It's one of those obscure fantasy novels that I love. Funny w/ some scary stuff. It's about two magicians Prospero and Roger Bacon, they alone have the knowledge and power to stop a nasty sorcerer who acquired a dangerous book of spells. Their adventures take them through haunted forests and evil villages.

The Circus of Dr. Lao by Charles G. Finney - Another rare books that I loved. I think it's the pioneering novel about circus that comes to town. Nauna pa kay Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes at Tom Reamy's Blind Voices. It's a recounting of events in a small town when a circus arrives, run by a Chinese and containing the most extraordinary collection. The effect of this collection of curiosities on various townspeople are maddening, and sometimes terrible.

Replay by Ken Grimwood - With a premise 'What if you could live your life over and over again?' That sums up the life of Jeff Winston, whose mid-life heart attack plunged him into a 25 year time warp, and become the richest, most powerful man in the world. 'nough said, enjoy!
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes - Deeply affecting and remarkable novel about the gentle moron who becomes something like the world's greatest genius, and then charts his own descent down into the intellectual depths again.
Way Station by Clifford D. Simak - This Hugo award-winning novel is about a certain Enoch Wallace, an ageless hermit. Neighbors saw him striding across his untended farm as he had done for over a century, still carrying the gun with which he had served in the Civil War. But Wallace has a secret, they must never know that inside his unchanging house, he met and conversed with a host of unimaginable friends from the farthest stars.
