News from nowhere, or, An epoch of rest being some chapters from a utopian romance by William Morris( Book )
6 editions published between 1912 and 1992 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"News from Nowhere (1890) is the most famous work of one of the greatest British writers and thinkers, William Morris. It is a utopian picture of a future communist society, drawing on the work of Ruskin and Marx and written in response to what Morris saw as soulless and mechanical visions of socialism. In this work of his last years, Morris distilled many of his leading ideas on politics, art and society, imagining a world in which capitalism has been abolished by a workers' revolution and nature and society have become beautiful habitations for humanity. In an era that has seen the collapse of state socialism, Morris's damning critique of this conception, and his positing of a powerful alternative, are compelling reasons for paying attention to this classic of British socialism."--Jacket

4 editions published between 1912 and 1992 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Said to have been one of the source materials upon which J.R.R. Tolkien drew when creating his beloved Lord of the Rings series, The Roots of the Mountains is a classic fantasy that takes place on an epic scale. Two civilizations are drawn together by a pair of star-crossed lovers--and by the threat of an encroaching enemy that could destroy the world as they know it

Drawing on medieval legend and age-old fantasy tropes, William Morris' Water of the Wondrous Isles combines the best of both of these genres and updates them with an interesting thematic twist: the heroic figure who leads the quest is a plucky, spirited young girl. Fans of classic fantasy will relish this exquisitely wrought tale
