Summary
In this novel, the narrator, after an attempt to reach the moon using vials of dewdrops, finally finds himself in what appears to be the Garden of Eden, surrounded by biblical patriatchs. After falling foul of the prophet Elijah, he soon meets a race who walk on all fours and whose nourishment comes in the form of vapor. Intended mainly as a satire of its age, this tale is now considered on of the pioneering works of science fiction.--
