Q: Book where the setting is both in the present and past

Q: In The Lord of the Rings, did anyone ever say "The fellowship is now complete."?

LarryjlI have seen some references to this quote, but can't confirm if it was a real line, in either the books or movies. Is it perhaps a Mandela effect, or a reference from something else?

Q: A novel about near-death experiences and a mysterious ship

AlfredI read this novel about 20-25 years ago, and I think it was shortly after its publication. It is definitely SF if only because medicine is more advanced in the book than it was 20 years ago when it was published (but maybe not more advanced than now, reality has a way to catch up with fiction). I...

Q: How does the Ferengi economy work?

komodospIn Star Trek - the Federation is a post-scarcity socialist (for want of a better world) utopia, that has abandonded the concept of money. This makes sense in light of the existence of replicators and other technlogy - the modern day economy couldn't possibly work in a world with plenty of supply ...

Q: Looking for Short story. Man summons demon who mocks him for not believing in god

FaythI read this short story a while ago and can't for the life of me find it again. I think it might have been around the time that the SFX Pulp books were released and the Aliens found humans were intelligent meat. Anyway what I remember was a man summoned a demon and the demon laughs at him when th...

Q: Choose Your Own Adventure with time travel and some very bizarre scenes in it

ZodfatherI’m looking for a Choose Your Own Adventure book (or more likely a CYOA knock-off) which involved time travel and had a couple of very specific sections that really stood out to me. This would have been 1980s-era or possibly early 90s. Here’s what I remember about it: I remember it feeling pre...
