  • Aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen nachvollziehbar. Sollte ich im Lotto gewinnen, lasse ich sie mir privat übersetzten!

    Es gibt einen Grund unsterblich zu sein! Man kann die meisten wichtigen Bücher lesen!
    Real Music Fans: "God Give us Malcom Young back and we give you Justin Bieber!" God: "Fuck no!"

  • Die Reihe HANDYMAN JACK wird auch bei Festa nicht fortgesetzt. Es finden sich von Buch zu Buch weniger und weniger Leser. Der Buchmarkt wird kleiner, das digitale Zeitalter hinterlässt Spuren ... Es tut mir leid.

    Oh, das ist jetzt aber sehr enttäuschend.


    Da muss man sich als Leser schon die Frage stellen, ob man überhaupt noch mit einer Reihe beginnen soll, bevor der letzte Teil erschienen ist. (das ist jetzt nicht alleine auf den Handyman bezogen)


    :(

  • wenn alle nur zögern, werden serien wahrscheinlich von
    verlag und autoren, irgendwann aus dem gedächtnis verbannt...


    ich bin froh (und danke meinen englisch-lehrerinnen für ihr dazutun) wilson
    in seiner muttersprache zu geniessen.

  • Ein schwarzer Tag ;(

    Ja jetzt bin ich nicht mehr wie früher
    aber das find' ich ganz okay
    denn ich hab' alles hinter mir gelassen
    was mich aufhält
    und jetzt bin ich nicht mehr wie früher
    ja, vielleicht wirkt das arrogant
    doch vielleicht haben wir uns all die Jahre
    nie wirklich gekannt.


  • da viele neue bücher mit berücksichtigt werden müssen und
    ich noch einige rücksprachen und aktualisierungen einfliessen lassen will,
    kommt die neue übersicht zu f.paul wilsons "die geheime geschichte
    der welt", hier, erst ende mai 2019 ans licht! :)

  • Hat Mr. Wilson grad auf FB gepostet:


    "NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: I just signed contracts with Dynamite Comics for a Repairman Jack comic-book / graphic-novel series that will include mostly new RJ stories by yours truly. Looking forward to upping the bizarre factor a little more than I allowed myself in the novels."

    "Why should I apologize for being a monster? Has anyone ever apologized for turning me into one?"

  • um mich von der schlechten Nachricht über das Ende der Handyman Reihe im Festa Verlag hinwegzutrösten habe ich endlich mit der Adversery-Reihe begonnen, die ich noch für solch schlechte Zeiten zurückgehalten habe.
    Gestern "Erweckung" ausgelesen. Was soll ich sagen. Hach :thumbsup:

    9) FF MOVIE REVIEWS
    The FF Rating system is gauged by use of the FF button in increments of 10% of running time. If I FF through a tenth of the film (i.e., 9 minutes of a 90-min film), its FF Rating is 1. Thus, the lower the FF Rating, the higher my level of engagement. (Note, I didn't say the better the film. Crap can - and often does - engage me.) FF = 5 is the threshold of unwatchable.
    Bail Factor: If you turn off a film at the halfway point, that's an automatic 5. If you bail after only a quarter or so, that's an automatic 7.5. Then you add how much FFing you did before shutdown.
    Why should you care what I think of a film? Beats me.
    Movie plot summaries abound on the web, so you don't need me for that.
    NB: I've now collected all my FF reviews (I was shocked at the hundreds of reviews I've done) in one spot:http://fpaul.wordpress.com/about/


    THE WIFE
    A rather dull flick where you sit around waiting for the big reveal that you sussed out in the first ten minutes but you're hoping it's not that because it's too obvious. I didn't think Glenn Close was any better in this than in a dozen other roles (frankly, she wasn't given a lot to work with). In its favor I can say it's a lot better than "Roma."
    FF=1

    YOU (Netflix)
    A bit contrived, lots of plot holes, but I watched all 10 episodes because the characters were so well done and every time I thought I knew where it was going, it took an unexpected turn.
    FF=1
    Well, that's it for now. I've taken up enough of your time. More next month. Back to work.

