^^^^^^^^^^^^ Some ancient Sci-Fi there, Anton.
Here's another from 1938.
An interesting snippet from Wiki . . . "Lewis wrote the novel after a conversation with J. R. R. Tolkien in which both men lamented the state of contemporary fiction. They agreed that Lewis would write a space-travel story, and Tolkien would write a time-travel one. Tolkien's story only exists as a fragment, published in The Lost Road and other writings (1987) edited by his son Christopher."



The first book of the "Out of the Silent Planet" trilogy by C.S. Lewis.

The Martian races have evolved according to plan, and humans are created to try to match or improve on that. Then the spirit of Earth goes a bit crazy . . .

Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell (1949)

The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, historical negationism, and propaganda. Great Britain, known as Airstrip One, has become a province of a superstate named Oceania that is ruled by the Party who employ the Thought Police to persecute individuality and independent thinking. Big Brother, the leader of the Party, enjoys an intense cult of personality despite the fact that he may not even exist. The protagonist, Winston Smith, is a diligent and skilful rank-and-file worker and Party member who secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion. He enters a forbidden relationship with a co-worker, Julia.
