Across the Zodiac: The Story of a Wrecked Record, Volume 1


This two-volume novel is credited as an originator of the "sword and planet" sub-genre. Greg's tale details the development of an anti-gravity technology called apergy. The narrator uses it to travel to Mars in 1830 in a spacecraft named the Astronaut. The Martians he meets are short, diminutive creatures who do not believe that the narrator is from another planet. The book contains what was probably the first alien language in any work of fiction.
