作者介绍:(about the author:Robert Heinlein)

被誉为美国现代科幻小说之父的罗伯特·海因莱因诞生于1907年7月7日,1925年进入安那波利斯海军学院学习,毕业后作为航空母舰和驱逐舰的士官到海军服役。1934年,海因莱因因病退役,重返大学,学习数学和物理学,但很快又因病辍学。在成为一名科幻作家之前,海因莱因从事过许多职业。当过银矿矿工,作过建筑商,甚至还动过从政的念头。
1939年,第二次世界大战使美国经济陷入萧条,海因莱因被债务压得抬不起头来。恰在此时,一家科幻杂志刊出了一则科幻小说征文比赛的启事,奖金是50美元。从小就是科幻迷的海因莱因决定争取这50美元的奖金,可是,当他写完他的处女作后,却觉得它应该值更多的钱,于是就把它寄给了当时最著名的科幻杂志《惊人故事》。《惊人故事》的主编——大名鼎鼎的坎贝尔——慧眼识珠,当即以70美元买下了这篇小说,它就是海因莱因的短篇杰作《生命线》(Life-Line)。
在《生命线》中,海因莱因将人生描绘成一条“粉红色虫子”,从遥远的过去一直通向未来。现时只是这条“虫子”的某个断面,人们完全可以从这个断面推测出“虫子”的首尾,也就是人的过去与未来。
海因莱因的第一篇作品就显示了与众不同的才华。对此,美国著名科幻评论家詹姆斯·冈恩这样评论道:“海因莱因在32岁时找到了自己的职业;而与此同时,坎贝尔则找到了他的明星作家。”
海因莱因开始连续发表作品,《镇魂曲》、《宇宙》、《光暴》……仅仅半年之后,海因莱因就已经是科幻小说界有声望的作家了。
二战后,海因莱因开始在美国一流文艺刊物《星期六晚邮报》上连载他的未来学系列《地球的绿色山丘》。这次连载可以算是美国科幻的一个历史性事件,它标志着科幻小说从廉价的三流读物向高级的娱乐作品的跃升。海因莱因在这段时间为青少年创作的《伽利略号火箭飞船》(1947)同样也是一部标志性作品,它的内容为1950年的科幻电影《目的地:月球》所采用,而这部电影正是20世纪50年代科幻电影开始繁荣的起点。
50年代中期到60年代中期,是海因莱因科幻创作的鼎盛期,这期间创作了一系列高水准的科幻长篇,其中《双星》(Double,1956)、《星船伞兵》(Starship Troopers,1959)、《异乡异客》(Stranger in a Strange Land,1961)以及《月亮是一个严厉的女人》(The Moon in a Harsh Mistress,1966)四部获得了著名的雨果奖。
海因莱因一生创作了十多部短篇科幻小说集、三十多部长篇科幻小说,其中《异乡异客》仅在美国就卖出了七百万册;1946年、1961年、1976年,海因莱因三次被邀为世界科幻大会的主宾;世界科幻小说协会从1974年起开始不定期颁发“科幻大师奖”,海因莱因是第一个赢得“大师”称号的科幻作家。
1988年,海因莱因因病逝世。美国华盛顿特区为表彰他的杰出贡献,特别为他颁发了“杰出公民勋章”。


内容提要:(Excerpts)

"I want to mention one of the obvious symptoms [of a sick culture]: Violence. Muggings. Sniping. Arson. Bombing. Terrorism of any sort. Riots of course--but I suspect that little incidents of violence, pecking away at people day after day, damage a culture even more than riots that flare up and then die down. I guess that's all for now. Oh, conscription and slavery and arbitrary compulsion of all sorts and imprisonment without bail and without speedy trial--but those things are obvious; all the histories list them."
"Friday, I think you have missed the most alarming symptom of all."
"I have? Are you going to tell me? Or am I going to have to grope around in the dark for it?"
"Mmm. This once I shall tell you. But go back and search for it. Examine it. Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named... but a dying culture invariable exhibits personal rudness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot."
"Really?"
"Pfui. I should have forced you to dig it out yourself; then you would know it. This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength."


本书评论:(Reviews)

A few decades into the next century, the world's superpowers, including the United States, will have balkanized into a number of smaller states, and the real world powers-multinational corporations--will have territory no broader than the lots their headquarters occupy. At least on paper, for their boardroom squabbles take on mammoth proportions--chess matches with the globe as the board. One contender loses a pawn and Acapulco vanishes in a nuclear fireball. Amid this capitalist/nationalist brawl, a few intelligence agencies sell their services to the highest bidder, and in order to act effectively, these agencies need strong, swift, intelligent operatives.
Enter Friday, a genetically engineered woman who can outfight, outrun and outwit any normal human. She works as a courier for one of the mercenary agencies, and we follow her exploits as she dispatches her assignments. But all is not well with this superwoman, for she has been conditioned from earliest childhood to think of herself as an "Artificial Person," which is nothing more than her brave new world's designation for "slave." Worse, every time Friday feels as though she has attained a measure of love and belonging (which she never got in the corporate lab that raised her), something happens to upend her world. Follow along on her quest for love--and watch out for assassins.
Heinlein penned this proto-cyberpunk novel in 1982, a few years before Gibson fired what is arguably the first shot in the cyberpunk revolution: Neuromancer. (One wonders how much Neuromancer's megalopolis "The Sprawl" owes to Friday's vivid and chilling backdrop.) And we find in Friday what is a normal feat for him but amazing for most any other septuagenarian novelist: Heinlein clearly and seemingly accurately extrapolates trends which still unfurl around us today. For example, he predicts an internet complete with multimedia and search engines long before it existed, and describes a leviathan called Shipstone, Inc., an indispensable and manipulative megacorporation highly suggestive of the Microsoft of today. He speaks of a world tendency for large states to splinter into many smaller ones a full decade before the dissolution of the Soviet Union. And Heinlein also riffs on the darker undercurrents threatening mankind, among them organized crime, pestilence and famine, and various forms of know-nothingism--including religious terrorism.
Friday is loosely tied to the novelette "Gulf," which appeared in Assignment in Eternity; the two works share a character, "Kettle Belly" Baldwin, and the motif of a secret society of supermen. There are enough big ideas and rousing action in Friday to satisfy any reader.

  1. 类似“顶”、“沙发”之类没有营养的文字,对勤劳贡献的楼主来说是令人沮丧的反馈信息。
  2. 提问之前请再仔细看一遍楼主的说明,或许是您遗漏了。
  3. 勿催片。请相信驴友们对分享是富有激情的,如果确有更新版本,您一定能搜索到。
  4. 请勿到处挖坑绊人、招贴广告。既占空间让人厌烦,又没人会搭理,于人于己都无利。
  5. 如果您发现自己的评论不见了,请参考以上4条。
