Jane C. Loudon
Set in 2126, The Mummy!: A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century explores a society led by advanced technology but driven by ego, greed and self-preservation. It’s a vivid clash of genres featuring an old tale with a new twist.
In the distant future, society has become enthralled by technology. It’s an integral part of life that has changed the way humans interact. Autonomous machines have a visible presence, taking critical jobs in the workforce. Doctors and lawyers have been replaced by steam-powered devices, as well as farmers who no longer plant or plow. The author presents an early form of the internet that can connect anyone at any time. With all these advancements, mankind has become detached and corrupt. It’s up to Cheops, a reanimated corpse, to make a way in this questionable age.
Jane Loudon was a young visionary writer who was ahead of her time. Her version of The Mummy features a speculative world that eerily embodies twenty-first century society. It’s a brilliant work that exposes humanity at its core.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Mummy!: A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century is both modern and readable.
