This Series contains 2 existing novels:
1) The Angel of the Revolution
An Evil Emperor. A Titanic Struggle. Daring Rescues. Flying Ships. Mind Control. A Small Band Of Rebels Led By A Beautiful Woman. When young inventor Richard Arnold cracks the problem of heavier than air flight in 1903, his discovery becomes the key tool of The Brotherhood Of Freedom, a worldwide rebellion against society, focused against the cruelties of the Russian Tsar. Arnold soon falls under the spell of Natasha, known within The Brotherhood as The Angel Of The Revolution, and uses his airships in daring rescues, flights of exploration, and key battles in the World War between the Anglo- Teutonic Alliance. Originally published serially in Pearson's Magazine in 1893, Tower published the novel form in 1894 with the title The Angel Of The Revolution: A Tale Of The Coming Terror. This edition has reset the text, but retained every word and illustration from the Tower editions
2) Olga Romanoff
The Empire Strikes Back, The Force, And A Death Star: All Written In 1893. "Our empire is not bounded by the roofs of subterranean caverns, but only by the limits of the planet's atmosphere. We can soar beyond the clouds and dive beneath the seas. We have realised what he called the Vril force as a sober, scientific fact; and if I thought that you, for instance, were my enemy, I could strike you dead without so much as laying a hand on you. And if a dozen like you tried to overcome me by superior brute force, they would all meet with the same fate." Over a century of peace follows the Armageddon of 1904 detailed in Tsar Wars Episode One: Angel of the Revolution. The fifth generation of the Brotherhood of Freedom enforces the peace with flying ships and the mighty Vril-Force-until the last living child of the Tsar's line, Olga Romanoff, "beautiful beyond description and evil beyond comprehention," strikes back in revenge and plunges the world back into war. Will the arrival of a Death Star throw the world into total chaos? Tsar Wars Episode Two: Syren Of The Skies was originally published in 1894 under the title Olga Romanoff, or Syren of the Skies by Tower. This publication includes the complete original text and illustrations.
