VINNARE AV HUGO AWARD & NEBULA AWARD


En av tidernas 100 mest inflytelserika romaner enligt BBC


Melange är det mest eftertraktade ämnet i universum: en drog som kan förlänga människors liv och berika det med ett multidimensionellt medvetande, det sista en förutsättning för navigering under interstellära rymdresor. Melange finns bara på den karga ökenplaneten Arrakis.

När kejsaren tar ifrån adelsfamiljen Harkonnen vasallskapet för att i stället ge planeten i förläning till familjen Atreides slår Harkonnen tillbaka och mördar fursten Leto Atreides. Sonen Paul flyr ut i öknen med sin mor lady Jessica och de räddas från att törsta ihjäl av Arrakis ursprungsfolk. Paul måste vinna arrakisfolkets tillit innan han kan leda upproret mot familjen Harkonnen.

Berättelsen om kampen om herraväldet över Arrakis är en storslagen och oavbrutet fängslande historia om makthunger, religion, svek, teknologisk övertro och begränsade naturtillgångar. I svensk översättning av Gabriel Setterborg.


FRANK HERBERT [1920-1986] var en amerikansk science fiction-författare som publicerade sina första noveller på 1950-talet. Dune, som utkom 1965, betraktas allmänt som en av de främsta romanerna någonsin i genren. Den belönades med både The Hugo Award och The Nebula Award. Vintern2020 har den nya, stort påkostade filmatiseringen av Dune premiär, i regi av Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario).


»Kraftfull, övertygande, genialisk.« Robert A. Heinlein


»Lika fängslande i sin handling som i sina filosofiska vyer. Ett häpnadsväckande science fiction-fenomen.« Washington Post


»Dune är unik. Jag kan inte komma på något annat att jämföra den med än Sagan om ringen.« Arthur C. Clarke

Förebygg och hantera kriser inom anestesiologi

Anestesiologi är en bred specialitet: kollegor som är anställda vid samma klinik kan huvudsakligen vara involverade i allt från ambulanssjukvård till intensivvård, och extrakorporal livsuppehållande behandling till smärtmedicin.

Denna text är avsedd att ge narkosläkare och annan narkospersonal en överblick över de icke-tekniska färdigheter och kunskaper som vi alla i allmänhet förväntas kunna aktivera med mycket kort varsel. Den passar som uppfräschning för specialister, som förberedelse inför teamträning samt som handbok till vardags.

Emma Stone (LA LA LAND) stars in Disney's CRUELLA, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinema's most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Set during the 1970s punk rock revolution in London, the story follows a clever and creative young grifter named Estella, who is determined to become a successful designer. After Estella befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, the three build a life for themselves on the London streets. Before long, Estella's flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute fashion legend, played by Emma Thompson (HOWARDS END, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent "Cruella." CRUELLA is directed by Craig Gillespie (I, TONYA) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. It was produced by Andrew Gunn (FREAKY FRIDAY), Marc Platt (MARY POPPINS RETURNS) and Kristin Burr (CHRISTOPHER ROBIN), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Spectacular costume designer Jenny Beavan (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, A ROOM WITH A VIEW) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own. WARNING: Some flashing lights scenes in this film may affect photosensitive viewers.

One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you'll achieve extraordinary results.

Deep Work is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.

'Cal Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors' New York Times

'Deep work' is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. Coined by author and professor Cal Newport on his popular blog Study Hacks, deep work will make you better at what you do, let you achieve more in less time and provide the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill. In short, deep work is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive economy.

And yet most people, whether knowledge workers in noisy open-plan offices or creatives struggling to sharpen their vision, have lost the ability to go deep - spending their days instead in a frantic blur of email and social media, not even realising there's a better way.

A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, DEEP WORK takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories -- from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air -- and surprising suggestions, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored.

Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions you can make in an increasingly distracted world and this book will point the way.
For as long as she can remember, Ember Maxwell’s life hasn’t been her own. A world-renowned influencer, she’s a brand unto herself, created by her parents—who also want Olympic glory for their only daughter. Years of grueling training have led to Seoul, Korea, and a spot on the modern pentathlon team. It’s a turning point for Ember in more ways than one. Chafing against her parents’ tight reins, she opts to stay in the Olympic Village, a decision that leads to a gravely harrowing event…and a man unlike any she’s ever met.

Craig “Doc” Wagner has actively avoided the spotlight since childhood, a trend that’s continued with his career as a Delta Force soldier. Falling for someone whose entire life is splashed on social media is possibly the worst idea ever, though his attraction to Ember won’t be denied. It’s not long before he discovers they have plenty in common where it really matters…but he lives in Texas, and her life is in California. So Doc will take every stolen moment they can get.

When Ember makes a few life-changing decisions, Doc is thrilled. The same can’t be said for some of her biggest fans, including one who sees Ember’s new direction as the ultimate betrayal…that should cost her the ultimate price.

** Shielding Ember is the 7th book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
