Men Like Gods

ByH. G. Wells

Men Like Gods is a novel originally published in 1923 by H. G. Wells. It features a utopia located in a parallel universe. Mr. Barnstaple, a journalist working in London and living in Sydenham. He has grown dispirited at a newspaper called The Liberal and resolves to take a holiday. Quitting wife and family, he finds his plans disrupted when his and two other automobiles are accidentally transported with their passengers into "another world," which the "Earthlings" call Utopia. Utopia is some three thousand years ahead of humanity in its development. For Utopians, the "Days of Confusion" are a distant period studied in history books, but their past resembles humanity's in its essentials. Utopia lacks any world government and functions as a successfully realised anarchy. Their education is their government. Sectarian religion, like politics, has died away, and advanced scientific research flourishes. (Wikipedia)
