Book Synopsis

Claimed (1920) is a science fiction novel by Francis Stevens. Using her well-known pseudonym, Gertrude Barrows Bennett published some of the twentieth century's greatest science fiction stories and novels. Claimed, her final novel, has been recognized as a powerful tale of dark fantasy for its combination of nautical adventure and the occult, and remains central to Stevens' reputation as a pioneering author of fantasy and science fiction. "From where we stood the illusion of ruins was nearly perfect, and indeed--who knows?--we may to-day have looked upon the last surviving trace of some ancient city, flung up from the abyss that engulfed it ages before the brief history we have of the race of man began." On a voyage at sea, a merchant vessel chances upon a recently formed volcanic island. Unable to stay for long, mesmerized by the geometric rock formations reaching their pinnacle at its smoldering center, they take a memento of their discovery: a small, rectangular block of a metallic green color, perfect for carving into a sea chest. Eventually, the artifact makes its way into the collection of Jesse J. Robinson, a famous antiquarian from Tremont, a town located along the Delaware River. When Robinson and his niece Leilah fall victim to powerful hallucinations, Doctor John Vanaman is brought in to help. Soon, he launches an investigation into the nature of the box, tracking down its original owner and the dealer who sold it to Robinson. To his horror, they seem to have succumbed to the same madness plaguing the antiquarian's home. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Francis Stevens' Claimed is a classic work of American science fiction reimagined for modern readers.
