- Now with an Historical Afterword by Ron Miller
- Includes the original illustrations by Frank R. Paul
Featured in Ron Miller’s “The Conquest of Space Book Series.” Originally published in 1930, R.H. Romans' novel features one of the great early SF heroines. The indomitable, beautiful genius Dorothy Brewster is the driving force behind mankind's first trip to the moon. Romans' novel is set on an epic scale, encompassing nothing less than the history of the earth and humanity. In addition to being one of the first to suggest boosting spacecraft with an electromagnetic gun, Romans' book is also a uniquely science fictional plea for racial tolerance.
