Introduction Gene Christie

“George Allan England’s masterpiece stands as one of the great prototypes of modern science-fiction.”—Mike Ashley

“A super-science epic . . . ahead of its time.”—Sam Moskowitz

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.

First time in book form.
