I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me. So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature-the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man´s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

In 1977 Frederik Pohl stunned the science-fiction world with the publication of Gateway, one of the most brilliantly entertaining SF novels of all time. Gateway was a best seller and won science fiction´s triple crown: the Hugo, Nebula, and John W. Campbell Memorial awards for best novel. Now, more than 25 years later, Pohl has completed a new novel set in the Gateway universe. The Boy Who Would Live Forever has a sense of wonder and excitement that will satisfy those who loved Gateway and will delight new listeners as well. In Gateway, long after the alien Heechee abandoned their space-station, Gateway (as humans dubbed it) allowed humans to explore new worlds. The Heechee, alarmed by the alien Kugel whose goal was to destroy all organic lifeforms, had already retreated to the galactic core, where they now lived in peace. Now, in The Boy Who Would Live Forever, humans with dreams of life among the stars are joining the Heechee at the core, to live there along with those humans and Heechee whose physical bodies have died but have had their minds stored in electronic memory so that their wisdom passes down through the ages . Their peace is threatened by the Kugel, who may yet attack the core. But a much greater threat is the human Wan Enrique Santos-Smith, whose blind loathing of the Heechee fuels an insane desire to destroy them and, incidentally, every living being in the galaxy. Stan and Estrella, two young people from Earth, went to Gateway looking for adventure, and found each other. They settle among the Heechee on Forested Planet of Warm Old Star Twenty-Four, never suspecting that they may be the last best hope to save the galaxy. But with allies like Gelle-Klara Moynlin (one of the galaxy´s richest women, who isn´t content to just have money, but wants to use her wealth for good) and machine mind Marc Antony (a wonderful chef to thousands of living and stored clients), they are destined t... 1.

To state that, in a globalizing world, cooperation across cultures is needed to bring about prosperity and mutual gain seems self-evident. In the context of global value creation we need to think and act across borders. However, what exactly might form the basis and success factors of such cooperation? And what does this imply for leadership strategies? At the annual Transcultural Leadership Summit at the Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany, these topics are tackled in depth. This publication assembles the contributions of various speakers at the Summit held in 2017, following the Summit´s title ´´Learning about Sub-Saharan Africa´´ and continuing some of the key reflections and discussions raised throughout the event. Considering current developments, including the worldwide reach of value chains and political and societal initiatives, Sub-Saharan Africa has high potential for being the next hub of globalization. Global value creation opens up new opportunities, not only in terms of the development of countries individually, but also in terms of cross-border cooperation and transcultural processes in business and society - this is what the title ´´Learning about Sub-Saharan Africa´´ is all about. Exchanging ideas about successful cooperation between Sub-Saharan Africa and Germany, telling success stories, learning from each other, being creative and open-minded - all these are features that lie at the core of the concept of transculturality. This book aims to contribute to this endeavour. Contents I.
