Summary
Featuring hard-to-find short stories published between 1873 and 1930, this original anthology spotlights a variety of important sci-fi pioneers, including Ethel Watts Mumford, Edith Nesbit, and Clare Winger Harris. Imaginative scenarios include a feminist society in another dimension, the east/west division of the United States with men and women on opposite sides, a man who converts himself into a cyborg, a drug that confers superhuman qualities, and many other curious situations. Editor Mike Ashley provides an informative introduction to the stories. Highlights include When Time Turned (1901), which centers on a grieving widower who contrives to relive his life backwards; The Painter of Dead Women (1910), the tale of a woman in thrall to a Svengali-like character who promises to preserve her beauty forever; The Automaton Ear (1876), in which an inventor struggles to create a machine to detect sounds from the distant past; Ely's Automatic Housemaid (1899), a lighthearted fable concerning a robot housemaid; and ten other captivating tales
