A felfedező


Néhány fős expedíció indul a mélyűrbe azzal a céllal, hogy az emberiség megismerje a Naprendszer legtávolabbi pontjait. A legénység tagja Cormac Easton is, akit újságíróként azzal a feladattal bíztak meg, hogy egy blogon dokumentálja az utazás eseményeit. Amikor azonban az űrutazók felébrednek a sztázisból, holtan találják a kapitányukat, és a Földi Irányítástól szigorú utasítást kapnak: bármi történjék is, a küldetést végig kell csinálniuk. A holttestek száma fokozatosan nőni kezd, Cormac pedig magára marad, és egyre elkeseredettebben küzd azért, hogy elkerülje, ami rá vár. James Smythe klausztrofób sci-fije igazi különlegesség a műfaj kedvelőinek.

Organon


Sci-fi z budoucnosti bližší, než by se mohlo zdát. Rok 1997. Sedmnáctiletá Laura Bowová vynalezla primitivní umělou inteligenci — Organon, který má zpočátku jen plnit roli vrby pro její pubertální frustrace a nahrazovat jí nejlepší kamarádku. Ale jak Laura stárne, Organon stárne spolu s ní a zná ji líp, než zná ona sebe samu. Svět se mění k nepoznání a technologie ovládá lidské životy. Nadnárodní korporace vyvíjejí umělou inteligenci, která Organonu konkuruje, ovšem bez bezpečnostních pojistek a morálky. Laura se musí rozhodnout, jestli chce Organon světu představit. Je si vědoma toho, že pokud by padl do špatných rukou, mohly by jeho schopnosti být zneužity. Ale co když je Organon jediná věc, která dokáže lidstvo zachránit, dřív než samo na sobě napáchá nevratné škody? Organon je silný příběh o lásce, ztrátě a naději. Děsivý a dojemný pohled na to, kým jsme a kým bychom mohli být, kdybychom sami chtěli.

I Still Dream


"A strikingly intelligent book about intelligence itself" - Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent 1997. 17-year-old Laura Bow has invented a rudimentary artificial intelligence, and named it Organon. At first it's intended to be a sounding-board for her teenage frustrations, a surrogate best friend; but as she grows older, Organon grows with her. As the world becomes a very different place, technology changes the way we live, love and die; massive corporations develop rival intelligences to Laura's, ones without safety barriers or morals; and Laura is forced to decide whether to share her creation with the world. If it falls into the wrong hands, she knows, its power could be abused. But what if Organon is the only thing that can stop humanity from hurting itself irreparably? I STILL DREAM is a powerful tale of love, loss and hope; a frightening, heartbreakingly human look at who we are now - and who we can be, if we only allow ourselves.
