To that end, Boris acquires a time-travel device and jumps back to 1969 to kill K and prevent his arrestation. At the same time, J discovers that the world has changed around him, as K has disappeared, and nobody seems to know him, except a few people who remember him from before his death in 1969.

As J knows Boris' victims in the few days before the death of K, they meet Griffin, an alien able to see all possible futures who is in possesion of the ArcNet, a device deployed by K in J's original reality's 1969, that prevented Boris' species from invading Earth forty years later (as is happening in the alternate reality).

Monsters University

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



In the parallel universe of monsters, Mike is not scary but still dreams of becoming a scarer (those who make the children scared to harvest their scare energy). As he grows up, Mike joins Monster University and enters the scare program. He also meets Sulley, an obviously scaring monster, son of a famous scarer, who unlike Mike does not take his studies seriously, but instead relies on his inherited talent. Despite having studied hard and because of his rivalry with Sulley leading to the destruction of the dean's trophy for extreme scariness, they both fail their end-of-term exam and are expelled from the scare program. Mike then enters the Scare Games, betting with the dean that if he win the games he can continue studying to become a scarer (and would leave the university otherwise). As he needs a team, he is adopted by OK, the least popular fraternity on campus, and convinces Sulley to join them. Mike coaches the team and they are more or less ready to enter the competition. They manage to not get eliminated until the last round of the games where they compete against the team from the popular ROR fraternity. Mike's team wins the scare simulator tests thanks to Mike's exceptional score, but he soon discovers that Sulley had tampered with the simulator to make sure they would win, putting doubt on his ability to scare a child. To prove himself, he enters the world of humans through an experimental door developed at the university, and fails to scare a sleeping child. He soon discovers that he is in the dormitories of a summer camp; in the meanwhile, Sulley follows Mike to take him back, and is mistaken for a bear by the humans. At the same time, the door is powered down by university's authorities, preventing the two monsters from coming back. But Mike reasons that with enough human scare energy, it would be possible to power the door. He orchestrate a scary situation for Sulley scare the humans as much as possible, generating more power than has ever been generated. Despite their feat, Mike and Sulley are expelled from the university, but enter Monster Inc. as mailmen, and quickly go up the ladder and eventually both of them become scarers.

Sol force alors le passage vers l'extérieur, blessant au passage les gardiens mis en place par Oksa, et peu après Till entraîne ses amis dans la brèche. Bien qu'elle soit sur le point l'accoucher, Oksa et ses amis partent à la recherche de Till, mais l'accouchement commence alors qu'elle est dans la brèche ; un des bébés est aspiré par l'Égide alors que cette dernière se reforme, et Oksa accouche du second à l'intérieur.

Lost in a Good Book

Categories: [ Books/Thursday Next ]

ISBN: 9780340733578

© Amazon.fr

Following her success in The Eyre Affair, Thursday is forced to do PR for SpecOps, but she is prohibited to tell the truth about the role of Jack Schitt, the Goliath Corporation agent. She investigates the sudden discovery of a lost Shakespeare play that falls into the hands of the leader of the Whig party who uses it to increase his chances of becoming Prime Minister. Thursday's father also tells her that the World is going to end very soon, being entirely covered with an unknown pink substance. Over the course of several weeks, Thursday finds herself repeatedly in situations where an impossibly large number of coincidences almost succeed in getting her killed, while her hierarchy is trying to find an excuse to arrest her. Then one day she discovers that her husband Landen has been erased out of her history by corrupt chonoguards working for Schitt's half-brother Schitt-Hawse. The latter blackmails Thursday into freeing Schitt from the poem where he's kept prisoner. In the absence of her uncle who had invented the Prose Portal, the only way she knows to enter a story is Mrs Nakajima whom she had met in Jane Eyre. Thursday looks for her in Okinawa where she finds Nakajima's travel book, allowing her to travel on her own into a story. There she is chosen to become a member on Jurisfiction, an organization that ensures the stability of worlds of literary fiction. Thursday becomes an apprentice to Great Expectations' Mrs Havisham, one of the best Jurisfiction agents. After a failed attempt by her father to prevent Landen's death as a child, Thursday fetches Schitt and is kidnapped by Schitt-Hawse, but is rescued by Mrs Havisham. They then prove that the Shakespeare play was taken from Jurisfiction's library of lost books, and that the Whig politician is actually a fictional character, who is arrested too. She then discovers that the coincidences that almost got her killed have been provoked by Hades' sister Aornis who wants revenge for her brother's death, by putting Thursday in a situation where she would prevent the end of the world (by being covered in out-of-control, self-replicating Dream Topping, invented by her cousin) if she commits suicide. Thursday is saved in the nick of time by an old version of her father who takes the self-replicating stuff to the down of time, where it becomes the beginning of life on Earth. Thursday then goes into hiding into a book from the library of lost books.

