Quarta di copertina


Winner of 2010 Aeon Award by Albedo One Magazine Aethra From the Winner of Aeon Award - Michalis Manolios - an intense and quite disturbing story that starts as an investigation into the murder of an Art Critic to touch issues of human cloning and individual responsibility. Aethra's villa is not only the crime scene, but also the forge where very peculiar "subjects of art" are created, "subjects" in which a sentient copy of Mistress Aethra are entrapped. It is up to commissioner Costas to determine who is the culprit, what really happened in the villa and, most of all, why. The Quantum Mommy A journey into space ends in an unexpected way: the teleportation device that should lead astronaut Armelina to Europe II fails and the woman finds out that she has been "replicated": one remained on planet Earth while the other has reached her destination. Agape, Armelina's daughter, will start this wonderful quantum story with the simple question: "Who is my real mom?" They said about the book: "I never liked science fiction until I read this book. There are no words enough to describe how amazingly touching, achingly accurate each story is! A true masterpiece of Greek literature. Personal favourite: "Aethra". I sincerely hope for an international publication of this book, it is totally worth it!" Sonya Christine (on GoodReads, 20/1/2012) "Michalis Manolios’ science fiction harasses the body and rips the soul apart." Dino Hajiyorgi (on SFF.gr, 29/11/2009) "Manolios' heroes exude a sensation of deep humanitarianism: shrunk, contained, oppressed by an omnipresent -both technologically and scientifically- authority, they keep fighting their minor battles against the control they undergo, and they keep making the right choices in the face of every challenge." Panagiotis Chatzimoisiadis (Avgi, 3/10/2010) The Author: Michalis Manolios (born in 1970) is an engineer. His short stories have appeared in the Greek version of "Asimov's Science Fiction" Magazine and in SF and Comics section "9" of the newspaper "Eleftherotypia", plus other publications in Greece. He lives happily with his family in Athens.
