Short novels are movie length novels that may well be the perfect length for science fiction stories. This unabridged audio collection presents the best-of-the-best short science fiction novels published in 2011, by current and emerging masters of this form. In "The Ice Owl", by Carolyn Ives Gilman, an adolescent, female, Waster, in the iron city of Glory to God finds an enigmatic tutor who provides her with much more than academic instruction while a fundamentalist revolt is underway. In the Hugo Award winner, "The Man Who Bridged the Mist", by Kij Johnson, an architect from the capital builds a bridge over a dangerous mist that will change more than just the Empire. In "Kiss Me Twice", by Mary Robinette Kowal, a detective, with the assistance of the police department's AI - who takes on Mae West's persona - solves a murder with all the flair of an Asimov robot story. "The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary", by Ken Liu, is a moving chronicle of attempts to witness the history of Japanese atrocities against the Chinese in a World War II prison camp by traveling back in time using Bohm-Kirino particles. In "The Ants of Flanders", by Robert Reed, a teenage boy, incapable of fear, takes center stage in an alien invasion of Earth that pits alien foes against each other in a war that has no regard for mankind's existence. Finally, in "Angel of Europa", by Allen M. Steele, an arbiter aboard a space ship, exploring the moons of Jupiter, is resuscitated from a hibernation tank to investigate the deaths of two scientists that took place in a bathyscaphe underneath the global ocean of Europa. 1.

Holographic Interferometry

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This small book intends to build a bridge between the aspects of Optics and of Mechanics that are involved in the application of holographie interferometry to deformation analysis of opaque bodies. As such, it follows in some way the footsteps ofthe late Prof. H. Favre, who already in 1927 proposed to use interferometry for deformation measurements (refer to his thesis 'Sur une nouveHe methode optique de determination des tensions interieures'). Many a concept also originates from the research and lectures of Prof. W. Prager in continuum mechanies, Profs. D. C. Drucker and C. Mylonas in experimental mechanics, Prof. C. R. Steele in sheH theory and Prof. W. Lukosz in physieal optics. Further stimulation arose in dis cussions about holography with Profs. R. Dändliker, J. Der Hovanesian and H. Tiziani as weH as with Drs. B. Ineiehen and F. M. Mottier. The contribution of Drs. W. Wüthrich, P. Bohler and G. Teichmann must also be acknowledged, the latter more partieularly for rendering valuable assistance on the delieate points of tensor calculus as weH as in the drawing of the figures. FuH gratitude must also be expressed to those who made the publication of this book possible: Dr. D. MacAdam who openheartedly accepted it in his series, Dr. H. Lotsch and the collab orators of Springer-Verlag, Mr. P. Hagnauer who revised the original text and Mrs. L. Wehrli whose patience was tried in carefully typing the manuscript, whieh Mr. F. Dufour read over again.

Miscellaneous Cases of Neptune King
6,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In their first case-A Weighty Problem-they're hired by Mrs Mabel Corpetant, a rather obese lady who believes her son and daughter-in-law are trying to kill her. It doesn't take them long to realize she is paranoid and their sympathies lie with the long suffering relatives. They prove that her son and his wife are innocent of any killer motives, but they still end up saving her life under harrowing circumstances. In their second case-Daylight Robbery-Richard Steele, son of a wealthy industrialist who was disinherited because he married a poor girl, engages them to find the man who killed his pregnant wife, Geraldine, during a supposed shop robbery gone wrong. The case proves challenging as they can't find anyone who had reason to kill her. Are the police correct in their theory of robbery gone wrong? Neptune doesn't believe so. Following Sherlock Holmes' rule of when everything is eliminated whatever remains no matter how improbable must be the correct solution, he convinces Shark of an unlikely suspect and they set about proving him right. Their final solution to the crime is shocking to the extreme and although they are successful in apprehending the killer, their client becomes the ultimate victim three times over. Their third case-The Black Rose-sees them hired by Irene Thompson to prove her brother-in-law's innocence after he is arrested for murdering his wife (her sister). It doesn't take them long to prove Hall's innocence despite him having the oldest motive in the world. Barry Hall and Irene are in love. His wife was in the way and that was enough for corner cutting Inspector Sandalls. Proving Hall's innocence is only half the case. Their next step is to find the real killer. As they progress their investigation reveals that Jennifer Hall was not exactly faithful either and they are soon on the track of the real killer, the clincher being the black rose the victim had on her when she died. By capturing the real killer they also incidentally save the lives of two of his future victims. Racially Motivated is the final case in this book. Chief Inspector Waller from Scotland Yard introduces them to Mrs Byron, a Negro woman whose husband he arrested some three years previously for murder. The conclusion never sat well with him, based as it was on circumstantial evidence but he had been under pressure to close it fast. Running into the lady reminded him of the case. As he couldn't reopen the case, he brought her to K&J in the hope that they could do what he couldn't-prove her husband innocent. While the lady is distrustful of the police and white people in general, she is somewhat reassured by Milo, their man in charge of insurance investigations. He helps to bridge the gap and point out to their new client racism works both ways. While her husband may have been victimized because of his colour, her judging Neptune and Shark on their colour is exactly the same thing and he urges her to give them a chance. They soon change her mind as it doesn't take them long to find another more suitable suspect and set about proving his guilt and freeing her husband Jeremiah.

Bermondsey Boy
7,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Thirties Bermondsey was a thriving place, and it was in this bustling London borough that Thomas Hicks was born. Later, this Bermondsey boy would become known as Tommy Steele ... In this engaging memoir Tommy recalls his childhood years growing up in Bermondsey. He relives with great fondness Saturdays as a young boy, spent gazing at the colourful posters for the Palladium and days spent wandering up Tower Bridge Road to Joyce's Pie Shop for pie and mash. But he also brings to life with extraordinary vividness what it was like to live through the devastation of the Blitz. Yet it was once he joined the merchant navy and began singing and performing for his fellow seamen that his natural ability as an entertainer marked him out as a favourite. And it was while ashore in America that he became hooked on rock'n'roll and a legend was born ... From Tommy's humble beginning to life at sea and finally as a performer, Bermondsey Boy is a colourful, charming and deeply engaging memoir from a much-loved entertainer.
