>> Best Jack London's Horror, Science Fiction and Other Stories (Annotated)<<
Jack London is best known for his adventure stories set in the wilds of Alaska and the Yukon. However, he was a varied and prolific author, and his works include stories of horror, science fiction, socialist fiction, philosophical pieces and other material. This volume attempts to be a complete collection of his "other works", and is great for both Jack London fans and those simply looking for a good, classic read. The collection also features a foreword from the editor and a brief biography of the author.
Jack London's Horror, Science Fiction and Other Stories features 68 tales. The most notable ones include:
The Red One (1918) - A story of extraterrestrial visitation, set in the jungles of the South Pacific.
A Thousand Deaths (1898) - A science fiction story; the first story Jack London was ever paid for.
A Piece of Steak (1911) - The powerful tale of an aging prize-fighter in New South Wales.
The Unparalleled Invasion (1914) - A speculative (and racist) account of a future war between the West and China.
The First Poet (1916) - A satirical play commenting on the status of the artist in society, set in the Stone Age.
And many, many others!
