Retrograde by , Book Resume:

“For lovers of Andy Weir’s The Martian, here’s a true hard-science-fiction tale set on the red planet — a terrific blend of high tech and high tension, of science and suspense, of character and crisis.” — Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award–winning author of Red Planet Blues “Post-apocalyptic disaster meets fractured utopian space exploration in this terrifying tale, which Cawdron (Anomaly) sets in a scientific outpost on Mars . . . This tense cat-and-mouse game plays off fears . . . to satisfying result.” — Publishers Weekly Venturing into space and traveling to Mars sounds like an exotic adventure, but the reality of living on a rocky, frozen, lifeless planet is exacting on the Mars Endeavour crew. The exhilaration of reaching the surface of Mars has worn off for the public, and the exploration has moved into its scientific phase. The only viable option for long-term habitation lies hundreds of feet beneath the surface, in lava caves that shield humans from harsh cosmic radiation. Connor, Harrison, and Liz are senior members of the U.S. module. When war breaks out on Earth and rumors spread to Mars, their core principles are rocked by the devastation and loss of friends and family. Whom can you trust on an international mission when your countries are at war? As colonists from different nations struggle to figure out what really happened on Earth, grief and anger become pitted against camaraderie and the spirit of exploration. “Science fiction as it should be. Retrograde combines realistic characters with depictions of Mars as our explorers will one day find it in a powerful story. A must-read!” — Ben Bova, Hugo Award winner and author of the Grand Tour series

Hard Times for These Times by Charles Dickens Book Resume:

This carefully crafted ebook: “Hard Times: For These Times (Unabridged)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Hard Times – For These Times (commonly known as Hard Times) is the tenth novel by Charles Dickens, first published in 1854. The book tells the tragic story of Louisa Gradgrind and her father. When Louisa, trapped in a loveless marriage, falls prey to an idle seducer, the crisis forces her father to reconsider his cherished system. Yet even as the development of the story reflects Dickens's growing pessimism about human nature and society, Hard Times marks his return to the theme which had made his early works so popular: the amusements of the people. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812 – 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.

Void Star by Zachary Mason Book Resume:

A riveting, beautifully written, fugue-like novel of AIs, memory, violence, and mortality Not far in the future the seas have risen and the central latitudes are emptying, but it’s still a good time to be rich in San Francisco, where weapons drones patrol the skies to keep out the multitudinous poor. Irina isn’t rich, not quite, but she does have an artificial memory that gives her perfect recall and lets her act as a medium between her various employers and their AIs, which are complex to the point of opacity. It’s a good gig, paying enough for the annual visits to the Mayo Clinic that keep her from aging. Kern has no such access; he’s one of the many refugees in the sprawling drone-built favelas on the city’s periphery, where he lives like a monk, training relentlessly in martial arts, scraping by as a thief and an enforcer. Thales is from a different world entirely—the mathematically inclined scion of a Brazilian political clan, he’s fled to L.A. after the attack that left him crippled and his father dead. A ragged stranger accosts Thales and demands to know how much he can remember. Kern flees for his life after robbing the wrong mark. Irina finds a secret in the reflection of a laptop’s screen in her employer’s eyeglasses. None are safe as they’re pushed together by subtle forces that stay just out of sight. Vivid, tumultuous, and propulsive, Void Star is Zachary Mason’s mind-bending follow-up to his bestselling debut, The Lost Books of the Odyssey.

One Hand Does Not Catch a Buffalo: 50 Years of Amazing Peace Corps Stories by Aaron Barlow Book Resume:

Africa is a complicated place, and the Peace Corps Volunteers who have worked in 43 African nations have seen it all: from public executions to public celebrations to life in a time of AIDS. This heartfelt collection is the first of its kind to chronicle 50 years of Peace Corps service. Stories range from poignant to hilarious, involve political intrigue and cultural missteps, illuminating the joys and agony of volunteering abroad and representing the United States in the process. Sixty stories provide a broad overview and give readers a glimpse into the life and times of these brave volunteers, who each learned at least one new language and went to work in the villages and cities from Morocco to South Africa. They worked hard, too. But in these stories you will see that they also danced, faced death by elephant, and witnessed unbearably grim events. One is admired for her “big butt,” another reminded that he had taught proper police procedure in a time of civil unrest. Saying “I was there” is sometimes a bittersweet declaration.

