Darkness and Dawn is a science fiction trilogy by George Allan England. It tells the story of two modern people who struggle to rebuild civilization after awaking one thousand years on from the horrific impact of a meteor that caused devastation across the entire world. All three volumes, "The Vacant World" (1912), "Beyond the Great Oblivion" (1913) and "Afterglow" (1914), are included in this edition. "The islands in the harbor, too, were thickly overgrown. On Ellis, no sign of the immigrant station remained. Castle William was quite gone. And with a gasp of dismay and pain, Beatrice pointed out the fact that no longer Liberty held her bronze torch aloft. Save for a black, misshapen mass protruding through the tree-tops, the huge gift of France was no more."
