This Book Haul is short and sweet.

The following four books were purchased at HalfPricedBooks about two weeks ago.  Fortuitously, I was able to commandeer capture misappropriate purloin pilfer ransack plunder acquire these books in great condition for a great price.  Even better, I was able to finally purchase some of H.G. Wells’ work, which I sought to do for a really long time.

H.G. Wells 7 Novels by H.G. Wells

This particular Leather Bound Edition was on my sights for a long time, but it tends to be quite expensive even when used.  Thankfully that wasn’t the case at HPB.

This book edition contains The Time Machine, The Island Of Dr. Monreau, The Invisible Man, The War Of The Worlds, The First Men On The Moon, The Food Of The Gods, and In The Day Of The Comet.

Really looking forward on starting this and rereading some of his stories.  Thinking about starting with The Invisible Man, but unsure still.  Any of you have any ideas?

Science Fiction Short Stories

This book – along with the one below – was fully unknown to me.  After sifting through the table of contents [those things are time savers, aren’t they?] and seeing some of the short stories inside were my cup of tea, this book found a new home.

H.G. Wells Short Stories

A compilation of H.G. Well Short stories – what’s not to like?  This particular book was unknown to me, but after sifting through it it’s classic Wells to boot.  So far the stories are great, except in bite-sized form.  A great complement to the introductory book.

Star Trek – Prime Directive by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens

When a Star Trek book contains everything from double-dealing, backstabbing, piracy, resignations, and even violations of the classic Prime Directive, you know it’s going to be chock-full of intensity.   That’s on top of the ‘science fiction’ too.  And luckily, there’s even more than that!

For a Star Trek book newbie such as myself, figured this wouldn’t be a bad place to continue my venture, and thankfully, the book is delivering in spades.

Any of you familiar with these pieces or find any other books of late that are feeding that old reading addiction?  By all means hesitate not and comment below!

Hope all is well and you all have a great and meaningful weekend.

“A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
– Carl Sagan

“If you want children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.”
– Einstein

“Books are the mirrors to the soul.”
Virginia Wolf

This one’s a quick haul.  To spice it up just a smidge, this bookhaul will only feature leatherbound books purchased early summer.  Enjoy.

Dracula & Other Horror Classics by Bram Stoker

A novel that could be said to be ‘ahead of its time’.  Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I can honestly now say that I really enjoyed the unique point of view brought about through the unorthodox way the story is related by Bram Stoker.  Stoker employed the use of letters, personal entries, ship logs, newspaper articles, etc., to tell the story from each character’s unique point of view.  Certainly this is something one nigh never sees, but which worked out rather well given its uniqueness.  The story is a bit slow at times, but engrossing enough to keep you going if you’re a fan of the genre.

The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov

One of the classics in Science Fiction, from one of the Big 3 in science fiction.  What’s not to like?

It’s been said this is one of Asimov’s great works and I am looking to finishing it.  Finished book #3 in the Foundation series, which is the first book of this trilogy three days ago.  I really enjoyed the book, although enjoyed the previous prequel duet more.   Still, I am looking forward to finishing this trilogy and moving on to the last books thereafter.  Definitely a highly recommended series for fans of science fiction.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Since I had never read anything from Gaiman, I knew not what to expect.  That said, many of my friends really enjoy his work and thought I would as well.  Having read this book, I was intricately surprised at the uniqueness with which he brought about this particular story employing Gods as the foundation for various characters throughout the story.  Not what was expected, but in a very refreshing way.

The Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum

The Wizard Of Oz, Barnes & Noble Ed. features the first five novels of the Wizard Of Oz Series.  It’s a book that’s simple to read, but quite entertaining as well.  I myself am only familiar with parts of the story, so thought it interesting to avail myself of the rest whenever there’s downtime around.  Back when The Wizard Of Oz initially came out there wasn’t almost anything like it out there, and it made it stand out like lightning in a clear sky.  That said, it has stood the test of time as a classic in literature.

The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

The quintessence of the classics, The Divine Comedy was a bit harder to read given its old English writing, but it’s not anything someone can’t overcome with a little hard work and perseverance.  After a while you begin picking up the language rather swiftly and it becomes nigh automatic how easy you can comprehend what’s being said.  A very rewarding, breathtaking and imaginative book, especially for its time.**

The Ultimate Hitchiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Although the plot could have been better, the humor more than makes up for it.  This book is downright hilarious while still offering a very novel story that holds the ship above water.

