Before Adam & Other Stories (The Collected Science Fiction and Fantasy of Jack London #1) - Jack London N/A

Renowned as a writer of classic adventure stories such as The Call of the Wild and White Fang, Jack London also had a parallel career as a writer of science fiction and fantasy. In Leonaur's three volume, The Collected Science Fiction & Fantasy of Jack London, his SF and fantasy novels and shorter works are brought together for the first time. In the title novel of Before Adam & Other Stories a modern man experiences through his dreams the harsh and savage life of an ancestor from a time when our species was only beginning to rise above its animal origins. London's powerful writing conjures not only the sights, smells and sounds of that ancient time, but also the feelings of terror, joy and love that set early man apart from the animals. This volume is rounded out with nine vivid shorter works in a variety of modes, but all, ultimately, concerned with how change impacts on ordinary people.
