The shape of things to come by H. G Wells( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Dr Philip Raven, an intellectual working for the League of Nations, dies in 1930 he leaves behind a powerful legacy an unpublished 'dream book'. Inspired by visions he has experienced for many years, it appears to be a book written far into the future: a history of humanity from the date of his death up to 2105. The Shape of Things to Come provides this 'history of the future', an account that was in some ways remarkably prescient - predicting climatic disaster and sweeping cultural changes, including a Second World War, the rise of chemical warfare, and political instabilities in the Middle East. Foretelling an era of war, plague and political chaos, this remains on of the greatest of all works of social prophecy. Part of a brand-new Penguin series of H.G. Wells's works, this edition includes a newly established text, a full biographical essay on Wells, a further reading list and detailed notes. The introduction, by John Clute, explores the political message of the novel and considers the later Wells's growing sense of disillusionment

A voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Voyage to Arcturus is a novel by Scottish writer David Lindsay, first published in 1920. It combines fantasy, philosophy, and science fiction in an exploration of the nature of good and evil and their relationship with existence. Critic and philosopher Colin Wilson described it as the "greatest novel of the twentieth century", and it was a central influence on C. S. Lewis' Space Trilogy. J. R. R. Tolkien said he read the book "with avidity". Clive Barker has stated " A Voyage to Arcturus is a masterpiece" and called it "an extraordinary work . . . quite magnificent." An interstellar voyage is the framework for a narrative of a journey through fantastic landscapes. The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, which, in the novel (but not in reality) is a double star system, consisting of stars Branchspell and Alppain. The lands through which the characters travel represent philosophical systems or states of mind, through which the main character, Maskull, passes on his search for the meaning of life. Maskull, a man longing for adventures, accepts an invitation from Krag, an acquaintance of his friend Nightspore, to travel to Tormance after a seance. The three set off in a crystal ship from an abandoned observatory in Scotland but Maskull awakens to find himself alone on Tormance. In every land he passes through he usually meets only one or two persons; these meetings often (though not always) end in the death of those he meets, either at his own hand or by that of another. He learns of his own impending death, meets Krag again, and dies shortly after learning that he is in fact Nightspore himself. The book concludes with a final revelation from Krag (who claims to be known on Earth as "Pain") to Nightspore about the origin of the Universe. The author turns out to support a variation of the doctrine of the Demiurge, somewhat similar to that propounded by some Gnostics

The disinheriting party : a novel by John Clute( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory Smythe, powerful ship-owning tycoon, manipulates and represses his children, who are the results of various adulterous liaisons, hating them obsessively in his insane need to remain young. It is mainly through the bizarre fantasies of Jocelyn, a daughter, that the plot is revealed in an atmosphere of incest and androgyny and foreboding. Her frantic attempts to maintain a fragile sense of reality (and to retain the affection of her father) directly lead to at least three pointless deaths. And it is under darkening clouds of mania and dissolution that all the players interact and come together in Aspen, Colorado, to perform and witness the final scenes of the "disinheriting party."
