Product Details


Included in’s “Can’t Miss Indie Press Speculative Fiction for January and February 2023”

“Written in the Interwar Period, Theodore Savage is a terrifying and prescient science fiction novel that’s unflinching in its portrayal of the fragile scaffolding that supports “civilized” society.”
—ForeWord Reviews, STARRED

“Prescient both to Hamilton’s time and to the current moment of war, plague, and refugee crises, this novel deserves to be rediscovered. Readers will have much to chew on.”
—Publishers Weekly

In Praise of the Radium Age Series:

“Joshua Glenn’s admirable Radium Age series [is] devoted to early- 20th-century science fiction and fantasy.”
The Washington Post

“Long live the Radium Age.”
The Los Angeles Times

“It’s an attractive crusade. […] Glenn’s project is well suited to providing an organizing principle for an SF reprint line, to the point where I’m a little surprised that I can’t think of other similarly high-profile examples of reprint-as-critical-advocacy. ”
The Los Angeles Review of Books

“Neglected classics of early 20th-century sci-fi in spiffily designed paperback editions.”
The Financial Times

“New editions of a host of under-discussed classics of the genre.”

“Shows that ‘proto-sf’ was being published much more widely, alongside other kinds of fiction, in a world before it emerged as a genre and became ghettoised.”
BSFA Review

“A huge effort to help define a new era of science fiction.”
Transfer Orbit

“An excellent start at showcasing the strange wonders offered by the Radium Age.”
Maximum Shelfs
