Harry Harrison könyvei a rukkolán


Harry Harrison - A ​technicolor® időgép
A ​technicolor időgép a következetesen végigvitt sci-fi ötlet remek példája. A hollywoodi Climactic filmstúdiót csőd fenyegeti. Péntek este van, hétfő reggel megjelennek a bank csődszakemberei. Addigra el kell készülnie a Viking Kolumbusz című monstre szuperprodukciónak, még akkor is, ha az ónorvég sagákat esetleg újra kell értelmezni, és a kritikusok is némi joggal fanyalognak a film földhözragadt realizmusa láttán...

BILL ​- the perfect Starship Trooper: big, brawny, and brainwashed.

Éden ​párhuzamos valóságában javában folyik a harc a Földért két civilizáció között, melyek egyaránt maguknak akarják a hatalmat. A yilané dinoszauruszai nemcsak hogy nem haltak ki, de egy értelmes fajuk a biotechnológia tudományának segítségével meghódította a bolygó nagy részét. Riválisaik, az emberek nem rendelkeznek olyan fejlett technikával, mint ők, de szívósságban méltó versenytársak, és most még a természet is az ő oldalukra állt: jégkorszak közeledik, amit talán csak a melegvérűek élhetnek túl. A harc minden eddiginél kiélezettebb lesz, és két ellenfél, az ember Kerrick, valamint a yilané Vainté számára egyenesen személyes üggyé válik.

Harry Harrison - David Bischoff - On ​the Planet of Ten Thousand Bars
BARWORLD! ​For all the years that BILL had served in the Troopers, with all the hard beds, hard heads and no creds, any booze on offer was probably embalming fluid, or worse. BARWORLD! An assignment there promised bubbly, brandy and beer galore - enough to give BILL's right arms (both of them) at last some idea of just what they were for. But that was before Uncle Nancy's Cross-Dressing Emporium. And the Time/Space Resonation Nexus. And the Hippy from Hell. They were enough to completely alter a person's perceptions of reality. And, like, totally bum him out.

Harry Harrison - Return ​to Eden
