Nicholson, Joseph Shield: Thoth. HTML v1, 14 Mar 2009
'Thoth: a romance' (1888)
"One of the major science-fiction novels of the nineteenth-century" - Everett F. Bleiler
Daphne is rescued by a mysterious man from a plague in ancient Athens, and transported to a city somewhere in Africa which he rules. The city is full of technological wonders far beyond those of Daphne's Greece, and she is invited by him to become his queen. However, Daphne soon discovers that dark secrets lie behind the marvels she has seen; and her powerful stranger is secretly plotting the destruction of all mankind!
Joseph Shield Nicholson (1850-1927) was a highly regarded British economist, political theorist and academic. The author of many books and articles on economic theory, he published 'Thoth' anonymously.
The Preface explains the author's intentions, and dispels the idea that it was inspired by Rider Haggard's 'She'.
The book has, as an Appendix, the final chapter of the original version.

It has been proof read to eliminate many transcription errors; and I would be grateful to know if any more are found.
