This elaborate and engrossing story holds the attention of the reader in the firmest possible grip. The Intelligence Gigantic operates to exceed that of the wisest of humanity and the strangest results are brought about by it and the plot will be found crowded with incident. The reader will be kept in suspense till the very end. The super human intelligence easily takes the lead over mankind at large, and the monster, as he may be called, is virtually without morals and simply embodies pitiless intellectual power making him a dreadful despot. We stop here, although we could say more. We leave it to our readers to study out the strange conditions that may be brought about by great intellect uncontrolled by the morality of the every-day world.--intro.

Author Bio for Fearn, John Russell

Author Image

John Russell Fearn (1908–1960) was a British author and one of the first British writers to appear in American pulp science fiction magazines. Prolific author, he published his novels also as Vargo Statten and with various pseudonyms such as Thornton Ayre, Polton Cross, Geoffrey Armstrong, John Cotton, Dennis Clive, Ephriam Winiki, Astron Del Martia and others.

Fearn was a prolific writer who wrote Westerns and crime fiction as well as science fiction. His writing appeared under numerous pseudonyms. He wrote series like Adam Quirke, Clayton Drew, Golden Amazon, and Herbert. At times these drew on the pulp traditions of Edgar Rice Burroughs. His work received praise for its vividness, but criticism, being deemed "unpolished".
