    This book was recommended on FrontiersSaga.com in the forums as Frontiers Saga readers wait for the next episode. Honestly this book was way ahead of it's time. Written between 1915 and 1920 and apparently not published until 1928 the SciFi in it is still remarkable. When you consider that Einstein didn't receive his Nobel Prize until 1921, it makes it even more phenomenal.

    Wow, nostalgia - I read this years ago and loved it. The dialogue is, well, not very contemporary. But the sci-fi is great and the story was really engaging. By the way, some one still has my book 3 in this series that I lent them - please give it back! What about the Lensman series by the same EE Doc Smith - they were even better...
