About this Item

New York: Harper, 1915. Later printing issued from first edition plates. Fine hardcover w/o dustwrapper as issued. Inserted frontispiece by Will Foster (1883-1953), depicting radium experiment. Fantastic detective shorts with Craig Kennedy. Inventions; devil worship; psychic curse; eugenic bride; electro-magnetic super-gun. Many of the Craig Kennedy books are listed for science fiction and supernatural content in Bleiler I and Reginald fantastic checklists. Craig Kennedy once was America's most popular detective in books, magazines, and silent films, and no US author of any type sold better in the UK. In WWI, Reeve was asked by the American government to create a scientific lab for use against spies. He made it the most advanced in any nation of his day. This surprising fact, atop his character's popular reception, is that he inspired the first police labs such as are today taken for granted. Not much read today, nor as highly esteemed as many of his contemporaries; even so, his position in criminist literature and early s-f cannot be regarded slight. Bookseller Inventory # 5464
