War of the Scientists is a gripping collection of three science fiction novellas from classic and much-respected author John Russell Fearn Thrillingly prophetic in his time, John Russell Fearn’s exemplary prose in these three stories shows exactly why he was heralded as a master of the genre.

In The Granite Angel a corporate spy is hired to investigate the illicit dealings of an infamous trader known throughout the galaxy as the eponymous and terrifying Granite Angel... And in World Beneath Ice, Earth is struck by a series of calamitous tremors caused by a strange magnetic force. When the population learns that this force has the power to rip up the Earth’s crust, the world is reduced to absolute terror... Praise for John Russell Fearn: “... A pioneer of science fiction [...] he was one of the Greats of the earlier ages, and his name should be there with Hugo Gernsback, John W. Campbell, Stanley G. Weinbaum, Murray Leinster, and all the others whose thoughts and works formulated today’s modern science fiction.” — John Carnell, New Worlds John Russell Fearn was an extremely prolific and popular British writer, who began in the American pulps, then almost single-handedly drove the post-World War II boom in British publishing with a flood of science fiction, detective stories, westerns, and adventure fiction.
