Big Brother im 21. Jahrhundert Der Überwachungsstaat in der Literatur (mp3)
SWR: "Der Überwachungsstaat wird in literarischen Klassikern meist im Zusammenhang mit einer übermächtigen politischen Diktatur beschrieben. Heute funktionieren die Mechanismen der Kontrolle subtil und sogar freiwillig. Was auch die aktuelle Literatur spiegelt." Weiter

Edgar Allan Poe geht auf‘s Standesamt (mp3)
BR: "Edgar Allan Poe hoffte natürlich mehr auf gute als auf schlechte Zeiten, als er am 22. September 1835 auf´s Standesamt ging - um die sehr, sehr junge Virginia zu heiraten. Doch viel zu bald schon krächzte der Rabe: Nimmermehr."

Peter Pan und sein Erfinder (mp3)
SWR2: "Bis heute hat dieser Klassiker der Jugendliteratur nichts an Strahlkraft eingebüßt.. Erfinder der Geschichte war der Schotte James Matthew Barrie - ein nur 1,52 Meter großer, vom englischen Königshaus geadelter Journalist, Theaterautor und Schriftsteller. Wie das Leben seiner Fantasiefigur Peter Pan war auch seines durchdrungen von Tragik, ungestillter Sehnsucht und Einsamkeit."

Postapokalypse in Serien: Noch nie war so viel Weltuntergang wie heute (mp3)
dradio: "Das Genre des Endzeit-Films gibt es schon lange. Aber jetzt erscheinen immer mehr Fernsehserien, die sich mit der Frage beschäftigen, wie Menschen nach einer Katastrophe leben oder leben würden. Die Frage, wie es zum Untergang kam, wird gar nicht erst gestellt - denn es ist klar: Die Probleme haben wir selbst verursacht." Weiter

Physik-Fiction ist nicht genug
"Warum wir unser Bild von Science-Fiction unbedingt erweitern sollten – Eine Kolumne von Adam Roberts"

Her & Black Mirror: Maschinenliebe, die nächste Stufe
spex.de: "In Spike Jonzes Her, just auf DVD erschienen, verliebt sich Joaquin Phoenix in sein Betriebssystem. In der britischen TV-Serie Black Mirror heißt es dagegen, etwas weniger romantisch: The future is broken. Zwischen Hoffnung und Angst lernen wir: Nur weil etwas simuliert ist, muss es noch lange nicht unecht sein."

Jeff VanderMeers Roman-Highlight Auslöschung
Jeff VanderMeer ist nicht nur einer der wichtigsten Herausgeber der englischsprachigen Fantastik-Gegenwart. Er ist außerdem einer dieser amerikanischen Autoren, die so außergewöhnlich und dabei so versiert und hervorragend sind, dass sie hierzulande eigentlich keine Chance auf dem Markt haben, völlig egal, wie gut ihr Standing innerhalb der Szene ist oder wie viele Awards sie ihm Regal stehen haben."

fontmagazine.org: "Although not actually banned, Saudia Arabia’s first science fiction novel H W J N, more easily pronounced as ‘Hawjan’, is causing problems for its creator. Official unease about its contents have meant that the religious police have been confiscating copies from a number of bookshops in the country despite it being a bestseller there.

Written by Ibraheem Abbas, and translated from Arabic to English by Yasser Bahjatt (co-founders of Yatakhayaloon, aka The League of Arabic SciFiers), the novel is less science fiction and more science fantasy, dealing as it does with a modernday jinn who finds himself falling in love with a human and joins battle against demons and sorcerers on her behalf." Rad on

Hawjan is available at no cost at amazon.de or amazon.com as a kindle ebook

Der Humanistische Pressedienst stellt TV Serien vor:

Battlestar Galactica - Was ist ein Mensch?
hpd.de: "Battlestar Galactica erscheint auf den ersten Blick sehr religiös, besonders für eine Science-Fiction-Show. Manche Kritiker warfen den Machern einen zu beschönigenden Blick auf die Irrationalität des Glaubens sowie peinliche Eso-Verherrlichung vor. Das greift jedoch viel zu kurz, denn der “Glaube” ist in der Serie nur ein strukturierendes Werkzeug, die organisierte Religiosität wird überdeutlich kritisiert und Spiritualität als Gesamtes in Frage gestellt."

