A collection of stories by

 
"ENGAGING FUTURISTIC AND SCIENTIFIC FANTASIES!" Humor, sparkling dialogue, a light-hearted battle of the sexes, sound biological and scientific speculations, plus thoughtful explorations of the implications of various social and political systems, characterize this classic science fiction tetrology, which Brian Stableford hails as "engaging futuristic fantasies." Homer Eon Flint was one of the early 20th century pioneers of science fiction, best remembered for these four novels featuring the interstellar explorations of "Dr. Kinney" (and friends) in his "Sky Cube," which showcase the author's "deep interest in the emergence of behavioral and historic patterns" (The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). In The Lord of Death, Dr. Kinney and friends visit Mercury, where the relics of a war-prone civilization reflect the ideal of survival of the fittest carried to its logical conclusions. In The Queen of Life, a matriarchy on Venus struggles with the consequences of preserving every life as precious. In The Devolutionist a cantankerous voyage to a world of Capella brings the space travelers into contact with a benevolent dictatorship. And their final trip brings them face-to-face with a hive-like society on a ring-shaped world of Arcturus.
