uzdaju se u biblioteke, univerzitete, baš ih briga za tzv. običnog čoveka ili individualnog istraživača koji nije institucionalizovan.
zato ne možeš danas naći akademsku knjigu (što ova, istina, nije, ali pisali su je stručnjaci, većina njih su profesori) ispod 50 funti, a najčešće su oko 100 funti... :(

Uh, baš je skupo. Knjige sve više postaju eksluzivna roba...

ova knjiga zaslužuje svoj topik jer radi se o jednoj od najznačajnijih i najboljih novijih (a i šire) enciklopedija horora u književnosti.


Enciklopedija horora sa Gulovim pečatom + sa Zlatnim Gulom (TM)!

In THE POWER, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power--they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

King has tenderly staked out a territory for his wife and three daughters, Grace, Lia, and Sky. He has lain the barbed wire; he has anchored the buoys in the water; he has marked out a clear message: Do not enter. Or viewed from another angle: Not safe to leave. Here women are protected from the chaos and violence of men on the mainland. The cult-like rituals and therapies they endure fortify them from the spreading toxicity of a degrading world.
     But when their father, the only man they've ever seen, disappears, they retreat further inward until the day two men and a boy wash ashore. Over the span of one blistering hot week, a psychological cat-and-mouse game plays out. Sexual tensions and sibling rivalries flare as the sisters confront the amorphous threat the strangers represent. Can they survive the men?
     A haunting, riveting debut about the capacity for violence and the potency of female desire, The Water Cure both devastates and astonishes as it reflects our own world back at us.

Maybe it’s the end of the world, but not for Candace Chen, a millennial, first-generation American and office drone meandering her way into adulthood in Ling Ma’s offbeat, wryly funny, apocalyptic satire, Severance.

In the near-future United States, a one-child policy is ruthlessly enforced. Everyone follows the Rule of One. But Ava Goodwin, daughter of the head of the Texas Family Planning Division, has a secret—one her mother died to keep and her father has helped to hide for her entire life.

She has an identical twin sister, Mira.

Zanimljivo je da se kao jedan od aktivnih učesnika konvencije javlja i neki naš zemljak Mario Racic jr. koji je sa Samom Moskowitzem izdavao par fanzina krajem 30tih i početkom 40tih.

Pol je kasnije nastavio da bude uticajna figura kao urednik i pisac, i uvelike je oblikovao izdavačku politiku sve do novog talasa. Pokušavala sam da nabavim tu njegovu biografiju ali nisam je našla.

PS Ipak jesam :)

Da, ali trvenja sa profašističkim spektrom predatiraju prvi worldcon, tak oda je to verovatno bilo pitanje slamke i kamiljih leđa:

Frederik Pohl joined science fiction fandom in the 1930s and quickly became an integral part of the New York science fiction scene.  He was denied entry to the first Worldcon in 1939 as part of the “Exclusion Act.”

a to je ovo:

The Guest of Honor at the first Worldcon was Frank R. Paul and the event was chaired by Sam Moskowitz. Along with Moskowitz, other organizers were James V. Taurasi and Will Sykora. Notable people attending included John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, L. Sprague de Camp, Ray Bradbury, Hannes Bok, Milton A. Rothman, John D. Clark, Jack Williamson, and Harry Harrison.

In addition to its groundbreaking role as the first of its kind, the convention was noteworthy for the exclusion of a number of politicized Futurians by convention chair Sam Moskowitz; those excluded were Donald A. Wollheim, Frederick Pohl, John Michel, Robert A. W. Lowndes, and Jack Gillespie, an event known to fannish historians as "The Great Exclusion Act."

According to Pohl, in his autobiography The Way the Future Was, the Futurians held their own counter-convention which was attended by several who went to the regular convention. He also downplayed the aspect that politics played, himself believing that it was a personality conflict between the convention organizers and the Futurians and said "We pretty nearly had it coming," continuing with "What we Futurians made very clear to the rest of New York fandom was that we thought we were better than they were. For some reason that annoyed them."

Ackerman and his girlfriend and fellow fanzine editor Myrtle R. Douglas ("Morojo") attended the convention in costumes designed and sewn by Douglas: this is considered a forerunner to modern fan costuming (which is known as "cosplay").
