Brave New World Resources

Movie or TV Productions

1998 TV Movie

Brave New World, a made-for-TV movie starring Peter Gallagher (you know him from The O.C., or if you're super-cool, from Center Stage) and Leonard Nimoy (from Star Trek).

1980 TV Movie

Brave New World, another made-for-TV movie. No fun famous people, as far as we can tell, and it looks like they took some liberties renaming the characters (Lenina Disney? OK…).


Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden did a song called "Brave New World." Check it out.


Hmm…another "Brave New World" song, this time by Motorhead.


The Author

Aldous Huxley in a posed picture.


A picture is worth a thousand words.

A Classic Book Cover

The classic image from the cover of the book.


"When the Future Looked Brave and New"

A recent book review of Huxley's selected letters, edited by James Sexton.

"Brave New World Revisited"

In 1958, Huxley wrote an essay on his novel called "Brave New World Revisited" in which he examines how society has advanced toward his horrid vision of the future. If you're into the novel as a piece of literature, this isn't too exciting, but if the science excites you, then this is for you.