Zima Blue by Alastair Reynolds Book Resume:

A fabulous collection spanning the galaxies and career of SF superstar Alastair Reynolds Reynolds' pursuit of truth is not limited to wide-angle star smashing - not that stars don't get pulverised when one character is gifted (or cursed) with an awful weapon by the legendary Merlin. Reynolds' protagonists find themselves in situations of betrayal, whether by a loved one's accidental death, as in 'Signal to Noise', or by a trusted wartime authority, in 'Spirey and the Queen'. His fertile imagination can resurrect Elton John on Mars in 'Understanding Space and Time' or make prophets of the human condition out of pool-cleaning robots in the title story. But overall, the stories in ZIMA BLUE represent a more optimistic take on humanity's future, a view that says there may be wars, there may be catastrophes and cosmic errors, but something human will still survive.

Existence by David Brin Book Resume:

Bestselling, award-winning futurist David Brin returns to globe-spanning, high concept SF with Existence. Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there's something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn't on the decades' old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth's infomesh about an "alien artifact." Thrown into the maelstrom of worldwide shared experience, the Artifact is a game-changer. A message in a bottle; an alien capsule that wants to communicate. The world reacts as humans always do: with fear and hope and selfishness and love and violence. And insatiable curiosity.

La nuit de Kahina by François Léotard Book Resume:

1950. La France sort de l’Occupation, exsangue. A l’autre bout du monde, son Empire colonial se désagrège. C’est là-bas, à Saigon, que deux hommes en rupture de ban se rencontrent dans les rangs de l’armée. Max – le narrateur – est photographe de guerre pour l’état-major. Bob, Irlandais au passé trouble, entré dans la Légion Etrangère pour échapper à la police de son pays, est un parachutiste qui fuit son destin. Entre eux, l’amitié s’impose comme un coup de foudre. En Algérie, quelques années plus tard, tous deux tombent amoureux de la même femme, Kahina, jeune kabyle violée dans d’obscures circonstances, un jour de 1957, alors qu’au même moment son père se faisait égorger sauvagement pour avoir été l’informateur des Français. Entre Marseille et Alger, entre Paris et l’Irlande, les sentiments brusques, la camaraderie, l’histoire intime et l’histoire collective d’une nation martyrisée, l’amour comme rédemption, hantent ces hommes blessés. Ensemble, après les guerres, Bob et Max fabriqueront de faux papiers. Max ira en prison tandis que Bob, l’être de fuite, disparaîtra sans laisser de traces... Ecrivant au fond de la cellule où il est enfermé, le narrateur soumis aux défaillances de sa mémoire nous livre un récit fragmentaire. Est-ce un adieu à la France qui s’en va ? Ou un adieu à l’héroïsme ?

Dans l'ombre de Bob Denard by Walter Bruyère-Ostells Book Resume:

Début des années 1960 : en pleine décolonisation du Congo belge, la sécession du Katanga provoque un afflux de combattants étrangers. Parmi ces "Affreux" (comme les surnomme la presse), les Français sont les plus actifs. Ils entament une sorte d'âge d'or fait de coups de main et de coups d'État qui s'étendent sur tout le continent, et qui leur permettront de prendre entre autres le contrôle des Comores de 1978 à 1989. Jusqu'à la fin de la guerre froide, ces "chiens de guerre" servent clandestinement les intérêts d'anciennes puissances coloniales désireuses de conserver une forte influence en Afrique. Le chef des mercenaires français, Bob Denard, fait l'objet d'une intense médiatisation.Pour la première fois, cet ouvrage analyse l'action de ces combattants de l'ombre mais aussi le rapport à l'argent et à l'aventure, ainsi que les hiérarchies internes de ce groupe. En croisant les archives françaises et étrangères, les archives privées de Bob Denard - inédites à ce jour - et de nombreux témoignages de première main, l'auteur nous plonge, loin des clichés, dans la vie quotidienne de ces hommes qui vont de conflit en conflit. Certains sont jeunes et politisés, d'autres des guerriers expérimentés. Plusieurs cultures et générations s'entrecroisent : les baroudeurs, les "corsaires de la République", les "gangsters".Fers de lance de la lutte anticommuniste, relais des réseaux occultes de la Françafrique avant d'être désavoués par Paris, alternant fortune, gloire et défaites, ces "Affreux" ne trouvent plus leur place dans le monde post-guerre froide : leur modèle sera bientôt remplacé par celui des sociétés militaires privées de type anglo-saxon.Maître de conférences à Sciences Po Aix, Walter Bruyère-Ostells est notamment l'auteur de Histoire des mercenaires, de 1789 à nos jours (Tallandier, 2011).

