Stimmen in der Nacht

Publisher: Septime Verlag
ISBN: 3903061603

Page: 384

Steven Millhauser ist zweifellos einer der größten Geschichtenerzähler unserer Zeit. In seinem neuesten Storyband Stimmen in der Nacht ergründet er das geheime Leben und die dunklen Sehnsüchte der Bewohner einer Kleinstadt. Mit Referenzen auf Fabeln, Mythen und die Bibel, durchtränkt von subtilem, meisterlichem Humor, verwebt er in sechzehn Erzählungen das Alltägliche mit dem Überraschenden, bekannte Fakten mit berauschenden Fantasien und beschwört so einen schillernden Chor aus Nachtstimmen, der im dunkelsten Winkel unseres Inneren noch lange nachhallt. "Wunderpolitur" etwa ist eine beißende Satire auf die Verlockung der Perfektion, in der sich der vom Leben enttäuschte Protagonist in einen modernen Narziss verwandelt, bis sich sein Wahn überraschend entlädt. In "Meerjungfrauenfieber" wird eine angespülte Meerjungfrau zum willkommenen Ventil für die kollektive Rastlosigkeit, die unter der perfekten Oberfläche einer Kleinstadt brodelt. Der sensationelle Fund weckt Neugier, Hysterie, bizarre Modetrends und macht nicht einmal vor den Schlafzimmern halt. In der titelgebenden Erzählung "Eine Stimme in der Nacht" entfaltet Millhauser wiederum über die alttestamentarische Geschichte des Propheten Samuel ein kunstvolles, dreitausend Jahre umspannendes Triptychon, das der Frage nachgeht, was es bedeutet, auserwählt zu sein und in der Nacht eine Stimme zu hören – und was es bedeutet, sie nicht zu hören.


Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush

The music of Rush, one of the most successful bands in music history, is filled with fantastic stories, evocative images, thought-provoking futures and pasts. In this anthology, notable, bestselling, and award-winning writers each chose a Rush song as the spark for a new story, drawing inspiration from the visionary trio Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. From stark dystopian struggles to uplifting triumphs of the human spirit, the characters populating 2113 find strength while searching for hope in a world that is repressive, dangerous, or just debilitatingly bland. Most of these tales are science fiction, but some are fantasies, thrillers, even edgy mainstream. Many of Rush's big hits are represented, as well as deeper cuts . . . with wonderful results. This anthology also includes the seminal stories that inspired the Rush classics "Red Barchetta" and "Roll the Bones," as well as Kevin J. Anderson's novella sequel to the groundbreaking Rush album 2112. 2113 contains stories by New York Times bestselling authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Z. Williamson, David Alan Mack, David Farland, Dayton Ward, and Mercedes Lackey; award winners Fritz Leiber, John McFetridge, Steven Savile, Brad R. Torgersen, Ron Collins, David Niall Wilson, and Brian Hodge, as well as many other authors with their imaginations on fire.
