Top Customer Reviews
The writing is clean and moves fast. Knowledge from his time has been lost making him valuable. The Bolshevic revolution colors some of Shanks' vision of the future. This book is mainly important to see what was being written before the golden age of science fiction. It is sometimes funny that Shanks did not envision any changes in more than the technology of the future. After all, suffragists were active and had been for more than 40 years.
