The Best H. G. Wells Novels

Jude Cowell:

Fascinating!

10 classic books written by the master of science fiction, H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells (1866-1946) wrote dozens of books over the course of his literary career, a career which spanned over half a century. But what are the best books by H. G. Wells? As well as writing many classic works of science fiction, Wells also wrote non-fiction as well as many popular realist novels such as Kipps and The History of Mr Polly. But in this list of his best novels we’ve confined ourselves to the pick of his science fiction, since it’s for his science fiction that Wells is best remembered. As ever with our lists, we’ll start at number 10 and work our way up to what is, in our opinion, the best H. G. Wells novel of all…

So asks a new very generous, fantastic review for Martuk … the Holy: Proseuche.

Here’s a small excerpt:

Author Jonathan Winn ups the ante with this epic dark fantasy sequel that continues to span the ages. Proseuche does what a sequel should: it creatively expands every facet of the tale, yet does not merely exploit the success of the first book. It definitely stands on its own, and brings more depth, more emotions to the fore, enriching the overall arch. History is written by the winners, but that’s not the case here. Martuk knows all too well that the truth doesn’t set you free, it makes you free. Prepare to have your imagination stretched in this new and fresh take on humanity and what lurks behind the curtain we call reality.

You can read the rest here.

Gotta say there’s no better way to start the day than…

The 12th House as a Vocational Indicator

12th house insights from expert astrologer #DonnaCunningham!

 I’m going to go out on a limb here. It won’t be the first time, and it won’t be the last. I’m something of a regular there.

If we were studying astrology in the 14th century or up to a thousand years before that, the 12th would be listed as one of the career houses. Planets placed there can show a vocation in the original sense of the word—a calling. It’s not something you chose, but instead something that chooses you and that you wind up devoting your life to.

Freemasonry’s mysterious symbols and rituals were developed in secret in Kilwinning, nearly 200 years before the movement was officially founded.

Sun | Apr 25, 2012

by Michael Schofield –

Glasgow – HUNKY historian Ashley Cowie has been taking ScottishSun readers on an Indiana Jones-style adventure all this week.

The TV star — whose worldwide hit telly show Legend Quest hit Britain this week on the satellite channel SyFy — has been unravelling the biggest Scottish mysteries of all time.

Today, in part four of our exclusive series, Ashley goes on a search of Biblical proportions . . .

LOOKING through my binoculars I scanned the countryside for clues to the location of one of the most sacred mountains mentioned in the Bible.

No, I wasn’t in Jerusalem — but the quaint Ayrshire town of Kilwinning.

Now before…

The Best Joseph Conrad Novels

Originally posted on Interesting Literature:

The top ten best Joseph Conrad books, and why you should read them

Joseph Conrad wrote numerous full-length novels, but what were Conrad’s best books? From his debut in 1895, Almayer’s Folly, to his final novel, Suspense (which he left unfinished – aptly, given the novel’s title – upon his death in 1924), Conrad’s fiction is an intriguing blend of difficult prose, exotic locations, adventure and betrayal, and moral and philosophical contemplation. What follows is our pick of the best Joseph Conrad novels which everyone should read, presented in order where number 1 is ‘the best’ (a judgment that is bound to attract disagreement!). We’ve tried to steer clear of ‘spoilers’ per se, and instead offer very general summaries of the principal setup of the books being discussed.