Just saw the the trailer for Luc Besson's upcoming movie Lucy. Reminded me of Ted Chiang's novellete Understand.

Understand:
"The story follows a man who is given an experimental drug to heal brain damage caused by anoxia after he nearly drowns. The drug regenerates his damaged neurons and has the unintended side effect of exponentially improving his intellect and motor skills. As he gets smarter and smarter, he is pursued by several government agencies and eventually receives a message from—and then enters into conflict with—another super-intelligent test subject."

Lucy:
Lucy is a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, which allows her to use more than the normal 10% of her brain's capacity, thus changing her into a superhuman. As a result, she can absorb information instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and can choose not to feel pain or other discomforts.

An audio version of Understand can be found at archive.org

Lucy is based on the humans only make use of 10% their brains nonsens.

"From Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to George Orwell’s 1984 to Spike Jonze’s Oscar-winning Her, artists have imagined what the future will look like.

BBC: "Beneath the calm surface of British politics, lurking in the imaginations of some of our leading writers, terrible things have happened. Professor Steven Fielding examines these dystopian visions which have gripped creative and public imaginations in novels and dramas since the end of the second world war.

Some of these stories have left a lasting legacy on our politics: references to 1984 have become part of our culture, and the iconic Guy Fawkes mask from the film V for Vendetta is worn as a symbol of resistance by protestors around the world. But why? And wherein lies the appeal of these visions of politics gone bad? Steven Fielding asks what the authors intended, and whether these visions make a useful contribution to the political process."

Two Classic SciFi radio dramas can be downloaded from the Internet Archive:

Dimension X was first heard on NBC April 8, 1950, and ran until September 29, 1951. This show dramatized the work of such young writers as Ray Bradbury, Robert (Psycho) Bloch, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut. In-house script writer was Ernest Kinoy, who adapted the master works and contributed occasional storied of his own.

X Minus One aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following.

X Minus One was an extension of Dimension X. The stories for the show came from two of the most popular science fiction magazines at the time; Astounding and Galaxy. These stories came from the minds of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Poul Anderson to name a few.

[I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream - 2 of 3] [Read By Harlan Ellison]
[I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream - 3 of 3] [Read By Harlan Ellison]

Wikipedia: "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" is a postapocalyptic science fiction short story by Harlan Ellison. It was first published in the March 1967 issue of IF: Worlds of Science Fiction. It won a Hugo Award in 1968. The story takes place 109 years after the complete destruction of human civilization. The Cold War had escalated into a world war, fought mainly between China, Russia, and the United States. As the war progressed, the three warring nations each created a super-computer capable of running the war more efficiently than humans. One day, one of the three computers becomes self aware, and promptly absorbs the other two, thus taking control of the entire war. It carries out campaigns of mass genocide, killing off all but four men and one woman." Read on

Star Trek Into Darkness Press Conference - Berlin
Star Trek Into Darkness Press Conference - London

Neil Gaiman's keynote at The Digital Minds Conference 2013
“But digital meant the end of several dinosaurs. Encyclopedias – I actually remember encyclopedia salesmen knocking on my door. Well, just one, but he was an encyclopedia salesman. And I still have encyclopedias at home. Ancient Encyclopedia Britannica’s, a set of World Books that was bought for me by my dad in the ‘60’s. They were heavy. They were huge. They took up room. They were rarely consulted. They were out of date when you got them. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as predicted by Douglas, was an encyclopedia that could be updated on the fly. And encyclopedias ended.

Und weil der Lifestyle des muskulösen Naturburschen als Alternative zur technologisierten Dienstleistungsgesellschaft nicht ausgedient hat, erzählen immer wieder neue Kinofilme, Fernsehserien und Comics die Abenteuer des Herrn des Dschungels."

2. März 1933: Uraufführung von King Kong (WDR5)
WDR5: ""Und die Bestie blickte auf das Antlitz der Schönheit und sie ließ ab vom Töten. Und von diesem Tag an war sie wie tot." Dieses - frei erfundene - arabische Sprichwort steht im Vorspann des Films "King Kong und die weiße Frau". Uraufgeführt wurde der Fantasyfilm in der Radio City Music Hall. Mit 6200 Plätzen war es das größte Kino der Welt. 700 000 Dollar investierte die kurz vor dem Konkurs stehende Produktionsfirma RKO und sie konnte gerettet werden, weil "King Kong" ein Welterfolg wurde."
