Books to Read

Sea-Kings of Mars / Leigh Brackett
The Last Witchfinder / James Morrow
The Cider House Rules / John Irving
Empress / Shan Sha
Ivanhoe / Sir Walter Scott
Imperium / Robert Harris
The Scarlet Pimpernel / Baroness Orczy
Spartacus / Howard Fast
The Time It Never Rained / Elmer Kelton
The Body Snatchers and Other Stories / Robert Louis Stevenson
