Return to the Twentieth Century

A Novella by


Return to the Twentieth Century is a novelette published by 40kBooks. 40kBooks publishes a select number of titles by award-winning authors from across the globe.

Why novelettes? Novels can have pauses, faults: a long story wins by points. A novelette, as Julio Cortazar wrote, needs to win by knock-out.


"The war between the sexes, long thought to be extinguished, is heating up! It has been obvious to anyone who has bothered to look during the past year. But the cause has been more obscure. It is not a natural affair! The animosity is being stoked by agents provocateurs - fifth columnists from beyond our planet! This is the nature of the assault on our world. And if we do not stop it, our civilization will go down in a cataclysm of gender warfare."


Paul Di Filippo (born October 29, 1954 in Providence, Rhode Island) is a science fiction novelist and short story writer of wide genrebending influence, as well as a journalist, a sometimes comics writer, a mail art fiend, and a bunch of other things that are probably very hard to describe. Also, the first person to use the word "Steampunk" in a book title."
[Warren Ellis]
