Abstract:

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) - the first British writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, the celebrated author of The Jungle Book, Captains Courageous, and Just So Stories, and one of the finest storytellers in the English language - is rediscovered in these pages as a science fiction pioneer.

Now, discover why noted science fiction writer Poul Anderson praised these stories as "some of the best work in the entire field."
