    Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English witer, now best remembered for his science fiction novels, and is often credited as being the father of science fiction."Aepyornis Island" is the strange tale of a naturalist who find himself adrift in a canoe in the Indian Ocean, with three mysterious rare giant eggs which he has collected. He knows they are the eggs of the Aepyornis - a bird which has been extinct for hundreds of years. He is amazed when hunger forces him to try one of the eggs, to find that it is fresh. When he opens the second egg several days later, he is horrified to find a still live embryo inside it. Before he is forced to eat the third and final egg, his canoe is cast up on a deserted atoll, where he finds fresh water and plenty of fish in the lagoon. Then the final egg hatches and the strangest part of the adventure begins.

    Bleak House (Diversion Classics)

    Considered by many to be Dickens’ best work, Bleak House focuses its gaze on the British legal system, and does not flinch.
    
    A distinctly dissimilar cast of characters find their worlds intertwined by two things: a legal case, Jarndyce and Jarndyce, which has lasted so long that at least one generation of the Jarndyce family has expired since its start, and the thick fog that seems to hang over both the case and their entire lives.
    
    Brilliantly divided into two strands of narration, one the voice of orphan Esther Summerson, and one an omniscient narrator picking up the thread of haughty Lady Dedlock’s life, Dickens seamlessly draws us into the worlds of the aristocracy all the way down to the poorest of London slums.
    
    Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, this Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft, better known as H.P. Lovecraft, was an American author of horror, fantasy, poetry and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction and many feel he is the acknowledged master of creepy, weird and unsettling stories. 
    These are seven stories by Lovecraft that literally span his career; some being written when he was barely a teenager and one (The Shunned House) only published after he had died. Most were published in Weird Tales before 1922. 
    Each story is unique and strange in it's own way but all of them come from the same mind that gave us the Cult of Cthulhu and other wonderful tales that generations now have enjoyed for their strangeness that resonates with our own inner fears. Some of these stories explore the depths of the human mind others the depths of human degradation and creepiness. I won't ruin the suspense by telling you which is which. Enjoy.
