The award-winning original teleplay that produced the most beloved episode of the classic Star Trek series—with an introductory essay by the author. USS Enterprise Starfleet officers Capt. James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock escort a renegade criminal to a nearby planet for capital punishment, and they discover the remains of a city. This ancient civilization is inhabited by the alien Guardians of Forever, who are tasked with protecting a time machine. When the criminal escapes through the portal into the past, he alters Earth’s timeline, damaging humanity’s future role among the stars. Pursuing their prisoner, Kirk and Spock are transported to 1930s Depression-era New York City—where they meet pacifist Edith Koestler, a woman whose fate is entwined with the aftermath of the most devastating war in human history. A woman whom Kirk has grown to love—and has to sacrifice to restore order to the universe. In its original form, The City on the Edge of Forever won the Writers Guild of America Award for best teleplay. As aired, it won the Hugo Award. But as Harlan Ellison recounts in his expanded introductory essay, “Perils of the ‘City,’” the televised episode was a rewrite of his creative vision perpetrated by Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the show’s producers. In his trademark visceral, no-holds-barred style, the legendary author broke a thirty-year silence to set the record straight about the mythologized controversy surrounding the celebrated episode, revealing what occurred behind-the-scenes during the production. Presented here as Ellison originally intended it to be filmed, this published teleplay of The City on the Edge of Forever remains a masterpiece of speculative fiction, and a prime example of his uncanny ability to present humanity with all its virtues and faults.

White Wolf Publishing presents, for the first time in unlimited edition trade paperback, the unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison's award-winning Star Trek script, The City on the Edge of Forever - the spark that incited Ellison's vehement and long-lived feud with late TV producer Gene Roddenberry! The City on the Edge of Forever is, at its most basic, a poignant love story. Ellison takes the reader on a breathtaking trip through space and time, from the future, all the way back to 1930s America. In this harrowing journey, Kirk and Spock race to apprehend a renegade criminal and restore the order of the universe. It is here that Kirk faces his ultimate dilemma: a choice between the universe - or his one true love. White Wolf's Borealis Legends imprint makes available this astonishing teleplay as Ellison intended it to be aired. The author's introductory essay (expanded by 15,000 words from the limited edition) reveals all of the details of what Ellison describes as a "fatally inept treatment" of his creative work. Was he unjustly edited, unjustly accused, and unjustly treated?

Ein eleganter Pageturner um ein Gemälde aus dem 17. Jahrhundert Sara de Vos ist 1631 die erste Malerin, die in die Meistergilde in Amsterdam aufgenommen wird. Dreihundert Jahre später ist nur ein einziges ihrer Gemälde erhalten geblieben. Das Bild hängt über dem Bett eines reichen, etwas ruhelosen New Yorker Anwalts. Ohne böse Absichten kopiert eine junge Australierin das Bild. Doch die Kopie wird in Umlauf gebracht, mit erschütternden Konsequenzen. Jahrzehnte später treffen die beiden Bilder, die Fälscherin und der Anwalt noch einmal aufeinander ... „Wie der Autor drei Zeitläufte und Städte verbindet ist so brillant wie fesselnd.“ The Washington Post „Smiths Roman erinnert uns daran, dass die Wahrheiten, denen wir vertrauen, wertvoll bleiben, auch wenn sie ungenau sind.“ The Chicago Tribune „Ein Roman über Liebe und Sehnsucht, über Authentizität und ethische Grauzonen, vor allem aber über die Malerei als ein Weg, Trauer in Schönheit zu verwandeln.“ Lauren Groff, Autorin von „Licht und Zorn“ „Hinreißende Erzählkunst. Mit einer fast greifbaren Kenntnis der vielen Verästellungen des menschlichen Herzens. Dieser Roman hält Sie nachts wach, anfangs, weil Sie unbedingt weiterlesen wollen, dann weil Sie bewusst langsamer lesen, um das Ende hinauszuzögern.“ The Boston Globe

Von Garth Risk Hallberg - der neuen Stimme der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur – der große, überwältigende Roman über New York City New York City, Neujahrsabend 1977. Ein Schneesturm zieht über die Stadt, Feuerwerk erleuchtet den Himmel und im Central Park fallen Schüsse. Die Ereignisse der Nacht bringen eine Gruppe unvergesslicher Figuren zusammen: Die schwerreichen Erben William und Regan Hamilton-Sweeney, Mercer, der am großen amerikanischen Roman schreibt, die Punk-Kids Sam und Charlie aus der Vorstadt, den besessenen Magazin-Reporter Richard und den Cop Larry. Sie alle leben und lieben hier, in der großen Stadt, die bankrott und gefährlich ist und zugleich vor Energie platzt. Als dann am 13. Juli 1977 die Lichter ausgehen, gerät New York City in den Ausnahmezustand – und nach dem Stromausfall ist kein Leben wie zuvor. Ein großer Roman über Liebe, Betrug und Vergebung, über Kunst, Wahrheit und Rock’n’Roll mitten in New York City - kunstvoll, überbordend, außergewöhnlich.
