Description


When war breaks out in Europe -- modern, aerial war whose tactics include displacing entire populations -- British civilization collapses overnight. The ironically named Theodore Savage, an educated and idle civil servant, must learn to survive by his wits in a new Britain... one where science and technology swiftly come to be regarded with superstitious awe and terror.

The book -- by a women's rights activist often remembered today for her polemical plays, tracts and treatises -- was first published in 1922.

About the Author


Cicely Hamilton (1872-1952) was an Anglo-Irish novelist, dramatist, and campaigner for women's rights who served during WWI with an ambulance unit and at a military hospital in France. Her plays include "Diana of Dobson's" (1908) and "How the Vote was Won" (1909); her 1909 treatise "Marriage as a Trade" is a witty criticism of that institution. The dystopian "Theodore Savage" is her only science fiction novel.

Gary Panter won three Emmy awards for his set designs for "Pee-Wee's Playhouse." His artistic activity includes the science fiction comics "Jimbo" and "Dal Tokyo," painting, prose, music, and light shows. He teaches at School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.
