Triplanetary
Triplanetary
by E.E."Doc" Smith
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Space Opera, Great Alien races, great characters and a great story, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Triplanetary (Paperback)
The First in E. E. Doc Lensman Series, a superb tale of an Earth evolving and Two Immensely powerful Alien races The Edorians and The Arisians one trying to evolve the universe and the other wanting chaos and disorder in the universe, each having immense mental powers, one trying to evolve human kind to become ultimately the gaurdians of the universe by way of the Lens given only to special individuals evolved through a bloodline to lead and become lensman. Many Planets, many weird and wonderful races, many Battles. Doc was not great on the science behind his stories, but more than makes up with great Stories and adventures, l grew up on this SF and Doc is regarded by many authors who genuinely are greats as one of the best originators of Space Opera, read them all, you won't be disappointed then later you can write a rambling review like this one.

Night Side of Nature, or Ghosts and Ghost-seers (The Colin Wilson library of the paranormal)
by Catherine Crowe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars but the book only reflects great research and a thorough understanding of all things Supernatural, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb reference, many case studies, very well researched especially as the events were close to her time frame, as apposed to now being over a hundred or so years past. She is a one off character, and sadly took her own life later on, but the book only reflects great research and a thorough understanding of all things Supernatural.. 5 Stars.

I am a E. E. Doc nut so l will buy everything about him or by him but a good reference guide designed for fans only, and only a reference guide but an essential and exhaustive one.

World's Greatest - Mystery, Intrigue & Suspense
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Case Studies, Immensely entertaining, lots of bang for your bucks., 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read many books such as this, l bought the paperback and loved it so much l ordered the hardback, but mainly due to the fact the photographs were not great quality due to cheap paper, l assume the hardback has a better quality outlay, but a great book to read, many case studies l have not read before and it covers a wide range of topics, which occasionally overlap but l can forgive that, you must buy and read it great entertainment and knowledge whether you are a believer or not.

I love Hogan but this book is a sure fire rambler, and a bit confusing, it continues the tale of, but as the psychedelic cover suggests a bit out there


Tarot
Tarot
by Piers Anthony
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars SF wrapped up in Fantasy. History, Occult, Adventure, Mystery, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tarot (Paperback)
This is not your common garden book. Its best read in its Trilogy form to avoid unessessary distraction, some readers may have issues with Occult and tarot references if so by another book. If you have an open mind come in and discover rich landscapes, intriguing characters, and lots of historical and religious machinations, described superbly, it's a book to expand your horizons and maybe educate you, but above all its a great SF book with Fantasy abound