    3/1 – I know privacy is a myth these days, but I'm still way creeped out when I come home from the store and see a message on my smartphone: "How was Wegman's?"
    3/2 – Interesting...the hipster effect—the counterintuitive phenomenon in which people who oppose mainstream culture all end up looking the same. http://tinyurl.com/yxw2nxg8
    3/3 – OUR PLASTIC OCEANS - as usual, Skeptoid Podcast presents a well-researched article. The surprising takeaway is that the US contributes less than 1% of the plastic in the oceans. https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4665
    3/5 – THE WIDOW - I started streaming this. What did Kate Beckinsale do to her face? It doesn't move... like a mask.
    3/6 – Interesting...this is why I can't wait for A World War II Fairytale: The Making of Michael Mann's The Keephttp://tinyurl.com/y25e5hfn

    3/12 – RiP: HAL BLAINE: I learned basic rock drumming from listening to the Ventures (I was in a surf band at the shore, after all) but in the 60s I wanted to be Hal Blaine. http://tinyurl.com/y6dz68eg
    3/22 – AOC - you'll watch this and say, Oh, SNL is ripping on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (as if) - but check the date: 2012!!! FUNNY!!
    3/27 – just back from a trip to my accountant. "Taxation with representation ain't so hot either." – Gerald Barzan

    PANACEA is the prequel to THE GOD GENE – about a hunt for the legendary cure-all. No, it's not Repairman Jack, but if you liked the Jack novels, you'll like this.

    1) OCCURRENCES
    4/3 – There's something so Orwellian about erasing the past, and it's happening every day. It can be as trivial as a Simpson's episode or as sinister as rewriting history books. This short article is a wake-up call. http://tinyurl.com/y27bofyl
    4/4 - According to iHeart Radio, on 4/4/64, The Beatles held all top 5 spots on the singles chart with “Can’t Buy Me Love” at #1, followed by “Love Me Do,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Please Please Me,” ALONG WITH ANOTHER 9 SINGLES IN THE CHART https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100/1964-04-04
    4/7 - With a bit of chagrin, I refer you to this list of "Best Vampire Books" which lists my faux vampire novel, THE KEEP, and neglects my real vampire novel, MIDNIGHT MASS. http://tinyurl.com/yyj3ayhu
    4/7 – more Beatles: Here's a staggering statistic for you.
    Who sold the most albums in the decade 2000-2009?
    The answer is Eminem with 32 million albums sold.
    Who came in at number 2?
    The Beatles with 30 Million albums sold.
    The Beatles outsold The Red Hot Chilli Peppers who had two new albums, a live album, and a greatest hits package released in that time. They outsold Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2 and every other artist you care to mention with the exception of Eminem.
    Who is the most popular band of all time? The Beatles, easily.
    4/16 - THE GARGOYLES OF NOTRE DAME - I've loved these forever. Charles Laughton's closing line as Quasimodo: "Why was I not made of stone like thee?" As far as I know, they all survived the tragedy. http://tinyurl.com/y3ake9z7
    4/20 – PUN AHEAD: Nobody knows what started the fire in Notre Dame, but Quasimodo has a hunch.
    4/21 – Check out trailer #2 for HOBBS & SHAW - looks like Chris Morgan has over-the-topped himself again. I love the way the F&F films are able to put the laws of momentum and inertia -- in fact, all of physics -- on hold. Wild! http://tinyurl.com/y2nyno9v
    4/25 - Honored to be a guest of Hideo Kojima for his panel with Norman Reedus at the Tribeca Film Festival. I can't wait to play "Death Stranding."
    4/25 – while in Tribeca I stopped in the Mysterious Bookshop and signed a bunch of copies of ROCKET TO THE MORGUE. It's a classic murder mystery but also a mind-boggling roman a clef about the Golden Age of SF with Heinlein and Kuttner and L. Ron as disguised characters. Otto Penzler said call the store and they'll mail one out to you. (212) 587-1011

