A Journey to the Centre of the Earth

By: Jules Verne

A Latent Dark

By: Martin Kee

When Skyla looks at a person’s shadow she sees through it and into another world. She can see people’s fears, desires, their past sins—all as swimming, living creatures. This has attracted unwanted attention from the theocracy as well as a witch hunter who intends to capture her by whatever means possible. When she disappears, it raises more questions and an unlikely search party is formed.

The Leviathan

By: Thomas Hobbes

Introduction: NATURE (the art whereby God hath made and governs the world) is by the art of man, as in many other things, so in this also imitated, that it can make an artificial animal.

For what is the heart, but a spring; and the nerves, but so...
