I awoke to find the America I knew a total wreck—to find Americans a hunted race in their own land, hiding in the dense forests that covered the shattered and leveled ruins of their once magnificent cities, desperately preserving, and struggling to develop in their secret retreats, the remnants of their culture and science—and the undying flame of their sturdy independence.

World domination was in the hands of Mongolians and the center of world power lay in inland China, with Americans one of the few races of mankind unsubdued—and it must be admitted in fairness to the truth, not worth the trouble of subduing in the eyes of the Han Airlords who ruled North America as titular tributaries of the Most Magnificent.

Philip Francis Nowlan (1888-1940) was a Pennsylvania-based journalist and science fiction author, best known as the creator of one of the genre’s most well-known Radium Age (1904-33) characters: Buck Rogers. Whose popularity quickly dominated comic strip and radio serials of the early 20th century, culminating with the late-70s television series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. But before he was Buck, he made his debut as Anthony Rogers in the pulp magazine Amazing Stories. Where, after becoming trapped in a coal mine collapse and falling into suspended animation, Rogers awakens in the 25th century to discover the United States has been conquered by a race of futuristic Mongols known as the Airlords of Han. Together with warrior girl Wilma Deering, Rogers uses his hard-won 20th century war strategies to ignite an explosive crusade for a new and free 25th-century America.

"The re-presentation of these original Buck Rogers stories secures for Philip Francis Nowlan the important place he deserves as a shaper of modern science fiction."
