Lo spazio esterno e interno hanno misteriose corrispondenze, per questo non si può mandare le astronavi allo sbaraglio senza un minimo di advice (consiglio) e meglio ancora counseling (assistenza specializzata). Per questo sono stati creati i simulacri, perfette copie di luminari che aiuteranno gli equipaggi a superare i conflitti dei viaggi "dove nessuno è mai stato prima". Ma a chi appartengono le personalità dei nuovi androidi-consiglieri? A umoristi come Mark Twain, a poetesse come Emily Dickinson, per alleviare lo stress del viaggio nel vuoto con la saggezza della civiltà. Questo per quanto riguarda i primi modelli: in seguito ci sarà bisogno di ben altro e si capirà che quando le difficoltà dello spazio incalzano, quando si rischia di sfiorare la nevrosi, bisogna richiamare dalla morte il più qualificato di tutti, lo stesso Sigmund Freud. Peccato che qualcuno, a bordo della prossima astronave, lo abbia già ribattezzato dottor "Frode"...

Giant, technologically superior aliens have conquered Earth, but humankind survives - even flourishes in a way. Men and women live, like mice, in burrows in the massive walls of the huge homes of the aliens, and scurry about under their feet, stealing from them. A complex social and religious order has evolved, with women preserving knowledge and working as healers, and men serving as warriors and thieves. For the aliens, men and women are just a nuisance, nothing more than vermin. Which, ironically, may just be humankind's strength and point the way forward.

Take a dazzling journey through time with Tim Power’s classic, Philip K. Dick Award-winning tale... “There have been other novels in the genre about time travel, but none with The Anubis Gates’ unique slant on the material, nor its bottomless well of inventiveness. It’s literally in a class by itself, a model for others to follow, and it's easy to see how it put Powers on the map.”—SF Reviews Brendan Doyle, a specialist in the work of the early-nineteenth century poet William Ashbless, reluctantly accepts an invitation from a millionaire to act as a guide to time-travelling tourists. But while attending a lecture given by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1810, he becomes marooned in Regency London, where dark and dangerous forces know about the gates in time. Caught up in the intrigue between rival bands of beggars, pursued by Egyptian sorcerers, and befriended by Coleridge, Doyle somehow survives and learns more about the mysterious Ashbless than he could ever have imagined possible...

It is the reign of the Emperor Augustus, and Publius Vergilius Maro, the poet of the Aeneid and Caesar's enchanter, has been summoned to the palace, where he will shortly die. Out of the last hours of Virgil's life and the final stirrings of his consciousness, the Austrian writer Hermann Broch fashioned one of the great works of twentieth-century modernism, a book that embraces an entire world and renders it with an immediacy that is at once sensual and profound. Begun while Broch was imprisoned in a German concentration camp, The Death of Virgil is part historical novel and part prose poem -- and always an intensely musical and immensely evocative meditation on the relation between life and death, the ancient and the modern. From the Trade Paperback edition.
