9780898752717: The Garin Death Ray

This is a story, originally written in 1927, of an attempt to use a remarkable invention to establish the absolute power of one man throughout the world. Garin, inventor of a powerful death ray, also aims at subjugating the majority of the world's population by means of a "little operation" to their brains which will make slaves of them, willing to work, like beasts of burden, for their food alone, so that the chosen few, the "patricians," might live a life of pleasure.

The scheme is countered by the champions of the common people, two bold fighters - young Gusev and the fearless Shelga.

From the Author:

"I make use of all manner of material, from scientific manuals (physics, astronomy, geochemistry) to anecdotes. When I was writing The Garin Death Ray I had to study the newest theories in molecular physics. . . "A writer must have a really profound knowledge of what he is writing about and must be able to handle precise figures and formulas . . . Although I am an engineer by profession and have put a great deal of work into the writing of Garin, I see that I could have done more. New discoveries in chemistry and metallurgy could have been used to rewrite the story over and over again."

Alexei Tolstoi
