A COLUMBUS OF SPACE

BY GARRETT P. SERVISS



[Illustration: "Standing on the steps ... was a creature shaped like a
man, but more savage than a gorilla."]


TO THE READERS OF
JULES VERNE'S ROMANCES
THIS STORY IS DEDICATED


Not because the author flatters himself that he can walk in the Footsteps
of that Immortal Dreamer, but because, like Jules Verne, he believes that
the World of Imagination is as legitimate a Domain of the Human Mind as
the World of Fact.
