8.7 (212人评价)
作者: David Mitchell
出版社: Sceptre
出版年: 2004-3-1
评语:A great palindrome of a novel, Mitchell's third book begins with the unfinished journal of an 18th-century mariner and hops through time, space and genres right up to the distant post-apocalyptic future. Then it hops all the way back down again, resolving each story in turn. These include a camp Ealing-style misadventure, an American thriller and an interview with a clone, all connected by a mysterious comet-shaped tattoo. Cloud Atlas was shortlisted for the Booker prize, but it's a lot more fun than the literary plaudits on the back cover might suggest.

作者: Walter M. Miller Jr.
出版社: EOS
出版年: 2006-5-9
评语:The most influential SF novel of the cold war era, chronicling the rise and fall of human civilisation, Miller's tripartite novel opens ("Fiat Homo") with a post-atomic dark age. Dead Sea scroll-like fragments of Isaac Leibowitz's shopping list have survived, around which a monastery cult forms amid the universal barbarism. The second section ("Fiat Lux") chronicles a new Renaissance of learning, growing out of the Leibowitzian monasteries. Technology emerges. The third section ("Fiat Vountas Tuas") foresees another cataclysmic atomic war terminating civilisation yet again. In an epilogue, a spaceship leaves Earth with a cargo of monks, children and the Leibowitzian relics. The Wandering Jew makes recurrent and enigmatic appearances.

作者: Andrew Miller
出版社: Mariner Books
出版年: 1998-10-1
评语:Miller breathes new life into the Gothic antihero with his beautifully written Impac-winning first novel. "Cold-blooded and apparently indestructible", James Dyer is born into the Enlightenment dawn without the capacity to feel pain; he becomes first freak-show then fearless surgeon, as immune to human compassion as he is to bodily fear. Moving from rural England to Bedlam, Russia's snowbound tundra to the surreal court of Catherine the Great, the novel is at once a glittering tour of medicine and madness, cruelty and art, science and magic; and a delicate fable about how strange we are to one another.

作者: China Mieville
出版社: Del Rey
出版年: 2002-06-25
评语:Miéville was a near-miss for the Granta Best of Young British Novelists list in 2003, but his "weird fiction" transcends genre pigeonholing. The second of his sprawling steampunk fantasies detailing the alternate universe of Bas-Lag follows Armada, a floating pirate city, in its search for a rip in reality. Miéville relishes the magic, the monsters and the limitless possibilities of the genre - from the vast "avanc" towing Armada through uncharted waters to the surgically altered "Remade", plus horrifying mosquito women and underwater ghouls - but his books are also stylishly written, politically engaged, daring and always surprising.

作者: Jed Mercurio
出版社: Trafalgar Square
出版年: 2007-3
评语:Mercurio's first novel, Bodies, which he adapted for TV as Cardiac Arrest, lifted the lid off the NHS; his second makes a stellar leap to relate the adventures of Soviet flying ace turned cosmonaut Yefgenii Yeremin. During the Korean war and then the space programme, Yeremin closes down his emotions even as his horizons expand, from the Arctic skies to the moon itself. The prose is suitably chilly yet strangely beautiful, with Mercurio's technical know-how lending the flight scenes a compulsive believability that lifts the reader, along with Yeremin, to the bounds of space and beyond.

作者: McCarthy, Cormac
出版社: Alfred A. Knopf
出版年: 2006-9-26
评语:McCarthy's most acclaimed novel is a tale from the near-future and a possible foretaste of things to come. In stark, bare-bones prose, it describes a father and son's trudge across a nation devastated by an unspecified environmental calamity - an endless valley of ashes dotted with desperate, deadly survivors. These two figures are pushing south towards the sea, but the sea is poisoned and provides no comfort. In the end, all they have (and, by implication, all the rest of us have) is each other.

