Discussions: Last and First Men, by Olaf Stapledon

May 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

We'll discuss "Last and First Men" by Olaf Stapledon.

From wikipedia: "Last and First Men: A Story of the Near and Far Future is a "future history" science fiction novel written in 1930 by the British author Olaf Stapledon. A work of unprecedented scale in the genre, it describes the history of humanity from the present onwards across two billion years[1] and eighteen distinct human species, of which our own is the first. The book employs a narrative conceit that, under subtle inspiration, the novelist has unknowingly been dictated a channelled text from the last human species."
