"Something is murdering my men." Thus reads the message received from a Nazi commander stationed in a small castle high in the remote Transylvanian Alps. And when an elite SS extermination squad is dispatched to solve the problem, the men find a something that's both powerful and terrifying. Invisible and silent, the enemy selects one victim per night, leaving the bloodless and mutilated corpses behind to terrify its future victims. Panicked, the Nazis bring in a local expert on folklore―who just happens to be Jewish―to shed some light on the mysterious happenings. And unbeknownst to anyone, there is another visitor on his way―a man who awoke from a nightmare and immediately set out to meet his destiny. The battle has begun: On one side, the ultimate evil created by man, and on the other...the unthinkable, unstoppable, unknowing terror that man has inevitably awakened. #thekeep #fpaulwilson #horror #nazi #nazioccult #michaelmann #80shorror #horrormovies #paperbacksfromhell #horrorfans #halloween #adversarycycle #horrorbooks #wolfenstein #halloweenbooks #horrorart #michaelmannsthekeep #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case. This was the first appearance of Holmes since his apparent death in "The Final Problem", and the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles led to the character's eventual revival. #thehoundofbaskervilles #sirarthurconandoyle #sherlockholmes #holmes #mystery #thriller #detectivestory #werewolf #horror #hellhound #giallo #novel #halloween #watson #thestrandmagazine #murdermystery #thefinalproblem #usedbook #usedbookstore #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world—all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov’s trademark. The three laws of Robotics: 1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm 2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future—a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete. #irobot #isaacasimov #granadasciencefiction #threelawsofrobotics #scifi #irobot #sciencefiction #sciencefictionart #illustration #willsmith #scifibook #novel #scifianthology #vintagebooks #ai #artificialintelligence #thesingularity #2001aspaceodyssey #classicscifi #robotics #androids #bicentenialman #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyshop #etsyseller #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

Eons ago, the Earth was a battlefield. Mighty armies clashed, led by giant warriors meticulously skilled in the art of combat. These wars would shape man's destiny and live on for centuries in legend, song and religious lore -- brutal and terrible conflicts that began lifetimes earlier on another planet. In the astonishing third volume of Zecharia Sitchin's The Earth Chronicles, the internationally renowned scholar parts the mists of myth and time to return to the violent beginnings of humanity -- employing ancient text, religious documents and archaeological findings to reconstruct epic events that support the existence of extraterrestrial "god" who once set nation against nation, army against army, and man against man. #zechariasitchin #thewarsofgodsandmen #thecosmiccode #theearthchronicles #ancientaliens #ancientastronauts #extraterrestrial #ufo #planetx #nibiru #anunnaki #chariotsofthegods #erichvondaniken #pyramidpower #atlantis #mythology #ancientmysteries #ancientwisdom #goldinthemhills #forbiddenarcheology #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life is a fictional biography by Philip José Farmer about pulp fiction hero Doc Savage. The book is written with the assumption that Doc Savage was a real person.

Decades after a successful invasion of Earth and the Terran Democratic Empire by the Ryqril—hostile, leathery-skinned aliens—resistance fighter Allen Caine is training for an undercover mission. He will assume the identity of an aide to the senate—part of the government that colludes with the invaders. But when the mission begins earlier than planned, Caine finds himself stuck on the off-planet outpost of Plinry with no idea of what awaits. He’s responsible for the most important mission undertaken by the resistance in twenty years, and when the operation goes awry, Caine’s only hope is to locate Plinry’s so-called blackcollars—the elusive, martial arts–trained guerilla force whose wartime resistance efforts are legendary. With his life and the freedom of everyone in the TDE on the line, Caine’s success will depend on whether or not he can find them. . . . #theblackcollar #timothyzahn #scifi #sciencefiction #supersoldier #scifiart #scifiillustration #fantasyart #thrawn #blackcollarseries #dawbooks #starwars #vintagescifi #usedbooks #usedbookstore #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

A guide to the nature and function of Hinduism. Hinduism is unique among the great religions in that it had no founder but grew gradually over a period of 5000 years, absorbing and assimilating all the religions and cultural movements in India. Consequently it has no Bible, Koran or Dhammapadam to which controversies can be referred for resolution. Many works such as the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad-Gita are authoritative but none is exclusively so. As in Christianity there are several Hindu schools of thought and Hinduism clearly outlines their common beliefs and particular differences. #hinduism #kmsen #kshitimohansen #pelicanbooks #religion #theology #spirituality #meditation #vedas #upanishads #bhagavadgita #religiousstudies #ramdass #metaphysical #vintagebooks #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

He told them they must fake the trip via computer magic. This way they could convince the President the mission had succeeded. Failure would mean the end of the space program.

