Amusing concept, it doesn't really go anywhere but it's a fun short story if you like 50's fiction.
In the future science has banished war and there's enough food to support everyone. As a result the world is intolerably overpopulated. Clearly a harsh solution is in the offing but unfortunately it's so improbable that it waters the story down a lot. Still worth a read though, the way the dissenters are represented by the media and the methods of public coercion may feel disturbingly familiar to the modern reader.
This book describes England returning to the wild in a beautiful way. It's clear a lot of thought went into the setting and it really is convincing. I didn't find the actual story that engaging but the main character is interesting and the fantastic scenery and setting kept me reading.
Interesting short story about a man who undergoes an operation to make himself immortal at the expense of his emotions.
This story is rushed and you get the feeling the author would rather have been writing about life on the river than flying saucers because the sci-fi element is minimal and presented with no enthusiasm at all.
The earth passes into a nebula that causes massive flooding, only one odd genius knows what's going to happen and does his best to warn people and build an ark to save himself and as many people as he can. Great reading for a rainy night!
I picked this book up because B Chons review of it appeared on the recent reviews page and it sounded interesting. It sat on my PDA for a while unread but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. What I'm trying to say is even if you've no interest in Atlantis give this book a try, you might find yourself caught up in the mystery.
This is quite a good book once you get past the first chapter which is repetitive and full of questions. I'm glad I carried on reading it though because it does have some good information. Shame the illustrations aren't included, some of the examples are a bit hard to follow based on the text which replaces them.
