We are all interested in the future for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives

There's all kinds of classic stuff available online for free, including the immortal Plan 9 From Outer Space.

There's an excellent web site, The Public Domain Review, which has gathered the best of all the free stuff together. Some other fascinating stuff:

Biography and images of Phillis Wheatley a black female slave genius.

An article on, and links to the unique Flatland. I read this when I was 18. Because it's totally trippy.

An amazing Film collection including Battleship Potemkin!

Charming 19th century story books with illustrations including Old French Fairy Tales, from whence I got the illustration below. Good stuff!
