“George Allan England’s masterpiece stands as one of the great prototypes of modern science-fiction.”—Mike Ashley
“A super-science epic . . . ahead of its time.”—Sam Moskowitz
It’s 1914 and Alien Marauders Invade the Earth!
Strange flying globes—unfathomable aliens from the Fourth Dimension—appear suddenly over major cities, raining destruction and death on defenseless millions! When all hope seems lost, a small team of scientists and airmen— and a daredevil flyer captured by the invaders—rally the planet’s primitive air forces for a last, desperate battle to preserve mankind and its civilization.
George Allan England’s The Empire in the Air, a nearly forgotten landmark by one of the fathers of science fiction, is now available for the first time in book form—more than 90 years after its initial publication.
With an introduction by Gene Christie.
