A Plunge Into Space

A Plunge Into Space. Robert Cromie's 1890 novel contains a detailed description of a spacecraft, a realistic description of the deserts of Mars and some fascinating technological prophecies, such as televised broadcasts of concerts and plays. As most authors of interplanetary stories of his era did, Cromie uses the Martian civilization to comment on his own. Interestingly, the book contains an extremely well-drawn heroine in the form of a Martian girl, Mignonette. Foreword by Jules Verne, frontispiece and map.
