Ben Hur is an 1880 novel by a general in the Union army.

It is basically "The Count of Monte Cristo" with Jesus Christ tacked on for good measure.

It begins with a *very* lengthy meeting of the three wiseguys somewhere in the desert.  They then go and check out the new born Messias.

Even years on from its inception, the Star Trek reboot has been extremely divisive among fans. While most seem willing to accept the idea of a reboot given how the universe was handled, the often plot hole ridden scripts with a focus on action over substance have caused eyebrows to be raised. It's hardly without reason either. Praise what you will about Into Darkness, but even the most ardent fan would have a very hard time arguing that they beat the likes of The Inner Light or Tapestry when it comes to human exploration or handling weighty themes. 


Some fans have been hungering for a return to the old universe, and now it looks like they will be given that chance in Star Trek: Axanar. Crowd funded via kickstarter, Axanar is a fan film following the original war between the Federation and Klingon Empire, and is backed by a surprisingly talented cast of actors. With fairly solid CGI and the promise to show what the new films have been progressing towards from the style of the older franchise, yet at the same time showing a part of the universe we have not seen before. Even before it has been released however, the creative team behind the film opted to release a short film building up to the conflict, the battle upon which hinged the future of both sides.

The Iron Heel is a 1908 sci-fi novel by Jock London.

One of the first distopic novels, not the first, as Gulliver's travels is earlier, and does count.  (So would "a modest proposal," come to think of it.)

The plot, such as it is, is that in the future there exists a diary of a guy who was some sort of guerilla hero way back in 1910.

The latest in the rapidly growing list of limited edition novellas produced by Black Library, The Purge sees focus return to Anthony Reynolds’ ensemble of Word Bearers.

The 34th Host, also known as the 34th company of the Perpetual Spiral chapter, lays siege to the Perception system in Ultramar’s Five Hundred Worlds. With the last of the Ultramarines engaged in a bloody last stand, Captain Sor Talgron commits his troops to finally finishing off the remnants of Guilliman’s legion. Resenting his battle-brothers’ urgent need for faith in higher powers, Talgron has become increasingly jaded with their clandestine operations.

Ever the loyal soldier to Lorgar, he none the less bitterly remembers the operations and choices he was called to make before Rogal Dorn at the outbreak of the Heresy. However, the Ultramarines are far from beaten and they yet have one hand left to play. As Talgron moves to face them one final time, the fickle hand of fate may yet tip the balance of power against him…
