George Allan England . . . to my mind, ranks with Edgar Rice Burroughs and Albert Payson Terhune as one of the three supreme literary artists of the house of Munsey.—H.P. Lovecraft
“The public . . . is insatiably eager for science mingled with fiction.”—George Allan England
When science fiction was a new and yet undefined genre, pre-dating the vast-reaching, intergalactic sagas of Heinlein, Asimov and Clarke, one of the most successful authors of the era was George Allan England.
Garbed in his rapid-paced storytelling, England depicts people affected by advancing technology and unexplainable events, always delving further, towards a central theme, asking the question of “What if?”
What if . . .
. . . viewing events from other periods of history became possible?
. . . the implantation of a mechanical heart could grant near immortality?
. . . Earth were visited by an alien intelligence looking for science projects?
. . . a device were created to predict crime before it happens and weed out from society those individuals with predilection for such behaviors?
. . . the intelligence of man were surgically spliced with the brutish physic of a great ape?
The answers to these and other questions may be discovered in The Thing from—Outside.
Selected and edited by Gene Christie.
