Ralph 124C 41+ is the leading genius around town in the scientifically run utopia of the year 2660. His inventions have helped make the world a better placed to live in and his every thought is devoted to scientific thought - until he meets Alice 212B 423 and she instantly becomes the object of his affections.

He woos her amid a tour of the wonders of the New York of 2660 C.E. But then a scientific rival becomes a rival for Alices hand. When Ralph wins her heart, his rival kidnaps Alice and secrets her in a scientific fortress defended by fearful weapons of his own invention. Soon the two are pitted against each other in a battle of scientific geniuses and weapons.

Heres a genuine keystone novel in the field of science fiction. Written by Hugo Gernsback, the man dubbed the father of American science fiction for his founding of the first all-sf magazine, Amazing Stories in 1926, Ralph 124C 41+ is 1920s fictional look at the year 2660. And, due to the authors scientific background, most of its predictions came true!

As critic Groff Conklin says, Ralph contains a goodly number of then-fantastic scientific ideas that have since become fact. It also is a lot of fun to read. True enough, the plot is old-hat and the style is awkward - but even so Ralph- is thoroughly delightful. It has the genuine charm of a sound, workmanlike antique, plus the often-astonishing survival value of successful prophecy. You will not be disappointed with this tale! Cover Frank R. Paul/Mia Jennings. With five of the original 1920s illustrations by Paul.
