Cory Doctorow Makers English Words Ages 0 and up 83 Makers tells the story of a group of hardware hackers who fall in with microfinancing venture capitalists and reinvent the American economy after a total economic collapse, and who find themselves swimming with sharks, fighting with gangsters, and leading a band of global techno-revolutionaries.
It has fewer horror overtones and is more geared toward telling adventure stories of secret lands and hidden species. Edgar Rice Burroughs. Yes, this is simply a link to a whole lot of Edgar Rice Burroughs, because a lot of his work is in the public domain and is serialized. There are also a whole lot of Tarzan books to choose from.
But you can also delve into some of his lesser known properties, like At the Earth's Core , which has more than a passing resemblance to a certain Jules Verne book. There's also the Land that Time Forgot series, showing a further obsession with untapped wildernesses, relict animals, and more.
Or you can dive into the schlocky goodness that is The Monster Men , which is exactly what it sounds like and involves mad scientists and genetic engineering. Another set of stories planted firmly in the weird fiction genre, House on the Borderland tells the tale of two men staying in a house that opens to a hellish other dimension from which gruesome pig-men continually escape.
The novel straddles a line between horror and science fiction and includes elements of time travel and dimension hopping. The Night Land deals with a dying Earth. The sun has long since gone out, and the only light on Earth comes from volcanoes. All of humanity lives in one gigantic fortress. Outside the fortress lie creatures descended from humanity but twisted by the desolate atmosphere outside.
While post-Apocalyptic science fiction is nothing new, this is definitely an excellent example, and like much of Hodgson's work, is bizarre and incredibly imaginative. Armageddon — A. This novel marks the first appearance of Buck Rogers, then called Anthony.
Anthony is a World War I veteran thrust into the future after exposure to a mysterious gas left him in a prolonged coma.
He becomes a freedom fighter in a hellish world five centuries from his own. The Buck Rogers we came to know was a swashbuckling space opera hero; this novel is definitely terrestrial, though filled with fabulous flying weapons of mass destruction and other far-future technologies.
The tone is a little different, too. Still, this was the start of one of the most influential heroes of the pulp era. A Trip to Venus by John Munro. Munro is largely forgotten today, but A Trip to Venus is important for what it predicted all the way back in In the story, however, much of the technology here relies on anti-gravity mechanisms rather than combustion.
Triplanetary by E. A true classic from the Golden Age of science fiction, written by a science fiction great. The pulpy space opera tale has aliens who secretly shape humanity's destiny, nuclear war, space travel, genetic engineering, stellar pirates, and more. This was just the first part of the Lensman series , an expansive set of books that spans billions of years. This book is a longstanding personal favorite, a tale of explorers who follow a series of caverns down to a prehistoric wonderland in the core of the Earth.
The conceit is ridiculous to the point of near-fantasy, but as a tale of adventure its influence can still be felt, and it spawned many stories of relict dinosaurs and mysterious lands, as well as "what's under the crust" stories with varying degrees of implausibility. Two tales that endure to this day. In the first, a time-traveler flung to the far future discovers competing races of human descendants.
The Eloi are docile surface dwellers, while the Morlocks are an insidious, enslaving race that dwell in a series of caverns far below the surface.
While the famous Orson Welles drama has taken on a mythic status thanks to some hyperinflation of the "panic" by members of the press looking for a story, the real scare was very small. Still, the book created a template for future invasion stories, predicted germ warfare, and has created a series of adaptations and imitators.
Samuel Delany. Chip is a living legend, having only recently stepped down from his post at Temple University as head of the creative writing department. As a queer black man, he's brought a unique voice to science fiction over the years, incorporating themes of variant sexualities and varying event perceptions into his work.
As opposed to his later works, both combine elements of fantasy and science fiction into a far-future, dying-earth tale. Cory Doctorow's books are much newer than most on this list.
The BoingBoing founder has been a consistent critic of modern copyright law, and he's put his money where his mouth is by making many of his books Creative Commons or putting them in the public domain.
Down and Out in the Magical Kingdom is a tale of a post-death, Disney-owned world where dying is just a temporary inconvenience. There are social credit points — called Whuffies — alotted to participants as rival gangs of Mouseketeers compete for popularity among park visitors. Makers, on the other hand, plays as a sort of near-future cyberpunk-inspired novel about the DIY movement of hacker and maker spaces.
It's about how hackers and makers struggle to survive as the economy falls apart, using ad hoc fixes to make their way through a changing economic landscape. Ok, that last one isn't so great. However, despite its major faults, The Lost World is a highly influential lost-land story of a group of adventures on a South American plateau who find the land where dinosaurs and prehistoric reptiles not only live, but thrive alongside Ice Age mammals and other creatures known only through fossils.
Deathworld and Planet of the Damned by Harry Harrison. Deathworld is a sort of parallel story to Harrison's famous Stainless Steel Rat series, taking place in the same sort of framework but focusing on a gambler thrust onto a hellish world full of dangerous beasts and awful weather on a smuggling trip.
