Great Short Works of Mark Twain
by Samuel Langhorne Clemens, Mark Twain
An affordable introduction to the prose of Mark Twain. Good reading and good pickings from one of our favorite quotable authors.
by Carl Sagan
This book is based on the television series that so touched my life as a child. Let science and logic invade your life as it has so many others under the wonderful tutelage of the late Carl Sagan.
by Carl Sagan
As with many good books, I found the ending disturbing and comforting at the same time. If you've seen the movie, you definitely need to see the book because the movie left a lot out.

The Complete Tales and Poems
by Edgar Allan Poe
Treat yourself to the work of this great man. My favorites are The Cask of Amontillado (perfect revenge story), The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar (Can hypnotism prevent you from dying? Find out here), and Berenice (not only premature burial, but also a tooth obsession). Read on and enjoy!
Of Human Bondage
by W. Somerset Maugham
"Money is like a sixth sense without which you cannot make a complete use of the other five." This and other quotations from our collections are found in this classic book of destructive obsession and redemption.
