English novelist and philosopher Aldous Huxley is famous today for his dystopian science fiction novel ‘Brave New World’, which went on to inspire countless other authors and forms of media. His works are notable for their wit and pessimistic satire, vividly expressing Huxley’s distrust of twentieth century trends in both politics and technology. Huxley also wrote learned non-fiction books, including ‘The Doors of Perception’, detailing his experiences with the hallucinogenic drugs and ‘The Perennial Philosophy’, revealing his growing interest in Hindu mysticism. For the first time in digital publishing, this comprehensive eBook presents Huxley’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
