Summary

A pioneer of science fiction presents two stories from his legendary "Dr. Kinney" series. Homer E. Flint, who got his start writing for silent movies, contributed to pulp magazines of the early twentieth century. Flint anticipated genetic testing and fantasized about time travel when cars and movies were in their infancy. Both of the stories in this book were originally published in 1921, in issues of Argosy magazine.
In The Devolutionist, Dr. Kinney and his companions blast off from Earth in a sky-car of the doctor's own invention. On the Earth-like planet Capellette of the star Capella, where two planets travel through space locked to a common axis, they encounter a totalitarian society and learn powerful telepathic techniques. In The Emancipatrix, the explorers visit the planet Sanus of the star Arcturus, where they use their new telepathic skills among primitive humans who dwell in a hive community.
