Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner ( Book )
37 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,236 libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1968, Stand on Zanzibar was a breakthrough in science fiction storytelling technique, and a prophetic look at a dystopian 2010 that remains compelling today. Corporations have usurped democracy, ubiquitous information technology mediates human relationships, mass-marketed psychosomatic drugs keep billions docile, and genetic engineering is routine. Universal in reach, the world-system is out of control, and we are all its victims...and its creator"--Cover p. .

Matthew Flamen, the last of the networks' spoolpigeons, is desperate for a big story. He needs it to keep his audience, and his job. And there is no shortage of possibilities: the Gottschalk cartel is fomenting trouble among the knees in order to sell their latest armaments to the blanks; which ties in nicely with the fact that something big is brewing with the X Patriots; and it looks as if the inconceivable is about to happen and that one of Britain's most dangerous revolutionaries is going to be given a visa to enter America. And then there's the story that just falls into his lap. The one that suggests that the respected Director of the New York State Mental Hospital is a charlatan. John Brunner's scathing vision of a society disintegrating under the impact of violence, drugs, high-level corruption and the casual institutionalization of the 'insane' was a powerful and important statement in 1969. It remains a compelling and chilling tour de force.

One of the finest writers in the English language, Rudyard Kipling was the first British author to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (in 1907). From children's stories to adult romances, from tales of ordinary men and women to tales of the supernatural, the scope and breadth of his work has rarely been equalled. Kipling's mastery of his craft lies in his eye for telling detail. Whether he writes of an exotic land at the ends of the earth or of everyday England, of heaven or hell or anywhere in between, he brings it all home to the reader. This selection of his science fiction includes some of his best-loved stories. Rudyard Kipling has tales to tell, and he tells them with a sure hand. They have been and continue to be an enduring delight and inspiration to many generations of readers and writers.
