The first reviews of this groundbreaking work of science fiction noted that its philosophical content surpasses Plato, that it is a "tour de force of scientific imagination," and that its author is "in advance of Darwin and Rousseau as a thinker." Its author, writes another, "is a genius in a field with no rivals." If you care for great science fiction, rich with philosophical and technical imagination, this is a truly undiscovered classic.
