2 Tântalus - Jose Navas Junior
Auteur : Jose Navas Junior
Genre : Fiction & Literature
Imagine o que pode acontecer a uma nação corrompida e conectada, que não domina seu próprio parque tecnológico, quando todo o sistema passa a ser controlado por uma força cibernética desconhecida, com amplo domínio político, social e cultural, capaz de exercer forte influência sobre o povo, capaz de impor sua vontade.

Em apenas 7 dias todo um país pode ser dominado, seus líderes expostos, os poderes subvertidos, os conceitos mitigados, e sem disparar um tiro, sem usar uma arma, sem que se exista no mundo real, materializado. 

Saiba como, conheça Tântalus.

Expendables
3 The Expendables: The Rings of Tantalus - Edmund Cooper
Auteur : Edmund Cooper
Genre : Sci-Fi & Fantasy
First they went to Kratos - and faced the Deathworms. Then they went on to Tantalus and tried to fathom the Rings - which could only have been fabricated with the help of highly sophisticated machinery.

And then they discover an alien spaceship orbiting the planet in strict silence and incommunicability.
When they finally boarded the vessel, it was obvious that it had been derelict for centuries - as a result of some dreadful battle. Meanwhile down below, the enigmatic Rings lay waiting to deal with intruders - as they did the deadly vampire tree. Once again, Commander James Conrad and his team of Expendables faced their mission to find planets suitable for colonization.

The second of a new series of books, The Rings of Tantalus seems guaranteed to further launch Richard Avery as a very special writer of modern science fiction novels. And there are more to come

Children
8 The Children of Tantalus - Rüdiger Opelt
Auteur : Rüdiger Opelt
Genre : Psychology
Tantalus, a king in ancient Greece, kills his son and is condemned to torture and punishment. All his family are damned to repeat his deed and kill each other, until his great grandson Orestes finds a way out of the endless repetition of violence.

Violence and suffering are inseparably interconnected. That's common sense told by this old myth. To explain mental illness can we not trace suffering back to violence? Yes we can. In WWII millions of men were slaughtered, tortured, imprisoned or expelled from their home. Even today the children and grandchildren of these victims are haunted by the nightmares of the past, get ill and emotionally disturbed by unprocessed traumatic experiences of their families. This new theory has a revolutionary impact on clinical psychology.

9 Enigma from Tantalus - John Brunner
Auteur : John Brunner
Genre : Sci-Fi & Fantasy
'We won't be landing anywhere just yet', Waters said to the other passengers on the spaceship Fulmar. 'I was pretty mystified by this story of mechanical breakdown, so I've been checking up.' He hefted his little box. 'I've spent the past half hour successfully tapping your subspace circuits, Captain, so I know the truth and I propose to share it with everyone. We're not to land. We're to orbit in space, indefinitely.'

Beloved Sister Dorcas's screams pierced the quiet.

'You see,' Waters continued, holding up his hand for silence, 'this is being done on the direct orders of Master Brand . . . you don't know the name?' He glanced inquiringly around. 'No? Well, he happens to be one of the powers of Earth, and there is nobody in the galaxy to overrule him.'

10 Die Kinder des Tantalus - Rüdiger Opelt
Auteur : Rüdiger Opelt
Genre : Psychology
Der Mythos von Tantalus und seinen Nachkommen als Muster für Flucht und Verdrängung ebenso wie für Lösung aus der Spirale seelischer Grausamkeiten. Wie Gewalt auch Kinder und Kindeskinder krank macht und wie es dem zu entrinnen gelingt.

Warum erleiden manche Menschen Schicksalsschläge in Folge und genießen andere ein Leben voller Erfolg? Warum ist der eine ein Pechvogel und der andere ein Schoßkind des Glücks? Darüber haben sich Menschen den Kopf zerbrochen, seit es Menschen gibt. Der Psychologe und Psychotherapeut Rüdiger Opelt findet im griechischen Mythos von Tantalus und seinen verfluchten Nachkommen eine verblüffend klare Antwort: Gewalt frisst sich in die Seele von Opfern und Täter, aus dem Grauen resultierenden Traumata werden - meist von einem Mantel des Schweigens bedeckt - unbewusst an Kinder und Kindeskinder weitergegeben. Und das über Generationen.

American
12 American Tantalus - Andrew Warnes
Auteur : Andrew Warnes
Genre : Literary Criticism
American Tantalus argues that modern US fictions often grow preoccupied by tantalisation. This keyword might seem commonplace; thesauruses, certainly, often lump it in with tease and torment in their general inventories of desire. Such lists, however, mislead. Just as most US dictionaries have in fact long recognised tantalise's origins in The Odyssey, so they have defined it as the unique desire we feel for objects that (like the fruit and water once cruelly placed before Tantalus) lie within our reach yet withdraw from our attempts to touch them.

On these terms, American Tantalus shows, tantalise not only describes a particular kind of thwarted desire, but also one that dominates modern US fiction to a remarkable extent. For this term specifically evokes the yearning to touch alienated or virginal objects that we find examined by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Toni Cade Bambara, R

Das Raumschiff DEMETER erreicht im Verlauf einer Forschungsreise den Planeten Tantalus. Ein Erkundungstrupp, der gleichzeitig eine automatische Sendestation errichten soll, wird ausgeschickt.

Auteur : M.A. Abraham
Genre : Adventure
Twenty ships have left the gravitational field of the Earth with the intention of colonizing Mars. Each is independent of the other and set to become domed cities upon landing. The mission is simple: go forth to develop the new planet, make it an extension of our home. Well, it sounded simple.

No one expected life on Mars to be easy, they are pioneers and that is a type of life that comes with dangers. What they didn’t expect was for the settings of one of the ships to be off enough to miss their landing, to miss the very planet they were meant to settle.

Even more astounding was to find another planet within a three-week travel period that lies in the shadow of the red planet. It is where they will land, where their ship will unfold to become a domed city. Where life is dangerous in a hostile land and they find unexpected help. The indigenous winged people of the

Flowers
21 Spring Flowers, Spring Frost - Ismail Kadare & David Bellos
Auteur : Ismail Kadare & David Bellos
Genre : Literary
In a small town at the foot of the northern highlands in Albania, a decade after the fall of the Communist regime, the harsh blood-for-blood law of the fearsome Kanun mountain folk is emerging from hibernation, like everything else that was forbidden under the fifty years of Communist rule. Mysterious happenings that are two thousand years old, two centuries old, or even just two years old reemerge in daily life. The marriage of a girl and a snake is not just a legend but a news item—a cyclical event that is as much part of the modern world as of the ancient one. Set against this Kafkaesque backdrop, a simple and sensual love story between a painter and a young woman stands out as light against dark. 
With its rich and somber story of local traditions and universal themes, Spring Flowers, Spring Frost is a masterpiece belonging to Kadare’s purest classical vei
