Американский писатель Джек Лондон (наст. имя Джон Гриффит; 1876—1916) прошел противоречивый и сложный творческий путь. В детстве он рано вынужден был искать заработок. Некоторое время бродяжничал, плавал матросом на промысловой шхуне, переменил множество профессий и, наконец, зараженный «золотой лихорадкой», отправился на Аляску. Золотоискательство стало темой первых его рассказов, довольно скоро принесших ему широкую известность. Романтика борьбы человека с природой вносит в произведения Лондона элементы, характерные для приключенческого жанра. Межзвёздный скиталец — роман американского писателя Джека Лондона, опубликованный в 1915 году. История рассказывается от первого лица заключённым тюрьмы Сан-Квентин (профессором агрономии Дэррелом Стэндингом), приговорённым к смертной казни. Долгое время Дэррел пробыл в одиночной камере, где многократно подвергался пыткам так называемой «смирительной курткой» — куском брезента, туго стягивающим всё тело по принципу шнуровки, вызывающим стенокардию. Пытаясь смягчить испытываемые мучения, Стэндинг пробует метод «малой смерти» (своего рода состояние транса), подсказанный ему другим заключённым с помощью перестукивания. В результате он путешествует среди звёзд, а потом испытывает опыт многих своих прошлых воплощений. Описание путешествий по своим прошлым жизням представляет собой основной объём книги.
