Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard

Original Title: Battlefield Earth

In the year A.D. 3000, Earth is a dystopian wasteland, plundered of its natural resources by alien conquerors known as Psychlos. Fewer than thirty-five thousand humans survive in a handful of communities scattered across the face of a post-apocalyptic Earth. From the ashes of humanity rises a young hero, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. Setting off on an initial quest to discover a hidden evil, Jonnie unlocks the mystery of humanity’s demise and unearths a crucial weakness in their oppressors. Spreading the seeds of revolt, Jonnie and a small band of survivors pit their quest for freedom in an all-out rebellion that erupts across the continents of Earth and the cosmic sprawl of the Psychlo empire. For the fate of the Galaxy lies on the Battlefield of Earth. “Over 1,000 pages of thrills, spills, vicious aliens and noble humans.

Scientology by Linus Hauser

Original Title: Scientology

Die Ideologie, die Scientology zugrunde liegt - hier wird sie entlarvt! Jeder meint zu wissen, worum es bei Scientology geht. Doch es gibt kaum etwas Geheimnisvolleres als dieses weltumspannende Imperium. Handelt es sich um eine Kirche, eine Sekte oder doch um ein bedrohliches Netzwerk, dessen Intentionen nichts weniger als verbrecherisch sind? Das Spektrum im Urteil über Scientology ist groß: In manchen Ländern wie der Schweiz genießt sie den Status einer Kirche mit allen sich daraus ergebenden Vorteilen, während sie in anderen - etwa in Deutschland - sogar unter Beobachtung durch den Verfassungsschutz steht. Mittlerweile verfügt die Scientology-Organisation über ein weltumspannendes Netzwerk. Zahlreiche Stars und Sternchen, vor allem aus der Glitzerwelt Hollywoods, sind bekennende Anhänger und stehen in der Hierarchie der Organisation an exponierter, geradezu werbender Stelle. Filme über Scientology finden ein Millionenpublikum. Wer sich selbst ein Urteil bilden möchte, was die ideologische Basis von Scientology ausmacht, muss zur Geburt des Imperiums zurück und sich mit der Entwicklung des Gedankengebäudes ihres Gründers Ronald Hubbard beschäftigen, der die Organisation über Jahrzehnte diktatorisch regiert und geformt hat. Linus Hauser ist diesen Spuren detektivisch nachgegangen und legt die weltanschauliche Basis offen, auf der das Imperium fußt.

Otherspace Storm Warning An Official Otherspace Chronicle by Wes Platt

Original Title: Otherspace Storm Warning An Official Otherspace Chronicle

For millennia, the Kamir and their creation, the Il'Ri'Kamm Hive Mind, have warred against each other and their allies. Now, in the 31st Century, the crew of the VES Minerva are charged with the mission of bearing a small boy to a desolate, deadly world where the two ancient races will face each other in a final showdown. If the Minerva succeeds, the two races will annihilate each other and OtherSpace faster-than-light drives will cease functioning. If the Minerva fails, corporeal life will be destroyed. OtherSpace: Storm Warning is a snapshot of the shared epic that has been told online in real-time since 1998, by participants from around the world. The universe and several key characters are the creation of Wes Platt, but the characters of participants help flesh out and spark critical events that shape the history of the text-based improvisational storytelling environment.

The Orgasms Of History by

Original Title: The Orgasms Of History

Every now and then, things explode. Riots, uprisings, revolutions, new and bizarre social groups spring up seemingly from nowhere. Our standard histories tend to treat these as oddities, if treated at all, or as misguided responses to hard times, limited by lack of responsible leadership. Here's a People's History to puncture that balloon. From the Cynics & Spartacus through the Levelers, Diggers & Ranters to the Revolution of the Carnation, the San Francisco Diggers, Red Guard of Shenwulian, Brethren of the Free Spirit, Guevara, the Provos & the Metropolitan Indians. Nearly 100 episodes of revolt and utopia which popped up without a plan or a leader from the ancient Greeks to the present. Fremion lives in Paris where he participated in the May '68 orgasm.
