The Philosophy of Despair

by David Starr Jordan

Easy to follow; Jordan raises some excellent points, especially concerning the nature of knowledge and will in despair.

The Centaur

by Algernon Blackwood

Utter nonsense. If you like drivel such as speech being "laughed", you might disagree.

This Crowded Earth

by Robert Bloch

Too much exposition makes for awkward style of writing. Plus many of the assumptions are overly simplistic. Such as assured mutual destruction leads to lasting peace (must have been written before terrorists ran amuck) and people just go on multiplying. Dark and paranoic undertones make for an umpleasant read.

The Red Planet

by William J. Locke

Yeesh. Couldn't get through this one -- the main character goes on and on about how folks who aren't militant pro-war are anti-English, and that the military is great, etc etc. Very strident. And the plot was clunky, and couldn't seem to get started (or focused). So it might be good, but I doubt it... and I'll never bother to find out.
