Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW AN EXCITING NEW SERIES FROM NETFLIX • The shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning in this “tour de force of genre-bending, a brilliantly realized exercise in science fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen. Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold. Praise for Altered Carbon “Compelling . . . immensely entertaining . . . [Richard] Morgan’s writing is vivid and his plotting inventive.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “A fascinating trip . . . Pure high-octane science fiction mixes with the classic noir private-eye tale.”—Orlando Sentinel “Gritty and vivid . . . looks as if we have another interstellar hero on our hands.”—USA Today

Summary:

The 2018 Netflix series Altered Carbon is a vital contribution to the cyberpunk renaissance, among such titles as Snowpiercer or Blade Runner 2049. This collection of new essays answers the question: is this increasing popularity of cyberpunk a sign of recognition of the genre's transgressive aspects, such as a stark critique of capitalism, or is it the opposite--a sign of the genre's failure to successfully criticize modernity? The contributors consider the series as taking on current issues, from a critique of neoliberalism, through the ethical aspects of biotechnology, up to thanatology. They provoke questions about what it means to be human in a world in which death does not exist. Essays evaluate the surging popularity of the series and cyberpunk at large from a variety of critical perspectives, shedding new light on a challenging and inventive series.

Summary:

Fifty years after the events of ALTERED CARBON, Takeshi Kovacs is serving as a mercenary in the Procterate-sponsored war to put down Joshuah Kemp's revolution on the planet Sanction IV. He is offered the chance to join a covert team chasing a prize whose value is limitless -- and whose dangers are endless. Here is a novel that takes mankind to the brink. A breakneck-paced crime thriller, ALTERED CARBON took its readers deep into the universe Morgan had so compellingly realised without ever letting them escape the onward rush of the plot. BROKEN ANGELS melds SF, the war novel and the spy thriller to take the reader below the surface of this future and lay bare the treacheries, betrayals and follies that leave man so ill-prepared for the legacy he has been given: the stars. This is SF at its dizzying best: superb, yet subtle, world-building; strong yet sensitive characterisation; awesome yet believable technology, thilling yet profound writing. Richard Morgan is set to join the genre's world-wide elite.

Summary:

Machines, avez-vous donc une âme ? Telle est la question qui déchire l'Eglise catholique en ce début du IIIe millénaire, où un vaste réseau informatique permet de stocker les duplicata numérisés de nos personnalités en attendant de les greffer sur des clones - et du même coup de faire accéder l'humanité à une forme d'immortalité. Jusque-là, le Vatican s'est refusé à considérer l'âme comme un simple logiciel et à admettre que les " entités successibles " puissent en posséder une, d'où une baisse grandissante de sa popularité déjà bien entamée. Une situation à laquelle Mary 1re, papesse de choc nouvellement élue, est décidée à mettre fin au risque de se frotter à Satan... Ce sera le projet Deus Ex. Comme dans deux ex machina.

Summary:

Hakan Veil est un ex-agent de sécurité haut de gamme, dont le corps équipé de technologies militaires fait de lui une véritable machine à tuer. Ses anciens employeurs l'ont abandonné sur une planète Mars troublée, où les institutions terriennes se battent pour l'argent et le pouvoir sur fond de luttes d'indépendance. Mais Veil rêve de retourner sur Terre – ce que lui offrent les autorités terriennes, s'il accepte d'assurer la protection de l'une de leurs employées. Une mission facile pour un expert comme lui... jusqu'à ce que tout bascule. Lorsque sa cliente se met à enquêter sur la mystérieuse disparition d'un gagnant de la loterie, elle dévoile un nid d'intrigues et de meurtres. Veil reprend ces investigations à son compte, déterrant de terribles secrets enfouis sous la surface martienne. La machine à tuer devient alors la cible de puissants ennemis prêts à tout pour l'éliminer... « Jouissif. De l'action digne d'un thriller dans un décor cyberpunk, au service d'un récit très noir, dont l'intrigue complexe ne cesse de tenir le lecteur en haleine. » - Los Angeles Times « Une intrigue politique d'une intelligence incroyable, agrémentée d'excellentes scènes de combat. » - The Guardian « Dans des décors de cinéma, Morgan développe son histoire avec une précision diabolique et une grâce rageuse. » - Paul Di Filippo, auteur de La Trilogie Steampunk

Summary:

This is high action, ideas driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance. Takeshi Kovacs has come home. Home to Harlan's World. An ocean planet with only 5% of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Try and get above the weather in anything more sophisticated than a helicopter and the Martian orbital platforms will burn you out of the sky. And death doesn't just wait for you in the seas and the skies. On land, from the tropical beaches and swamps of Kossuth to the icy, machine-infested wastes of New Hokkaido the hard won gains of the Quellist revolution have been lost. The First Families, the corporations and the Yakuza have a stranglehold on everything. Embarked on a journey of implacable retribution for a lost love, Kovacs is blown off course and into a maelstrom of political intrigue and technological mystery as the ghosts of Harlan's World and his own violent past rise to claim their due. Quellcrist Falconer is back from the dead, they say, and hunting her down for the First Families is a savage young Envoy called Kovacs who's been in storage ...
