Book Description
LEAP INTO THE FUTURE, AND SHOOT BACK TO THE PAST

H. G. Wells’s seminal short story “The Time Machine,” published in 1895, provided the springboard for modern science fiction’s time travel explosion. Responding to their own fascination with the subject, the greatest visionary writers of the twentieth century penned some of their finest stories. Here are eighteen of the most exciting tales ever told, including

“Time’s Arrow” In Arthur C. Clarke’s classic, two brilliant physicists finally crack the mystery of time travel–with appalling consequences.

Ghosts in Baker Street

Jan 2006
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Pitting the deductive skills of the great rationalist Sherlock Holmes against mysteries that may have an otherworldly source intrigued the detective's creator, as most notably shown by The Hound of the Baskervilles, and has inspired a legion of pastiche writers. This all-original anthology from the distinguished trio of Greenberg, Lellenberg and Stashower is an improvement over a similar volume, Michael Reaves and John Pelan's Shadows over Baker Street (2003), which attempted to combine the sleuth with the eldritch horrors of H.P. Lovecraft. Few of the 10 stories in this follow-up, however, raise even a momentary chill. The highlight, Gillian Linscott's "The Adventure of the Late Orang Outang," captures Conan Doyle's style, even if the mystery is less than baffling. Sherlockians may find the three essays at the...

From Library Journal
Actor Jay O. Sanders provides an acceptable narration of best-selling author Clancy's (Debt of Honor, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/15/94) reactivation of hostilities between the United States and Russia. With widespread crop failures and the sudden death of Boris Yeltsin, the Russian situation is dire at best. Old-school communists see the opportunity to scuttle American relief efforts by launching a terrorist attack in Times Square. Roger Gordian, a U.S. businessman, finds his multinational corporation in peril and takes the initiative to prevent escalation to full-scale war. Sanders's Russian accents are shaky and seem more appropriate to a Rocky and Bullwinkle adventure. Clancy's abridged story is subject to frequent character shifts, and the action is difficult to follow. Libraries may skip this disjointed effort. Not...

Book Review
Like Politika, the first installment in the Tom Clancy's Power Plays series created with Martin Greenberg, ruthless.com offers the international scope and techno-thrills of the Jack Ryan-John Clark novels--but, importantly, without Jack Ryan and John Clark. For many Clancy fans, that means that ruthless.com will be a disappointment. The hero is again Roger Gordian, and Gordian's claim to fame is his ownership of UpLink Communications; he was also the man who struggled (with his Sword security team) to avert a global nuclear war in Politika. This time Gordian's concerns are slightly more modest. As a champion of encryption technology, Gordian has fought the shifting political winds that have tried to deregulate his industry. But now, he faces attacks from within: UpLink is the subject of a hostile takeover bid that...

From School Library Journal
YA-- This collection of fictional sightings creates the potential for a few nightmares a la Stephen King. Each of the eight stories is varied in plot and style, and is guaranteed to raise some hairs on the back of the neck. From ``Miranda,'' who lures unsuspecting Yankee soldiers to her decaying mansion, to the romance of ``The Last Waltz,'' the book will draw readers into the time period of the Civil War. The chilling novella ``Fearful Rock'' includes murderous spirits and corpses leaving their skins to walk the Earth each night. The only drawback is the uninviting cover art. --Paula Hollis Grundset, Pohick Regional Library, Fairfax County, VACopyright 1991 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

Breen provides an overview of 2004's trends and awards. Edward D. Hoch looks at the year's short story collections and anthologies as well as nonfiction works in the field.

One of them, the chilling "Just Pretend" by Martyn Waites, is the gem of the anthology, which includes such name authors as Robert Barnard, Laura Lippman and Jeffery Deaver. The overall quality isn't as strong as some of its five predecessors, but the volume still offers its share of standouts, among them Val McDermid's wryly...

Haunted House: A Collection of Original Stories

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5?Amityville has nothing on The Close at 66 Brown's End. Each story in this spooky collection is set in a different room as a succession of owners encounter otherworldly housemates. In the kitchen, a cursed cook bakes highly unusual biscuits. An invisible puppy cries in the basement. A ghostly electric train runs in the attic. The connecting theme works well, although some readers may wonder why the house changed hands so many times. The short original tales range from chuckles to chillers and are reminiscent of campfire storytelling. Appropriately scary, photoreal black-and-white drawings accompany each selection. With no gratuitous violence or gore, this is a fine alternative to popular horror series.?Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, ILCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. ...
