Tarrano Conqueror — A science fiction novel by Ray Cummings.
Tarrano Conqueror – a tale of the 2430 year. On the planet Venus, Tarrano has taken control of that world. Now he is invading the Earth and Mars in his mad desire to be the Emperor of all three worlds.
A time somewhat farther beyond our present-day era than we are beyond Columbus’ discovery of America. Cummings wanted to create for you the impression that you have suddenly plunged forward into that time. To give you the feeling Columbus might have had could he have read a novel of our present-day life.
If you find parts of this tale unusual, please remember that we are living now in a comparatively ignorant day. The tale not intended to be fantastic or full of new and strange ideas. Cummings used nothing but those developments of our present-day civilization. We are all looking forward as logical probabilities. Woven them into a picture of what life in America very probably will be five hundred years from now.
The tale intended to be only a love story of adventure and romance. She not for you, but for that future audience.
