Episode #136 – Edison’s Conquest Ep 1 – Serviss is Selling

Support the podcast on Patreon and get every episode a week early and other fun stuff!

Our first reading of Garrett P. Serviss’ Edison’s Conquest of Mars is a real cracker jack, a tip-top lally-cooler! 

Truly, an enjoyable book if for nothing more than the action movie quipping of Professor Sylvanus P. Thompson.

All the departments are here, as well as a description of Mike’s brother-in-law’s actual Edison cylinder mechanism! (Possible Patreon extra demonstration of it to come.)

Buy the book here or read for free online.

Reading assignment: Read up until “The Prisoner Teaches” in chapter 9
