scriitorul care ne-a delectat cu volumul Vremea Renuntarii aparut la editura Bastion in care a adunat cele mai valoroase povestiti ale sale.Nu ezit in a va aduce aminte de „Noptile noastre la tropice’, „Noapte buna ,Tereza” , „Inceput de anotimp ploios la Ezary” si bineinteles „Vremea Renuntarii” povesti scrise atit de bine si care iti provoaca acel fior numit „sense of wonder” la citirea lor.

In asteptarea celorlalte povestiri si de ce nu si a unui roman ii uram din inima si suflet LA MULTI ANI MARIAN!,SPOR IN TOATE SI MULTA SANATATE! Fie ca zeul inspiratiei sa te vegheze si sa-ti dea multa putere de munca ca prozele tale sa ne incinte si delecteze inima.Distractie maxima si sa inchinam un pahar de vin in sanatatea ta!

I’m back!

Posted: Aprilie 21, 2010 by fansf in Uncategorized

Iata ca dupa o perioada in care am avut multe probleme medicala si toate pornind de la o pirdalnica de masea pot spune ca sunt back in biznis! Astazi am reusit dupa citeva saptamini de dureri sa elimin cauza adica maseaua, fi-r-ar ea afurisita sa fie! si pot spune ca ma simt  mai bine stiind ca nu voi mai avea probleme cu maseaua.Din cauza unei masele de Paste nu am putut savura bucatele traditionale si nici nu am putut sa beau decit suc ,in schimb m-am indopat cu antibiotice cit sa doboare un regiment de soldati,de abia dupa radiografii am descoperit ca aveam si o sinuzita rebela  care a necesitat  internarea in spital.Dupa doua punctii, sa stiti ca nu sunt chiar nasoale dar dupa este belea,am inceput in sfirsit sa ma simt ca un vultur eliberat din cusca si care a gasit tariile cerule iar.Vreau sa remarc cu aceasta ocazie si calitatea serviciilor medicale precum si profesionalismul medicilor,asistentelor si infirmierelor,traind in Romania am avut o conceptie gresita si eronat indusa de presa despre actul medical cu ocazia asta am descoperit ca lucrurile s-au schimbat enorm de mult fata de ultima data cind am fost in spital si asta acum  18 ani,serviciile medicale sunt de calitate si bune.

Pot spune ca toata aceasta aventura a avut si partile ei bune,prin amabilitatea domnului Costel Rangu am primit o gramada de carti de la Nemira pe care le-am citit cu fervoare si care au fost extrem de frumoase si bune.Avind spitalul aproape de mine mi-am permis si niste escapade pina acasa de cite o jumatate de ora numai si numai sa ma conectez la ultimele aparitii de la Nemira,Leda si Millennium Press si am avut placerea sa vad noua Odisee Spatiala intr-un format hardcover pe care citiva circotasi au si inceput sa-l blameze.

Cred ca este cea mai inspirata reeditare si una din cele mai faimoase serii! A.C. Clarke a fost  MARE!  Mai mare si mai bun decit Asimov,nu credeti?!

In curind am sa revin cu noi postari si noi amanunte despre viitoarele aparitii de la diverse edituri.Stay toons!

posted by voicunike

Later edit: Se pare ca bunul meu prieten Horia a vazut in viitor cind a publicat la MillenniumPress  Cronicile Apocalipsei:

Da!  😀  si eu ma numesc supravietuitorul.

De la un prieten foarte drag(uite ca dumnezeu mai asculta si rugile fanilor oropsiti de atita asteptare) am primit cea mai minunata veste! ORCII RUULLZ!

Cred ca cea mai buna terapie din lume post recuperare este primirea vestilor bune IAR DESPRE ACEASTA CARTE POT SPUNE CU MINA PE INIMA CA ESTE EXCEPTIONALA! ENJOY!

L.J.Smith nu-si dezminte maiestria si ne daruieste o poveste emotionanta despre iubire viata si moarte. Daca Harry Potter avea scoala de vrajitorie ,eroina cartii se inscrie la o cu totul si cu totul alta scoala,veti fi mai mult decit satisfacuti de aceste carti ale lui Richelle Mead.

Asa ca nu ezitati si puneti mina pe mouse si clickuiti pe toate titlurile de la LEDA si CORINT.

Satisfactie garantata iar cartile merita totii banii!

Teora-un vis pierdut! 2

Posted: Aprilie 11, 2010 by fansf in Uncategorized

Dupa prima parte iata si ultimele carti din vestita colectie de sf a editurii Teora intrerupta atit de prematur,dar sa incepem cu unul din titanii sefeului mondial:

Marele titan  A.C.Clarke ne delecteaza cu cel mai tare roman al lui.Mai mult decit recomandat!

Izbucnirile adolescentei transpuse in spatiul cosmic,seamana izbitor de mult cu Rite of Pasage.

Niven la superlativ cu aceasta carte!

O culegere de povestiri marca G.R.R. Martin.Prima intilnire cu acest mare scriitor dupa multipremiata si superba nuvela  Regii nisipurilor.Super tare! Very recomended!

Povesti marca Asimov.

Idem!

Inca o carte super misto din seria Lumea Inelara!

O uluitoare calatorie in cel mai enigmatic organ al omului, sa nu uitam ca omul foloseste doar 10% din capacitatea creierului.Ce ar fi daca s-ar folosi macar de 60-70% din creier?

Un Niven absolut senzational!

Sa mergem sa aflam ce este pe aceasta cale martiana!

Nimic nu este imposibil in povestirile lui Egan,iti schimba starea sufleteasca din poveste in poveste!

Roman premiat ,un Haldeman tulburator prin mesajul pacifist transmis! A se citi neaparat!

Nimic nu se compara cu povestile minunate si unice ale lui G.R.R.Martin,eclectice si duse la limita poeziei povestile din aceasta culegere iti vor rezona mult timp in minte.Colosal!

Doua romane cu inconfundabila marca Larry Niven care spulbera orice ai gindit despre extraterestrii,dealtfel multa lume s-a gindit ca Niven si Pournelle sunt extraterestrii reincarnati.

Ultima carte din seria numerotata a colectiei de sf marca Teora.Un Egan care rastoarna toate conceptiile fizicii!

Dupa plecarea marelui MDP de la cirma colectiei a mai fost o zvicnire de scurta durata dupa care tot ce a fost bun si frumos, adica sf-ul, a murit la Teora.Iata aici un Clarke de zile mari!

Dupa moartea marelui autor Isaac Asimov putini s-au incumetat sa scrie cu atita maiestrie in universul Fundatiei cum au reusit acesti trei mari scriitori toti trei premiati cu multrivnitele Hugo si Nebula.

Astfel s-a incheiat aventura sefista a editurii Teora,putea sa continue?! sau nu s-a mai vrut?,raminem consolati cu carti mari scrise de autori mari.
