Written by Robert Cromie in 1890, S&Co. is proud to present our first ever Save the SciFi ebook release.
A Plunge into Space was first printed in 1890 and continuously reprinted until 1910, earning the enthusiastic plaudits of Jules Verne. On the return trip they discover a stowaway --a Martian girl. The life-support systems of the ship cannot accommodate and extra passenger, and each crew member has some essential skill for bringing the ship safely to earth. The drama builds with enormous tension to a fateful climax as the girl becomes the key to life -- or death -- for the space voyagers.
This edition features a foreword by Jules Verne, the only foreword that Verne ever wrote.
