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. Felülkerekedhet-e bármelyikük a másikon, vagy mindkét fajból csupán megkövült csontok maradnak meg az utókor számára? Az SF Nagymestere csak Frank Herbert Dűnéjéhez mérhető Éden-trilógiájának második kötetében bolygónk egy elképzelt arcát mutatja meg olyan hitelesen és olyan aprólékos kidolgozottsággal, hogy el sem hinnénk, valójában nem így alakult a történelem. „Nagy regény, minden értelemben. A mesterségbeli tudás diadala.” – Washington Post Book World

Harry Harrison - David Bischoff - On ​the Planet of Tasteless Pleasure

Bill is in the hospital, vainly hoping for a real foot to replace the satyr's foot he's been lumbered with. Not that he has anything against satyrs - at least not until one grabs him by the foot and pulls him under the ocean into a world of unspeakable and endless pleasures! Roaming this dimension of primordial desires, Bill faces dragons and gunslingers for the sake of true love - and a really good beer!

Harry Harrison - The ​Technicolor Time Machine
Why ​pay for costumes, scenery, props or actors when the most brilliant drama of all time is unfolding before your very eyes, in vivid color - in 1050 A.D.?

Harry Harrison - Vissza ​az Édenbe
Ha ​65 millió évvel ezelőtt egy világméretű kataklizma ki nem irtja a Földön a dinoszauruszok többségét, ma ők lehetnének a bolygó uralkodó életformái. Harry Harrison Éden-trilógiája ebből az izgalmas feltételezésből indul ki, és megpróbálja megtalálni az emberek helyét a megváltozott körülmények között. Kerrick és törzse sikerrel elmenekült az ellenséges hüllőcivilizáció, a jilanèk karmai közül, és egy csendes kis szigeten bújt meg, ahol ismét viszonylagos békében élheti életét. Persze az embereknek tudomásul kell venniük, hogy nemcsak a rivális értelmes faj vadászik rájuk, hanem a környező erdők nagyragadozói is, és hiába loptak fejlett fegyvereket, azokkal sem tarthatnak ki sokáig. És azt még csak nem is sejtik, hogy a jilanèk bosszúszomjas tudósai javában kutatnak egy olyan módszer után, amellyel mindörökre megszabadulhatnak a világukat fertőző kártékony emlősszaporulattól. Az SF kétszeres nagymestere sosem áldozta fel a vad kalandokat a mély gondolatok oltárán, igyekezett úgy egyensúlyozni, hogy olvasói minden téren megkapják, ami nekik jár. Ez a nagyszabású regénye sem okoz csalódást. Keressék a trilógia előző részeit is, az _Édentől nyugatra_ és a _Fagyos Éden_ című köteteket! "Nagy regény, minden értelemben. Szerzőjének széles körű tudását és írói tapasztalatát tükrözi." - _Washington Post Book World_

Harry Harrison - Two ​Tales And Eight Tomorrows
Harry ​Harrison's startling visions of the future reveal not only his abilities as a storyteller but also his deep concern for Man and his place in the cosmos. The Streets of Ashkelon is a poignant and terrifying look at an alien race which believes everything it is told - and at the horrific consequences of what happens when it hears the Christian message. I Always Do What Teddy Says is a frightening glimpse at the possibility of mass mind control from childhood. But why is one person spared? These two stories and eight equally tantalizing others make up this brilliant anthology..

Harry Harrison - Return ​to Eden
The ​rousing conclusion of an epic trilogy! In WEST OF EDEN and WINTER IN EDEN, master novelist Harry Harrison broke new ground with his most ambitious project ever.

Now, in RETURN TO EDEN, Harrison brings the epic trilogy to a stunning conclusion. After Kerrick rescues his people from the warlike Yilane, they find a safe haven on an island and there begin to rebuild their shattered lives. But with fierce predators stalking the forests, how long can these unarmed human outeasts hope to survive? And, of course, Kerrick cannot forget Vainte, his implacable Yilane enemy. She's been cast out from her kind, under sentence of death, but how long will her banishment last? For her strange attraction to Kerrick has turned into a halred even more powerful than her instinets - an obsession that compels her to hunt down Kerrick and kill him.

Harry Harrison - Halálvilág ​3.
A ​bolygó neve: Boldogság. Ez a név olyan, akár valami rossz tréfa, hiszen lakóinak minden cselekedetét évezredek óta a pusztítás és a gyilkolás vezérli. Jason mindezzel tisztában volt, ám azt is tudta, hogy a bolygójukon katasztrfa fenyegeti őket. A Boldogság az egyetlen hely a galaxisban, ahol letelepedhetnek és új életet kezdhetnek.

His mission was to save Dis, but it looked as though he was going to preside over its annihilation.

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...

Harry Harrison - A ​Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah!
A ​Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah! (aka Tunnel Through the Deeps) is an alternate history. Harrison began by positing two changes which would've allowed this changed history to exist. In this story, set in an alternate 1973, Washington lost the Battle of Lexington & was executed as a traitor. America remains a British colony dreaming of independence. The other change is that Columbus didn't discover the Americas & the cultures of South America weren't destroyed. Thus Harrison brings into being a British Empire which has survived into the 20th century still influenced by its Victorian creators. But this ideal is threatened by increasing unemployment & the threat of economic decline. The empire needs something to boost its fortunes. So is born an engineering project to link Britain with its colony: a tunnel beneath the sea. Employment will increase & manufacturing will prosper. The hero of the story is Captain Augustine Washington, engineer & descendent of the traitor. As well as wishing to see the tunnel's success, he wants to see his homeland achieve independence, or at least the dominion status of Canada & Australia. He's also in love with Iris, daughter of the genius behind the project, Sir Isambard Brassey-Brunel, who despises the upstart colonial engineer. A Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah! is a curiously transatlantic book. The hero is an American, seeking independence for his country, but the British here are benign imperialists.

Harry Harrison - Star ​Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers
The ​wild, galaxy-hopping adventures of brash young scientists Jerry Courtenay and Chuck van Chider are at the core of this classic space opera.

The boyish plan backfires, however, and the boys find themselves, along with their crush Sally and the seemingly loveable school caretaker, Old John, hurtling through the solar system towards Titan—an icy moon of Saturn inhabited by hideous ice creatures. Titan and the 20th century are only square one as the foursome becomes embroiled in a vast, intergalactic, century-jumping battle.
