Just as Christopher Columbus's journeys to the new world changed human civilization forever, so too would the power to travel freely across the universe alter the parameters of our collective existence. Garrett P. Serviss's tale of a group of intrepid explorers who harness what they call "inter-atomic energy" to travel from Earth to Venus is a fun, fast read.
