In search of a better world, power can corrupt even the smartest of us

Featuring stories by Robert Louis Stevenson, H P Lovecraft, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mary Shelley, Emma Vane & more.

Science has brought us many benefits for our health, our understanding, and our quality of life in all sorts of positive ways.  We are all the better for it.  But there is also a darker side when science reaches into the shadows.  It claims that a fuller knowledge would benefit everyone, it must investigate.  But, let’s be honest, some in science have lost their true calling and their ideas and notions come from these darker impulses.  Their thoughts become muddled, their path more for themselves than for us.
