About the Book

"The Copper-Clad World" is a science fiction short story written by Harl Vincent. This story provides a fresh and intriguing study of a different universe. The novel recounts the exploits of two scientists, Haines and Dr. Percival, as they journey deep underground to discover the secrets of their copper-clad world in a future where Earth is not comprised of rock and soil but is totally covered in a coating of copper. The scientists find a rich ecosystem of sentient metallic living forms beneath the metallic surface. These animals have developed to adapt to the peculiar conditions of their copper environment and communicate via telepathy. Haines and Dr. Percival learn about these beings' culture, history, and conflicts as they interact with them. "The Copper-Clad World" is an engrossing and thought-provoking story about adaptability, communication, and the interdependence of life. Harl Vincent's tale enables readers to imagine a world far different from our own, while also provoking thought about the possibility of life in the universe. The original idea of the narrative, as well as its analysis of the interaction between humans and an extraterrestrial, metallic species, make it a remarkable contribution to the science fiction genre.

About Author

Harl Vincent

Harl Vincent (October 19, 1893 – May 5, 1968) was the pen name of American mechanical engineer and science fiction novelist Harold Vincent Schoepflin. He was a regular contributor to science fiction pulp magazines. Vincent was born in 1893 in Buffalo, New York. He went to a technical high school before enrolling in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Vincent dropped out of RPI before finishing his first year to marry. He married Ruth Hoff, with whom he had two children: a son and a daughter. Vincent worked at Westinghouse as a mechanical engineer, specialized in the installation and testing of complex electrical devices. Later, he worked as a sales engineer, eventually becoming the manager of a local steam division. Vincent began writing after discovering Hugo Gernsback's pioneering science fiction journal Amazing Stories. "The Golden Girl of Munan" was Vincent's first published story, and it appeared in the magazine's June 1928 issue. Vincent published around seventy science fiction stories during the next fourteen years. Despite the fact that the most of his work appeared in early science fiction journals, he was published twice in the general fiction pulp magazine Argosy. Despite the fact that he stopped publishing in the early 1940s, Vincent remained active in science fiction.
