Geboren 1969, studierte (erfolglos) Physik, arbeitete anschließend in der Entwicklungshilfe, um sich schließlich als Cowboy auf Serverfarmen zu verdingen. Lebt heute in einer ländlichen Region, die er liebevoll auf den Namen »Hessisch Montana« taufte und die sich - einer alten Indianerlegende nach - nördlich von Marburg
befinden soll. Schreibt seit 2012 phantastische Bücher, mal als Sachbuch, mal als Roman. wofür er zweimal den Deutschen Phantastik Preis erhielt. Denkt sich viele Geschichten aus, manche schreibt er auf (wenn er sie nicht vergisst), manche werden gespielt. Natürlich entsprechen sie alle der Realität. Besonders die über Pinguine und
Neuschwabenland. Die über Steampunk sind allerdings wirklich wahr.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami
“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. Say you’re running and you think, ‘Man, this hurts, I can’t take it anymore. The ‘hurt’ part is an unavoidable reality, but whether or not you can stand anymore is up to the runner himself.”
Haruki Murakami

Warren Ellis
“Did you ever want to set someone's head on fire, just to see what it looked like? Did you ever stand in the street and think to yourself, I could make that nun go blind just by giving her a kiss? Did you ever lay out plans for stitching babies and stray cats into a Perfect New Human? Did you ever stand naked surrounded by people who want your gleaming sperm, squirting frankincense, soma and testosterone from every pore? If so, then you're the bastard who stole my drugs Friday night. And I'll find you. Oh, yes.”
Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 5: Lonely City

Neal Stephenson
“Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world. If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, and devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.”
Neal Stephenson

William Goldman
“When I was your age, television was called books.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Neil Gaiman
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
Neil Gaiman, Season of Mists

Robert Anton Wilson
“...reality is always plural and mutable.”
Robert Anton Wilson, Cosmic Trigger Volume I: Final Secret of the Illuminati

Calla Schau Dir mal Scott Lynchs Autorenprofil an. So Jemand MUSS ja gute Bücher schreiben!
;-)


message 2: by Alex

Alex Jahnke Nein danke euer Ehren. Case closed :-)

Ich bedanke mich mit Jack Finnley "Time and Again"

Tonight is January 21, 1882. There are no such things as automobiles, no planes, computers, television. 'Nuclear' appears in no dictionary. You have never heard the name Richard Nixon."

Did illustrator Si Morley really step out of his twentieth-century apartment one night -- right into the winter of 1882?




message 1: by Calla

Calla Bin Dir auch hier her gefolgt und empfehle sogleich folgendes Buch:

George Mann, "Affinity Bridge".

Warum? 1901, Airships ab Seite 2, Scottland Yard, "anthropologist, with a paticular speciality in the religion and supernatural practices of prehistoric human cultures", zombies, white chapel, amazing industrial progress, gaslight, sèance, London, India...

Muss ich noch mehr sagen?
;-)