作者: Patrick McCabe
出版社: Delta
出版年: 1994-8-1
评语:Francie Brady is a rambunctious kid in 1950s Ireland. He likes his best mate, Joe, and he hates his neighbour, Mrs Nugent, and he's always getting into trouble, and this is mainly because of Mrs Nugent. McCabe leads us on a freewheeling tour of a scattered, shattered consciousness, as Francie grows from wayward child to dangerous adult - nursing his grievances and plotting his revenge. Chances are that old Mrs Nugent has a surprise in store.

作者: Charles Robert Maturin
出版社: Penguin Classics
出版年: 2001-2-1
评语:In Maturin's extravaganza of transgression, beloved by authors from Byron and Balzac to Wilde and HP Lovecraft, the supernatural terrors of the Gothic novel begin to bleed into the psychological dread of Dostoevsky or Kafka. Melmoth ranges the earth, looking for some poor soul to take over the pact he's made with the devil in exchange for extended life, as the narrative zips from London madhouse to Spanish dungeon to deserted Indian island. It's a fascinating mix of wild ideas threatening to run away from the author, and a new realism that takes in poverty, social depredation and very human cruelties.

作者: Richard Matheson
出版社: Orb Books
出版年: 1997-9-15
评语:Robert Neville is the last man standing, the lone survivor in a world overrun by night-crawling vampires. But if history is written by the winners, what does that make Neville: the hero or the monster? Matheson's pacey fantasy charts its protagonist's solitary war against Earth's new inhabitants and his yearning, ongoing search for a fellow survivor. The ending upends the genre's moral assumptions, forcing us to review the tale through different eyes. Clearly this was too much for the recent Will Smith movie adaptation, which ran scared of the very element that makes the book unique.

作者: Michael Marshall Smith
出版社: Spectra
出版年: 2000-9-5
评语:Before his current incarnation as a thriller writer specialising in conspiracy theories and psychopathic gore, Marshall Smith wrote forward-thinking sci-fi which combined high-octane angst with humour both noir and surreal. His debut features a bizarre compartmentalised city with different postcodes for the insane, the overachievers, the debauched or simply those with unusual taste in interior design; as well as adventures in the realm of dreams, a deep love of cats and a killer twist.

作者: Hilary Mantel
出版社: Fourth Estate
出版年: 2010-3-4
评语:Mantel's ninth novel is a beyond-black comedy about seedy, exhausted millennium-era Britain and an obese, traumatised medium called Alison who is cursed with the gift of second sight. Her familiars are the torturers - or projections - of her abusive childhood; they and the other lost souls of the spirit world clamour for Alison's attention as she tries to record her life story. It's a shocking, upsetting, often painful read; but Mantel's rich capacity for amusement and the sheer power of the writing save it from unremitting bleakness.

作者: MacLeod, Ken
出版年: 2009-4
评语:The world has entered the Second Enlightenment after the Faith Wars. In the Republic of Scotland, Detective Inspector Adam Ferguson investigates the murders of religious leaders, suspecting atheists but uncovering a plot involving artificial intelligence. MacLeod's police procedural is a wise indictment of fundamentalism of all kinds and a stark delineation of how belief systems can corrupt, as well as being an incisive character study of a man coming to terms with the brutalities of his past.

作者: David Lindsay
出版社: Bison Books
出版年: 2002-04-01
评语:A Voyage to Arcturus sold only a few hundred copies at the time of its first publication, but has subsequently been recognised as one of the most striking novels of imaginative fiction, Colin Wilson ranking it the "greatest novel of the 20th century". On the surface it tells of Maskull's travels on the planet Tormance, passing through exotic landscapes, finding love, murder and monsters, but through these themes Lindsay explores the meanings and origins of life and the universe.

作者: Doris Lessing
出版社: Vintage
出版年: 1988-4
评语:Set in a near-future in a disintegrating city, where lawlessness prevails and citizens scratch a living from the debris, this dystopia is the journal of an unnamed middle-class narrator who fosters street-kid Emily and observes the decaying world from her window. Despite the pessimistic premise and the description of civilisation on the brink of collapse, with horror lurking at every turn, the novel is an insightful and humane meditation on the survivability of the species.

