Many people, discussing the future of the earth, assume without thinking that man will always be the dominant creature. Yet we know that man was once a grovelling, fearful and unimportant animal in the order of nature. There is no good reason why he should not again be relegated to an inferior position among earth’s creatures, or disappear entirely from the face of the globe.

If that occurs, what order of life will reign supreme? Or will it come about that there will be a desperate struggle for existence among the remaining species with eventually the extinction of all life—except bacteria?

Mr. Harris has some very definite ideas on this subject, and in this engrossing story he takes us into the future some thousands of years to show us the end of all of our hopes, our ambitions and our scientific and technocratic planning. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Wyndham, John

Author Image

John Wyndham (1903-1969) was an English science fiction writer. 'Wyndham' was the best known of his pen-names, his full name being John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris. Originally trained as a lawyer, he tried several careers before settling on writing. He characterized his books as "logical fantasy". His stories are typically set in normal English life in which some fantastic event occurs. His best known works include Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, and The Chrysalids. In particular the word 'triffid' has passed into the lexicon of the English language as referring to any imaginary dangerous plant. (Oxford Companion to English Literature)

Author Bio for Paul, Frank Rudolph

Frank R. Paul (1884-1963) was an American artist and illustrator. He studied art and architecture in Europe before emigrating to New York in 1906. He designed several buildings there and also earned a living drawing political cartoons for newspapers and illustrating textbooks. In 1926 he devoted his work full time to illustrations, becoming one of the first professional artists who worked in the science fiction genre. He created cover illustrations for Amazing Stories for three years between 1926 to 1929. He drew for many other pulp magazines of the time continuing his work well into the 1950s.
