The first great fantasy novel ever written. J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis are but successors to William Morris. Tale of quest, adventure, magic and war set in an invented age and in the invented world of the author's own imagination. Lots of very old-fashioned archaic English.
Prophetic, satirical and disturbing Sci-Fi from the author who mostly known for inventing the word "robot". Also known as "War With The Newts". This is truly visionary book especially with Genetic Revolution coming nearer and nearer every day.
A famous scientist, a young research zoologist, an American engineer, descend to the murky depths of the ocean. There, Horror rising from a black abyss severs their lifelines. As guest-prisoners they taste the desperate, dangerous life of a strange underwater community.
This is very offhand translation of Alexandre Dumas version of Nutcracker legend. Dumas himself was very cavalier with Hoffman's original gothic horror so he should not complain that someone done the same to his own book. Result is a very good children fairytale.
