Always interesting to read old science or pseudo-science fiction. In the book “When the World Screamed” Professor Challenger is still brilliant.

Here is flies such “hedgehog” in space and feeds on ether, and we, people, parasite on its surface without his knowledge. And here, in his mad genius Professor for a challenge decided to say “hedgehog” about yourself. If you have an idea then it must be realized, and in complete secrecy. The main thing is no woman didn’t know because “he knows a woman knows the world.” Well and without throwing out journalists it too anywhere.
