"Writing in the middle of World War II, the narrator, 'F. W.,' travels through the future and writes its history. As the end of the universe approaches, men come closer to God and to the higher life for which they are destined. This deeply philosophic, sometimes puzzling, work is somewhat peripheral to the utopian tradition in the same way as Stapledon's 'Last and First Men'" - Arthur O. Lewis, "Utopian Literature in the Pennsylvania State university Libraries: A Selected Bibliography"
