Joseph Conrad’s Sci-Fi book, The Inheritors (1901)
“it concerns a scheme by a group of people from ‘the Fourth Dimension’ to wipe away the current order on earth and set up their own morally dubious hegemony.” - from today’s GUARDIAN.CO.UK
FULL TEXT (Good luck finding a non-digital copy of this baby…)
Welp, this seems cool. I guess I’ll just print up a copy for myself with our new book machine now. Did you say trouble finding a non-digital copy? Because that was wicked easy.
The Inheritors is great — weird, slyly satirical, generally delightful. I first ran across it a couple years ago while gearing up for a back-and-forth with Alex Chee about Ford Madox Ford (Conrad’s co-author) and Jean Rhys.
