Twenty-five years after Donovan's Brain -- now a classic of science fiction -- came a superb new novel from the pen of Curt Siodmak.

Patrick Cory, the biochemist who figures in Donovan's Brain.Cory, the world's leading authority on RNA (ribonucleic aid) the brain substance in which memory is stored -- is approached by the CIA and asked to conduct a weird and dangerous experiment: to remove the RNA from Hauser, a dying German scientist who has defected from the Russians, and inject it into another man in the hope of releasing the German's secrets. At first, Cory is appalled. But Slaughter, the CIA man, has thought of everything -- even to...


Forrest J. Ackerman Presents This Island Earth
Raymond F. Jones

From Library Journal
This title will immediately be recognized by sf heads as the source for the classic 1955 film, which is still considered one of the best of the 1950s B movies, despite being sniped at in the feature film version of the late, great Mystery Science Theater 3000. The 1952 novelization essentially was a collection of the individual episodes serialized in Thrilling Wonder Stories. This edition sports a new intro by legendary horror/sf film maven Forrest J. Ackerman. The book and film differ greatly, so die-hards will have to read it to get the true story. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Incidents of Travel in Yucatan
John Lloyd Stephens

May 1996
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
As director of the Ocean Steam Navigating Company and president of the Panama Railway Company, Stephens (1805-1852) knew a lot about travel, and he wrote about it. His first book, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan, went through 12 printings and earned its author $15,000 in its first three months, making him one of America's first bestselling writers. Edgar Allen Poe called it "perhaps the most interesting book of travel ever published." This more seasoned and focused account of Stephens's second trip, originally published in 1843, is packed with detailed accounts of travels in newly discovered Mayan ruins and with equally fascinating lithographs by his travel companion, Frederick Catherwood. Through Stephens's eyes, readers see Yucatan villages of 150 years ago, when Indians used cacao...
