"The Poison Belt" depicts the situation in which the Earth passes through a cloud of poisonous ether. "The Land of Mist" is a tale of the supernatural, focusing on Edward Malone's at first professional, and later personal interest in Spiritualism. "When the World Screamed" tells of Challenger's World Echinus theory. "The Disintegration Machine" concerns the potentially dangerous new invention by a scientist named Theodore Nemor. Memories and Adventures: An Autobiography of Arthur Conan Doyle Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a British writer best known for his detective fiction featuring the character Sherlock Holmes.

Terry Gilliam has been making movies for more than forty years, and this volume analyzes a selection of his thrilling directorial work, from his early films with Monty Python to The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnussus (2009). The frenetic genius, auteur, and social critic continues to create indelible images on screen--if, that is, he can get funding for his next project. Featuring eleven original essays from an international group of scholars, this collection argues that when Gilliam makes a movie, he goes to war: against Hollywood caution and convention, against American hyper-consumerism and imperial militarism, against narrative vapidity and spoon-fed mediocrity, and against the brutalizing notion and cruel vision of the "American Dream."
