I found a batch of Galaxy Science Fiction Novels (digest format) this Summer while I was organizing a donation for SUNY at Buffalo. Two of the novels were S. Fowler Wright’s The Amphibians (1924) and its sequel The World Below (1929), both examples of vintage story-telling. S. Fowler Wright’s two works will remind you of H. G. Wells’ The Time Machine. In both of these adventures, a 20th Century man (named George!) is sent 300,000 years into the future. He searches for two other missing time travelers. Wright creates an intriguing future with weird flora and fauna. It quickly becomes apparent that S. Fowler Wright was not a big fan of technology. The future world finds humans divided into amphibians and giant Dwellers who rule the largest landmass. One of the amphibians agrees to help George on his quest. Much of The Amphibians and The World Below consists of long philosophical sociological arguments between George and the amphibian. A third book was planned to complete the trilogy, but Wright never got around to writing it.
