An Adventure in Time by Francis Flagg:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
"A characteristic of our modern generation
is its intense interest in the future. What
will our civilization be in 100, 500 or 1,000
years hence? How will some of our most
pressing problems be settled? Mr. Flagg
answers some of these questions with great
clarity and with a picturesqueness which is
peculiarly his own.
('An Adventure in Time' by Flagg)
One might say that time-traveling stories
fully serve their purpose by giving us a perspective on our own civilization and very
often lending a new viewpoint on conditions
that we have come to accept as inevitable.
('An Adventure in Time' (interior) by Flagg)
There is little question but that the future
will see an increasingly greater part of our
work being done by mechanisms of one kind
or another, and whether these mechanisms
are the Mechanicals as pictured by Mr. Flagg
or some other form of mechanism, they will
undoubtedly relieve man of much of the
drudgery that is prevalent even in our
twentieth century life."
