Описание:
Джон Килиан Хьюстон Браннер (John Kilian Houston Brunner) 24 сентября 1934 г.-25 августа 1995 г. — британский писатель-фантаст.
Первая публикация — в 17 лет, роман «Galactic Storm» (1951, под псевдонимом Джил Хант). Писательской деятельностью всерьёз занимается с 1958 года, причём ранние работы представляют собой яркие образцы приключенческой фантастики.
С середины 60-х в творчестве Браннера появляются заметные мотивы психологической и социально-философской фантастики. В 1968 году Браннер публикует роман «Всем стоять на Зазнзибаре» — антиутопию, действие которой разворачивается в перенаселенном мире Земли будущего. Роман был удостоен премии «Hugo» в 1969-м, чуть позже к ней добавилась «Британская премия НФ», а в 1973 году — премия «Apollo» за лучший роман года, опубликованный на французском языке. Нужно заметить, кстати, что на тот момент это был самый обьемный научно-фантастический роман.
Три романа, последовавшие за этим — «The Jagged Orbit» (1969), «The Sheep Look Up» (1972) и «The Shockwave Rider» (1975) также были антиутопиями, причем последняя позже была признана одной из важных предтеч киберпанка. В ней автор вводит в обиход понятие «червь» для описание софта, который распространяет сам себя через сеть (что опережает сам факт появления подобных вирусов на несколько лет). Термин прижился.
Джон Браннер продолжал писать и публиковаться на протяжении 70-х — начала 90-х годов, однако ни один из его последующих романов не смог вызвать столь широкого резонанса, как «Всем стоять на Зазнзибаре» и «The Shockwave Rider».

. . . and there it is!
Brilliant as a blob of quicksilver it shone on the grey-chalk oblate of the planet's moon: a jewel amid a ruin of decay. From this distance, thousands of kilo­metres away, it was minuscule. No details could be made out such as were to be discerned in the pictures they had all studied at home on Earth.
Nonetheless, to see it in real time was very different from looking at photographs. It was right to plot the course for Stellaris, between her emergence from qua-space and her approach to a landing on Sigma Dra­conis III, so that for these few minutes the light of the local star would glint off that incredible artifact and waken in the minds of those arriving here for the first time an echo of the shock experienced by the explorers who had chanced on it back in 2020, on what other­wise would almost certainly have been the last of man's attempts to visit the stars in view of the disappoint­ments of Proxima, Epsilon Eridani and Tau Ceti—or at any rate the last in the foreseeable future.
But of course finding that thing . . . !
A shiver crawled down Ian Macauley's spine. A curl of his untidy red hair, bending over to touch his freck­led forehead, felt like a ghostly alien caress, and he shot up his hand to brush it aside. Against his will—no, more exactly: without conscious intention—he found himself reciting dry statistics under his breath.
Diameter thirty-six point oh five kilometres. Wall height one point one nine kilometres averaged. Thick­ness of the mirror --
With an effort he cut short the recital of bare stark figures and switched to words, which he cared for a great deal more:
They, whoever, whatever they were, came to their moon and smoothed and rounded and polished a whole vast crater and made it into the largest telescope imaginable. And they're dead. They've been dead for a hundred thousand years. Yet the first trace we can find of them was only three thousand years earlier; it's as though the weight of a thousand centuries has compressed the whole of their history—come to that, the whole of their evolution—into a layer no thicker than a little sewn of coal, memorial to the sprouting, heyday and downfall of a million trees!
In spite of which, should they so choose, these late-comers, these humans from Earth, could wipe away the meteoritic dust which had accumulated on the mirror of the telescope, and mend half a dozen breach­es caused by larger-than-usual chunks of cosmic gar­bage, and substitute their own inanimate electronics for the—the whatevers that its builders had employed, long desiccated into incomprehensible black shreds ... and the telescope would still be usable.
"It's unbelievable!"
He had not meant to speak aloud, nor did he realise he had done so until a caustic voice from behind him said, "Yes, I'm sure it is. But I'd like a glimpse of it, too, please!"
Hastily he stepped aside from the viewport, mutter­ing apologies and a trifle relieved that his successor was no one other than plump, plain, likable Karen Vlady, the civil engineer among their party.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
 
Take ’em an inch and they’ll give you a hell.
 
DATA-RETRIVIAL MODE
 
The man in the bare steel chair was as naked as the room’s white walls. They had shaved his head and body completely; only his eyelashes remained. Tiny adhesive pads held sensors in position at a dozen places on his scalp, on his temples close to the corners of his eyes, at each side of his mouth, on his throat, over his heart and over his solar plexus and at every major ganglion down to his ankles.
From each sensor a lead, fine as gossamer, ran to the sole object—apart from the steel chair and two other chairs, both softly padded—that might be said to furnish the room. That was a data-analysis console about two meters broad by a meter and a half high, with display screens and signal lights on its slanted top, convenient to one of the padded chairs.
Additionally, on adjustable rods cantilevered out from the back of the steel chair, there were microphones and a three-vee camera.
The shaven man was not alone. Also present were three other people: a young woman in a slick white coverall engaged in checking the location of the sensors; a gaunt black man wearing a fashionable dark red jerkin suit clipped to the breast of which was a card bearing his picture and the name Paul T. Freeman; and a heavy-set white man of about fifty, dressed in dark blue, whose similar card named him as Ralph C. Hartz.
