Generation of vipers by Philip Wylie( Book )

63 editions published between 1942 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most vitriolic attack ever launched on the American way of living - from politicians to professors to businessmen to Mom to sexual mores to religion - Generation of Vipers ranks with the works of De Tocqueville and Emerson in defining the American character and malaise. Wylie's classic, written with devastating wit and a pen as sharp as a barber's razor, wages war on all forms of American hypocrisy. Remarkably, or perhaps not so, what Philip Wylie has to say rings as true today as when he first wrote Vipers, and no doubt it will continue to offend and outrage both the Left and Right. Harsh, bitter, and filled with venom toward those who have corrupted the America that "could have been," Generation of Vipers will be read with pleasure and indignation a century from now."--Jacket

In The End of the Dream, venerated science-fiction author Philip Wylie trains his sights on the ultimate catastrophe-the destruction of the world through human beings' unheeding and willful poisoning of the atmosphere, the land, the seas and rivers, and finally of the human race itself.

Gladiator by Philip Wylie( Book )

32 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thanks to his father's genetic experiments, Hugo Danner is born with superhuman levels of strength, speed, and intelligence. Hugo feels compelled to conceal his gifts from a suspicious and uncomprehending world, but he doesn't take on an identity as a costumed crusader. Instead, his struggles to find a place in society that will accommodate his extraordinary skills lead to a checkered career as a boardwalk strongman, Foreign Legionnaire, politician, and archeologist. Gladiator, first published in 1930, preceded Superman's debut by eight years and formed the archetypes further developed in subsequent superhero comics and literature. Fans of comics, graphic novels, science-fiction, and fantasy literature will be captivated by this timeless tale of an outsider's search for acceptance and fulfillment. Introduction by Gerard Jones, author of Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book

17 editions published between 1949 and 2012 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The events in Opus 21 takes place over a three-day weekend, when the character Philip Wylie is in New York to have a biopsy taken of a possibly malignant growth he's discovered in his throat. The novel begins on Friday and ends on Monday with his growth diagnosed as a benign anomaly. Wylie spends most of his time at his hotel, trying to cut down a serial he's written for a magazine, as he's interrupted numerous times by several characters whose lives he becomes entangled in. The author does a lot of pontificating about life, the end of the world, etc... Wylie wages his own guerilla warfare against some of our most cherished beliefs about life, love, lust, sex, and civilization. --Peter L. Winkler at &
