Book Description:
Fitz James O'Brien lived only 33 years from 1828 till 1862 but in his brief life he left a mark that endures today. O'Brien endures because he was a remarkable writer. Remarkable indeed! He had a way of blending of hard fact with almost fanciful fantasy, juxtaposing technology and mysticism, creating convincing and 'scientific' settings that play against the otherworldly romance. For all the weird fancifulness these days O'Brien is read mostly as a successor to Poe his work has qualities we now associate with science fiction: O'Brien clearly researched the field of microscopy before he wrote _The Diamond Lens_; it reads in places like hard SF.
