A twisted tale of hate and revenge set against the beautiful backdrop of a villa on the French Riviera. American physician Granville Dennison, feeling the cold grip of Death tightening with each passing day, abandons his medical practice and comfortable life in New York City to sail across the Atlantic in search of a life-saving miracle. Rumor has it that a brilliant scientist living in virtual seclusion may have discovered the secret of eternal youth. The story seems fantastic, but Dennison is prepared to risk anything and everything in his desperate attempt to evade the Grim Reaper! Long forgotten and unjustly overlooked, this stunning yarn is the masterwork of early science-fiction writer George Allan England, a towering figure in pulp-fiction history! England (1877-1936) was a prolific author who penned stories and articles for pulps and slicks alike during his lengthy career. A dedicated socialist, he often worked his political philosophy into his speculative fiction. England is best known for his "Darkness and Dawn" trilogy pitting survivors of a great cataclysm against savage sub-humans in a dystopian future. He was a mainstay of the such important early pulps as The Argosy and The All-Story.The "Forgotten Classics of Pulp Fiction" series brings back into print ten outstanding novels originally published in rough-paper magazines that flourished during the early decades of the 20th century.
