Peterborough, Ontario: Broadview Press, 2002. 208 pp. $12.95 (US). THIS CONVENIENT PAPERBACK VERSION of Edward Bulwer-Lytton's The Coming Race (1871) marks an important recognition by Broadview Press to make more accessible a study edition of this fascinating and thought-provoking utopian/SF novel. Born in London in 1803, Bulwer-Lytton--known after 1866 as Baron Lytton of Knebworth--writes his utopia near the end of a life-long political and literary career. His tale responds to the Victorian tradition of idealism and brings to life a society called the Vril-ya, a race that believes it has reached the epitome of its potential for perfection. In many ways, Vril-ya represents a surpassing of humanity, especially evident in the narrator's naive perspective on certain aspects of this society's evolved technologies, ideologies, philosophies, and physiognomies.
