內容簡介


◎ 時間:經歷數萬年的征戰後,川陀終於建立一統銀河的大帝國。
◎ 背景:川陀人已統治了整個銀河系,地球只是一個被殖民的次等星球。
◎ 主角:史瓦茲,一位二十世紀的退休裁縫師,因受到實驗室外洩出來的輻射衝擊,來到這個陌生的未來地球世界。
◎ 情節:人類的發源地、如今遭到銀河文明遺棄的地球,仍有一群民風強悍、桀驁不馴的劫後餘生者,夢想恢復地球昔日的光榮。史瓦茲這位因聽不懂未來地球語言、看不懂他們文字而被視為精神有問題的人,如何成為拯救銀河帝國的英雄呢?
《蒼穹一粟》是艾西莫夫「銀河帝國系列」的最後一部,當時銀河帝國已建立起來。由於時間距離我們這個時代最遠,因此全書充滿了超現實的儀器、都市結構和社會制度。故事情節緊湊,主線清晰,是一部讓人一旦投入即難以停止的精采科幻小說。
艾氏在書中也充分展露化科學知識於情節、洞察社會體制並以誇張手法表現和諷刺的技巧;此外,艾氏想像力之豐富,能讓你對未來世界的生活充滿了想像。
如果你是艾西莫夫迷,當然不能錯過這個名列艾氏科幻三大經典之一的「銀河帝國系列」的最後一部:《蒼穹一粟》。如果你從未接觸艾氏科幻,這一部短小精悍的科幻,也足以喚起你對科幻的信心與興趣,因為艾西莫夫一向以說故事見長,你根本不會被其中的科學知識所難倒。

One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in 1949 Chicago. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil―so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty.

Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two.
This is young Isaac Asimov's first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation books and novels. It is also one of that select group of SF adventures that since the early 1950s has hooked generations of teenagers on reading science fiction. This is Golden Age SF at its finest.
