Autorentext

John Jacob Astor (1864-1912) was one of the wealthiest men in the world and an inventor of such devices as the pneumatic walkway, a bicycle brake, a flying machine, and an internal combustion engine. He died on the doomed "Titanic" voyage. S. M. Stirling is the author of such novels as Island in the Sea of Time, The Peshawar Lancers, "Conquistador," and "The Domination."



Klappentext

Wildly imaginative but grounded in reasoned scientific speculation, "A Journey in Other Worlds races far ahead of the nineteenth century to imagine what life would be like in the year 2000. Thoughtful, adventurous, and replete with a dazzling array of futuristic devices, this is a classic, unforgettable story of utopias and humankind's restless exploration of the stars.

Zusammenfassung
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Earth is effectively a corporate technocracy, with businesses using advances in science to improve life on the planet. Seeking other planets habitable for the human population, the spaceship Callisto, powered by an antigravitational force known as apergy, embarks on momentous tour of the solar system.
