Mad Worlds by Bill Douglas Book Resume:
Young teacher John Chisholm is haunted by a past tragedy and, believing his wife no longer loves him, begins to experience a nervous breakdown. He is forcibly removed to Springwell, a harsh mental institution where he endures and witnesses abuse – some of this 'in the name of treatment' – and makes new, eccentric friends. He is certified and detained indefinitely. Although suicidal at times, he is determined to survive and escape. John’s wife Heather Chisholm, who has recently battled post-natal depression, is distraught. Left to care for their baby, she struggles to rally support from friends and family. Encountering John’s hostility on visiting him, and horrified at the conditions in which he is hopelessly trapped, she finds herself vulnerable to Sam Newman, an overworked Mental Health Officer instrumental in John’s detention. But he’s not the only one with his eye on her… Can Heather resist not only Sam, but also Sarge Parker, the sadistic and ambitious Charge Nurse who targets John for abuse? Will John ever escape the harsh environment in which he has been imprisoned? Will his relationship with Heather survive? And can Jamie Macdonald, the new Medical Superintendent, really transform Springwell into a caring community? Mad Worlds is a novel set in an era when England still operated under harsh, stigmatising Victorian legislation in the field of mental health. Readers are invited to eavesdrop on realistic scenarios, both within and outside a mental asylum of the 1950s. With flashes of dark humour, this is a curious, sometimes terrifying tale suitable for fans of historical fiction and those who are interested in the issues of mental health, relationships and loss.

Anthology of the Mad Worlds by Vitaly Ju Book Resume:
Insanity is manifested in our world in different "faces", and it is not just a part of our life, and insanity is life. Insanity forces a person to various "logical" actions in his life, but there is no logic in insanity. The madness of man is that he tries to combine incompatible things around us, to find logic in them. But there was never any logic between these things and in the things themselves. We just interact with things, but we don't know what the things we interact with are, so we don't know anything. We are entangled in our own unsolvable contradictions, and we try to resolve these contradictions, although we do not understand that we are so limited in understanding what is happening around us that "we get sick with our own disease" when trying to resolve contradictions in the world and in ourselves. Therefore, I invite you to read "not crazy incredible stories about our crazy world"!
The Legacy of Olaf Stapledon by Patrick A. McCarthy,Charles Elkins,Martin Harry Greenberg Book Resume:
Although better known for his classic and influential science fiction novels, Olaf Stapledon also wrote eight other science fiction books, seven volumes of philosophy and social criticism, and hundreds of reviews, lectures, and articles. This is the first book collection of original essays dealing with larger issues in Stapledon's writings and with his relationship to such forces as Marxism and literary modernism. The articles develop new avenues for the exploration of Stapledon's work, focusing on philosophical, linguistic, political, and structural elements, and showing how Stapledon's nonfictional writing may illuminate aspects of his fiction. In addition, the book includes Stapledon's hitherto unpublished manuscript "Letters to the Future."
The Cinema of Terry Gilliam by Jeff Birkenstein,Anna Froula,Karen Randell Book Resume:
Terry Gilliam has been making movies for more than forty years, and this volume analyzes a selection of his thrilling directorial work, from his early films with Monty Python to The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnussus (2009). The frenetic genius, auteur, and social critic continues to create indelible images on screen--if, that is, he can get funding for his next project. Featuring eleven original essays from an international group of scholars, this collection argues that when Gilliam makes a movie, he goes to war: against Hollywood caution and convention, against American hyper-consumerism and imperial militarism, against narrative vapidity and spoon-fed mediocrity, and against the brutalizing notion and cruel vision of the "American Dream."
Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon Book Resume:
'Star Maker' by Olaf Stapledon is more about philosophy than about science fiction, but it has enough of both to make all kinds of fans happy. The author covers the history of, well, almost everything. He travels through space and time, back and forth, to explore everything from intelligent stars to the alien civilizations that rise ands fall, from simple plant-men to massive utopias. Always, he is also looking for the Star Maker, God, the Great Creator. --Michael Valdivielso at Amazon.com.
