1984 / George Orwell.

by Orwell, George, 1903-1950.

Edition: 1st edMaterial type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction Publication details: Fairfield, IA : 1st World Library, c2003Dissertation note: It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him. The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats. At one end of it a coloured poster, too large for indoor display, had been tacked to the wall. It depicted imply an enormous face, more than a metre wide: the face of a man of about forty-five, with a heavy black moustache and ruggedly handsome features. Winston made for the stairs. It was no use trying the lift. Even at the best of times it was seldom working, and at present the electric current was cut off during daylight hours. It was part of the economy drive in preparation for Hate Week Availability: Items available for loan: 5 Call number: 813.54 O.G.O 2003, ...

Beyond sanctuary / by Janet Morris.

by Morris, Janet, 1946-.

Series: Thieves' worldMaterial type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction Publication details: New York : Distributed by Simon and Schuster, c1985Dissertation note: Beyond Sanctuary: "While showing a fine flair for the sword and sorcery genre, Morris succeeds as well in making her more than human characters more than entertaining." -- Library Journal "Janet Morris's Beyond Sanctuary is the first volume in a trilogy that includes Beyond the Veil and Beyond Wizardwall, and the events in this trilogy take place before The Sacred Band, the magnificent novel by Janet and her husband Chris, which I previously reviewed here for Black Gate. Beyond Sanctuary is a complex novel and truly literary heroic fantasy. It is textured and layered, subtle at times, and yet always powerful. Like the best of all literary fiction, it has emotional depth and human drama, subtext and a philosophy that is expressed through the thoughts, words, and deeds of its characters, and not through narrative lecture and dissertation that slows the pace of narrative thrust. This is a novel driven by eloquent, intelligent characters with real emotions and real problems, with plots and subplots born of the classical tradition... characters that speak to us, that have something to say. And the action never falters or loses momentum. Each chapter picks up more and more steam right up until the explosive finale of the attack on Wizardwall and the resulting aftermath that ends like the final note in a great opera or symphony on the last page." -- Black Gate Adventures in Fantasy Literature --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
