The Master of the World

    By

    Another thrilling tale from the master of science fiction. Mysterious events are occurring throughout America but they all have one thing in common: they seem to involve impossibly fast vehicles. When detective John Strock goes to investigate, he uncovers the secret of Robur, a brilliant but arrogant man who has invented an astonishing vehicle. Unbelievably, it can transform to journey on land, sea or air allowing him to travel so fast he is rendered invisible. Fearing the godly powers Robur might wield with the machine he has named The Terror, Strock sets out to stop him at any cost. But Robur is not so easily defeated, and Strock faces a fierce battle for both his life and the fate of the world. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
