However comically exaggerated, the unmistakable echoes of real problems and possibilities in Souvestre's satire make this book science fiction's earliest warning against the dangers of mechanization in a society ruled by consumerism.

Clarke specialized in future-war fiction and his 1966 work Voices Prophesying War is recognized as a major contribution. "I. F. Clarke (1918–2009)".

It’s one of the best examples of what people see as a Science Fiction writer’s job: predicting the future. If only it were that easy. Humans gamble constantly, not just on games of chance, but on how the future will turn out in every aspect of society.
