Published in 1906 in the UK by Greening & Co., Ltd. A fantastic allegory of evil and judgment after death. The transfer of the spirit of a brutish man, too evil for Heaven but not quite bad enough for Hell, to an unspecified planet (a sort of Purgatory) where he must lead a new life in a bloodthirsty, mediaeval civilization. The type of interplanetary fiction which, like Elizabeth Whiteley's THE DEVIL'S THRONE (Digby, Long 1903), was to lead to David Lindsay's classic metaphysical fantasy A VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS (Methuen 1920).
