Uncle Tom’s Cabin
Uncle Tom is a high-minded. devoutly Christian black slave to a kind family. the Shelbys. Beset by financial difficulties. the Shelbys sell Tom to a slave trader. Young George Shelby promises to someday redeem him. The story relates Uncle Tom’s trials. suffering. and religious fortitude. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was revolutionary in 1852 for its passionate indictment of slavery and for its presentation of Tom. „a man of humanity.” as the first black hero in American fiction. Upon meeting Harriet Beecher Stowe. Abraham Lincoln allegedly remarked. „So this is the little lady who started this new great war!” The novel became an overnight sensation and was hailed by Tolstoy as „one of the greatest productions of the human mind.” It remains a shocking. controversial. and powerful work. exposing the attitudes of white nineteenth-century society toward slavery and documenting in heart-rending detail the tragic breakup of black families.

Boat of a Million Years
Others have written science fiction on the theme of immortality. but in The Boat of a Million Years. Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history. certain individuals were born who live on-unaging. undying-through the centuries and millennia. This story follows them over two thousand years. up to our time and beyond-to the promise of utopia and to the challenge of the stars. As time goes on. these unique individuals must learn to cope with-and hide-their true nature. Facing suspicion by the mortals around them. they become wanderers. disconnected even from their families. But hope lies ahead. A milestone in modern science fiction and a New York Times Notable Book when first published in 1989. this is one of a great writer’s finest works.