    9) FF MOVIE REVIEWS
    The FF Rating system is gauged by use of the FF button in increments of 10% of running time. If I FF through a tenth of the film (i.e., 9 minutes of a 90-min film), its FF Rating is 1. Thus, the lower the FF Rating, the higher my level of engagement. (Note, I didn't say the better the film. Crap can - and often does - engage me.) FF = 5 is the threshold of unwatchable.
    Bail Factor: If you turn off a film at the halfway point, that's an automatic 5. If you bail after only a quarter or so, that's an automatic 7.5. Then you add how much FFing you did before shutdown.
    Why should you care what I think of a film? Beats me.
    Movie plot summaries abound on the web, so you don't need me for that.
    NB: I've now collected all my FF reviews (I was shocked at the hundreds of reviews I've done) in one spot:http://fpaul.wordpress.com/about/

    AQUAMAN
    Finally got around to seeing it last night. Visually stunning but conceptually moronic. It opens with automatic assault rifle barrage aboard a submarine. Really? Then that's compounded by daddy launching a 40mm grenade at our hero. Double really? That was when I put my brain on hold. Puzzled by the scene making sure we saw a copy of a "Dunwich Horror" paperback when "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" would have been much more appropriate. Some of the visuals are truly amazing, though -- swimming down into the trench with the flare with all those monsters in pursuit was jaw dropping.
    FF=2

    Well, that's it for now. I've taken up enough of your time. More next month. Back to work.

    ENDING A SERIES:
    Avengers: Endgame – While I'm not a Marvel fan and couldn't identify a lot of the players in the last battle (and haven't seen Captain Marvel yet), I thought its tie-up of so many loose ends hit most of the plot points and emotional buttons. (I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Agent Carter).today and was quite moved.
    Game of Thrones – Though I didn't see a need for a redo of the last season (really, a petition?), I did find it emotionally lacking. All those years of watching deserve catharsis, and GoT didn't provide it. Not a bad finale, but definitely not as satisfying as we needed.
    Deadwood – that's the way to do it. I was a bit disappointed that Swearengen didn't have a more heroic ending, but then he uttered that last line. Bam!

    JOHN WICK 3
    Truly amazing action film, but I admit to wearying of the endless chop-socky in the third act. Some of those scenes could easily have been trimmed. Great ending, though. Ready for Chap. 4 in 2021.

    UPDATED! EPHEMERATA V3.0: The Odds and Ends of a Writing Life. 165k words of ephemera I've written and published (or not) over the decades. This revised edition has an extra pieces added. If you bought the 2nd iteration, just reload it onto your device and the new version appears. Magic! I’m publishing Ephemerata exclusively in ebook form because it’s a work in progress. As time goes by I’ll update it (as I did in February) with orphaned pieces that surface from the past or ones that are too new at the moment and must remain exclusive to their original venue for a while.
    After a commercial break we'll get to the usual tedious tidbits, trivialities, and miscellanies since last we met:

    Slim picking here this month, I'm afraid. Been crunching on a new book and managed to finish it just at the end of the month, so that's dominated my attention. However...

    EPHEMERATA V3.0 (see above) has bits of fiction in it, but is mostly non-fiction. Over 100 short pieces of this and that.
    PANACEA is the prequel to THE GOD GENE – about a hunt for the legendary cure-all. No, it's not Repairman Jack, but if you liked the Jack novels, you'll like this. There's a little bit of Jack in Rick Hayden (I couldn't help it) and Panacea fits into the Secret History. I mean, what's not to like? Now in paperbackand signed limited edition

    6) "REPAIRMAN JACK" - THE MOVIE . . . wait - THE TV SHOW . . . wait . . .
    [Historical note: Years ago I sold film/TV rights to THE TOMB to Beacon Films. The idea has been to title the film "Repairman Jack" and turn our guy into a franchise character. The project has spent 20 years in development hell, chewing up 6 or 7 writers who've churned out reams of scripts.
    We're looking toward TV now. Can't say any more because I don't know any more.

