The Last Days of Earth

by George C. Wallis

An interesting plot spin on the End of Earth. However, the end of the story isn't handled well, and it just kind of flops.

Last Enemy

by H. Beam Piper

I found this story very hard to follow at first. The author kind of throws a couple of different story lines together at once, seemingly abandoning one altogether until it crops back up and meshes later on. I never did think anything flowed smoothly. Besides all that, it is a somewhat interesting read, though the idea of reincarnation is just plain stupid and the emphasis on it draws away from enjoyment of the book.

The Land That Time Forgot

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

I was hesitant to even try this book because it's obviously one of the old adventure type stories that are often terribly boring. This one, however, is not quite as bad as most. I highly recommend skipping the first three chapters, though, as they are completely unnecessary - and boring.

This is the tired old plot of "Journey to the Center of the Earth", with very little twist. It becomes somewhat interesting as the chapters progress, but then abruptly ends as if the author had no idea where to go with it. The central idea of the story - mysterious evolution of the land's inhabitants - is hinted at strongly but never explained. The journey is never completed. The excitement never rises high. Disappointing.

If you're just looking for something to pass the time, this will do. Otherwise, you may avoid a few minutes of precious time by just skipping to something better. How anyone can rate this more than 3 stars is beyond me - there must be some seriously entertainment-deprived people out there.

The Lanson Screen

by Arthur Leo Zagat

This appears to be the work of an amateur. The story is difficult to follow - it switches back and forth between different scenes between paragraphs with no warning. The characters are mere stick figures, and there is no real action or intrigue.

A scientist seals off Manhattan with a wonder shield, and the scientist - the only one with the secret to the shield - dies. Then everyone in Manhattan dies. Sixty years later, another scientist figures out the secret to the shield and shuts it off. End of story. Boring.