Louisiane by Maurice Denuzière Book Resume:

1920-1930. La Louisiane des années folles. Le pays des bayous est devenu, avec la prohibition, la terre d’élection des contrebandiers, fournisseurs d’Al Capone. La bohème de La Nouvelle-Orléans accueille William Faulkner, Sherwood Anderson et le peintre Pascin. On croise des héros modernes tels que le général Pershing, Lindbergh ; des Américains de Montparnasse, tel Ernest Hemingway. Les héros sont mêlés à des événements tels que l’affaire Sacco et Vanzetti, la conférence de la paix au Moyen-Orient, le procès du darwinisme, les tragiques inondations de 1927. À Bagatelle, Osmond de Vigors — arrière-petit-fils de Virginie, l’inoubliable dame de Bagatelle — s’efforce, porté par l’amour de Lorna — la petite-fille de Gustave, truculent descendant de mousquetaire — de maintenir, en digne Cavalier, les valeurs du Vieux Sud aristocratique, tandis que progressent l’avion, la radio, le disque, le cinéma, le confort et que se développent le racisme, la criminalité, la violence, les idéologies nouvelles. Après Louisiane (vingt-cinq traductions), Fausse-Rivière (trente-deux semaines en tête des meilleures ventes) et Bagatelle, qui a connu un succès comparable en faisant rêver des millions de lecteurs, les Trois-Chênes, roman historique salué par la critique, constitue le quatrième volet d’une suite romanesque dont chaque tome peut être lu indépendamment des précédents. La critique unanime a reconnu son auteur comme un des maîtres du roman historique.

Bonnes nouvelles de Chassignet by Gérard Oberlé Book Resume:

Erudit non conformiste, gastronome distingué, œnologue jouisseur, aventurier mélomane, amoureux de l'amitié, le Morvandiau Chassignet, personnage emblématique des premiers romans de Gérard Oberlé, ressemble beaucoup à son créateur, tout comme les trois histoires qu’il nous conte ici... En Egypte, dans un hôtel d’Assouan où il passe ses hivers, une femme mystérieuse fascine Chassignet : par quel étrange destin Mitzi se trouve-elle sur les bords du Nil pour y jouir d’une ultime escale ? En Nouvelle Calédonie, un bourlingueur au bout du rouleau trouve enfin la sérénité dans une tribu kanak. En Arizona, deux copains tombent en panne dans un bled perdu peuplé de ploucs racistes qui les retiennent otages. Non, nous ne sommes ni chez Paul Bowles ou Agatha Christie, ni chez le Simenon de Quartier nègre, ni chez le Douglas Kennedy de Cul-de-sac : les lecteurs enthousiastes de Retour à Zornhof retrouveront ici la "magie-Oberlé". Un grand vent d'audace et de liberté souffle à travers ses livres, qui font de lui le plus brillant et le plus souriant représentant du baroque dans les Lettres contemporaines.

La mort d'un ministre by Patrick Rambaud Book Resume:

Pourquoi le ministre Robert Charbonnier est-il mort ? A cause du scandale immobilier dont on l'accuse ? Parce qu'il en savait trop ? Mais sur quoi ? Et d'abord, s'est-il vraiment suicidé ? Se noyer dans une flaque d'eau, quelle drôle d'idée. Voilà ce qui fait courir Fosca, un flic devenu journaliste dans un hebdomadaire à gros tirage. Il va mener une enquête longue et difficile, car on cherche de toute part à le dissuader, on menace même ses enfants et son amie. Les pressions sur son journal s'avèrent efficaces, et il se retrouve bientôt seul avec ses doutes. La Mort d'un ministre relève à la fois du roman noir et de la comédie de moeurs. C'est le portrait vrai d'un monde perverti. Pourtant, il serait vain de reconnaître des personnages réels dans le truand, le politicien douteux, le rédacteur en chef surmené, ou l'homme d'affaires ambigu : chacun d'eux représente aussi un caractère de notre époque - comme en son temps La Bruyère peignit le Distrait, l'Avare ou le Glouton.
