London, Jack: The Star Rover (The Jacket. v1. 20 Sep 2022

This science fiction novel involves both mysticism and reincarnation.

A framing story is told in the first person by Darrell Standing, a university professor serving life imprisonment in San Quentin for murder. Prison officials try to break his spirit by means of a torture device called “the jacket,” a canvas jacket which can be tightly laced so as to compress the whole body, inducing angina. (The jacket was actually used at San Quentin at the time; Jack London’s descriptions of it were based on interviews with a former convict.) Standing discovers how to withstand the torture by entering a kind of trance state, in which he walks among the stars and experiences portions of past lives.

============
John Griffith Chaney (January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916), better known as Jack London, was an American novelist, journalist, and activist. A pioneer of commercial fiction and American magazines, he was one of the first American authors to become an international celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing.

His most famous works are adventure stories set in in Alaska and the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush, such as The Call of the Wild, White Fang, “To Build a Fire”, “An Odyssey of the North”, and “Love of Life”. He also wrote about the South Pacific and about adventures at sea. He was also an innovator in the genre that would later become known as science fiction, and wrote tales of fantasy and mystery & suspense.

============
The Star Rover was originally published in 1915. (published as The Jacket in the UK.) This book is in the public domain worldwide, because the author died more than 100 years ago, and it was published prior to 1927.
