In Robert Duncan Milne, science fiction historian Sam Moskowitz has unearthed a remarkable-and yet forgotten-master of the genre. During the twenty years prior to 1900, astonishingly Milne published at least sixty stories of sci-fi and fantasy, and may well have been the field's first full-time contributor.
Yet Milne, in spite of being a major influence upon an imaginative writing movement of the 1800's, is a forgotten individual.
Into the Sun and Other Stories is a generous sampling of Robert Duncan Milne's fiction, and it is full of marvelous imagination and rare scientific genius reaching far beyond his time. An insight into early science fiction.
