By. Garrett P. Serviss.

By. The second morning after the conversation between Cosmo Versal andJoseph Smith, New York was startled by seeing, in huge red letters, onevery blank wall, on the bare flanks of towering sky-scrapers, on thelofty stations of aeroplane lines, on bill-boards, fences,advertising-boards along suburban roads, in the Subway stations, andfluttering from strings of kites over the city, the t

Almost ever since the deluge stopped, I think; but it was only last nightthat Waters got on the track of it, and only now that he told me. Thisfellow that Waters heard Campo talking to is plainly a new recruit. I saythere are a dozen, because Waters has found out that number; but I don'tknow but that there may be a hundred. Wait," whispered Cosmo. The pistols go at a pull. We can sweep down adozen in ten seconds. Let them all get in sight first. Half a minute later there were twelve men climbing the steps and cautiouslylooking up.

The radio-control, which is so familiarin its thousand applications to-day, was then a new thing, having beeninvented only a year or so before the deluge, and De Beauxchamps's formof the apparatus was crude. The underlying principle, however, was thesame as that now n through a metallic wall ofimpulses capable of being turned into mechanic energy.

Garrett P. Serviss was an American astronomer who helped popularize science fiction as a genre with his works. In The Second Deluge, filed with scenes of panic and disaster, the entire surface of the earth is submerged when the solar system enters a watery nebula, and only scientist-hero Cosmo Versal, and a small group of friends who believe in him survive by flying above the flood in a newly invented skyship.

I liked this book because in the style of Jules Verne, the writer speculated about what might happen should a second flood occur. Written over 100 years ago, the presentation of human nature under threat was imaginative and surprisingly modern. In this time of natural threats to humanity, this one is worth a read to think about how technology was a partial solution, although fanciful to us in the digital age.

I've read most of Serviss' work and this in my opinion is his worst. It has a lot of amazing imagery and fascinating ideas, but in the end it feels rushed and overly clumsy with Serviss grasping desperately to try and make everything tie together in the end.
