And without television widely available, much of the free time of the working literate class was spent pouring through the pages of the pulps. Addresses for sites on any subject, no matter how obscure? These take place in other worlds and feature mystical creatures and magical powers. I said, By God, I saw something after all! The starting line says it all, really—”It was a dark, blustery afternoon in spring, and the city of London was chasing a small mining town across the dried-out bed of the old North Sea.” A stunning tale of adventure, sinister plots and betrayal, Mortal Engines is possibly the most famous steampunk novel written in the last decade and begins what is considered by many to be one of the finest—if not the finest—steampunk series.

I recently read Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks and really enjoyed it. The critics of Fiction were perhaps beguiled by the American-looking covers, and the "American" pseudonyms of writers like Bruss and Wul. As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site. Frank and a handful of strangers wake up to the empty city and band together. I can scan through the shelves with my list in hand and know if I've found a winner. Four astronauts returning from mankind's first mission to Mars enter a time warp and crash on a 26th Century Earth devastated by atomic war.

When you decide upon a theme, make sure to use examples and quotations from the book as you write the book report, to prove that the theme is important. Both tactical accounts of the fighting are top notch, and both convincingly mark the battle as the point when the Confederates lost the capacity to launch further offensives of a scale significant enough to seriously hinder Sherman's advance.
