Armchair fiction presents extra large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. This visionary novel of the twenty-seventh century "Ralph 124c 41 +" was written by Hugo Gernsback, founder of the influential science fiction magazine Amazing Stories. By the year 2660, science had transformed and conquered the world, rescuing humanity from itself. Spectacular inventions from the farthest reaches of space and deep beneath the Earth were available to meet every need, providing antidotes to individual troubles and social ills. Inventors were highly prized and respected, and they were jealously protected and lavishly cared for by world governments. That support and acclaim, however-as the most brilliant of scientists, Ralph 124C 41+, discovers-was not without its price. Marvelously prophetic and creative, "Ralph 124C 41+" celebrates technological advances and entrances readers with an exuberant, unforgettable vision of what he thought our world might (and has) become.
