"Victorian scientists discover a volatile substance in an Antarctic meteorite, and use it to win the Crimean War. From this stems a glorious new development for the British Empire, involving land leviathans and a flight to the Moon, although all is not as rosy as it seems." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 16.
