Odd John

By Stapledon, Olaf

This book is a part of the Easton Press Masterpiece of Science Fiction Collection, bound in leather with gilded pages and cover and is in As New condition. Illustration by Wendy Snow-Lang. "Odd John is a novel for everyone who ever felt out of place in their social situation, and it is a novel about what can be done to make society better. At the same time, it is a novel of individual characters striving to cope with difficult circumstances, and a group of super-humans who eventually find themselves besieged by the rest of humanity. How they arrive there and what they do is what the novel is about; It is the ideal science fiction combination: narrative excitement and intellectual stimulation. This is not simply a story about an underdog; John is tragically flawed in ways that are important to Stapledon. Readers will not put this novel down unchanged."

Terminal Experiment, The

By Sawyer, Robert J.

This book is apart of the Easton Press Masterpieces of Science Fiction Collection, in As New condition, leather bound with gilded pages and cover. Illustration by Kent Bash. "The Terminal Experiment is a prime example of Sawyer's bold approach. It dives into one controversial question after another: the moment of death; whether bodies are really dead when their organs are harvested; the reasons people age and the possibilities of immortality; scientific proof of the soul; the moment when the soul leaves (and enters) the body; whether animals have souls, including humanity's closest relative, monkeys; the possibilities of downloading human personalities into computers; and the philosophical and social implications of all those developments - all wrapped a murder mystery and surrounded by adult human relationships. Sawyer is fearless, and has the ability to carry it off- and bring it all to a satisfying resolution.
