Quirk Classics/ Science Fiction & Fantasy Books
Android Karenina - Quirk Classics has come out with yet another great literary parody. This time author Ben H. Winters teams up with literary great Leo Tolstoy for the science fiction masterpiece Android Karenina.
Dawn of the Dreadfuls - The book opens during a funeral. The corpse just doesnít behave as a corpse should. Instead of staying in the coffin, waiting to be put in the ground and decay, he rises up out of it, emitting an unearthly howl. Needless to say, the funeral comes to a dead halt. This is just the beginning.
Dreadfully Ever After - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After, by Steve Hockensmith, is the third book in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombie series from Quirk Classics. It is a thrilling, action-packed, hilarious conclusion to the Pride and Prejudice and Zombie series.
The Meowmorphosis - Quirk Classics, famous for giving new life to older, superior works of fiction, has done it again. "The Metamorphosis", by Franz Kafka, has now been transformed into The Meowmorphosis.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - The vivid descriptions and unique similes in "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" filled the mind of this reader with vivid images. Some brought laughter, while others brought shivers of suspense. Ransom Riggs has successfully combined vintage photographs with an electrifying story.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a classic much improved by the addition of zombies, was written by Jane Austen and co-authored by Seth Grahame-Smith. I tried to read the original by Ms. Austen, but never could make it very far.
Other Science Fiction/Fantasy Books
The Crystal Cave - "The Crystal Cave", by Mary Stewart, is the first of four books about the legend of Merlin and King Arthur. A stunning historical fiction novel, The Crystal Cave introduces us to Merlin as a young boy, as a child who likes to be alone in the dark.
The Hollow Hills - The Hollow Hills, written by Mary Stewart, is the second in the series of books about Merlin.
The Last Enchantment - The Last Enchantment, by Mary Stewart, is the third book in the Arthurian saga. These books just keep getting better and better. Not able to stop at the second book in the series, I purchased a copy The Last Enchantment myself. So much happens in this exciting book. I will try to give just the highlights without giving too much away.
Mystery of Everyman's Way - Mystery of Everymanís Way sounded as though it would be exciting. It was supposed to be full of twists and turns that would keep me on the edge of my seat. My excitement about reading this particular book soon withered away to boredom when I found the story impossible to follow or understand.
