It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe. And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.

This romantic cliffhanger about a woman pursued by her ex-lover, a relentless stalker, seems sprung from today's headlines. Yet Alcott (1832-1888) wrote it more than a century and a quarter ago, in 1866 (two years before the appearance of Little Women), only to see it rejected it as ``too sensational'' by the magazine that had requested it. The novel has remained unpublished until now.
