9780091949792: The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day: 4
Reseña del editor:

The fourth book in the Science of Discworld series, and this time around dealing with THE REALLY BIG QUESTIONS, Terry Pratchett’s brilliant new Discworld story Judgement Day is annotated with very big footnotes (the interleaving chapters) by mathematician Ian Stewart and biologist Jack Cohen, to bring you a mind-mangling combination of fiction, cutting-edge science and philosophy.

Marjorie Daw is a librarian, and takes her job – and indeed the truth of words – very seriously. She doesn’t know it, but her world and ours – Roundworld – is in big trouble. On Discworld, a colossal row is brewing…

The Wizards of Unseen University feel responsible for Roundworld (as one would for a pet gerbil). After all, they brought it into existence by bungling an experiment in Quantum ThaumoDynamics. But legal action is being brought against them by Omnians, who say that the Wizards’ god-like actions make a mockery of their noble religion.

As the finest legal brains in Discworld (a zombie and a priest) gird their loins to do battle – and when the Great Big Thing in the High Energy Magic Laboratory is switched on – Marjorie Daw finds herself thrown across the multiverse and right in the middle of the whole explosive affair.

As God, the Universe and, frankly, Everything Else is investigated by the trio, you can expect world-bearing elephants, quantum gravity in the Escher-verse, evolutionary design, eternal inflation, dark matter, disbelief systems – and an in-depth study of how to invent a better mousetrap.

Contraportada:

‘Ladies and gentlemen,’ began his Lordship, ‘I cannot conceive of a more interesting case than the one we have today.

‘The dispute is over a mere artefact: shiny, I grant you, attractive in its way; and I am given to believe by the wizards and natural scientists of Unseen University and elsewhere that reasonably small though it be, it is in fact larger by many orders of magnitude than all of Discworld.

‘I intend to seek evidence of this during the deliberations of this very unusual tribunal, which has been brought into being because there are two parties that both profess to believe that the artefact is theirs.’

Lord Vetinari sighed, and said, ‘I rather fear the term “quantum” will make an appearance, but these are after all, modern times.’

Descripción Ebury Publishing Apr 2013, 2013. Buch. Estado de conservación: Neu. 238x160x31 mm. Neuware - Terry Pratchett, geboren 1948, fand im zarten Alter von 13 Jahren den ersten Käufer für eine seiner Geschichten. Der kleine Mann mit dem großen schwarzen Schlapphut zählte zu den erfolgreichsten Autoren Großbritanniens und ist einer der populärsten Fantasy-Autoren der Welt. Seit 1983 schrieb er Scheibenwelt-Romane. Er war zweifellos der Autor mit dem skurrilsten ehemaligen Beruf: Terry Pratchett war jahrelang Pressesprecher für fünf Atomkraftwerke beim Central Electricity Generating Board. Nach eigener Auskunft hatte er nur deshalb noch kein Buch darüber geschrieben, weil es ihm ja doch keiner glauben würde. Seinen Sinn für Realsatire hat der schrille Job jedenfalls geschärft. Von seinen Scheibenwelt-Romanen wurden weltweit rund 75 Millionen Exemplare verkauft, seine Werke sind in 37 Sprachen übersetzt. Für seine Verdienste um die englische Literatur wurde ihm sogar die Ritterwürde verliehen. Umgeben von den modernsten Computern (und so durch ein Stück Schnur mit dem Rest der Welt verbunden) lebte Terry Pratchett mit seiner Frau Lyn bis zu seinem Tode 2015 in der englischen Grafschaft Wiltshire. 352 pp. Englisch.
