The Angel of the Revolution

by George Griffith
Release date: 1893
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries George Griffiths was as well known and, according to some experts, as popular as that other exemplar of the early British scientific romance, H. G. Wells. 'The Angel of the Revolution,' is a rich brew that calls to mind Verne's tales of futuristic wars while being original, visionary, exciting and technologically prescient. This is the story of a group of idealists, 'The Brotherhood of Freedom,' led by Natas, a crippled but brilliant Russian Jew and his daughter Natasha, who conquer the world through airship warfare after a young British inventor masters the technology of flight. Our inventor falls in love with Natasha and joins her in a crusade against political corruption and warmongering that leads to a world in which war is outlawed. The sequel to this book, 'Olga Romanoff,' is also available from Leonaur, both in hardcover and softcover editions.
