    Synopsis
    'The Island of Dr. Moreau': While on a voyage in a small ship, Edward Prendick makes the mistake of sticking up for a deformed man that the sailors are tormenting. The result is that he is thrown off the ship when the man reaches his destination - an uncharted island. He is reluctantly rescued by the two scientists using the island for experiments. Prendick discovers that they are attempting to 'humanize' various beasts and the hideous results of their experiments freely roam the island. Prendick's arrival upsets the delicate peace between them and the 'animal-men' with catastrophic results. 'The Country of the Blind': In this famous fantasy story, a mountain climber falls into a strange and isolated society of non-seeing persons - claiming to have been in existence for 15 generations and cut off from the rest of the world by an earthquake. The interloper decides quickly that 'In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.' However, things turn out very differently than he had planned. The experience of being an 'other' - a seeing man in a world of blind persons - is the major theme of this story. 'The Crystal Egg': In this short story, Mr. Cave, a shop owner, finds a strange crystal egg that serves as a window into a Martian landscape. The War of the Worlds was probably H. G. Wells' best-known work, but this brief tale indicates that he had more than a passing interest in Mars. The artifact that the title refers to would not seem too extraordinary today, but this brilliant prediction of robotic planetary exploration seemed fantastic in the early 20th century.

    Synopsis
    In 1949, eight years after the 'Peace with Honor' was negotiated between Great Britain and Nazi Germany by the Farthing Set, England has completed its slide into fascist dictatorship. Then a bomb explodes in a London suburb. The brilliant but politically compromised Inspector Carmichael of Scotland Yard is assigned the case. What he finds leads him to a conspiracy of peers and communists, of staunch king-and-country patriots and hardened IRA gunmen, to murder Britain's prime minister and his new ally, Adolf Hitler. Against a background of increasing domestic espionage and the suppression of Jews and homosexuals, an ad-hoc band of idealists and conservatives blackmail the one person they need to complete their plot, an actress who lives for her art and holds the key to the fuhrer's death. From the ha'penny seats in the theatre to the ha'pennies that cover dead men's eyes, the conspiracy and the investigation swirl around one another, spinning beyond anyone's control. In this brilliant companion to Farthing, Welsh-born World Fantasy Award-winner Jo Walton continues her alternate history of an England that could have been with a novel that is both an homage of the classic detective novels of the 30s and 40s and an allegory of the world we live in today.

    Synopsis
    Jürgen Habermas is the most renowned living German philosopher. This book aims to give a clear and readable overview of his philosophical work. It analyzes both the theoretical underpinnings of Habermas's social theory, and its more concrete applications in the fields of ethics, politics, and law. Finally, it examines how Habermas' social and political theory informs his writing on real, current political and social problems. The author explores Habermas's influence on a wide variety of fields - including philosophy, political and social theory, cultural studies, sociology, and literary studies. He uses a problem-based approach to explain how Habermas' ideas can be applied to actual social and political situations. The book also includes a glossary of technical terms to further acquaint the reader with Habermas' philosophy. Unlike other writing on Habermas, this introduction is accessibly written and explains his intellectual framework and technical vocabulary, rather than simply adopting it.

    Synopsis
    Originally published in 1994, this book was a fly-fishing phenomenon in the way Howell Raines' Fly Fishing Through the Mid-Life Crisis was. Taking his fishing hobby to near metaphysical levels, Ted Leeson tells about his passions: rivers, trout, and fly fishing. With wry humor and rare insight, he explores questions that engage most fishermen: What is it about rivers that draws us so irresistibly, and why does fly fishing seem such an aptly suited response? Above all, The Habit of Rivers is about ways of seeing the wonderfully textured world that emanates from a river.

    Synopsis
    Eco-Breeder or Satan's Scientist? A nightclub fire claims 53 lives, including that of Dr. Hannah Strindberg, a scientist who runs the secretive Breedhaven project on a remote island near the US-Canada international border. The nightclub fire proves to be arson. US Fish and Wildlife Undercover Agent Venus Diamond suspects the target was Dr. Strindberg. Strindberg's breakthrough work in the harvesting, freezing, and cloning of embryos of endangered species has earned the admiration of her benefactors, and the ire of more than a few detractors. Would the arsonist strike again, perhaps next time setting fire to Dr. Strindberg's private habitat on Helix Island, the paradise where the murdered scientist rescued species that even now thrive and multiply? The controversial Breedhaven project has many detractors; its vision of saving endangered species seems foolhardy, even perhaps 'tinkering with God's Plan,' at least in the minds of Dr. Strindberg's enemies. Is an angry proponent of 'Intelligent Design' behind the murder of Dr. Strindberg and the other nightclub arson victims? Dr. Strindberg's valuable lifesaving work may well continue…but only if Venus accepts an adventure that will alter her life—personal and professional—and not before the murderer strikes again.

    Synopsis
    This is the story of a place that never was: the kingdom of Prester John, the utopia described by an anonymous, twelfth-century document which captured the imagination of the medieval world and drove hundreds of lost souls to seek out its secrets, inspiring explorers, missionaries, and kings for centuries. But what if it were all true? What if there was such a place, and a poor, broken priest once stumbled past its borders, discovering, not a Christian paradise, but a country where everything is possible, immortality is easily had, and the Western world is nothing but a dim and distant dream? Brother Hiob of Luzerne, on missionary work in the Himalayan wilderness on the eve of the eighteenth century, discovers a village guarding a miraculous tree whose branches sprout books instead of fruit. These strange books chronicle the history of the kingdom of Prester John, and Hiob becomes obsessed with the tales they tell. The Habitation of the Blessed recounts the fragmented narratives found within these living volumes, revealing the life of a priest named John, and his rise to power in this country of impossible richness. John’s tale weaves together with the confessions of his wife Hagia, a blemmye — a headless creature who carried her face on her chest — as well as the tender, jeweled nursery stories of Imtithal, nanny to the royal family.

    Synopsis
    Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier’s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep Beth from being tricked into a motor- cycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well. The story that Alexandra Adornetto built in her New York Times–bestselling debut, Halo, comes alive in action-packed and unexpected ways, as angels battle demons, and the power of love is put to the test. Something happened — something I could never have imagined. It was so unfathomable, I felt nothing but a sickening feeling that seemed to come from my core and spread like poison through my body. The highway defied gravity and suddenly reared up in front of us. A deep jagged crack appeared in its center. The highway was splitting open. The crack widened like a hungry cavernous mouth, waiting to swallow us up. The wind that whipped my face grew warmer, and steam rose from the broken asphalt. I knew instinctively what it was from the feeling of hollow emptiness that emanated from it. It was a gateway to Hell, and we were heading straight toward it.
