Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Hidden Colony
by Otfrid von Hanstein

"It has been several years since we presented to you, our readers, a story by that peer of German science-fiction authors, Otfrid von Hanstein, and we know that you will be glad to see him back in our pages..."

"Wonder Stories is distinctive in bringing the greatest foreign science-fiction stories from over the seas and going to great expense to have them translated for you, but it is only one method of ours in keeping the magazine supreme in its field. Nearly every other serial is a foreign translation and we feel proud to be the first to bring these stories to the English-speaking world.

You will find the present novel filled with the suspense that is necessary in any good story, and you cannot help liking it, once you start reading. It is not only an excellent mystery-fantasy tale of superior merit, but a story with a human touch a vivid, convincing style pervades each page and puts this novel among the classics."
