This unique collection of stories and excerpts from larger works traces the literary emergence and evolution of science fiction, from celebrated works by Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, and Jules Verne to perhaps unexpected contributions from Nathaniel Hawthorne ("Dr. Heidegger's Experiment," 1837) and Mark Twain (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, 1889). The 22 works here have left a lasting influence on science fiction, popular culture, and even society itself, including Edgar Allan Poe's "Some Words with a Mummy" (1845) and "The Sphinx" (1850), Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Poison Belt" (1913), Jack London's The Star Rover (1915), and Milo Hastings's City of Endless Night (1919).