Laying bare the U.S. government's shocking role in the Roswell incident -- what was found, the cover-up, and how they used alien artifacts to change the course of twentieth-century history -- The Day After Roswell is an extraordinary memoir that not only forces us to reconsider the past, but also our role in the universe. #thedayafterroswell #roswellnewmexico #roswell #ufo #alien #extraterrestrial #swampgas #weatherballoon #philipjcorso #colphilipjcorso #conspiracytheory #governmentcoverup #reverseengineering #alienautopsy #area51 #booksaboutufos #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine #roswellufomuseum

In the early morning hours of February 3, 2003, police were summoned to the spooky Alhambra, California, castle of legendary music producer Phil Spector. There they discovered Lana Clarkson, dying in a chair, shot through the mouth. Spector claimed Lana killed herself, but he soon charged with murder. The pop-music genius, who revolutionized music from the Beatles to the Ramones, was making headlines again. But Spector, notorious for his eccentric behavior, volatile temper, and gun-crazy obsession, pleaded innocent. What really happened on that fateful pre-dawn morning in Spector's hilltop mansion? As the controversial prodigy's life of fame, money, and excess was coming undone, a true Hollywood mystery was about to unfold. Murder or suicide?

Ranked among the classic novels of the English language and the inspiration for several unforgettable movies, this early work of H. G. Wells was greeted in 1896 by howls of protest from reviewers, who found it horrifying and blasphemous. They wanted to know more about the wondrous possibilities of science shown in his first book, The Time Machine, not its potential for misuse and terror. In The Island of Dr. Moreau, a shipwrecked gentleman named Edward Prendick, stranded on a Pacific island lorded over by the notorious Dr. Moreau, confronts dark secrets, strange creatures, and a reason to run for his life. #hgwells #theislandofdoctormoreau #theislandofdrmoreau #marlonbrando #valkilmer #darwin #badmovies #richardstanley #lostsoulthedoomedjourneyofrichardstanleysislandofdrmoreau #johnfrankenheimer #ronpearlman #fairuzabalk #horror #scifi #fantasy #humanhybrid #sciencefiction #classicnovels #usedbookstore #novelization #movietiein #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

Davy is set in the far future of our world, in the fourth century after the collapse of what we describe as the twentieth-century civilisation. In a land turned upside-down and backwards by the results of scientific unwisdom, Davy and his fellow Ramblers are carefree outcasts, whose bawdy, joyous adventures among the dead ashes of Old-Time culture make a novel which has been hailed as "a frightening, ribald, poignant look at the imaginary future," as "this chilling and fascinating book," as "superb entertainment - unique," as "so unusual as the make it both refreshing and thought provoking." #edgarpangborn #davy #scifi #sciencefiction #scifinovel #vintagescifi #postapocalyptic #fantasy #internationalfantasyaward #scifiauthor #collectiblesciencefiction #bookcover #fatasyart #illustration #usedbookstore #usedbooks #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine

John Merrick had lived for more than twenty years imprisoned in a body that condemned him to a miserable life in the workhouse and to humiliation as a circus sideshow freak. But beneath that tragic exterior, within that enormous and deformed head, thrived the soul of a poet, the heart of a dreamer, the longings of a man.

WWIII has devastated most of the world, but life is still good for the lucky & rich few hundred who had their brains preserved in an automated conservatory. Although they have no bodies to move around with, they're free to mentally visit any of the other residents, & engage in all the emotional, intellectual & pseudo-sexual congress that they desire. This is the story of a projection of life in the 25th century. People have been reduced to Cerebromorphs--disembodied brains stored in tanks in huge Depositories & wired up to computers, memory files & mammoth study programmes. In the tanks they're supposed to pass thru various levels of understanding before they are liberated, implanted in hatchery-nurtured perfect bodies & sent back into a pastoral paradise flourishing outside. The novel follows a small group of these brains: that of a 12-year-old boy killed in an air crash; an ex-movie queen, fastidious, rich & lethal; a former Nigerian sculptor & the last of the great humanists. #graymatters #williamhjortsberg #scifi #sciencefiction #transhumanism #tesla #immortality #braininajar #futuristic #thematrix #graymatter #brains #outofbodyexperience #fantasy #vintagescifi #spherebooks #collectiblesciencefiction #usedbookstore #usedbook #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #2001aspaceodyssey #thepreservingmachine #simulationtheory #virtualreality #artificialintelligence

This is the brutal expose of the rotten core of Nazi Germany.

In the twenty-second century Earth obtains limitless, free energy from a source science little understands: an exchange between Earth and a parallel universe, using a process devised by the aliens. But even free energy has a price. The transference process itself will eventually lead to the destruction of the Earth's Sun--and of Earth itself. Only a few know the terrifying truth--an outcast Earth scientist, a rebellious alien inhabitant of a dying planet, a lunar-born human intuitionist who senses the imminent annihilation of the Sun. They know the truth--but who will listen? They have foreseen the cost of abundant energy--but who will believe? These few beings, human and alien, hold the key to the Earth's survival. #isaacasimov #thegodsthemselves #scifi #classicscifi #sciencefiction #fantasy #scifiart #scifiillustration #scifiauthor #asimov #vintagepaperbacks #weirdbooks #aliens #ufos #spaceship #extraterrestrial #usedbookstores #coverart #70sart #usedbook #etsyseller #etsyshop #bookstagram #thepreservingmachine