    It has stuff with a neato-cool RJ logo on everything from T-shirts to caps to coffee cups to a wonderful poster by Susan Lee. (Even thongs!)
    For you SF nuts and fans of my LaNague Federation series, Susan and Lisa have added a new line at the Repairman Jack store: the LaNague Federation logo on front and "KYFHO" on the back. [For those unfamiliar with the term, I invented the acronym way back when for AN ENEMY OF THE STATE and now it pops up everywhere. Google it if you can't guess the meaning.]
    And now, by popular demand from you gun nuts and fans of Abe Grossman, ISHER SPORTS SHOP shirts and stuff are available. A design by the inimitable Susan Lee with a clever logo created by members of the website's Forum. Check it out.http://www.cafepress.com/repairmanjack/

    9) FF MOVIE REVIEWS
    The FF Rating system is gauged by use of the FF button in increments of 10% of running time. If I FF through a tenth of the film (i.e., 9 minutes of a 90-min film), its FF Rating is 1. Thus, the lower the FF Rating, the higher my level of engagement. (Note, I didn't say the better the film. Crap can - and often does - engage me.) FF = 5 is the threshold of unwatchable.
    Bail Factor: If you turn off a film at the halfway point, that's an automatic 5. If you bail after only a quarter or so, that's an automatic 7.5. Then you add how much FFing you did before shutdown.
    Why should you care what I think of a film? Beats me.
    Movie plot summaries abound on the web, so you don't need me for that.
    NB: I've now collected all my FF reviews (I was shocked at the hundreds of reviews I've done) in one spot:http://fpaul.wordpress.com/about/

    CHERNOBYL
    Well, I didn't intend to see this but people kept saying how good it was. Glad I did. It's a gripping tale of rampant incompetence and the dangers of statism. I was struck when, with a reactor completely destroyed, one of the scientists was told that nuclear disasters simply don't happen in the Soviet state. I immediately flashed back to "Citizen X" when the psychiatrist investigating the child murders was told "There is no serial killer in the Soviet state." Party affiliation trumps competence - the head of the nuclear energy department didn't know how a reactor worked, and on and on. You have to ask yourself: How could a disaster NOT occur?
    FF=0


    Well, that's it for now. I've taken up enough of your time. More next month. Back to work.

    "Why should I apologize for being a monster? Has anyone ever apologized for turning me into one?"

  • Lese gerade Nightworld.
    Schön, wie sich zum Ende der Widersacher-Reihe alles zusammenfügt und alle alten Bekannten wieder auftauchen.
    Bin noch nicht ganz durch, aber Nightworld ist auf jedenfall ein sehr sehr würdiges Finale.


    und danach?


    darum habe ich mir noch nachträglich den letzten mir fehlenden Handyman Roman gekauft und zwar Todessumpf.
    als ich die Reihe damals gelesen habe, konnte ich diesen vergriffenen Teil nicht unter 50 Euro bekommen. Jetzt habe ich ihn also doch noch.

  • Ich muss igendwann Nightworld noch einmal lesen, da es ja leider keine neuen Bände mehr gibt und ich das Ende nicht mehr im Kopf habe!

    Es gibt einen Grund unsterblich zu sein! Man kann die meisten wichtigen Bücher lesen!
    Real Music Fans: "God Give us Malcom Young back and we give you Justin Bieber!" God: "Fuck no!"

  • So, liebe Leser, jetzt ist es soweit. Ich bin durch.


    Die Tränen aus Mitgefühl und Begeisterung sind getrocknet, die Gänsehaut noch leicht vorhanden.


    Nightworld grandios. Als Abschluss herausragend.


    Den Kosmos, den Wilson hier abgeliefert hat, sucht seinesgleichen.


    Allen, die immer noch hadern, ob Sie das Wagnis Wilson wagen sollen, kann ich nur sagen: Jep.
    Auch wenn nicht jeder Roman der erwartete Pageturner ist, ist er allemal besser als Durchschnitt und die Belohnung am Ende sind die Smarties auf dem Schokoladeneis.


    Jetzt bin ich schon sehr traurig, dass es vorbei ist.
