The Emperor of the Stars by Nat Schachner (w. AL Zagat):
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

""There are more things” said Hamlet, “than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” This story by our popular team of authors serves but to prove this oft-quoted phrase.

"Sir James Jeans has only recently assured us that the world we inhabit is but a product of our senses, and may be simply a three-dimensional projection from a super world. Similarly it is possible for other worlds to exist all about us, whose laws may be entirely different than ours.

"All our physical laws such as gravitation, etc. are possibly peculiar to our universe; and in another universe particles of matter may repel each other instead of attracting.

"Surely the possibilities of a corking story in a theme like this are endless. Our authors have taken advantage of them to create a stirring tale of the adventures of two Earth-men in an alien universe." Select an invention:

Atmosphere Tester
