Kiplings Science Fiction- Rudyard Kipling

Yes, Rudyard Kipling wrote Science Fiction! This was much to my surprise. I like Kipling, but had not known about his Science Fiction until I came across this anthology. The editor is John Brunner, and the book is published by Tor, a division of Tom Doherty Publishing. Mr. Kipling wrote about many subjects and exhibited a great understanding of technological trends, just not quite in the way he envisioned. For example, in the story "With the Night Mail", he envisioned a close paralell to modern nuclear power, initially published in 1905! I seriously enjoyed ALL of the stories in this collection. This book is a reccomended read by this reviewer!
