Star Maker

by Olaf Stapledon

A truly wonderful book, full of interesting ideas and speculations! I can think of no science fiction story that reaches quite as far as this one does.

The Tale of Timothy Turtle

by Arthur Scott Bailey

Funny review, Greg Homer. It's almost too bad it isn't true. Politically, the author was a Republican of the old school. If he had had any axe to grind, it would have been *against* Socialism, not for it.

Actually, it's a nice little, naturalistic sort of tale for children, much in the style of Thornton Burgess' books. Not only could I not find any propaganda, I couldn't find much in the way of a moral, either. But it's still rather enjoyable.

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

by H.P. Lovecraft

Unlike most of Lovecraft's stories, this is less horror than it is an adventure of dark fantasy. You might call it a nightmare, but it really does have a plot--a quest--and a certain internal consistency that holds it all together. My only real complaint is that it is all too short--you're left wanting to go back and explore more of this dark dreamscape.

Alice in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

This is not the classic book by Lewis Carroll that you're looking for. This is a rewrite by JC Gorham, the story re-told in words of one syllable. Look for "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" instead. That's the one you want.
