The Onslaught From Venus by Frank Phillips:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"Mr. Phillips has a knack of inventing new instruments that are as new to literature as they are to science, and there is no denying that his scientific creations are plausible and win be duplicated when the various arts have caught up with his scientific prognostications."


('The Onslaught From Venus' by Frank Phillips)

"It is always most interesting to us to speculate on what would happen if some alien intelligence from another world granting that it exists would invade this planet. Many authors have tried their hand at such a theme, but few are as forceful and versatile in picturing such a conflict as is the present author.
