Publisher Marketing:An epic new science fiction series about faith, family, and alien invasion in the wilds of Alaska. When a shooting star plunges through the atmosphere and touches down in the Alaska wilderness, only two earthlings are present to witness the event. But they perceive two utterly different realities. What park ranger Jace Kuliak sees is a UFO and the arrival of a dangerous alien species from beyond the solar system. What Poppy Prophecy sees is the star called Wormwood, as recorded in Scripture, and the arrival of an archangel of the Apocalypse. The thing is -- they're both sorta right. Poppy Prophecy is the despotic patriarch of a large End-Times prepper family that is busily converting a depleted copper mine into its own private doomsday bunker. Their copper mine is a century-old relic from territorial days when East Coast robber barons ruled Alaska and plundered its mineral wealth. Today the abandoned mine sits in the middle of the largest, wildest, most majestic national park in the United States. But Poppy isn't impressed by mere earthly beauty, and he doesn't mind bulldozing federal land when it suits his purposes. Backcountry Ranger Jace Kuliak does mind, and he and fellow rangers confront the fundamentalist family in an armed standoff over the construction of an illegal airstrip. It doesn't help matters when Ranger Kuliak falls hopelessly in love with Poppy's second daughter, the lovely, innocent, and totally clueless Deuteronomy. An uneasy truce between the Prophecys and the park service is shattered when the falling star lands in their backyard and is claimed by both sides. What is it? Who is it? Better yet, of all the pit stops on all the planets in all the galaxies, why did the Visitor choose this particular rock to screw with?

Eine Zukunft, in der ein Teil der Menschheit länger lebt, als wir uns das überhaupt vorstellen können; eine Zukunft, in der Kinder zu Objekten der Begierde einer ganzen Nation geworden sind; eine Zukunft, in der Nanotechnologie das Leben masslos bequem, aber auch masslos gefährlich gemacht hat ... Unter dem Titel Getting to Know You erschien 2007 in dem US-amerikanischen Verlag Subterranean Press ein Sammelband mit Erzählungen des in Alaska lebenden Schriftstellers David Marusek. SF-Lesern war Marusek zu dem Zeitpunkt bereits ein Begriff. Seit seiner ersten Geschichte "The Earth Is on the Mend", im Mai 1993 in der Zeitschrift Asimov's Science Fiction publiziert, wurden seine Storys und Novellen regelmässig in "Best of"--Anthologien nachgedruckt und für zahlreiche Literaturpreise nominiert. Inzwischen hat David Marusek zwei Romane vorgelegt. Mit Counting Heads (2005) und Mind Over Ship (2009) hat er sich endgültig als herausragender und in vieler Hinsicht bahnbrechender SF-Autor etabliert. Seine Novelle "The Wedding Album" wurde im Jahr 2000 mit dem "Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award" ausgezeichnet. Im Golkonda Verlag erscheint nun ein Sammelband mit fünf Erzählungen und Novellen, die alle vor dem Hintergrund desselben Zukunftsentwurfs spielen wie Maruseks Romane. Darin enthalten sind unter anderem seine beiden Meisternovellen "We Were Out Of Our Minds With Joy" und "The Wedding Album", die im englischsprachigen Raum zu den am häufigsten nachgedruckten SF-Texten überhaupt zählen. David Marusek (Jahrgang 1951) hat bisher einen Band mit Erzählungen und zwei Romane vorgelegt. Mit Counting Heads (2005) und Mind Over Ship (2009) hat er sich endgültig als herausragender und in vieler Hinsicht bahnbrechender SF-Autor etabliert. Seine Novelle "The Wedding Album" wurde im Jahr 2000 mit dem "Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award" ausgezeichnet.
