GET YOUR SHIP TOGETHER. "If you like Andy Weir's The Martian and Hugh Howey's Wool, you will love Kevin Tumlinson's Citadel." AN ANCIENT ENEMY A THREAT OF WAR AN UNEXPECTED HOPE ALL ON THE WRONG FREAKING PLANET It’s been over a century since the terrorist attack that nearly ended any chance for humanity to travel to the stars. Then there was the fifty years of war with the plant-like Esool, the rise of a powerful, cult-like anti-colonization group, and the increasing tensions between the wealthy upper class and the lower working class. But we’re getting better. Except for the part where the first joint colony effort between humans and the Esool results in the colony ship Citadel crashing on the wrong planet, with no hope of returning home. Now the struggling colony itself led by a former alien enemy, and hidden among them is both the saboteur and the most notorious terrorist history has ever known. Survival will mean pulling together and doing the impossible a few dozen times. Unless, of course, a brand new alien species puts a stop to the whole thing. And the colonists thought it was a rough ride coming down. THE COMPLETE SERIES

The year is 2076, and mankind has perfected VR technology, using the Chip, an implant that interfaces directly with the human brain, using it like an organic computer. Age of Anarchy Online (AAO) is the newest game released by Icestorm, makers of the legendary World of Destiny (WoD). Unlike VR games before it, AAO promises a 110% 'Better Than Life' realism experience, and to showcase this, Icestorm announces that AAO will have no 'Out of Character' rules, save for actions like hacking or exploiting system errors. Players can do anything to NPCs and even other players, and there will be no consequences save what one may suffer in game. "Do what thou wilt, but it may be done to you in turn." Mike Greene, better known in WoD as Torgan, a max level Paladin and leader of the Lords of Light, one of the top 'light side' guilds in WoD, now sets off on a new adventure in AAO. -------------------- Author's Note: If you haven't guessed, there's going to be all kinds of nastiness in this story. Violence, language, racism, sexism, sex, gore, vore, and more! If you have triggers of any kind, this is your warning. If you're looking for a nice, heartwarming tale like Sword Art Online, keep looking. There will be 'good guys' as well, but this is a story where Might IS Right. However, if you've read Watchmen and Wanted, and like what you read (READ, not the movies!), then you just may find this story in your strike zone. And for f*ck's sake, this is just a story! Don't take this as an endorsement of any of the actions in this story. **This is an omnibus edition containing the first four volumes of Rules-Free VRMMO Life.**

From the vaults of The SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal introduction to the fantastic work of one of the Golden Age's most influential writers, Henry Kuttner.

This omnibus contains two of his major novels, which have been out of print for many years - FURY and MUTANT - and collection THE BEST OF HENRY KUTTNER.

Der Auftakt zur Licanius-Saga - das neue magische Epos in der Tradition der großen Fantasy-Bestseller von Robert Jordan und Raymond Feist! In Feuer und Blut endete vor 20 Jahren die Herrschaft der Auguren, mächtige Magier mit seherischen Fähigkeiten. Jene, die ihnen dienten – die Begabten – wurden nur verschont, weil sie sich dem rigiden neuen Gesetz unterworfen haben, das ihre Macht beschränkt. Der junge Begabte Davian und seine Freunde wachsen in einer Welt auf, die sie verachtet und strengstens überwacht. Doch als Davian herausfindet, dass er über die bei Todesstrafe verbotene Magie der Seher verfügt, setzt er eine Kette von Ereignissen in Gang, die alles für immer verändern werden. Denn im Norden regt sich ein Feind, den man zu lange besiegt glaubte ... James Islingtons Fantasy-Saga nahm zunächst Australien im Sturm ein; nun schickt sich "Das Erbe der Seher" an, die Welt zu erobern!

The Book of the New Sun is unanimously acclaimed as Gene Wolfe's most remarkable work, hailed as "a masterpiece of science fantasy comparable in importance to the major works of Tolkien and Lewis" by Publishers Weekly, and "one of the most ambitious works of speculative fiction in the twentieth century" by The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Sword & Citadel brings together the final two books of the tetralogy in one volume: The Sword of the Lictor is the third volume in Wolfe's remarkable epic, chronicling the odyssey of the wandering pilgrim called Severian, driven by a powerful and unfathomable destiny, as he carries out a dark mission far from his home. The Citadel of the Autarch brings The Book of the New Sun to its harrowing conclusion, as Severian clashes in a final reckoning with the dread Autarch, fulfilling an ancient prophecy that will forever alter the realm known as Urth. "Brilliant . . . terrific . . . a fantasy so epic it beggars the mind. An extraordinary work of art!"-Philadelphia Inquirer "The Book of the New Sun establishes [Wolfe's] preeminence, pure and simple. . . . The Book of the New Sun contains elements of Spenserian allegory, Swiftian satire, Dickensian social consciousness and Wagnerian mythology. Wolfe creates a truly alien social order that the reader comes to experience from within . . . once into it, there is no stopping."--The New York Times Book Review At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
