'An illuminating work of massive insight' Alan Moore 'A sensational book. Heartily recommended' Rufus Hound It is the century about which we know too much, yet understand too little. With disorientating ideas such as relativity, cubism, the id, existentialism, chaos mathematics and postmodernism to contend with, the twentieth century, John Higgs argues, cannot fit easily into a traditional historical narrative. Time, then, for a new perspective. Higgs takes us on a refreshingly eclectic journey through the knotty history of the strangest of centuries. In the company of radical artists, scientists, geniuses and eccentrics, he shows us how the elegant, clockwork universe of the Victorians became increasingly woozy and uncertain; and how in the twentieth century we discovered that our world is not just stranger than we imagine, but 'stranger than we can imagine'.

A group of strong women cope with what life throws at them, relying only on their brains, their spirit, and one another. More than a story of people struggling through multiple disasters, it’s one of grappling with reality. Is there only one reality? You’d think. But we all interpret what’s really going on in our own way. Are some people deluded, or are they focusing on a single facet of reality because it’s so vast that no one can comprehend all of it? That drives the title, part of a quote by Heisenberg. In quantum mechanics, one concept is that observing an event may impact it. The characters deal with that phenomenon, so the chapter titles are song titles showing how the songs’ imagery influenced the author’s vision in ways unrelated to the crux of the songs. These considerations heighten the depth of the story while melding events such as being stranded on a gondola over a gorge, trapped in a mountaintop resort devastated by an earthquake and avalanche, and even battling monsters and demons in addition to other survivors. Oops, I broke the world. Enjoy.
Bingo Sac Grabbins is asked by the coughing wizard Gandef and some (oddly Welsh) dwarves to help them relieve the great dragon Smug of his gold. SF author and Tolkien scholar Adam Roberts has written a parody that is both hilarious and intelligent. With knowing digs at the fantasy genre in general and the mystique that has built around Middle Earth in particular this will make Tolkien's 21st century readers laugh in a way that BORED OF THE RINGS made his fans of 1969 laugh.
