Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For fans of Artemis—the visionary tour de force from “one of the grand masters of science fiction” (The Wall Street Journal). Widely acknowledged as one of Robert A. Heinlein's greatest works, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress rose from the golden age of science fiction to become an undisputed classic—and a touchstone for the philosophy of personal responsibility and political freedom. A revolution on a lunar penal colony—aided by a self-aware supercomputer—provides the framework for a story of a diverse group of men and women grappling with the ever-changing definitions of humanity, technology, and free will—themes that resonate just as strongly today as they did when the novel was first published. The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress gives readers an extraordinary, thought-provoking glimpse into the mind of Robert A. Heinlein, who, even now, “shows us where the future is” (Tom Clancy).

Summary Book Review For Us, The Living :

Download or read book in PDF For Us, The Living written by Robert A. Heinlein and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2004-01-06 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From Grandmaster Robert A. Heinlein comes a long-lost first novel, written in 1939 and never before published, introducing ideas and themes that would shape his career and define the genre that is synonymous with his name. July 12, 1939 Perry Nelson is driving along the palisades when suddenly another vehicle swerves into his lane, a tire blows out, and his car careens off the road and over a bluff. The last thing he sees before his head connects with the boulders below is a girl in a green bathing suit, prancing along the shore.... When he wakes, the girl in green is a woman dressed in furs and the sun-drenched shore has transformed into snowcapped mountains. The woman, Diana, rescues Perry from the bitter cold and takes him inside her home to rest and recuperate. Later they debate the cause of the accident, for Diana is unfamiliar with the concept of a tire blowout and Perry cannot comprehend snowfall in mid-July. Then Diana shares with him a vital piece of information: The date is now January 7. The year...2086. When his shock subsides, Perry begins an exhaustive study of global evolution over the past 150 years. He learns, among other things, that a United Europe was formed and led by Edward, Duke of Windsor; former New York City mayor LaGuardia served two terms as president of the United States; the military draft was completely reconceived; banks became publicly owned and operated; and in the year 2003, two helicopters destroyed the island of Manhattan in a galvanizing act of war. This education in the ways of the modern world emboldens Perry to assimilate to life in the twenty-first century. But education brings with it inescapable truths -- the economic and legal systems, the government, and even the dynamic between men and women remain alien to Perry, the customs of the new day continually testing his mental and emotional resolve. Yet it is precisely his knowledge of a bygone era that will serve Perry best, as the man from 1939 seems destined to lead his newfound peers even further into the future than they could have imagined. A classic example of the future history that Robert Heinlein popularized during his career, For Us, The Living marks both the beginning and the end of an extraordinary arc of political, social, and literary crusading that comprises his legacy. Heinlein could not have known in 1939 how the world would change over the course of one and a half centuries, but we have our own true world history to compare with his brilliant imaginings, rendering For Us, The Living not merely a novel, but a time capsule view into our past, our present, and perhaps our future. The novel is presented here with an introduction by acclaimed science fiction writer Spider Robinson and an afterword by Professor Robert James of the Heinlein Society.

Summary Book Review A Frayed New World :

Download or read book in PDF A Frayed New World written by Damini Rana and published by Notion Press. This book was released on 2021-09-09 with total page 114 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The term ‘science fiction’ conjures an image of aliens, laser guns, and dystopia—a medley of wild, improbable scenarios and possibilities. As a literary genre, we can like it or hate it, but we can’t ignore the impact it has on our world, from influencing innovations to shaping public policy. While it may be easy to dismiss sci-fi as fantasy or imagination, it isn’t as easy to disregard the questions it raises around ethics and the societal impact of science. We can’t chase the futuristic ideas sci-fi introduces and disregard the warnings it delivers. To illustrate, tech giants today are committing billions of dollars to ‘Metaverse’, touting it as the next big thing. The idea was originally conceptualized in science fiction books—interestingly these presented a world where people are infatuated with virtual avatars, global tech corporations wield more power than governments and the quality of physical life has deteriorated. As we enter a phase where science of today is rapidly catching up with science fiction of yesterday, can we afford a que sera sera approach to our future? 'A Frayed New World' dives into some leading works of science fiction to highlight the importance of greater questioning and making deliberate, ethical choices as we design our future with science and technology.