Star Trek: The Classics Episodes by James Blish & J.A. Lawrence

Surprisingly, this was a very great book.  The quality of the short stories is great, and the stories within all read seamlessly, and are much better and interesting than I expected.  I really hope B&N follows up with another book of later episodes.

All things considered, it’s been a busy and entertaining few weeks.  Having read most of these it was a very unique experience and one glad I took the time to undertake.  I am usually more fond of reading nonfiction research books, but now and again I opt to involve a dash of something different.  Thankfully, all of these books delivered and a few were better than expected.  I look forward to setting up more time to finish up those I haven’t read, and hopefully continue to catch up on some of the classics.

Have any of you read any of these or have any books you would like to recommend?  What are your favorites?  Hope all is well.

The Divine Comedy was actually purchased two months earlier than June.  Since the book surreptitiously snuck into the picture, thought it worth while to comment.

NASA is developing Star Trek-style TRACTOR BEAM

Technologies that seemed impossible and only achievable in movies have turned out to be completely normal as researchers around the globe are reducing the line that separates science fiction from real science.

Now, an experimental physicist at New York University in New York City is working closely with NASA and is close to developing a Star Trek-style TRACTOR BEAM.

Science fiction movies like Star Wars and Star Trek have envisioned the future in several occasions.

Technologies that seemed impossible and only achievable in movies have turned out to be completely normal as researchers around the globe are reducing the line that separates science fiction from real science.

Just imagine what the human race could achieve if we had engines like that of the USS Enterprise, tractor beams that allow us to ‘capture’ massive objects in space, or even teleportation.

Science has taken some of the ideas presented in the above-mentioned movies and developed real-life applications.

Now, researchers are developing a ‘TRACTOR BEAM’ which aims to develop a technology like we’ve seen in Star Wars when ‘The Empire’ captures the elusive Millennium Falcon.

Physicists firmly believe they are close to demonstrating that it is indeed possible to CAPTURE, hold, push and even pull objects ni space using ‘beams of light’ over distances of up to 1 cm. Not very useful at the moment but progress is made, you gotta start from somewhere, right?

But don’t worry, researchers say that if they can CAPTURE, hold, push and pull objects from 1 cm, they can also do it over several miles.

Currently, scientists are working on smaller objects with just a fraction of a millimeter across, but this technology could be developed in the future allowing us to CAPTURE spaceships and other objects.

David Grier, an experimental physicist at New York University in New York City who leads the futuristic project, explains how he and his team are working with scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Centre in Maryland in order to develop a long-range tractor beam that could work over long distances.

“When we were first making tractor beams in the lab at first all we could do was move really tiny things over very, very small distances – just over a millionth of a meter. We are not lifting up an entire battle cruiser and hauling it across space. But then once you have got to cm and to meters the next step is km. That is what we are working towards now,” said Grier.

“In space exploration, this would be a very big deal,” adds Grier.

The Transhumanist Scrapbook – Teleportation Of Memory

Yesterday I blogged about the emerging technology of being able to read the specific brainwaves of individual words before they are spoken by their “thinker,” and about all the implications that seem to flow from such a capability. Today, in yet another article shared once again by Ms. M.W., we expand on this idea in yet another direction, namely, the notion of non-locality and entanglement:

Physicist propose the first scheme to teleport the memory of an organism

Physicist propose the scheme to teleport the memory of an organism

In “Star Trek”, a transporter can teleport a person from one location to a remote location without actually making the journey along the way. Such a transporter has fascinated many people. Quantum teleporting shares several features of the transporter and…

There’s so much fertile ground here for our usual “let the mind roam freely” and our usual “high octane speculation,” that one scarcely knows where to begin. But consider these statements:

With a strong magnetic field gradient, the internal states of a microorganism, such as the electron spin of a glycine radical, can be entangled with its center-of-mass motion and be teleported to a remote microorganism. Since internal states of an organism contain information, this proposal provides a scheme for teleporting information or memories between two remote organisms.
