Best Fiction Entertainment


Take a break from the serious and have some fun for a change.

Best Police Story
Beyond Recognition
by Ridley Pearson — In pursuit of a most inventive killer.
Best Adventure Novel
The Chinese Bandit
by Stephen Becker — Earthy and exciting, not to mention being a superb source of oriental curses.*
Best Epic Novel
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson — Codebreaking, data havens, and high finance mix with love, war, and intrigue across three generations.
Best Mystery
The Eight by Katherine Neville — Especially loved by those who like to think and those who enjoy chess.
Most Unexpected Finale
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card — The thoughtful but fascinating story of a young boy who is tricked into changing the universe forever.
Most Illuminating
Genesis by William Harbinson — An ingenious and engrossing exposé of the forces at work behind many of the anomalies of the twentieth century. Of course, it's fiction, but … who knows?*
Most Hilarious
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams — Insanely funny and memorably imaginative.
Best Fantasy Series
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein — Many have emulated this trilogy but none have done it better. A truly wondrous tale, wonderfully written. Read The Hobbit first.
Best Post-Catastrophe Novel
Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle — Mankind fights to survive a comet strike.
Best Alien-Contact Tale
The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle — When Larry and Jerry get together, wonderful books happen and this is their masterpiece.
Best Historical Novel
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett — The building of a cathedral in 12th-century England. Carefully wrought and truly captivating.
Best Spy Novel
The Secret Ways by Alistair MacLean — Best known for The Guns of Navarone, the master thriller writer is at his prime here.
Best Halloween Story
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury — Two youths encounter high strangeness when Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show rolls into their Midwestern town.
Best Psycho-Killer Novel
The Silence Of The Lambs by Thomas Harris — Even if you've seen the movie, the book is well worth your time.
Best Apocalyptic Epic
The Stand by Stephen King — The world's most popular horror writer at his very best. His characters (several of whom did not make it to the TV mini-series) are especially well developed. A long, dark tale you will never forget.
Best Culture Critique
Stranger In a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein — Morality, love, and religion are examined through the eyes of an outsider who was raised by Martians. A classic of the 1960s, this marvelous book remains relevant, thought-provoking, and entertaining today.
Most Inventive Plot Device
To Your Scattered Bodies Go by Philip Jose Farmer — This is the first volume of the Riverworld sci-fi saga, in which all of the humans who ever lived on earth are brought back to life simultaneously on an artifical planet, thus allowing for the (otherwise impossible) interplay of historical characters such as Mark Twain, Tom Mix, and Sir Richard Burton as they search for the planet's architects.
Most Intense Thriller
Vertical Run by Joseph R. Garber — Why is everybody (even his family and friends) trying to kill David Elliot?
Best Animal Tale
Watership Down by Richard Adams — A tale of tragedy and triumph; so enthralling you will quickly forget that its protaganists are rabbits.
Best Alternative History
The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson — What sort of world would the Chinese, Arabs, and Native Americans have forged if the Bubonic Plague had truly wiped out Europe? Fascinating food for thought.

The Book That Removes All Doubt

Three books in one. Get the complete story for one low price. This volume includes two previously published books: The Survival Files and The Afterlife Confirmed, (see descriptions below) plus a new volume titled Top-40 Remains, each by author Miles Edward Allen. They have been united in one book to ensure a wider distribution of a complete set of the very strongest evidence for the Survival of the human personality beyond the demise of the physical body.

In order to make this book a more manageable size, the appendices of the various volumes have been removed, except for an extensive, combined, reference section. All of the excised content may be downloaded for free here.

The Reality of Reincarnation

The idea that we live more than one life on Earth has been taught since philosophy and theology were invented. But not everyone accepts it. There are secular critics who find the idea unscientific, religious critics who feel it violates their unassailable doctrines, and just plain critics who attack it on pragmatic grounds. Not only does the author of this book demonstrate the faults in such criticisms, he presents conclusive evidence that reincarnation is a reality, at least for some of us, some of the time.

The Spirits Speak About Love & Lust in the Astral Realms

Even More Convincing Evidence
From The Survival Files

[Note: This book has been combined with The Survival Files and Top-40 Remains to create the more economical The Hereafter Trilogy (see above).] The cases presented in The Survival Files (see next entry) inspired the creation of The Survival Top 40, the only objective ranking of evidence for the continuation of the human personality beyond the demise of the physical body. In this book, readers will find 18 highly-rated cases from the current Top 40, along with more of the intriguing conversations between the author and the “old man.” These extras include uncommon insights into such diverse topics as the value of darkness, the advantages of antique cameras, the susceptibility of scientists to conversion phobia, and the relationship between spirits and UFOs.


The Survival Files

The Most Convincing Evidence Yet Compiled
For The Survival Of Your Soul

[Note: This book has been combined with The Afterlife Confirmed and Top-40 Remains to create the more economical The Hereafter Trilogy (see above). The print version of The Survival Files, therefore,  has been withdrawn from the market.] The critics say: "both profound and easily understood. … A must read"• "speaks clearly with logic and common sense" • "A great book … definitely impressive" • "well-written, deeply researched, and thought-provoking … a hard-to-put-down book" •"This unusual and stimulating book delivers more than its title might suggest … an ideal book for absolute beginners, but even advanced students should find something new in it."• "If there was ever a book written to allay the fear and dread of dying, this is it!"
