Romances of the future, however fantastic they may be, have for most of us a perennial if mild interest, since they are born of a very common feeling-a sense of dissatisfaction with the existing order of things, combined with a vague faith in or hope of a better one to come.

Do not pay for this. There are free versions available. This story was written in the early 1900s and is a little dated., but still worth a look.
