Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Paradise and Iron
by Miles J. Breuer

"The early models of even a brilliant invention are at best only crude affairs, often within an exceedingly short time perfected beyond recognition. This is just as true of the airplane as it is of the automobile and the telephone and numerous other mechanical inventions that we now take quite for granted. For many years there has been much talk about building thought machines. Even now there are calculating machines that quickly solve mathematical problems that would otherwise take eminent mathematicians and skilled computators months to solve. And constant improvements are being made on these mechanical “robot” mathematicians."

('Paradise and Iron' by Miles Breuer)

"It is a far-fetched vision , perhaps, to think of a time when the thought-machine, which now can be worked with very little supervision, might some time get to a point where it can make suggestions for its own improvement — mathematically figured out improvements, of course — but it is not impossible. And if and when that happens, who can forecast the future of mechanical progress? In this complete, novel, Dr. Breuer gives us, in good literary style, a wealth of absorbing elaborations on the possibilities of the machine age, which makes the story one of unusual scientific interest."
