Excerpt from The Mummy, Vol. 1 of 3: A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century

I have long wished to write a novel, but I could not determine what it was to be about. I could not bear any thing common-place, and I did not know what to do for hero. Heroes are generally so much alike, so monotonous, so dreadfully insipid - so completely brothers of one race, with the family likeness so amazingly strong - "This will not do for me," thought as I sauntered listlessly down a shady lane, one fine evening in June; "I must have something new, something quite out of the beaten path: - but what? - ay, that was the question.
