Tales from the Gaslight Zone

Authored by Graham C Lester

Early science fiction. Will terrorists get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction? Is there life on Mars? Does punishing criminals do any good? If we could travel into the future, what would we see? Is marriage passé? Will humans be supplanted by machines? Will America collapse? Could solar energy from the Sahara desert become a major power source? Can there be any place for euthanasia in a civilized society? All these questions were raised in the Victorian age and are addressed in this volume.
