Summary

Edward Bellamy's 'The Blindman's World' is a seminal work of science fiction that explores the concept of reality and perception. Written in a poignant and thought-provoking style, the book follows the journey of a blind man who gains the ability to see, only to discover that the world he sees may not be as real as he believed. Bellamy's narrative skillfully blurs the lines between fiction and reality, challenging readers to question their own perceptions of the world around them. Set in the late 19th century, the book reflects the author's fascination with the rapid technological advancements of the time and their potential impact on human consciousness. Bellamy's unique blend of philosophical inquiry and social commentary sets 'The Blindman's World' apart as a work that transcends genre boundaries and continues to captivate readers to this day. I highly recommend this novel to anyone interested in exploring the complexities of perception and reality through the lens of science fiction.

    'By turns stomach-churning, tantalising and opulent – these stories confirm Vaught's baroque talents..'
    – Heidi James, author of The Sound Mirror.
    In this dark and toothsome collection, Anna Vaught enters a strange world of apocryphal feasts and disturbing banquets. Famished explores the perils of selfish sensuality and trifle while child rearing, phantom sweetshop owners, the revolting use of sherbet in occult rituals, homicide by seaside rock, and the perversion of Thai Tapas. Once, that is, you've been bled dry from fluted cups by pretty incorporeals and learned about consuming pride in the hungriest of stately homes.
    Famished: seventeen stories to whet your appetite and ruin your dinner.

    After the United States suffers a devastating nuclear attack and is facing food shortages, power outages, cyber and AI assaults, and a wrecked economy, Admiral Dan Lenson leads an allied force assigned to turn the tide of war in the Pacific, using precisely targeted missiles and high-tech weapons systems. But as the campaign begins, the entire Allied military and defense network is compromised by Jade Emperor, a powerful Chinese artificial-intelligence system that seems to anticipate and counter every move. While Dan strives to salvage the battle plan, his wife helps coordinate strategy in DC, Marine sergeant Hector Ramos fights in an invasion of Taiwan, and Navy SEAL master chief Teddy Oberg begins a desperate journey into central China on a mission that may be the only way to save the United States from destruction and defeat. Thrilling, filled with near-future technology, and deeply grounded in the human cost of war, Deep War is a brilliant novel by an acknowledged master of military fiction.

    In this disturbing short story collection, Joyce Carol Oates explores the inner lives of vulnerable girls and women.   Joyce Carol Oates is renowned for her rare ability to “illuminate the mind’s most disturbing corners” (The Seattle Times). That genius is on full display in this collection of seven feverishly unsettling works, DIS MEM BER and Other Stories of Mystery and Suspense.   In the title story, a precocious eleven-year-old named Jill is in thrall to an older male relative, the mysterious, attractive black sheep of the family. Without telling her parents Jill climbs into his sky-blue Chevy to be driven to an uncertain, and unforgettable, fate. In “The Drowned Girl,” a university transfer student becomes increasingly obsessed with the drowning/murder of another female student, as her own sense of self begins to deteriorate. In “Great Blue Heron,” a recent widow grieves inside the confines of her lakefront home and fantasizes about transforming into that great flying predator unerring and pitiless in the hunt. And in the final story, “Welcome to Friendly Skies,” a trusting group of bird-watchers is borne to a remote part of the globe, to a harrowing fate.   At the heart of this meticulously crafted, deeply disquieting collection are girls and women confronting the danger around them, and the danger hidden inside their turbulent selves.
