Price: $2.50
A dystopian view of the end of the world, written back in 1907 with all the classic vintage sci-fi charm of flying machines and synthetic and electric everything. The author's preface reads: "I am perfectly aware that this is a terribly sensational book, and open to innumerable criticisms on that account, as well as on many others. But I did not know how else to express the principles I desired (and which I passionately believe to be true) except by producing their lines to a sensational point. I have tried, however, not to scream unduly loud, and to retain, so far as possible, reverence and consideration for the opinions of other people. Whether I have succeeded in that attempt is quite another matter." This edition adds a few footnotes to explain the references to the Latin Mass and prayers which Catholics of the time would have taken for granted plus anything else the publisher had to look up while reading.
