The Long Earth

(Long Earth 1)

1916: the Western Front. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong, and the wind in the leaves in the trees. Where has the mud, blood and blasted landscape of No Man's Land gone?

2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Cop Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive (some said mad, others dangerous) scientist when she finds a curious gadget - a box containing some wiring, a three-way switch and a...potato. It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way Mankind views his world for ever.

And that is an understatement if ever there was one...

Rezension
"An absorbing collaborative effort from two SF giants...a marriage made in fan heaven - Pratchett's warmth and humanity allied to Baxter's extraordinarily fertile science-fictional imagination...there's much to enjoy...a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of imagineering"
Portrait
Terry Pratchett, geboren 1948, ist einer der erfolgreichsten Autoren der Gegenwart. Von seinen Scheibenwelt-Romanen wurden weltweit rund 45 Millionen Exemplare verkauft, seine Werke sind in 34 Sprachen übersetzt. Auf seinen Lesereisen füllt er spielend ganze Hallen, denn seine Fans können gar nicht genug von dem Mann mit dem hintersinnigen Humor bekommen. Umgeben von den modernsten Computern (und so durch ein Stück Schnur mit dem Rest der Welt verbunden) lebt Terry Pratchett mit seiner Frau Lyn in der englischen Grafschaft Wiltshire, wo er dieses Jahr seine eigenen Gewürzgurken anbaut.
Zitat
"An absorbing collaborative effort from two SF giants...a marriage made in fan heaven - Pratchett's warmth and humanity allied to Baxter's extraordinarily fertile science-fictional imagination...there's much to enjoy...a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of imagineering" -- Adam Roberts GUARDIAN 20120623 "The idea of parallel Earths is one of the most enduring that science fiction has given us, but rarely has it been explored with quite so much gusto as in this new novel by two of the giants of British speculative fiction...a triumph...accessible, fun and thoughtful" -- David Barnett INDEPENDENT 20120701 "***** Literary alchemy...In the hands of Pratchett and Baxter, the possibilites are almost infinite...a story that revels in big ideas...you can sense the excitement of the authors as they toy with the labyrinthine possibilities of their premise, and it's infectious...thrillingly expansive, joyously inventive and utterly engrossing" SFX "[Pratchett] succeeds in working seamlessly with Baxter...adding a welcome shot of fun to the world of science fiction" -- Alison Flood SUNDAY TIMES 20120701 "Wonderfully rich fantasy, full of ingenuity, humour and some rather deep thoughts" READERS' DIGEST
