              Dazzlingly original. -- Daily Mail Gripping, touching and funny. -- TLS The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for the...ir Faith; the Culture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender. Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it. It was the fate of Horza, the Changer, and his motley crew of unpredictable mercenaries, human and machine, actually to find it, and with it their own destruction.

              Les autos tamponneuses (Paperback)

              By Hoffmann, Stephane; Faye, Eric; Banks, Iain M.

              -Le mariage a toujours ressemble a un tour en autos tamponneuses: c'est inconfortable, on prend des coups, on en donne, on tourne en rond, on ne va nulle part mais, au moins, on n'est pas seul.-Lorsque Pierre veut prendre sa retraite pour passer le reste de sa vie aupres de sa fe...mme dans leur belle maison du golfe du Morbihan, Helene ne l'accepte pas. Elle ne tient pas a decouvrir un vieux mari en l'homme qu'elle aime depuis toujours. Une nouvelle vie commence. Tout est a reinventer. Apres Chateau Bougon (prix Nimier 1991), Stephane Hoffmann poursuit avec brio la plus pessimiste et la plus gaie des uvres romanesques, en observateur toujours inattendu, feroce et bienveillant, de nos m urs contemporaines. Chez Hoffmann, l ironie et la satire (servies par un style d epeiste) sont une maniere de ne pas ceder a l emotion. Aussi iode qu alcoolise, ce roman tres drole serre le c ur. Jerome Garcin, Le Nouvel observateur.

              The New York Times bestselling Culture novel... The Scavenger species are circling. It is, truly, provably, the End Days for the Gzilt civilization. An ancient people, organized on military principles and yet almost perversely peaceful, the Gzilt helped set up the Culture ten tho...usand years earlier and were very nearly one of its founding societies, deciding not to join only at the last moment. Now they've made the collective decision to follow the well-trodden path of millions of other civilizations; they are going to Sublime, elevating themselves to a new and almost infinitely more rich and complex existence. Amid preparations though, the Regimental High Command is destroyed. Lieutenant Commander (reserve) Vyr Cossont appears to have been involved, and she is now wanted - dead, not alive. Aided only by an ancient, reconditioned android and a suspicious Culture avatar, Cossont must complete her last mission given to her by the High Command. She must find the oldest person in the Culture, a man over nine thousand years old, who might have some idea what really happened all that time ago. It seems that the final days of the Gzilt civilization are likely to prove its most perilous.
