Alles, was Jules Verne hätte schreiben können. Alles, was H. G. Wells hätte schreiben sollen. Alles, woran Arthur Conan Doyle dachte, aber nie veröffentlichte - weil es zu phantastisch war.Im Jahr 1870 eröffnet der amerikanische Erfinder Thomas Edison den Weg zu den Sternen! Mit dem Prototyp eines Ätherschiffes erreicht er den Mars und betritt als erster Mensch den roten Sand einer fremden Welt. Er ist der erste von vielen Menschen, die staunend die Wunder des Mars und seiner Bewohner sehen werden: Die Kanäle des Roten Planeten, vor Jahrtausenden erbaut, Städte, die schon alt waren, als auf der Erde die Sumerer die ersten Lehmziegel aufeinander schichteten, und Relikte alter Technik, deren Grundlagen schon lange vergessen sind.Andere Forscher folgen Edisons Spuren und stoßen zu weiteren Planeten vor. Die nebelverhangenen Sümpfe, Meere und Dschungel der Venus bieten phantastische und bizarre Rohstoffe und Kreaturen vor allem Dinosaurier. Mit großem Aufwand und trotz aller Widrigkeiten wird seine Urbarmachung und Besiedlung vorangetrieben.Auch der Merkur lockt mit Rohstoffen und bietet urtümliches Leben. In einer Dämmerungszone zwischen einem Hitze- und Kältepol liegt für wagemutige Entdecker und Ingenieure die Basis für eine Zukunft voller Ruhm und Verdienst.Doch auch die entlegenen Ecken der Erde, das Ringen der Kolonialmächte um Macht und Einfluss, atemberaubende Erfindungen und Begegnungen mit Berühmtheiten bieten Spaß und Spannung.In Space: 1889 werden die Phantasien zum Leben erweckt, die Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, H.R. Haggard und andere geschaffen haben: Klassische Abenteuergeschichten und Science-Fiction-Abenteuer mit einem skurrilen oder nostalgischen Hauch. Sie spielen in einem Zeitalter, das vom Glauben an Technik und Fortschritt erfüllt ist, in einer Welt im Schein von Gaslichtlampen, unter der Energie der Dampfkraft und mit den sich verbreitenden Wundern von Elektrizität und Äther: Voller Erfindungsreichtum und Abenteuerlust.Space: 1889 ist ein Science-Fiction-Abenteuerspiel in einer zivilisierteren Zeit. Oft sind es Gentlemen, die in den nebligen Straßen Londons ebenso Abenteuer entdecken, wie in den staubigen Straßen Syrtis Majors auf dem Mars. Aber auch Soldaten im Auftrag ihres Landes, Erfinder beim Test ihrer neuesten Entwicklung, Historiker auf der Suche nach den Geheimnissen der alten Marsianer, wilde venusische Echsenmenschen oder stolze marsianische Steppenkriegerinnen erfüllen ihre Missionen, um Ruhm, Einfluss und Ehre zu erlagen.Kern des Rollenspielsystems sind die innovativen, schnell und leicht verständlichen Ubiquity-Regeln, die sowohl einen spannenden Verlauf von Geschichten und Abenteuern als auch kinoreife Aktionen unterstützen.

Five seminal science fiction classics are brought vividly to life in these gripping BBC Radio dramatisations, with casts including Robert Glenister, William Gaunt, Carleton Hobbs and Joanne Froggatt. Frankenstein (1994) is adapted from one of the first science fiction novels, Mary Shelley´s tale of a scientist who tries to play God and creates a monster.

The Lost World (1975) is based on a classic fantasy adventure story by Arthur Conan Doyle, whose notion of dinosaurs roaming our world was the inspiration for Jurassic Park. R.U.R. (1989) is a radio production of Karel Kapek´s thought-provoking play which introduced the word robot to the English language. Solaris (2007) dramatises Stanislaw Lem´s pioneering ghost story set in space, both a suspenseful thriller and a philosophical meditation on guilt and the human condition.

What would you do if you had discovered that the planet was about to be engulfed in a belt of poisonous ´´ether´´ from outer space? Professor Challenger invites a hand-picked crew of adventurers and scientists to his home outside London, which has been fortified with several hours´ worth of oxygen. Challenger & Co. assemble in front of a picture window to witness the end of all life on the planet. As birds plummet from the sky, trains crash, and men and women topple over before their horrified gaze, they debate everything from the possibilities of the universe to the ´´abysses that lie upon either side of our material existence´´. 1.

The Poison Belt , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 221min

´You will conceive a bunch of grapes,´ said he, ´which are covered by some infinitesimal but noxious bacillus. The gardener passes it through a disinfecting medium. It may be that he desires his grapes to be cleaner. It may be that he needs space to breed some fresh bacillus less noxious than the last. He dips it into the poison, and they are gone. Our gardener is, in my opinion, about to dip the solar system, and the human bacillus, the little mortal vibrio which twisted and wriggled upon the outer rind of the earth, will in an instant be sterilised out of existence.´ And so Professor Challenger makes plans to ensure that he and his wife and three close friends are immune from the effects of the ´disinfecting medium´, the poison belt, for as long as possible. As in The Lost World, Conan Doyle had these ideas long before our modern filmmakers, and his elucidation of scientific concepts in these adventurous and thrilling tales had enormous appeal for an audience which gained its knowledge from books. Sadly, the novel´s ultimate appeal that ´solemnity and humility´ would ´be the foundations upon which a more earnest and reverent race may build a more worthy temple´ fell on stony ground. Within a year of its publication, most of Europe was embroiled in the most horrifying conflict the planet had ever witnessed, in which poisonous gas was to play an horrendous part. 1.

Stories of Other Worlds: A Honeymoon in Space ,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For the very first time in audio, Dudley Sutton reads the pioneering science-fiction serial Stories of Other Worlds: A Honeymoon in Space, written by George Griffith and originally published over six parts in Pearson Magazine at the end of the 19th century in the UK. The adventures, here collected as one audio edition, see his newly married adventurers, exemplars of the ´Race That Rules´, exploring planets in different stages of geological and Darwinian evolution on an educational odyssey, drawing heavily on earlier cosmic voyages. Very much products of their time, the stories hold up well against greats such as HG Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle. A truly fantastic piece of Victorian science fiction. As an explorer of the real world, Griffith shattered the existing record for voyaging around the world at the behest of Sir Arthur Pearson, completing his journey in just 65 days. He also helped discover the source of the Amazon river. He died of cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 48 in 1906. In this collection, all six original short stories are brought together and read by the legendary Dudley Sutton (known to so many as Tinker from the Lovejoy TV series): Book 1: A Trip to the Moon Book 2: The World of the War God Book 3: A Glimpse of the Silent Star Book 4: The World of the Crystal Cities Book 5: In Saturn’s Realm Book 6: Homeward Bound 1.
