By 2185, research into genetics has made artificial humanoids easy to produce. The Android Complex in Denver has manufactured the most successful lot, the 900 Series. They are far more intelligent and resourceful than any of the previous series-enough so that they're able to escape from the complex, travel to Mars, and disappear into human society. Robert, a human member of the media on Mars, is kidnapped by a female android to aid her on a dangerous mission: a return to Earth to find and rescue the aging Dr. Ford, the creator of the 900 Series. Their quest leads Robert into a world he never even imagined, one where the old rules of space and time no longer apply.

The technical advances in filmmaking technology have enabled a new sophistication in visual effects. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction Cinema contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 400 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, films, companies, techniques, themes, and subgenres. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about science fiction cinema.
In this sequel to the Rise of the Human Androids, lizard like aliens called the Sharptors have perfected high-energy shields for hyperspace travel and begun exploring the galaxy. Meanwhile, James decides to not run for re-election for President of Mars. He plans instead to search the galaxy for old ones technology in a heavy cruiser with a supergun named after his wife. His wife and two children will join him on this journey. Susan, Mars' Secretary of State and former President of the U.S. will run for James' spot and James' adopted human android daughter Martha will run for vice-president. James' actions are motivated by the re-emergence of Ergone as the Marshall of the powerful and independent Altararian military. James knows Ergone wants to avenge his loss to Mars and Earth in their last war. James fears the Altararians with their vastly superior forces will crush Mars if he can't find advanced technology to stop them. In a chance meeting, James encounters the Sharptors while looking at a promising planet for exploration. A fight breaks out. James wins the encounter but the Sharptor warship escapes. Still, a plan begins to emerge in James' mind of how to use the aggressive new aliens against the Altararians. Meanwhile James and his associates explore an old ones site on their promising new earth like world Sisney 1. They must battle a super aggressive mammal the Ratang and insect the Botos, which have stripped Sisney 1 of almost all of its land animal life as they explore the site. They find new technology at the site, which they plan to use against the Altararians. Meanwhile a secret organization called the Committee, which has controlled many economic events on Earth, finds it difficult to control Mars and its allied planets. As a result, to make themselves relevant in the changing world around them, they join with bigoted groups on Mars and Ganymede and in a secret deal with the Altararians to sabotage Mars efforts to arm itself against the expected Altararian
The mid twenty first century saw Earth succumb to a phenomenon that can only be described as Venus fever. An amazing discovery on that far distant planet had had the effect of unleashing a frantic race to be the first to get to Venus, to be the very first in establishing the presence of intelligent beings on the planet's surface and to be the first to exploit the natural resources of the world many described as Earth's sister planet.
Not everyone was eager to share the planet Earth with the Zentraedi survivors of the First Robotech War. There was little prospect of a lasting peace, as the tensions in the Southlands gave rise to two opposing forces, and each vowed to fight until the other was eradicated. Caught beween the two rivals was the Robotech Defense Force. Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Max and Miriya Sterling, Breetai, and others who would all have their parts to play in the period that came to be called the Malcontent Uprisings....
To the Empire, Owen Deathstalker is an Outlaw. To the inhuman Hadenmen, he is the Redeemer. And to the underground, he is humanity’s last hope. Above all else, he is the last of a legendary warrior clan who is determined to bring down an Empire rotted by corruption, greed, and institutionalized slavery. Owen will fire the first shot by breaching Golgotha, the heavily guarded home planet of the Empress and the location of her overflowing coffers. Besides enraging and embarrassing the Iron Bitch (one of the few perks of leading the revolution), robbing the Empire will help to fund the rebellion and garner support from the public. But starting a revolution is one thing. To win it, Owen and his companions will have to convince key planets to join the fight. Scattered across the galaxy, Owen’s band of misfits struggle to embrace their new roles as leaders while facing espionage, treachery, and the unexpected challenges of making their rebellion a reality. Deathstalker: Rebellion is the second book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
This book applies the concepts and methods of psychoanalysis to the study of artificial intelligence (AI) and human–AI interaction. It develops a new, more fruitful approach for applying psychoanalysis to AI and machine behavior. It appeals to a broad range of scholars: philosophers working on psychoanalysis, technology, AI ethics, and cognitive sciences, psychoanalysts, psychologists, and computer scientists. The book is divided into four parts. The first part (Chapter 1) analyzes the concept of "machine behavior." The second part (Chapter 2) develops a reinterpretation of some fundamental Freudian and Lacanian concepts through Bruno Latour’s actor-network theory. The third part (Chapters 3 and 4) focuses on the nature and structure of the algorithmic unconscious. The author claims that the unconscious roots of AI lie in a form of projective identification, i.e., an emotional and imaginative exchange between humans and machines. In the fourth part of the book (Chapter 5), the author advances the thesis that neuropsychoanalysis and the affective neurosciences can provide a new paradigm for research on artificial general intelligence. The Algorithmic Unconscious explores a completely new approach to AI, which can also be defined as a form of "therapy." Analyzing the projective identification processes that take place in groups of professional programmers and designers, as well as the "hidden" features of AI (errors, noise information, biases, etc.), represents an important tool to enable a healthy and positive relationship between humans and AI. Psychoanalysis is used as a critical space for reflection, innovation, and progress.
This groundbreaking volume maps the shifting place and function of marvelous transformations from antiquity to the present day. Shape-shifting, taking animal bodies, miracles, transubstantiation, alchemy, and mutation recur and echo throughout ancient and modern writing and thinking and continue in science fiction today as tales of gene-splicing and hybridisation. The idea of metamorphosis lies in uneasy coexistence with orderly world views and it is often cast out, or attributed to enemies. Augustine and the church fathers consider shape-shifting ungodly; Enlightenment thinkers suppress alchemy as unscientific; genetically-modified wheat and stem-cell research are stigmatised as unnatural. Yet the very possibility of radical transformation inspires hope just as it frightens. A provocative, theorising, trans-historical history, this book ranges across classics, literature, history, philosophy, theology and anthropology. From Homer and Ovid to Proust and H. P. Lovecraft and through figures from Proteus to Kafka's Fly and toSpiderman, four historical surveys are combined with nine case studies to show the malleable, yet persistent, presence of transformation throughout Western cultural history.

