Russian novelist and philospher Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) is best known for his monumental novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina, but his reputation as a master of short fiction is richly evident in this unparalleled anthology. Here, in the largest one-volume collection available, are 36 stories of war, intrigue, treachery, murder, moral turmoil, spiritual anguish, and occasional redemption. They include early stories like the famed "Sevastopol" tales of warfare and "Lost on the Steppe;" the tour de force novellas "The Death of Ivan Ilyitch" and "The Kreutzer Sonata;" as well as folk tales, parables, realistic tales, and many lesser-known gems.

The Aquarian Age is an astrological era that is arriving in the year 2638 where humans will have the ability to read minds by resonance, and have x-ray vision by not processing the reflection of the image on the retina, but actually looking out and seeing the thing itself. This is not science fiction, but foretold by a PhD in physics who devoted her life to studying astrology and spirituality. She has now passed, but her niece Susanna Brown has put back into print the original 1987 limited edition version of her book. Dr. Glover shows how the Aquarian Age will help people to break out of the shell of ignorance, lack of self-esteem, and fear so that they can become, for the first time in history, truly free. As people become free to explore their own inner natures, the world around them, and other peoples, unprecedented advances will be made in self-actualization, scientific understanding, invention, and universal love.

Writer and explorer Charles Neider made his first trip to Antarctica in 1969, achieving a lifelong goal of seeing the frozen continent with his own eyes. During this visit and a return trip in 1970, both backed by the U. S. Navy and the National Science Foundation, Neider discovered the rigor and beauty of life so close to the South Pole. In addition to his own experiences, Edge of the World also contains Neider's accounts of Shakleton's and Scott's expeditions, and the story of his own helicopter crash and rescue on the slopes of Mt. Erebus. Neider's account is erudite, literate, and intensely personal.
