Ignatius J Reilly is fat, flatulent, eloquent and almost unemployable. By the standards of ordinary folk he is pretty much unhinged, too. But is he bothered by this? No. For this misanthropic crusader against an America fallen into vice and ignorance has a mission: to rescue a naked female philosopher in distress.

Before The Matrix , before Star Wars , before Ender's Game and Neuromancer , there was Dune : winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Melange, or 'spice', is the most valuable - and rarest - element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person's life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis. Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe. When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis from the noble House Harkonnen to House Atreides, the Harkonnens fight back, murdering Duke Leto Atreides. Paul, his son, and Lady Jessica, his concubine, flee into the desert. On the point of death, they are rescued by a band for Fremen, the native people of Arrakis, who control Arrakis' second great resource: the giant worms that burrow beneath the burning desert sands. In order to avenge his father and retake Arrakis from the Harkonnens, Paul must earn the trust of the Fremen and lead a tiny army against the innumerable forces aligned against them. And his journey will change the universe.
«Rome aurait-elle été la plus belle ville du monde si, en même temps, elle n'était pas la plus laide ville du monde?» Une partie de ballon, un vendeur de marrons, une conversation à la terrasse d'un café, le marché de la Porta Portese le dimanche matin, mais aussi le vol à l'étalage, la misère et la mort - ville de contrastes, Rome offre à Pasolini un décor étonnant pour ces quatorze nouvelles savoureuses et poétiques.
First published in 1953, this is Bradbury's prophetic dystopian vision of a weird but too distant future where happiness is allocated on a four-walled TV screen, where individuals, eccentrics and scholars are outcasts of society and where books are burnt by a special task-force.

Set on a hot London day in June 1923, Mrs Dalloway explores both the raw hold of the past and the brighter potential of the future. Clarissa Dalloway is the wife of an MP and an assured socialite, yet as she prepares for her party the links between her and the shell-shocked Septimus Warren Smith become ever more apparent. Mrs Dalloway is a book that is both highly experimental and deeply involving, deftly impressionistic yet firmly embedded in the crowded world of London. This new edition based on original research offers fresh insights into the context and meanings of one of Woolf's most popular and enduring works.
Including brand-new paintings, this is a fully illustrated new edition of the forerunner to The Lord of the Rings . The Silmarillion fills in the background which lies behind the more popular work, and gives the earlier history of Middle-earth, introducing some of the key characters.
The Silmarillion is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien''s imaginative writing, a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth, through the Second Age and the rise of Sauron, to the end of the War of the Ring.
They are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-earth, and the Elves made war upon him in his impenetrable fortress in Angband for the recovery of the Silmarils, three jewels containing the last remaining pure light of Valinor, seized by Morgoth and set in his iron crown.
Accompanying these tales are several shorter works. The Ainulindale is a myth of the Creation and in the Valaquenta the nature and powers of the gods is described. The Akallabeth recounts the downfall of the great island kingdom of Numenor at the end of the Second Age and Of the Rings of Power tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age, as told in The Lord of the Rings .
Tolkien could not publish The Silmarillion in his lifetime, as it grew with him, so he would leave it to his son, Christopher, to edit the work from many manuscripts and bring his father''s great vision to publishable form, so completing the literary achievement of a lifetime. This special edition presents anew this seminal first step towards mapping out the posthumous publishing of Middle-earth, and the beginning of an illustrious forty years and more than twenty books celebrating his father''s legacy.
Also included is a letter by J.R.R. Tolkien written in 1951 which provides a brilliant exposition of the earlier Ages, and almost 50 full-colour paintings by Ted Nasmith, including some which appear here for the first time.
Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent. Harbouring an unnatural desire for solitude, and a perverse distaste for the pleasures of compulsory promiscuity, Bernard has an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress-Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Born in East Africa, Yusuf has few qualms about the journey he is to make. It never occurs to him to ask why he is accompanying Uncle Aziz or why the trip has been organised so suddenly, and he does not think to ask when he will be returning. But the truth is that his ''uncle'' is a rich and powerful merchant and Yusuf has been pawned to him to pay his father''s debts. Paradise is a rich tapestry of myth, dreams and Biblical and Koranic tradition, the story of a young boy''s coming of age against the backdrop of an Africa increasingly corrupted by colonialism and violence.
Created in collaboration with the estate of Jim Morrison and inspired by a posthumously discovered list written by Morrison entitled "Plan for Book," The Collected Works of Jim Morrison is a landmark publication featuring both published and unpublished poems, prose, and lyrics and more than 200 personal color and black-and-white photographs, drawings, journal excerpts, notes and lyrics in his own hand; plus a bound-in 16-page facsimile pamphlet of one of Morrison''s self-published poems and a transcript of a poetry reading recorded on what would be his final birthday. "Morrison wrote that ''we had a great visitation of energy,'' proclaimed that ''the ancient ones'' time has come again,'' urged readers to ''enter again the sweet forest/enter the hot dream.'' While he deliberately drove down toad-squirmy backroads of primal terror, ecstasy was often naked in the shotgun seat, spinning jeweled pinwheels, peeling a peach."--Tom Robbins, from his foreword, "Fireflies of the Apocalypse" Jim Morrison was thrust into what he considered accidental stardom in the 1960s as the lead vocalist of The Doors. Fifty years after his passing his legend endures, inspiring legions of fans and musicians. But this electrifying performer who lit the world on fire considered himself foremost a writer, a talent brilliantly demonstrated in his vast output of poetry and song lyrics. The Collected Works of Jim Morrison is the book Jim Morrison wanted to publish. This definitive opus of his creative output--designed by the renowned firm Pentagram--includes verse and prose poems; never-before-seen personal journal entries written in Morrison''s own hand, drawings, unpublished work, revisions of previously published poetry, transcripts, published and unpublished song lyrics, and more. Accompanying them is the transcript of The Village Recorder tapes--the selection of poems Morrison recorded on his birthday on December 8, 1970. This remarkable collector''s item includes: Foreword by Tom Robbins Introduction by Anne Morrison Chewning Published Poems and Writings: Pony Express; Horse Latitudes; Eyes; The Anatomy of Rock; The Celebration of the Lizard; Dry Water Self-Published Poems and Writings: The New Creatures; The Lords: Notes on Vision; An American Prayer; Ode to LA While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased Selections from Notebooks, Journals, and Loose Pages: The American Night; Tape Noon; Miami Trial Notebooks; the Paris Journal; Notebook and Journal Poems; Loose Page Poems Poetry Recording Transcripts: The Elektra Tapes; The Village Recorder Tapes Film Treatment: The Hitchhiker Published and Unpublished Song Lyrics Epilogue: As I Look Back An array of images from the Morrison archive--family photographs; candid pictures in the recording studio, on the road, both on stage and off; sketches and drawings; stills from Morrison''s never-released film HWY. Handwritten materials--excerpts from the numerous journals Morrison kept, including the notebook he wrote in while on trial in Miami and from his final days in Paris, as well as various excerpts, single pages, loose notes, and lyrics.