If science fiction stages the battle between humans and non-humans, whether alien or machine, who is elected to fight for us? In the classics of science fiction cinema, humanity is nearly always represented by a male, and until recently, a white male. Spanning landmark American films from Blade Runner to Avatar, this major new study offers the first ever analysis of masculinity in science fiction cinema. It uncovers the evolution of masculine heroes from the 1980s until the present day, and the roles played by their feminine counterparts. Considering gender alongside racial and class politics, Masculinity in Contemporary Science Fiction Cinema also situates filmic examples within the broader culture. It is indispensable for understanding science fiction and its role in contemporary cultural politics.

As professoras Leila Assumpção Harris e Maria Aparecida Andrade Salgueiro estão mais uma vez à frente de uma das iniciativas mais bem sucedidas destes 30 anos de existência do Programa de Pós-graduação em Letras stricto sensu da Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro: a coleção Escritos discentes em literaturas de língua inglesa. Chegando agora ao seu décimo volume, a coleção consolidou-se, definitivamente, como um meio privilegiado de divulgação das pesquisas realizadas pelos mestrandos e doutorandos da especialidade de Literaturas de Língua Inglesa, cuja pujança é atestada tanto pela qualidade quanto pela diversidade dos temas recobertos pelos trabalhos aqui reunidos. A história da série teve início com uma exitosa atividade acadêmica, cultivada por anos pela especialidade, a dos seminários internos, em que os alunos apresentavam o andamento de seus estudos e eram beneficiados pelos comentários, críticas e sugestões de professores e colegas. Tão bem sucedida foi a prática dos simpósios que ultrapassou os limites da especialidade, e permanece viva, hoje, nos Seminários anuais dos alunos, no âmbito geral do PPG-Letras. Na condição de coordenador atual do Programa, não posso deixar ainda de saudar a publicação de mais um volume da série, uma vez que ela contempla um dos quesitos de avaliação mais valorizados pela CAPES – a produção bibliográfica de mestrandos e doutorandos. Louva-se, nesse sentido, não apenas a publicação do livro em si, mas seu processo de elaboração: os capítulos, supervisionados pelos orientadores, valem também como um precioso exercício de escrita de futuros artigos, destinados aos veículos especializados da área. Resta-nos, pois, apenas desejar uma longa vida à série Escritos discentes em Literaturas de Língua Inglesa. Júlio França Coordenador Geral Pós-Graduação em Letras da Uerj
"Aside from its perfect fit of critic and subject, Laurence A. Rickels's book provides the most thorough and exhaustive reading of Philip K. Dick's literary work that exists. He goes through all the novels literally, both the science fiction works and the so-called mainstream novels Dick did not publish in his lifetime. The reader of science fiction should welcome a book like this, which is both knowledgeable of the SF tradition tradition and creatively analytical. I could not put this book down once I began to read it".---George Slusser, University of California, Riverside --
