Librivox: Edison's Conquest of Mars by Serviss, Garrett P.Join Now to Follow

Edison's Conquest of Mars, by Garrett P. Serviss, is one of the many science fiction novels published in the nineteenth century. Although science fiction was not at the time thought of as a distinct literary genre, it was a very popular literary form, with almost every fiction magazine regularly publishing science fiction stories and novels. "Edison's Conquest of Mars" was published in 1898 as an unauthorized sequel to H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds, but did not achieve the fame of its predecessor. The book was endorsed by Thomas Edison, the hero of the book -- though not by Wells. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Jules Vernes Roman führt uns in das fiktive Städtchen Quiquendone. Hier ticken die Uhren besonders langsam und es bedarf schon mal Jahrzehnte, bevor der Stadtrat eine Entscheidung fällt. Als Doctor Ox auftaucht, eine stadtweite Beleutungsanlage installieren, und auch die Kosten hierzu größtenteils übernehmen will, billigt der Stadrat das Vorhaben erstaunlich schnell. Aber ist dieser Doctor Ox nun wirklich so ein uneigennütziger Mensch, oder führt er nicht doch irgendetwas im Schilde? . (Summary by Wassermann)

Librivox: Siddhartha by Hesse, HermannJoin Now to Follow

Siddhartha is one of the great philosophical novels. Profoundly insightful, it is also a beautifully written story that begins as Siddhartha, son of an Indian Brahman, leaves his family and begins a lifelong journey towards Enlightenment. On the way he faces the entire range of human experience and emotion: he lives with ascetics, meets Gotama the Buddha, learns the art of love from Kamala the courtesan, and is transformed by the simple philosophy of the ferryman Vasudeva whose wisdom comes not from learned teachings but from observing the River. Herman Hesse (1877-1962) was a German-Swiss novelist, poet, and painter. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1946.
