Science Fiction Classic #2--"The Runaway Skyscraper" by Murray Leinster

Science Fiction Classic--"The Runaway Skyscraper" by Murray Leinster

In this second Science Fiction classic, we have, what I consider, the best of Murray Leinster’s short stories:

The Runaway Skyscraper"-- Murray Leinster (first published in Argosy, February 1919)

Note: This was Leinster’s first published work.

“I don’t know how to explain it,” he said uncomfortably, “but it’s obvious that my first sunrise was all wrong. The speed of the Earth’s rotation can’t have been increased, because if it had to the extent we see, we’d have been thrown off into space long ago. But—have you read anything about the Fourth Dimension?”

This entire story is available in the Science Fiction anthology, "Wondrous Beginnings" from DAW Books as well.

If you’re enjoying this series of Science Fiction short story excerpts, I urge you to leave a few comments to let me know.
