About this ebook

One of the first novels about interplanetary travel, A Honeymoon in Space takes readers on a journey across the solar system

Lenox, the Earl of Redgrave, has made the greatest scientific discovery in the history of the world: a flying ship with the power to break free of Earth’s gravity and take to the stars. But before he uses it to expand humanity’s understanding of the universe, he has some personal business to attend to—namely, wooing an old flame.
The lady in question is Zaidie, the daughter of Lenox’s colleague Professor Rennick. With Zaidie about to be forced into a loveless marriage, Lenox knows he must do something drastic. He steals her away and takes her out of this world—literally. Griffith’s accounts of other planets are spectacularly engaging—from subterranean civilizations on the moon to the warlike Martians to the musical inhabitants of Venus. This remarkable adventure makes for a memorable honeymoon indeed.
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

George Griffith (1857–1906) was one of Britain’s great writers of science fiction and a noted explorer. After working as a schoolmaster in his twenties, Griffith found fame with the publication of The Angel of the Revolution, an account of a terrorist group that uses air warfare to take over the world. Griffith was also an avid explorer, setting the record for voyaging around the world when he performed the feat in just sixty-five days.
