Inferences from Haunted Houses and Haunted Men

by John Harris

Sounds like good, Victorian nonsense, but we are still experimenting with this stuff, only we don't call it Mesmerism anymore. We call it remote influence.

The Secret Agent

by Joseph Conrad

This is a brilliant work, not only for its depiction of the anarchists and their awe-inspiring Professor, but also in the way the mind of the constabulary is disected.

The Machine Stops

by E.M. Forster

When I first read this story back in 1966 it was unpleasant, but just too damned weird to take seriously. Fast-forward 41 years and surprise--it's coming true! I have friends that I have never seen and I even give short lectures on youtube!

People talk by interphone and webcam.

It will make your hair stand on end, no question about it.

Space Viking

by H. Beam Piper

Political philosophy well masked as a rollicking adventure story. Anyone who thinks that there is something sacred about democracy will get a healthy shock from this book.
