Die Menschheit ist ins All aufgebrochen. Der Mars wurde besiedelt, der Asteroidengürtel wird ausgebeutet, und virtuelle Spielewelten haben sich zu Paralleluniversen entwickelt. Die Menschheit ist fortschrittlicher, schillernder und kaputter denn je. In dieser Zukunft kommt Boris Chong nach langjähriger Abwesenheit vom Mars zurück auf die Erde zur Central Station - um einen seit Generationen andauernden Familienfluch abzuwenden, um einer alten Liebe wiederzubegegnen, und um vielleicht sein Schicksal zu finden.

Sie haben Perry Rhodan verraten - und Miras-Etrin, der MdI, wartet auf die Stunde seines Triumphes Der Zentraltransmitter von Andromeda wurde durch die von terranischen Wissenschaftlern erzeugte "Antisonne" zerstört - doch die Folgen dieser Aktion waren schwerwiegender als erwartet! Das "Sonneninferno", das dieser Zerstörung folgte, zwang Perry Rhodans Flotte zum Rückzug. Nur Gucky und eine Handvoll Terraner blieben noch im Zentrum Andromedas. Sie nahmen Verbindung mit den Sonneningenieuren auf. Der Mausbiber wollte dafür sorgen, daß die rätselhaften Energiewesen, die für die MdI arbeiteten, ihren Dienst quittierten und zu Verbündeten Terras würden. Das Volk der Sonneningenieure ließ sich jedoch nicht überreden. Die Energiewesen kehrten zu den "großen Müttern" zurück, die ihnen vor Äonen das Leben geschenkt hatten. Das Geheimnis der Sonnentransmitter geht somit für immer verloren. Doch schlimmer noch: Durch die Zerstörung des Zentraltransmitters werden die übrigen Transmitter instabil - und es sieht so aus, als wären Perry Rhodans Streitkräfte in Andromeda vollends von der Heimatgalaxis abgeschnitten... Doch Major Don Redhorse entdeckt den einzigen Weg, der noch offen ist. Er bringt mit seinen Männern einen ehemaligen Weltraumbahnhof der Maahks unter Kontrolle und findet Informationen, auf Grund derer Perry Rhodan das UNTERNEHMEN CENTRAL-STATION einleitet...

In 1913, the Michigan Central Station opened its majestic entrances to the people of Detroit. Designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed & Stern, the firms also noted as the architects of the Grand Central Station in New York City, the depot was a marvel of grandeur and comfort for the traveler lucky enough to utilize its facilities. Soldiers went to war, families both separated and rejoined, and folks looking for an honest living in the Motor City all walked the Michigan Central's elegant corridors. Since the last train pulled away from the station in 1988, the structure has fallen prey to rapidly paced deterioration. Detroit's Michigan Central Station captures the glory of the Michigan Central and its environs. Using photographs from the Burton Historical Collection, as well as private collections, the book illustrates the use of the Michigan Central Station by a city whose story dramatically parallels that of this magnificent structure. The book also includes imagined futures of the station from some of the many people who have been inspired by the magic this grand building continues to exude.

Meet the people who live and work on Australia's most remote cattle stations, from the Kimberley in WA to northern Queensland, as they share their stories in their own words. Have you ever wondered what it's like living hundreds of kilometres from the nearest supermarket? Or having a million-acre backyard, with your next-door neighbours a two-hour drive away? These compelling true-life stories from the popular Central Station blog will open your eyes to what life is really like on an outback property. Forty-seven remote cattle stations take turns to host the blog, ensuring a wide range of voices and experiences. There are yarns from bosses, station cooks, ringers, truckies, single mums, kids, governesses and chopper pilots, told with humour, self-deprecation - and pride in a job well done. There's the wrench of sending a child off to boarding school and the bone-deep weariness of a full day's mustering. There are tales of working dogs, rogue cattle, hard bloody yakka - and kicking back at campdrafts. There's the simple wonder of living in an amazing landscape, but also the downside - the ravages of flood, fire and drought. And always there's the inherent danger of this isolated life - times when the Flying Doctor came to the rescue, but also times when lives have been cut tragically short. A vivid, honest picture of station life with all its joys and hardships.

A rich, illustrated - and entertaining -- history of the iconic Grand Central Terminal, from one of New York City's favorite writers, just in time to celebrate the train station's 100th fabulous anniversary. In the winter of 1913, Grand Central Station was officially opened and immediately became one of the most beautiful and recognizable Manhattan landmarks. In this celebration of the one hundred year old terminal, Sam Roberts of The New York Times looks back at Grand Central's conception, amazing history, and the far-reaching cultural effects of the station that continues to amaze tourists and shuttle busy commuters. Along the way, Roberts will explore how the Manhattan transit hub truly foreshadowed the evolution of suburban expansion in the country, and fostered the nation's westward expansion and growth via the railroad. Featuring quirky anecdotes and behind-the-scenes information, this book will allow readers to peek into the secret and unseen areas of Grand Central -- from the tunnels, to the command center, to the hidden passageways. With stories about everything from the famous movies that have used Grand Central as a location to the celestial ceiling in the main lobby (including its stunning mistake) to the homeless denizens who reside in the building's catacombs, this is a fascinating and, exciting look at a true American institution.
