Bill is a dedicated young lawyer working in New York. He leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream to become a minister in rural Wyoming. Jenny, his fashion stylist wife, leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever. Fast forward thirty-eight years. Robert is a hard-working independent book publisher in Manhattan, looking for one big hit novel to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century, caring for her widowed father and three young brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her. When it falls into Robert’s hands, he falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met. In the hands of bestselling author Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. If it is true that real love lasts forever and lovers cannot lose each other, then Until the End of Time will not only comfort and fascinate us, as destiny does her dance, but it will give us hope as well. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope...and love that never dies.

Die unmögliche Stadt Es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit - zumindest behauptet das eine skurrile Kleinanzeige in einer Seattler Zeitung, die auch nur von skurrilen Menschen gelesen wird. Doch als drei dieser Leser auf die Anzeige antworten, beginnt eines der fantastischsten Abenteuer, das je erzählt wurde. Denn es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit. Eine Stadt, deren Technologie so weit fortgeschritten ist, dass man sie von Magie kaum mehr unterscheiden kann. Eine Stadt, in die sich die letzten Lebewesen eines sterbenden Universums geflüchtet haben. Eine Stadt, die nun Kontakt mit der Gegenwart aufnimmt – um zu retten, was wir als »Mensch« bezeichnen.

I like to examine the dark side of life through my writing. Whether it is through my novels or my poetry I find I prefer the walk along the dark side of the road over the heart lifting sunnier side. This Anthology is a walk along that road although it does include lighter moments and the occasional funny aside. Apart from the poetry in this Anthology you will also find views of life and in particular my antipathy towards organised religion alongside a couple of very short children's stories. So please read my Anthology. It will make you smile I hope as well as make you cry. I have also written and published one novel so far entitled LOVE SEX AND TIME TRAVEL. I always point out that it is not a science fiction novel as such. There are no time machines, aliens or spaceships in it but it is rather a bitter sweet love story again examining the darker side of love and life.

Julian Barnes’ meisterhafter Roman über Dmitri Schostakowitsch Im Mai 1937 wartet ein Mann jede Nacht neben dem Fahrstuhl seiner Leningrader Wohnung darauf, dass Stalins Schergen kommen und ihn abholen. Der Mann ist der Komponist Schostakowitsch, und er wartet am Lift, um seiner Familie den Anblick seiner Verhaftung zu ersparen. Die Gunst der Mächtigen zu erlangen, hat zwei Seiten: Stalin, der sich plötzlich für seine Musik zu interessieren scheint, verlässt noch in der Pause die Aufführung seiner Oper »Lady Macbeth von Mzensk«. Fortan ist Schostakowitsch ein zum Abschuss freigegebener Mann. Durch Glück entgeht er der Säuberung, doch was bedeutet es für einen Künstler, keine Entscheidung frei treffen zu können? In welchem Verhältnis stehen Kunst und Unterdrückung, Diktatur und Kreativität zueinander, und ist es verwerflich, wenn man sich der Macht beugt, um künstlerisch arbeiten zu können? Im neuen Roman von Julian Barnes wird das von Repressionen geprägte Leben von Schostakowitsch in meisterhafter Knappheit dargestellt – ein großartiger Künstlerroman, der die Frage der Integrität stellt und traurige Aktualität genießt.

Giller Prize–winning author Johanna Skibsrud spins a masterful tale about memory and war. Inspired by and structured around the chamber piece of the same title by the French composer Olivier Messiaen, Quartet for the End of Time is a mesmerizing story of four lives irrevocably linked in a single act of betrayal. The novel takes us on an unforgettable journey beginning during the 1930s Bonus Army riots, when World War I veteran Arthur Sinclair is falsely accused of conspiracy and then disappears. His absence will haunt his son, Douglas, as well as Alden and Sutton Kelly, the children of a powerful U.S. congressman, as they experience—each in different ways—the dynamic political social changes that took place leading up to and during World War II. From the New Deal projects through which Douglas, newly fatherless, makes his living to Sutton’s work as a journalist, to Alden’s life as a code breaker and a spy, each character is haunted by the past and is searching for love, hope, and redemption in a world torn apart by chaos and war. Through the lives of these characters, as well as those of their lovers, friends, and enemies, the novel transports us from the Siberian Expedition of World War I to the underground world of a Soviet spy in the 1920s and 1930s, to the occultist circle of P. D. Ouspensky and London during the Blitz, to the German prison camp where Messiaen originally composed and performed his famous Quartet for the End of Time. At every turn, this rich and ambitious novel tells some of the less well-known stories of twentieth-century history with epic scope and astonishing power, revealing at every turn the ways in which history and memory tend to follow us, and in which absence has a palpable presence.

Multiple Hugo and Nebula award-winning author, Greg Bear is one of science fiction’s most accomplished writers. Bold scientific speculation, riveting plots, and a fierce humanism reflected in characters who dare to dream of better worlds distinguish his work. Now Bear has written a mind-bendingly epic novel that may well be his masterpiece. Do you dream of a city at the end of time? In a time like the present, in a world that may or may not be our own, three young people–Ginny, Jack, and Daniel–dream of a doomed, decadent city of the distant future: the Kalpa. Ginny’s and Jack’s dreams overtake them without warning, leaving their bodies behind while carrying their consciousnesses forward, into the minds of two inhabitants of the Kalpa–a would-be warrior, Jebrassy, and an inquisitive explorer, Tiadba–who have been genetically retro-engineered to possess qualities of ancient humanity. As for Daniel: He dreams of an empty darkness–all that his future holds. But more than dreams link Ginny, Jack, and Daniel. They are fate-shifters, born with the ability to skip like stones across the surface of the fifth dimension, inhabiting alternate versions of themselves. And each guards an object whose origin and purpose are unknown: gnarled, stony artifacts called sum-runners that persist unchanged through all versions of time. Hunted by others with similar powers who seek the sum-runners on behalf of a terrifying, goddess-like entity known as the Chalk Princess, Ginny, Jack, and Daniel are drawn, despite themselves, into an all but hopeless mission to rescue the future–and complete the greatest achievement in human history.
