Read full description of the books Die Mauern der Welt hoch:

Die Mauern der Welt hoch ist der erste von zwei aus James Tiptree Jrs. Feder stammenden Romanen.

Während auf der Erde Dr. Daniel Dan ein lang geplantes Experiment zu Telepathie medizinisch betreut und dabei gegen seine eigenen Abgründe kämpft, kehrt Tivonel, ein rochenartiges Wesen, in ihre Heimat Tyree zurück. Dort erfährt sie schon bald, dass ihre Welt bedroht wird von einem alles vernichtenden riesigen Zerstörer, der ziellos durchs All treibt und eine Galaxie nach der anderen verschlingt. Doch Rettung scheint in Sicht, als einige Bewohner von Tyree mittels Teleportation auf die Gruppe um Dr. Dan stoßen. Gegen den Willen und den Ethos der Altvorderen begehen sie Lebensraub, indem sie die Körper der irdischen Telepathen infiltrieren und deren Bewusstsein nach Tyree transferieren.
Menschen und Tyrenner lernen einander kennen und kämpfen nun gemeinsam gegen den großen Zerstörer. Allerdings ist seine Bedrohlichkeit von einer unermesslichen Einsamkeit durchdrungen, und es fällt schwer, in ihm nur das Böse zu sehen. So wie sich die unterschiedlichsten Wesen mehr und mehr durchdringen, so durchdringen sich auch Gut und Böse.

Read information about the author

Ebook Die Mauern der Welt hoch read Online! "James Tiptree, Jr." was born Alice Bradley in Chicago in 1915. Her mother was the writer Mary Hastings Bradley; her father, Herbert, was a lawyer and explorer. Throughout her childhood she travelled with her parents, mostly to Africa, but also to India and Southeast Asia. Her early work was as an artist and art critic. During World War II she enlisted in the Army and became the first American female photointelligence officer. In Germany after the war, she met and married her commanding officer, Huntington D. Sheldon. In the early 1950s, both Sheldons joined the then-new CIA; he made it his career, but she resigned in 1955, went back to college, and earned a Ph.D. in experimental psychology.

At about this same time, Alli Sheldon started writing science fiction. She wrote four stories and sent them off to four different science fiction magazines. She did not want to publish under her real name, because of her CIA and academic ties, and she intended to use a new pseudonym for each group of stories until some sold. They started selling immediately, and only the first pseudonym—"Tiptree" from a jar of jelly, "James" because she felt editors would be more receptive to a male writer, and "Jr." for fun—was needed. (A second pseudonym, "Raccoona Sheldon," came along later, so she could have a female persona.)

Tiptree quickly became one of the most-respected writers in the field, winning the Hugo Award for "The Girl Who was Plugged In" and "Houston, Houston, Do You Read?," and the Nebula Award for "Julie Phillips wrote her biography, James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon
