A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

In late Spring of 1943, a training squadron of P-38 pilots is sent on a mission that could very well save the continental United States from a direct attack by the Japanese. The 26 young aviators are searching for a gigantic aircraft carrier that is being built by the Japanese on a secret, uncharted island. Two of the flyers are shot down and crash land on the mysterious island. They both soon discover that the secret weapon is not the Japanese carrier at all, but an unbelievable device that could wipe out the entire West coast of the United States. Their only mission now is to survive long enough to destroy the device and stop the catastrophic event the Japanese have already set in motion.
