Publisher's Synopsis

The first English translation of a cult science fiction favorite by Hemendra Kumar Roy, one of the giants of early Bangla literature, and other sf stories from the colonial period in India. Kalpavigyan-science fiction written to excite Bengali speakers about science, as well as to persuade them to evolve beyond the limitations of religion, caste, and class-became popular in the early years of the twentieth century. Translated into English for the first time, in this collection you'll discover The Inhumans (1935), Hemendra Kumar Roy's satirical novella about a lost race of Bengali supermen in Uganda. Also included are Jagadananda Roy's "Voyage to Venus" (1895), Nani Gopal Majumdar's "The Mystery of the Giant" (1931), and Manoranjan Bhattacharya's "The Martian Purana" (1931).
