”—Andy Weir, author of The Martian Most days, Sarya doesn’t feel like the most terrifying creature in the galaxy. Most days, she’s got other things on her mind. Like hiding her identity among the hundreds of alien species roaming the corridors of Watertower Station. Or making sure her adoptive mother doesn’t casually eviscerate one of their neighbors. Again. And most days, she can almost accept that she’ll never know the truth—that she’ll never know why humanity was deemed too dangerous to exist. Or whether she really is—impossibly—the lone survivor of a species destroyed a millennium ago. That is, until an encounter with a bounty hunter and a miles-long kinetic projectile leaves her life and her perspective shattered. Thrown into the universe at the helm of a stolen ship—with the dubious assistance of a rebellious spacesuit, an android death enthusiast on his sixtieth lifetime, and a ball of fluff with an IQ in the thousands—Sarya begins to uncover an impossible truth. What if humanity’s death and her own existence are simply two moves in a demented cosmic game, one played out by vast alien intellects? Stranger still, what if these mad gods are offering Sarya a seat at their table—and a second chance for humanity? The Last Human is a sneakily brilliant, gleefully oddball space-opera debut—a masterful play on perspective, intelligence, and free will, wrapped in a rollicking journey through a strange and crowded galaxy.
