On The Martian Way (1907 SF)

David Salo has very kindly given me the test of an excellent 1907 SF story I'd never previously heard of - On The Martian Way by Captain (later General) H. G. Bishop, U.S. Army.

It has
  • Spaceships and routine commercial interplanetary flight!
  • Friendly aliens!
  • Interplanetary radio!
  • Computing machines!
  • Antigravity!
  • Suspense!
  • Tragedy!
and much more. On line, and accessible from my web sites or via this link:

In other news, FF XI, which will be based on the writing of Stanley Weinbaum, is now coming along well after a slow start, and I hope to have it ready to launch in August or September. Stay tuned...

cross-Posted to my own Livejournal account and to ffutures_news on livejournal and insanejournal - apologies if you see it more than once.
