1867-1906
A comment on the life and writing of the American lady who wrote as John Oliver Hobbes: by MARGARET MAISON
Dr. Maison outlines the career of one of the most brilliant stars of the 19th-century literary world, Mrs. Pearl Craigie , who was the friend of Lord Curzon and one of the most beautiful women of her time. Her books-both the early society novels and the later Roman Catholic ones-have, Dr. Maison believes, continuing claims on our attention.

by JOHN TAYLOR
Department of Physics.
Queen Mary College, London
For the last sixty years, since Einstein's theory of Relativity, scientists have accepted that it is truly impossible to travel faster than light. Recent developments in particle physics seem to indicate that perhaps there are objects called tachyons which have the property of being able to go faster than light-in fact at infinite speeds in some cases. Dr. Taylor examines the possibility of our being able to use these particles as ways of transmitting information at colossal speeds.
