THE EMPIRE IN THE AIR

“George Allan England’s rare masterpiece is one of the forgotten prototypes of modern science-fiction.” — Mike Ashley

STRANGE INVADERS FROM ANOTHER WORLD

The startling appearance of a glowing, gaseous sphere in the observatory of a Boston university launches Professor Keene and his colleagues on a race against time to stop a horde of interstellar invaders in this “lost” classic by one of the fathers of science fiction.

1914: ALIEN MARAUDERS INVADE THE EARTH

Strange flying globes — unfathomable aliens from the Fourth Dimension — appear suddenly over major cities, raining destruction and death on defenseless millions! When all hope seems lost, a small team of scientists and airmen— and a daredevil flyer captured by the invaders — rally the planet's primitive air forces for a last, desperate battle to preserve mankind and its civilization.

George Allan England's "The Empire in the Air," a nearly forgotten landmark in science fiction, is now available for the first time in book form — more than 90 years after its initial publication.
