John Russell Fearn

The Intelligence Gigantic: Expanded Edition

Three scientists proposed to construct a synthetic man, endowed with some five times the intelligence of the ordinary human being. This creature matures quickly, and eventually there steps into being a synthetic man — “The Intelligence Gigantic.” His intellectuality and his occult powers are impressive, but are backed by no humanity, no thought of the happiness of mankind. He has the desire and the power to control the whole world of humanity and to operate the life of the world on principles of arid mech­anism and absolute slavery…
Presenting John Russell Fearn's classic debut novel, together with an early novelette “Climatica,” both of which introduced new concepts to science fiction, including superhuman intelligence and weather control!

John Russell Fearn (1908–1960) is noted for such grandly extravagant science fiction as “The Intelligence Gigantic,” “The Liners of Time,” “Mathematica,” and the Golden Amazon series.

He has always had a substantial cult following and has been popular in translation around the world.