作者: Stanislaw Lem / Joanna Kilmartin / Steve Cox
出版社: Mariner Books
出版年: 2002-11-20
评语:Popularised by Tarkovsky's masterly film adaptation (and Soderberg's rather more stolid second attempt), Solaris is by far Lem's best-known novel - a humane, intriguing attempt to posit the nature of alien intelligence, and how contact with it might actually play out. Lem's faraway world of Solaris is a sea of psychoactive imagery, making it an effective tool to plumb the contradictions of human consciousness as it reacts to those who would study it. Lem never liked Tarkovsky's treatment of his story: not enough of the science made it to the screen.

作者: J. Le Fanu
出版社: Penguin Classics
出版年: 2001-06-01
评语:This is frequently judged the best ghost story of the Victorian period. On the sudden death of her father, Maud, an heiress, is left to the care of her Uncle Silas, until she comes of age. Sinister in appearance and villainous by nature, Silas first plans to marry Maud to his oafish son, Dudley (who is, it emerges, already married). When this fails, father and son, together with the French governess Madame de la Rougierre, conspire to murder their ward with a spiked hammer. Told by the ingenuous and largely unsuspecting Maud, the narrative builds an impending sense of doom.

作者: Marghanita Laski
评语:A young married woman, Melanie, scours antiques shops to furnish her new home and comes back with an old chaise-longue, which is perfect apart from an unsightly reddish-brown stain. She falls asleep on it and wakes up in an unfamiliar house, an unfamiliar time - and an unfamiliar body. At first she assumes she must be dreaming. But gradually she starts to piece together the story of Milly, the young Victorian woman in the last stages of consumption whom she has apparently become, and the nature of the disgrace she has brought on the household run by her fearsomely stern elder sister. Why does the sight of the doctor make her pulse beat faster? And can she find a way back to her own life? Laski's chilling little novel crackles with a darkly erotic electricity as Mel/Milly confronts the intimate connection between sexual ecstasy and death.

作者: Stephen King
出版社: Penguin
出版年: 1978
评语:The most powerful, and in places interestingly autobiographical, of King's horror stories is based, as are many in the genre, on Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Jack Torrance, a recovering alcoholic and failed schoolteacher, racked with remorse for breaking his son Danny's arm while drunk, takes the position of winter caretaker at the Overlook Hotel in remote Colorado. The hotel is haunted by unexorcised demons from brutal murders committed there years ago. Torrance is possessed and turns, homicidally, on his wife and child. Danny, gifted with telepathic ("shining") power, saves himself and his mother. Jack is beyond salvation. The film was brilliantly filmed by Stanley Kubrick in 1980.

作者: Daniel Keyes
出版社: Mariner Books
出版年: 2004-6-14
评语:Begun as a short story, expanded to a novella, and finally published as a novel, Keyes's science fiction fable has won numerous prizes and been successfully adapted into drama, film, and popular music. The story has two central characters. Algernon is a mouse, whose intelligence is surgically enhanced to the level of rodent genius. The same technique is applied to Charlie Gordon, a mentally subnormal fast-food kitchen hand. The narrative, told by Charlie as his IQ soars, traces the discontents of genius. Alas, the effects of the surgery are shortlived, and the end of the story finds Charlie back in the kitchen - mentally challenged but, in his way, happy. Being smart is not everything.

作者: Franz Kafka
出版社: Schocken
出版年: 1995-3-28
评语:On the morning of his 30th birthday, Josef K is arrested by two sinister men in dapper suits. What for? K doesn't know and can't find out as he is sent on an increasingly absurd wild-goose chase through the labyrinthine sub-faculties of the legal system. A year later, he is executed - "Like a dog!" - for a crime he still cannot name. Incomplete and published posthumously, like all Kafka's three big novels, The Trial captures the essence of moral guilt like no other novel in the 20th century. Watching Orson Welles's film adaptation (with Anthony Perkins as K) is no substitute for experiencing what one critic memorably described as "not the literary presentation of a nightmare, but its literal transcription".
