A classic science fiction adventure in the style of and dedicated to the readers of Jules Verne.

A COLUMBUS OF SPACE

BY GARRETT P. SERVISS

[Illustration: "Standing on the steps ... was a creature shaped like a man, but more savage than a gorilla."]

TO THE READERS OF JULES VERNE'S ROMANCES THIS STORY IS DEDICATED

Not because the author flatters himself that he can walk in the Footsteps of that Immortal Dreamer, but because, like Jules Verne, he believes that the World of Imagination is as legitimate a Domain of the Human Mind as the World of Fact.
