    More Information:

    "One of the few science fiction novels of the 1930s that was considered a major work by the critics, this is a bitterly dystopian novel of 632 A.F. (After Ford). Funnier than the totally grim 1984, it stresses cloning, test tube babies, and genetic, hypnopedic, and drug control of the population, by a benevolent ruling class...Deeply thought-provoking and exceptionally well written, this is a seminal novel for modern SF." (Barron, Anatomy of Wonder 104).
