The Silmarillion by J. R. R Tolkien( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in Swedish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "Majestic! Readers of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings will find The Silmarillion a cosmology to call their own medieval romances, fierce fairy tales and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury it overwhelms the reader." Those interested in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth should not be without this grand volume that tells the tragic tale of the struggle for control of the Silmarils, a struggle that would determine the history of the world long before the War of the Ring

KING-KLASSIKER I NYUTGÅVA”Skräcken som inte skulle upphöra förrän tjugoåtta år senare – om den nu någonsin upphörde – började, såvitt jag vet och kan berätta, med en båt gjord av en tidningssida som seglade fram i en rännsten som nästan svämmade över efter allt regnandet.”Den lilla staden Derry i Maine ser ut som den typiska amerikanska småstaden trygg och sömnig med sina villaområden, snabbmatsställen och affärer. Men det är bara på ytan. I kloakerna under staden finns något som ligger på lur och iakttar. Där finns ondskan. Där finns Det.En gång på femtiotalet samlade ett kompisgäng sina krafter och trotsade Det. Förenade av känslan av att vara misslyckade och utstötta, lyckades de driva ondskan och skräcken tillbaka till de mörka djup där den hör hemma. De lovar sedan varandra att samlas igen om Det någon gång skulle komma tillbaka.Många år senare, när en serie ohyggliga mord och gåtfulla försvinnanden på nytt skakar Derry, lyfter så Mike Hanlon telefonluren och kallar på sina barndomskamrater. Alla lämnar sina hem och familjer, sina vardagsbestyr och karriärer, för att ännu en gång trotsa skräcken och möta Det.”En fantastisk bok, en milstolpe i den amerikanska litteraturen.” CHICAGO SUN-TIMES Omslagsformgivare: Nebojsa Zoric [Elib]

The female eunuch by Germaine Greer( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in Swedish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Germaine Greer takes aim at the subject of women: their cultural history, their psychological development, and their relationship to men. And what she puts forward as her central thesis is the original and provocative idea that as wives, employees, mothers, and lovers, women are not only still in bondage to men, but are deformed by them--made into eunuchs. It is not that Greer is against men (she likes them very much), or that she thinks women should take to violent action to secure their rights, but rather that every woman must come to know herself: her body and her mind. Women must also learn, she argues, their own histories and must learn to share their experiences with one another until they understand, identify, and explicitly come to terms with the many psychological techniques of domination in and out of the home.--From publisher description

Anarkisten by Joseph Conrad( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in Swedish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"När mr Verloc gick ut på morgonen överlämnade han nominellt sin butik i svågerns händer."I slutet av 1800-talet genomförde en grupp anarkister ett bombattentat mot Greenwichobservatoriet utanför London. Den händelsen utgör den yttre handlingen i Anarkisten (1907). Men romanens egentliga handling är kollisionen mellan två helt olika livsnormer. Verloc, anarkisten och provokatören, lever ett stilla familjeliv och hans hustru vet ingenting om hans politiska verksamhet. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) hade under 1880-talet mönstrat på ångaren Vidar som förste styrman. Vidar lastade rotting, gummi och kryddor utmed floden Pantai på östra Borneo. Från denna miljö hämtade Conrad motiv till sina tidigaste romaner. [Elib]

Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim. That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.' Enter - if you can bear it - the extraordinary private world of Frank, just sixteen, and unconventional, to say the least. (Back cover)
