    World's In Collision

    I came across this book many years ago and found it facinating. Skeptic magazine did a whole issue on this book claiming the whole thing was peudoscience, However they never explained How any specific theory was wrong. I believe Professer Veliscousky was on to something. His...

    "the Bell Jar" S.plath

       "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath. I was blown away by her style of writing, beautiful, amazing  voice of a poet  narrating a story in proze. Be careful though, this is an authobiographical novel about Plath's struggle with suicidal depression, and it will...
