Da Literatura: ATÉ QUE ENFIM | Falling into Infinity | Scoop.it

Finalmente, Genius (2002), de Harold Bloom, chegou à edição portuguesa. No Brasil foi publicado em 2003, em tradução de José Roberto O’Shea. Em Portugal, essa tarefa coube a Cristina Rodriguez e Artur Guerra, que sucedem a Miguel Tamen, Manuel Frias Martins e Miguel Serras Pereira na tradução de obras de Bloom. No lote dos “cem autores mais criativos da história da literatura”, há três portugueses  —  Camões, Eça e Pessoa. E um quarto autor de língua portuguesa, o brasileiro Machado de Assis. Novecentas páginas de provocação e heterodoxia. Indispensável. Génio foi editado por Temas e Debates & Círculo de Leitores.

Four Stories: “The Preserving Machine” by Philip K. Dick | Adam Mills

Four Stories: “The Preserving Machine” by Philip K. Dick | Adam Mills | Falling into Infinity | Scoop.it

The narrative of Philip K. Dick’s “The Preserving Machine” is conventional in structure, straightforward even, and deceptively so for a work of what is ultimately high quality weird science fiction. Dick’s writing is deft and wastes no time in getting straight to Doc Labyrinth and the initial mention of his titular Machine. By the end of the second paragraph, we get the nameless narrator speaking to Doc Labyrinth, asking what is essentially the propelling question for this entire story: “Then the Machine did work the way you expected?” This, of course, begs the question of what the machine does, and what it does is rather strange indeed.
