About the Book

Two stories from the illustrious "Dr. Kinney" series by a pioneer of science fiction are presented. Early twentieth-century pulp publications included writing by Homer E. Flint, who began by penning scripts for silent films. When cars and movies were in their infancy, Flint foresaw genetic testing and had time travel fantasies. The two tales in this collection were first released in 1921 as issues of Argosy magazine. In The Devolutionist, Dr. Kinney and his friends take off from Earth in a specially designed sky car. They visit a totalitarian civilization on the Earth-like planet Capellette of the star Capella, where two worlds traverse through space bound to a shared axis, and they have access to potent telepathic abilities. In The Emancipatrix, the explorers travel to the planet Sanus, which is orbited by the star Arcturus, where they practice their newly acquired telepathic abilities with apes living in a hive community. A self-sufficient, regionally-based small press publishing enterprise is The Library of Alexandria.

About Author

Homer Eon Flint

American pulp science fiction author Homer Eon Flint (born Homer Eon Flindt; 1888–1924) wrote both novels and short stories. In 1912, he started writing the scenes for silent movies (perhaps at his wife's urging). He released "The Planeteer" in All-Story Weekly in 1918. Ace Books reprinted his "Dr. Kinney" novellas in 1965, and he co-wrote the book The Blind Spot with Austin Hall. He passed away in 1924 under unexplained circumstances; his body was discovered at the bottom of a gorge, beneath a cab that had been taken. The Ancient Astronaut Society was co-founded by his son, Max Hugh Flindt (1915–2004). Together with Otto Binder, he co-wrote Mankind - Child of the Stars in 1974. Bonnie Palmer is the name of his daughter. When he either disappeared or was killed, my mother was not even six years old, yet she still mourns the passing of his brilliant mind and cuddly lap. His oldest child and only son, Max, has spent a significant portion of his life developing and promoting his theory of evolution. Max has a love for both scientifically plausible and mysterious phenomena.
