David Lindsay - A Voyage to Arcturus

A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay

A stunning achievement in speculative fiction, A Voyage to Arcturus has inspired, enchanted, and unsettled readers for decades. It is an epic quest across one of the most unusual and brilliantly depicted alien worlds ever conceived, a profoundly moving journey of discovery into the metaphysical heart of the universe, and a shockingly intimate excursion into what makes us human and unique. After a strange journey, Maskull, a man from Earth, awakens alone in a desert on the planet Tormance, seared by the suns of the binary star Arcturus. As he journeys northward, guided by a drumbeat, he encounters a world and its inhabitants like no other, where gender is a victory won at dear cost; where landscape and emotion are drawn into an accursed dance; where heroes are killed, reborn, and renamed; and where the cosmological lures of Shaping, who may be God, torment Maskull in his astonishing pilgrimage. At the end of his arduous and increasingly mystical quest waits a dark secret and an unforgettable revelation.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - The Parasite

The Parasite - And 35 other stories about the weird and the supernatural

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote more than mysteries and historical novels.

Written in about the same decade as the Sherlock Holmes series, they will convince you that Arthur Conan Doyle was a master of more than just the detective story. In this volume you will find a complete collection of his supernatural short stories.

Kersey Graves - The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors

Khrisna of India. Thammuz of Syria. Esus of the Celtic Druids. Mithra of Persia. Quexalcoati of Mexico. All were crucified gods, and all met their fates hundreds of years before Jesus appeared on the scene. In this foundational work of modern atheism, American spiritualist KERSEY GRAVES (1813-1883) breaks the Christ myth down into its component parts and ably demonstrates how the story of Jesus has its roots in the depths of antiquity. Here you'll read about the surprising prevalence throughout global folklore of:  the miraculous and immaculate conception of the gods, stars that point out the time and place of a savior's birth, angels, shepherds, and magi visiting an infant savior, the 25th of December as the universal birth date of gods, saviors who descend into Hell, and much more. This is essential reading for students of comparative mythology and modern freethinkers.

William Hope Hodgson - The House on the Borderland

The House on the Borderland  by William Hope Hodgson
Have you ever wondered what a place would be like where you were outside of time and space, neither dead nor alive? Where you could observe the mechanisms of the universe and see the death of our planet and sun? Where you could commune with souls of the dead in the black, silent sea of sleep? A manuscript is found: filled with small, precise writing and smelling of pit-water, it tells the story of an old recluse and his strange home - and it’s even stranger, jade-green double, seen by the recluse on an otherworldly plain where gigantic gods and monsters roam. Soon his more earthly home is no less terrible than his bizarre vision, as swine-like creatures boil from a cavern beneath the ground and besiege it. But a still greater horror will face the recluse - more inexorable, merciless and awful than any creature that can be fought or killed.
