Aliens have been a major theme in science fiction literature from the very beginnings of the genre...though they seem to have morphed over the decades from humanoids (six-limbed and blue though they might be!) to the utterly incomprehensible to noncorporeal energy beings -- and everything in between! This collection focuses on aliens as depicted in many different forms over many different decades. While in no way comprehensive -- I'm not sure a "definitive" book of alien stories could ever be assembled -- we think this one is, at the very least, a lot of fun.

H. P. Lovecraft: 'Welcher Schriftsteller kann schon mit Howard mithalten, wenn es um pure, lebendige Angst geht?' Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) gilt mit seinen Geschichten um Helden wie Conan von Cimmerien, Red Sonja, Bran Mak Morn, Solomon Kane und Kull von Atlantis als der Begründer der modernen 'Schwert und Magie'-Fantasy. Er war ein Schriftsteller von gewaltiger visionärer und literarischer Kraft, der leider sehr jung starb. Bis heute finden seine fantastisch-historischen Erzählungen eine enorme Fangemeinde. Festa veröffentlicht erstmals auf Deutsch seine unheimlichen Geschichten (5 Bände), darunter einige die zu H. P. Lovecrafts 'Cthulhu-Mythos' gezählt werden können. Das Bonusmaterial bilden Briefe zwischen H. P. Lovecraft und Robert E. Howard sowie Essays zu Leben und Werk des Texaners. Stephen King: 'In Howards besten Erzählungen steckt eine so unglaubliche Energie, dass geradezu Funken sprühen!' Robert Bloch: 'Hinter Howards Erzählungen lauert eine dunkle Poetik, und die zeitlose Wahrheit der Träume.' Horrorgeschichten Band 5 Inhalt: Die Kinder der Nacht Schwarzes Canaan Der Messingpfau Die Götter von Bal-Sagoth Der schwarze Stein Das Haus zwischen den Eichen mit August Derleth »For the Love of Barbara Allen« Der Schatz der Tartaren Die Bewohner der Schwarzen Küste Herr der Toten Garten der Furcht Namen im schwarzen Buch Im Wald von Villefère Der Graue Gott vergeht ekz: 'Versetzte Howard in seiner Fantasy den Leser in eine Scheinwelt voller starker Männer, schöner Frauen und zwielichtiger Magier, so taucht sein Horror mit diversen Ich-Erzählern in die albtraumhafte Welt dunkler Bestien und übernatürlicher Wesen, die die Erde heimsuchen und vernichten wollen - Cthulhu lässt grüßen. Für Horror-Fans ein unverzichtbarer Klassiker.'

Wie für alle Wissenschaftsgebiete gilt auch für die Botanik, dass ein vertieftes Verständnis des gegenwärtigen Standes dieser Disziplin nur durch die Kenntnis ihrer historischen Entwicklung möglich ist. Die zweite, bearbeitete Auflage der »Geschichte der Botanik« beschreibt in über 20 Kapiteln den Werdegang der Botanik von Aristoteles über Linné bis ans Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts. Der Schwerpunkt der Darstellung liegt dabei in der biographischen Würdigung überragender Forscher dieses Faches. Der Hauptteil des Werkes wird durch einen umfangreichen Anmerkungsteil ergänzt, der genaue Quellenangaben, bibliographisch vollständige Zitate der Originalwerke und Hinweise auf Biographien enthält. Zahlreiche Abbildungen illustrieren die Übersicht in anschaulicher Weise.

Auf dem altenglischen Schloss Garre Castle, gelegen in einem ländlichen Winkel der Grafschaft Berkshire, spukt es: Ganz in Grün gewandet schleicht des Nachts ein geheimnisvoller Bogenschütze durch die lichten Hallen. Ist es wirklich der Geist des Wilderers, der hier im Mittelalter auf Geheiß des Burgherrn grausam hingerichtet wurde? Über diesen Spuk kann der neue Besitzer des Schlosses, Abel Bellamy – ein amerikanischer Geschäftsmann, der mit allen Wassern gewaschen ist - nur lachen, denn dieser glaubt nicht an Gespenster, aber an den Einfallsreichtum seiner rachsüchtigen Mitmenschen... Der grüne Bogenschütze, entstanden im Jahre 1923, ist einer der bekanntesten Kriminalromane von Edgar Wallace – und schon ab der ersten Seite gelingt es dem Meister der britischen Kriminal-Literatur, den Leser in ein zeitlos konstruiertes Labyrinth aus Rätseln, Verbrechen und Geheimnissen hineinzuziehen.
