Hviezdoveda - prvé Slovenské sci-fi, ktoré málokto prečítal - Igor Čonka (blog.sme.sk)

Ak si pod týmto menom predstavíte meno zlosyna z treťotriednej fantasy (v brožovanom vydaní s barbarom a polonahou princeznou na obale), ste veľmi ďaleko od pravdy. Je to hlavná postava prvého Slovenského sci-fi románu. Toto nie je Krutohlav. "Krutohlavom sa volal preto, lebo stále hlavou krútil. Je rodom z Mníšan, silných pliec, udatnej mysle a rozvážneho umu... " Autorom knihy je záhadný Gustáv Reuss, gemerský vzdelanec, ktorý žil v 19. storočí v Revúcej. ...Dr Reuss dal mi rukopis, krátký přehled starožitností, co dílem v Gemerské, Boršod. i Zvolenské stolici sebrali již, a kde by se skoro s jistotou mohly hledat.

Solarpunk

The term solarpunk is generally credited to the user "missolivialouise" on the popular social blogging platform Tumblr in August 2014;[1][2] though it appears to have also been coined by several different people independently in the early 2010s. It is a literary, aesthetic, and artistic subgenre[citation needed] created in the wake of cyberpunk and its other derivatives biopunk and steampunk.[3] In contrast to the other "punk" science fiction genres that it derives from, solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation[4]- as opposed to what are often dystopian narratives found within contemporary science-fiction; to a large extent being a rebellion against widespread pessimism found in SF visions of the future.

Œuvres principales Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Pendant les deux années qui suivirent, il publie plusieurs nouvelles, et en assure la cohérence en les inscrivant dans une Histoire du futur qu'il élabore pour décrire l'histoire de l'humanité de 1950 à 2600.
