The runaway bestseller about the ultimate reality show. The year is 2025. The Running Man is America's favorite television game show. Ben Richards is the program's latest contestant and the Hunters' latest target in a rigged game of death. Amazon.com Review Stephing King (writing as Richard Bachman) crafted The Running Man early in his career, though hater such mega-hits as Carrie and The Shining. A bit of a departure from the supernatural horror that is most frequently asociated with his work, the novel describes a science fiction dystopia where market capitalism and television game shows have spiraled out of control, and the separation between the haves and the have-nots has been formalized with separate currencies. King establishes characters quickly, creating sympathy in the first few pages for Ben Richards--whose 18-month-old baby girl is suffering from a horrible cough, perhaps pneumonia. Not able to afford medicine, Richards enters himself in the last-chance money-making scheme of the Free-Vee games. The games that include Treadmill to Bucks, in which heart-attack prone contestants struggle to outlast a progressively demanding treadmill, or the accurately named Swim the Crocodiles. After a rigorous battery of physical and mental examinations, Richards is assigned "Elevator Six"--the path of a chosen few--that leads to The Running Man game. In this game, the Stakes and the prizes are raised. Success means a life of luxury. Failure means death. Unfortunately, few ever win the game; in fact, as the producer tells Richards, in six years no on has survived. The Running Man is a short book, tightly written to be read and enjoyed quickly. The future world it depicts is vividly captured with a few essential deatils. The action is also fast paced and, thought the novel differs from much of King's other work, the sardonic social commentary reveals a pleasing glimmer of King's characteristically twisted sense of humor. --Patrick O'Kelley Review Merely by tickling the keys of his word-processor King can make the flesh creep half a world away --The Times Stephen King is one of those natural storytellers...getting hooked is easy --Frances Fyfield, Express An incredibly gifted writer, whose writing, like Truman Capote's, is so fluid that you often forget that you're reading. --Guardian

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2000 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Linguistik, Note: 1, Carl von Ossietzky Universitat Oldenburg (Anglistik), Veranstaltung: English Morphology, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Das war harte Arbeit... 167 KB, Abstract: Im Folgenden werde ich verschiedene Typen englischer Wortbildungsarten anhand eines kurzen Textausschnittes von Richard Bachman alias Stephen King aufzeigen. Es handelt sich bei dem von mir gewahlten Ausschnitt um das erste Kapitel aus der Science-Fiction Geschichte The Running man" (King 1982), die von einer Gameshow der Zukunft handelt, in der die Kandidaten von der ganzen Nation und ausgebildeten Jagern zum Vergnugen des Publikums gejagt und getotet werden. Ich wahlte diese Geschichte weil, wie in vielen Science-Fiction Geschichten auch hier viele Wortschopfungen vom Autor vorgenommen wurden. Diese Worte sind dem Leser unbekannt, existieren in unserem Sprachgebrauch nicht, unterliegen aber den selben Wortbildungsgesetzen wie bekannte Worte, so dass an ihnen gut illustriert werden kann, wie Worte neu gebildet werden. Ich werde mich bei meiner Analyse an die von Quirk (1989) vorgenommene Einteilung der verschiedenen Wortbildungstypen halten und die im Text auftretenden Wortbildungen unterteilen in durch Prafigierung und Suffigierung, durch Konversion und Komposition gebildete Worte. Ich werde mich auf die Untersuchung von derivationalen Beispielen aus dem Text beschranken, also Wortbilungen, bei denen durch die Verbindung eines freien mit mindestens einem nicht-freien Morphem ein neues Lexem entsteht, so wie etwa bei der Verbindung von {walk} und {-er} das neue Lexem WALKER entsteht. Inflektionale Wortbildungen, bei denen lediglich neue Wortformen gebildet werden, so wie etwa bei der Verbindung von {walk} und {s} die Wortform walks entsteht, werden im Folgenden nicht diskutiert. Um der Klarheit der Verwendung von Objekt- und Metasprache wegen, wird im Folgenden der Text, der uber das zu diskutierende Sprachobjekt"

Ein vergessenes Volk und das Geheimnis der besten und glücklichsten Läufer der Welt

Originell, faszinierend, abenteuerlich: ein Journalist auf der Suche nach dem letzten Geheimnis des Sports Seine Passion: das Laufen, sein Beruf: das Schreiben. Christopher McDougall suchte eine Antwort auf eine vermeintlich einfache Frage: Warum tut mir mein Fuß weh? Wie er sind Millionen von Hobbyläufern mindestens einmal im Jahr ernsthaft verletzt. Nach unzähligen Zyklen des Dauerschmerzes, der Kortisonspritzen und immer neuer Hightech-Sportschuhen stand McDougall kurz davor, zu kapitulieren und die Diagnose der Mediziner ein für alle Mal hinzunehmen: „Sie sind einfach nicht zum Laufen gemacht.“ Stattdessen hat sich der Journalist weit abseits der kostspieligen Empfehlungen von Ärzten und Ausrüstern auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zu den geheimnisvollsten und besten Läufern der Welt begeben. Eine Reise, die McDougall in die von Mythen erfüllten Schluchten der Copper Canyons in Mexiko führen sollte, wo ein Volk lebt, das sich seit Jahrhunderten unter extremen Bedingungen seine Lebensweise bewahrt hat. Die Tarahumara verkörpern den menschlichen Bewegungsdrang in seiner reinsten und faszinierendsten Form. Laufen über lange Strecken ist für sie so selbstverständlich wie atmen. Was wussten sie, was McDougall nicht wusste? In seiner Reportage geht er den vergessenen Geheimnissen der Tarahumara nach. Er verbindet lebendiges Infotainment über neueste evolutionsbiologische und ethnologische Erkenntnisse mit zahlreichen, inspirierenden Porträts von Menschen, die sich – egal, ob sie zum Spaß das Death Valley durchqueren oder einen Ultramarathon in den Rocky Mountains absolvieren – eines bewahrt haben: die Freude daran, laufen zu können wie ein Kind. Einfach immer weiter. Denn in Wahrheit, so McDougalls Fazit, sind wir alle zum Laufen geboren.

On August 10, 1901, two English ladies decided to visit the Palace of Versailles for what was anticipated to be an ordinary day of sightseeing. However, on that fateful day, a series of mysterious encounters occurred. When the ladies visited Queen Marie Antoinette's Petit Trianon, both were later convinced they had stepped back in time to the eighteenth century. One of the ladies even believed she had witnessed the queen herself! Were the ladies encounters a case of mistaken identity and confusion, or did they unknowingly step back in time to walk along paths from a bygone era at Versailles?
