Foc In Adanc

Editura: Nemira

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Premiul Hugo, 1993 Cea mai originala idee din romanul Foc în Adanc o reprezinta inversiunea unui vechi cliseu al SF-ului, care postula ca sistemele solare mai vechi si mai apropiate – unele dintre ele – de centrul galaxiei ar fi fost primele care au adapostit civilizatii atat de evoluate, incat puteau calatori printre stele. Dimpotriva, explica Vinge, densitatea materiei din centrul galaxiei actioneaza ca un incetinitor universal – al luminii, al navelor spatiale si chiar al gandului. Din aceasta cauza, inalta tehnologie nu se poate dezvolta decat la marginea galaxiei, periferia devenind adevaratul “centru” de schimburi economice si culturale, locul de trecere – pe scurt, leaganul civilizatiei. Cu acest roman, Vernor Vinge ne daruieste cel mai fabulos space opera al deceniului.

Adancurile Cerului

Editura: Nemira

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Continuarea aventurii incepute cu Foc in adanc. Castigator al premiilor Hugo, Campbell Memorial, Prometheus si Kurd Lasswitz „Intoarcerea in universul romanului Foc in adanc… insa cu 30.000 de ani mai devreme. Povestea are aceeasi vastitate epica, in cea mai mareata traditie SF.” David Langford „Conflict politic, lupta pentru putere, manipulare, societati aflate in razboi, tehnologii naucitoare, calatorii in adancurile cosmosului si o civilizatie de paianjeni… ce v-ati putea dori mai mult? O intriga epopeica de anvergura seriei Dune.” SFRevu „Vinge ofera o multime de incantari pentru cititorii de hard SF, printre care scara galactica si stiinta ezoterica, dar relatiile dintre oameni si paianjeni sunt cele care il confisca pe cititor. Vinge exploreaza natura obsesiei, reluand tema iar si iar in aceasta «fuga» literara.” - Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine

The Peace War

Editura: Tor Books

Anul aparitiei: 2003

The Peace War is quintessential hard-science adventure. The Peace Authority conquered the world with a weapon that never should have been a weapon--the "bobble," a spherical force-field impenetrable by any force known to mankind. Encasing governmental installations and military bases in bobbles, the Authority becomes virtually omnipotent. But they've never caught Paul Hoehler, the maverick who invented the technology, and who has been working quietly for decades to develop a way to defeat the Authority. With the help of an underground network of determined, independent scientists and a teenager who may be the apprentice genius he's needed for so long, he will shake the world, in the fast-paced hard-science thriller that garnered Vinge the first of his four Hugo nominations for best novel.

Editura: Tor Books

Anul aparitiei: 2004

Multiple Hugo Award winner Vernor Vinge takes readers on a fifty-million-year trip to a future where humanity's fate will be decided in a dangerous game of high-tech survival. In this taut thriller, a Hugo finalist for Best Novel, nobody knows why there are only three hundred humans left alive on the Earth fifty million years from now. Opinion is fiercely divided on whether to settle in and plant the seed of mankind anew, or to continue using high-energy stasis fields, or "bobbles," in venturing into the future. When somebody is murdered, it's obvious someone has a secret he or she is willing to kill to preserve.The murder intensifies the rift between the two factions, threatening the survival of the human race. It's up to 21st century detective Wil Brierson, the only cop left in the world, to find the culprit, a diabolical fiend whose lust for power could cause the utter extinction of man. Filled with excitement and adventure, Vinge's tense SF puzzler will satisfy readers with its sense of wonder and engaging characters, one of whom is a murderer with a unique modus operandi.

Multiple Hugo Award winner Vernor Vinge's first full-length novel As a mud-spattered youngster, Tatja quickly realized she was different from the stone-age primitives with whom she grew up. Her insatiable curiosity and thirst for knowledge could not be quenched among them; she had to explore and learn more about the strange world she lived on. She finds the bastion of all culture, arts, entertainment and history for the entire planet, the seven-hundred-year-old science fiction magazine Fantasie, which is produced entirely aboard a gargantuan floating vessel the size of a small city. But despite the printing presses, sail-powered vessels, and mind-expanding technology, Tatja is still dissatisfied. Rising through the ranks, she finds that the people on the enormous barge are just as unintelligent as the primitives she grew up with. But others have come to the planet who not only challenge her intelligence, but offer her a tantalizing opportunity to uncover answers to mysteries that have long plagued her. But with opportunity comes risk. And if she acts unwisely, she could bring doom to the only world she knows.

Fire Upon the Deep

Editura: Tor Books

Anul aparitiei: 2010

A Fire Upon the Deep is the big, breakout book that fulfills the promise of Vinge's career to date: a gripping tale of galactic war told on a cosmic scale. Thousands of years hence, many races inhabit a universe where a mind's potential is determined by its location in space, from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures and technology can function. Nobody knows what strange force partitioned space into these "regions of thought," but when the warring Straumli realm use an ancient Transcendent artifact as a weapon, they unwittingly unleash an awesome power that destroys thousands of worlds and enslaves all natural and artificial intelligence. Fleeing the threat, a family of scientists, including two children, are taken captive by the Tines, an alien race with a harsh medieval culture, and used as pawns in a ruthless power struggle. A rescue mission, not entirely composed of humans, must rescue the children-and a secret that may save the rest of interstellar civilization. A Fire Upon The Deep is the winner of the 1993 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