In a parallel universe where England and Russia still fight in the Crimean war, Thursday Next is a LiteraTec investigator whose job is to fight crimes against literary art. Soon after the original manuscript for Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit is stolen in London without the thieve having left any clue (not even on video-surveillance), Thursday is transferred to SpecOps 5 to advise an agent about Acheron Hades, a master criminal with the power to control minds and look like anyone. Having discovered that Hades has stolen the manuscript, she attempts to arrest Hades, but she is wounded and her colleagues are killed in the operation. After an investigation by SpecOps 1 who claims that Hades has died in a car accident, she sees her future self telling her to take the LiteraTec job in Swindon, her hometown. Upon her arrival she meets her family an especially her uncle Mycroft who shows her his new invention the Prose Portal, a device based on book worms that allow people to enter into literary works. Besides her new colleagues, she also meets Jack Schitt, a representative of the all-powerful Goliath corporation who recently promised a new plasma rifle that would end the Crimean war. Some time later, the manuscript for Jane Eyre is stolen by Hades, and Mortimer and his invention disappear. Hades demonstrates his power by removing a minor character from Martin Chuzzlewit, which causes all copies of the story get instantly modified. Thursday and her colleague travel to Haworth to investigate, but are delayed by a time distortion on the motorway which allows Thursday to talk to her past self. Thursday and her colleagues manage to track some of Goliath's associates, and they get a clue that the criminal is hiding in the People's Republic of Wales. Soon after, Hades kidnaps Jane Eyre and threatens to kill her unless he's paid a ransom. Schitt attempts to swindle the criminal who escapes again, and they track him to his hideout in Wales. There Thursday understands that Schitt wants to buy the Prose Portal from Hades to be able to get plasma rifles from a promotion book about plasma rifles, as in reality Goliath has been unable to develop the weapon. Convinced by Thursday to return Jane to her story, Hades goes into hiding in the story, quickly followed by Thursday, who spends there several months with Rochester, searching for Hades. They eventually find him and kill him, changing in the process the end of the story (that most people don't like) to turn it into the happily-ever-after version that exists in our universe.

Dorothy acts as supervisor for the colored computers unit, and is denied getting the title officially. When she learns that human computers will be made obsolete by the new IBM computer, she steals a Fortran book from the library's white section, teaches herself and the other computers how to program, and learns how to operate the IBM device. When NASA realizes the need for a team of programmers, Dorothy accepts to supervise the Programming Department on the condition that her team is transferred with her. Thanks to the three protagonists, John Glenn's mission is a success.

Holmes confie à ses francs-tireurs le soin de résoudre le meurtre de Gurney, un chef de gang des docks, tué par une flèche empoisonnée. Les « Mad Dogs » suspectent le clan des Chinois, et les Chinois suspectent le seul herboriste chinois qui connait le poison utilisé. Les francs-tireurs rencontrent May, la fille chinoise adoptive d'un prêtre qui milite pour que la Grande Bretagne cesse le commerce de l'opium avec la Chine. Voyant que l'herboriste est accusé, May avoue aux francs-tireurs que c'est elle qui a tué Gurney, ce dernier ayant causé la mort de ses parents en Chine à cause du trafic d'opium. Finalement la population chinoise se soulève contre les deux gangs du quartier et May retourne en Chine avec le prêtre.
