(15 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth was called by H. G. Wells "a fantasia on the change of scale in human affairs. Mr. Bensington, a research chemist specializing in "the More Toxic Alkaloids," and Professor Redwood, who after studying reaction times takes an interest in "Growth." Redwood's suggestion "that the process of growth probably demanded the presence of a considerable quantity of some necessary substance in the blood that was only formed very slowly" causes Bensington to begin searching for such a substance. After a year of research and experiment, he finds a way to make what he calls in his initial enthusiasm "the Food of the Gods," but later more soberly dubs Herakleophorbia IV. The novel concludes with the world on the verge of a long struggle between the "little people" and the Children of the Food.
