The year is 1949. The place Los Angeles. Two world-famous novelists, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, meet at Huxley's Hollywood home. What follows is an imagined conversation between these two... More > titans when they discuss their novels. And much, much more. Behold the mystery. What is the secret of the enduring impact of '1984' and 'Brave New World?' What are the key themes and ideas? Many believe that both works are a nightmarish vision of a future that is now upon us. But, as the title of this book suggests, that is not how Orwell and Huxley themselves viewed their own work. For '1984' and 'Brave New World' are, supremely, fictionalized commentaries on trends in society that engaged both writers in the decade before and the one after the Second World War. So they can be read more as warnings rather than prophecies. But what Orwell and Huxley have to say if it appals also fascinates and enthrals at one and the same time.< Less

Huxley's reservations on natural selection were of the type "until selection and breeding can be seen to give rise to varieties which are infertile with each other, natural selection cannot be... More > proved”. Huxley’s position on selection was agnostic; yet he gave no credence to any other theory. Darwin's part in the discussion came mostly in letters, as was his wont, along the lines: "The empirical evidence you call for is both impossible in practical terms, and in any event unnecessary. It's the same as asking to see every step in the transformation (or the splitting) of one species into another. My way so many issues are clarified and problems solved; no other theory does nearly so well". ISBN: 978-1-105-14561-2< Less

More > government resides along with the royal family and other assorted characters. The land of Avery is situated where Britain lies now and is in fact in a parallel universe to ours, but which can be accessed through a portal that appears twice a year: at winter and summer solstice. The diary is narrated by a central character called Ringlet who records not only the everyday events at the castle but also those in his own private life, including his friendship with a witch called Mantissa and her fiancée Edwy, and his courtship of and subsequent marriage to Mantissa’s cousin Eleleth. The main plot revolves around the portal and a ‘rogue’ portal which manifests itself unexpectedly and leads to the four main characters investigating the mystery. This culminates in their visit to Banbury, Oxfordshire.< Less
